More Murders Now in London Than in New York City

Historically, London has had a murder rate than ranges from half to one-twentieth of the number of people killed in New York City since the 1800’s. Now it surpasses NYC, not just for murders, but rape as well. In fact, rape in London is triple the number in NYC. These increases are due in large part to the fact that Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan ordered police to stop searching for weapons on non-white suspects.  Also, police are unwilling to confront suspects knowing they will not be supported by their departments.  Cressida Dick, who heads up the London police force, has refused to acknowledge that Pakistani Muslim grooming gangs are a problem.  She says they have been in Britain for “centuries and centuries and centuries.” The rise in crime and violence, she says, is caused by social media – and the solution, of course, is more control over the Internet and more money for a larger police force.

London has overtaken New York City for number of murders for the first time in over 200 years under the mayoralty of Labour’s Sadiq Khan.

Britain’s multicultural capital edged ahead of the American city — once so notorious for its high crime rates that it was chosen as the setting for Charles Bronson’s Death Wish –– in February, The Times reports.

London saw 15 killings to New York’s 14 over the course of the month, and appears to have outstripped ‘Gotham’ yet again in March, with 22 killings to 21.

Historically, London has had a murder rate per person between half and one-twentieth of New York’s since 1800, according to FBI data and studies by University of California researcher Eric Monkkonen.

The change is partly a consequence of Mayor Khan’s campaign against using stop and search on ethnic minorities, with London police chief Cressida Dick admitting that constables have become “fearful” of confronting suspects as they “might get into trouble or might not be supported if they had a complaint”.

Figures released last year showed London was already the more dangerous of the two cities for almost every other category of violent and sexual crime, with Londoners six times more likely to be burgled than New Yorkers, three times more likely to be raped, and one and a half times more likely to be robbed.

The numbers fly in the face of Mayor Khan’s claim that London is “the safest global city in the world, and one of the safest cities in the world” in 2017.

This assertion already appeared highly questionable after a spate of radical Islamic terror attacks and an admission that hundreds of Islamic State volunteers have returned to the capital and are not being monitored, alongside disturbing developments such as the city being crowned “acid attack capital of the world” following an epidemic of assaults using corrosive substances.
