The 2aGuy dropped a a link to a Telegraph item reporting violent crime ub the United Kingdom is rising.
The Telegraph does not like pop-up blockers, but there is a tiny “close” in the bottom right of the pop-up box, so you can read the re report, which is factual.
Violent crime in England is at 2,900 crimes per 100,000 population (29 per 1,000) up by 300 in a year. The numbers provided by the British police to their Office of National Statistics indicate violent crime is rising at a rate of 27% per year, or 1 percent every two weeks!
So despite the numbers farther down the page, the British police claim their cirme rates are falling – even as they admit almost every category of cirme, even robbing people with a fountain pen, is on the rise.
So with that, click on over and check out the facts the British media will bring you, but the British authorities hotly deny. England (and Wales) cannot compare to Venezuela, where the violent crime rate is above 40,000 per 100,000 population, but at 2,900 violent crimes per 100,000 population, it is by far the most violent industrialized society on earth.
Because a disarmed society is a rude and violent society.
And let me wave the Stetson at Bill, the 2A guy, for the link, and the comment that impelled thisw post. I appreciate all the help I can get.
