Sad that Romanian bouncer died, the video of him fighting 9 cunts showed him knocking them all over the place. Criminal he did not get issued a stab vest where he was working, it was meant to have drawn many gangsters and the like.

Yea he did well considering the circumstances, RIP to the poor guy. Looks like if those twats didn't have knives, he would have battered most of them.

As with American cities just stay away from the black areas and black people and you'll be safe in London. Those are the (hate) facts.
The assailants in the video of the Romanian bouncer being stabbed, weren't black, they looked of Asian/middle eastern descent.

Probably, everywhere has its degenerates and a city the size of London will have a lot more than most, wasn't there an article last year that London had more murders than New York? The lack of police presence doesn't help either, it makes the cunts more bold, even up here in a town of 100,000 there's been a rise in gobshites causing criminal damage and assaulting people because there's about 24 full time officers here and the remaining PCSO's just get laughed at so where's the deterrent?

Yeah, it was a ridiculous headline that meant fuck all. It was more murders for a month or so, but by the end of the year NYC had around double the total number of murders that London had.



This graph also shows that while the London murder rate has risen last year, it is still lower than every year from 2003 to 2010.

Conclusion: Stop being a pussy.
An interesting graph to use since the knife crime epidemic in London happened in 2018 and this graph is only relevant up to March 2018. The trend may or may not have continued into 2018, but we if you want us to stop being pussies you're going to need to show us more data. This graph also doesn't distinguish between knife related murders and murder by other means. Conclusion: Learn how to graph.

No it didn't. The "knife epidemic" in London during 2018 was lower than it was in London from 2003 - 2008. The per capita murder rate in London 2003 was DOUBLE what it was in 2018.

If we ignore per capita and do it off raw totals, then 2018 was the worst year since 2008. But it had 22 fewer than in 2008. In absolute numbers, every year from 1990 to 2008 had more murders than 2018. Here is a graph of just 2003 to 2018...

I'm willing to concede the point it's just that the other graph that was presented wasn't relevant to 2018 since it didn't include any statistics for 2018. That was the point I was making. By knife-crime epidemic, what I really meant was the increased media stories related to London knife crime in 2018, which could be perceived as an epidemic or 'panic' about knife crime. I suppose the most interesting graph would be a year-by-year comparison of the ratio of media stories about London knife crime to actual London knife crime, and I'm guessing a larger percentage of London knife crimes in 2018 were reported on than in other years.. The media has a very powerful ability to create the impression in people's minds that a certain problem is increasing/getting worse by simply reporting it more often and giving the reports more prominence.

That's fair enough. Actual stabbing deaths...there were more slightly less in 2018 than in 2017...just more murders in total. Also, some really random ones that are not part of the youth gang wars etc. A 52 year old plumber who got into an argument with a 67 year old customer about how long he took for lunch on a job...and the pensioner stabbed the plumber to death. A few women murdered by partners etc.

I think the number of youths stabbed to death last year was less than 50. Which is still way too many, but it's not quite the knife murder avalanche that the press are implying. At the same time, the attention might be a good thing. It has made the mayor back track on banning stop and search, it's led to much funds for the police to combat it and it puts the focus on the main problem of murder in the capital rather than idiots trying to pretend that we have a police problem akin to the US where we need a BLM movement here.

So a 14 year old was rammed off his moped and stabbed to death by 3 blokes in broad daylight.

Horrible stuff.
