    Hate to be that guy, but please add your own thoughts. Not just a link and 0 analysis and hoping this turns into a shit show for you to enjoy

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...ers-rate-new-york-drugs-cocaine-a8471976.html

    A better TS:

    Murders in London earlier in the year hit a recent high and even surpassed New York City, averaged 15 murders a month the first 5 months on the year. If recent trends can give some hope, June and July murders were 6 per month bring it back to where they historically have been. Still, the city is in route to a 28% rise in killings due in large part to "street slayings"

    Of course, the dumbass UKers (in my opinion) spend about a quarter of the article talking about talking to young children about knife violence from a young age, and to discourage anyone from carrying one for protection

    Most of their killings seem to be gang or drug related, possibly caused by an increase in cocaine use among the middle class driving the demand and competition for the illegal drug up, but a cause this year of the upwards blip has been in street stabbings of people who know each other and even friendly, at least at one point

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_London

    Crime was high as shit in the 90s and 2000s comparatively to now (160 to 190 yearly total) before dipping in year 2006. It dropped below 100 by year 2012 hovered in the 80s till 2015 before climbing above 100..

    so yeah good luck trying to find a pattern year to year.. lol

    This was a great death. This guy killed a 15 year old who had nothing to do with gangs, it was the wrong guy. Karma got him.

    This part's hilarious. I grew up in one of the most impoverished areas in the UK, funnily enough, me or my friends never went round stabbing/shooting each other over petty squabbles.

    These kids don't know what deprived fucking means.

    If we assume New York and London are the same in terms of violent crime then there are 23 other states in the US that are more violent than London. Our most "violent" city is equal to only the 24th most violent in USA.
    London is safer than nearly half of USA. The rest of the UK even safer.

    So yeah, when it comes to violence USA is far worse. Just look at New Mexico, Alaska and cities like Chicago.

    If it's gang bangers killing each other other who cares.

    It's the lifestyle they choose.

    Lack of funding for the police doesn’t help. Never see coppers walking the streets, just PCSO twats.

    That is because English people are violent by nature. Its a side effect of all the inbreeding taking place.
    I am not sure about the exact law but in England, you can only marry someone if you are at least 1/3 related.

    That's also why the US has so much crime and murder. Many are still decent of inbreeds.
    Thats why the crime is so high in the South.

    Personally, I prefer to read a thread not trying to lead me into a conclusion like a puppy on a leash.

    Baltimore is 1/13 the population of London and has 164 murders this year already.

    Cops are probably too busy arresting people for offensive social media posts to go after the gangs.
