Case in point, a man was killed and two others injured in a stabbing attack outside Parsons Green Tube station in London on Monday night. Last month there was a terrorist attack at the same Tube station.
Britain’s 3 largest regions, London, West Midlands and Greater Manchester, are in the grips of a violent crime epidemic.
The latest figures for London show between May-July 2017 there were 3,755 knife-related crimes committed, that’s up from 2,880 during the same time period in 2016.
Gun crime is also on the rise, with 727 gun-related offences taking place between May-July 2017, compared with 665 the previous year.
But this rampant, deadly crime wave has spread across Britain – look at Birmingham: between June and August this year there have been 1,285 knife crimes and 10 fatalities.
