Well, yes, this may sound bad, but always remember the residents of the UK have pretty much all been disarmed, and that certainly is a positive.

Zitat
On Wednesday, London police responded to separate stabbings within hours of each other, the victims, a young boy believed to be in his teens and a man, were sent to the hospital with life-threatening or serious stab wounds.

That makes two attacks this morning, five this week...and more than 39,000 in just six months.

Quietly, a brutal, deadly knife attack epidemic is overwhelming residents and police forces throughout the United Kingdom.

Of the five people stabbed this week, the youngest was 15-year-old Jay Hughes, who was attacked outside a chicken shop in broad daylight.

During the first six months of the year, police recorded 39,332 knife crime offenses -- a 12 percent increase over last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. Other violent crimes, including murder and robbery, also increased by double-digit percentages.

Data also showed the number of homicides in which a knife or sharp instrument was used increased by 25 percent in the last year, ONS said.

To suggest in any way this spike in knife attacks results from the mass migration of a certain populace into the UK is not correct at all, and to state otherwise is racism (even if true).

Don't worry Sadiq Khan and the UK have it all under control, i.e. is they have time left over from tracking down racists and those who are guilty of hate crimes against a certain populace.


London's Mayor Declares Intense New 'Knife Control' Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings
The police will now stop and frisk people believed to be carrying knives.

An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new "knife control" policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.

The "tough, immediate" measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.

Khan announced Friday that the city has created a "violent crime taskforce of 120 officers" tasked with rooting out knife-wielding individuals in public spaces, and is pumping nearly $50 million into the Metropolitan Police department so that they can better arm themselves against knife attacks. He's also empowering the Met Police to introduce "targeted patrols with extra stop and search powers for areas worst-affected," according to a statement.

and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.

Which sounds suspiciously like what in the US is called "stop-and-frisk", a practice Liberals find abhorrent because, though it works in reducing violence, it seems to be disproportionately aimed at one racial group which shall remain unidentified. Khan and Co will not be constrained by such Constitutional niceties, but shall soon find they are directing their attention primarily at a certain religious group which shall also remain unidentified.
