Knife crime has hit a new record high in England and Wales, rising 8% on the previous year new figures show.
"The figures for police-recorded crime revealed there were 43,516 police-recorded offences involving a knife or sharp instrument, which is the highest since comparable records began in 2011," reports Sky News.
As I have relentlessly argued, the causes of this epidemic are easily identifiable.
– The scaling back of "stop and search" because it's "racist".
– The ongoing emasculation of UK police forces who are being trained that mean words and 'hate crime' is more important than people dying.
– Fatherless black homes.
– UK street gangs becoming more violent to compete with immigrants from countries like Congo and Somalia.
– The ongoing mass importation of people from violent countries in general.
– Drill rap music that encourages young people to commit murder.
– Political leaders like Sadiq Khan refusing to even admit there's a problem to protect their own pathetic legacies.
