UK Crime Rate Soars as 90% of Recorded Crimes Go Uncharged
Homicide, sexual assaults, and violent attacks are out of control in Sadiq Kahn's London
Violent crimes rates are soaring to unprecedented levels in the UK as the recorded number of crimes that go uncharged spirals out of control.
Homicide's and other violent crimes such as sexual assaults, and knife and gun attacks are continuing to rise in the United Kingdom.
Worryingly, a shocking 90% of recorded offenses do not result in charges being filed.
The percentage has fallen two points in just a year to 9%, which down from 15% in 2015.
The murder rate is skyrocketing in Sadiq Kahn's London as the British capital overtook New York earlier this year for the rate of homicides.
FMS reports: Since March of this year and the 12 months before, only 443,000 crimes out of 4.6 million recorded resulted in charges.
Notably, the number of recorded crimes rose by 11% to 5.5 million offenses – the highest level in over a decade.
As it stands, fewer than 1 in 10 of recorded crimes result in a charge, doing little to abate fear that England is undergoing an epidemic of violent crime.
“High-harm” violent offenses involving weapons have soared – with knife, gun, and homicide rates rising rapidly.
Official figures reported by the Office for National Statistics detail that – even excluding incidents with multiple victims, such as the terror attacks in London or Manchester – homicides rose 12% from 74 to 701 in just the span of a year.
I am doing everything I can to tackle this scourge in our communities. Keeping the country safe should be the Government’s priority too, and it is time ministers stopped shirking this responsibility…
Before being elected in 2016, Khan promised to “challenge gang culture and knife crime head on”.
However, it comes as no surprise Khan attempted to place the blame elsewhere after making comments claiming that terrorism is “part and parcel of living in a big city”.
Through Khan’s utter refusal to look at the reality before him, the prognosis for the United Kingdom doesn’t look good.
Until politically-correct politicians can admit and recognize they created the crisis they are experiencing first-hand, crime and homicide rates – and likely even terrorist acts – will continue to trend upward in the U.K.
