It Does Not Seem Possible, But violent Crime Is Rising IN England

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!

as in Figure 1 at this link.

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.

    What is amazing if you read that article is the percent increases that they document…..I have been telling anti gunners that I debate that decades of the social welfare state creating single teenage girls into the mothers of young males…with no father in the home…was eventually going to bite them…..and now it is starting to happen….

    The part that amazes me is the number of British who will look at an official publication their own government puts on the web and then dismisses it as a fraud. If “Truth makes you free” an astonishg percentage of the English are destined to remain slaves to crime in perpetuity.
