I was going to put this in the megathread, but this should be here. This is what happens when you cripple law abiding citizens. No guns, no knives, don't protect yourself

Police recorded 732 homicides in England and Wales last year, the highest total in a decade, according to official new figures.

It comes as the number of offences involving knives or sharp instruments increased by 6% in 2018 compared to the previous 12 months.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the number of homicides rose by 12% last year to the highest total in any calendar year since 2007.

The figures for 2018 also revealed:

:: Robbery offences increased by 11% to a total of 82,566

Then a butter knife is better, because you can also use it for toast :)

Who could have thought that leaving an entire population incapable of defending themselves would have bad consequences ?
Why history is chock full of examples of it leading to a utopian state.
I can't find a damn one , but numbnut progressives say it's true, so it must be.

Don't know if it's still the case, but the Brits used to only count it as a homicide if there was a conviction. So the number is likely a lot higher.

Just a reminder that the UK cooks its crime statistics by only listing the crimes which have resulted in convictions in court. Any open or unsolved cases aren't included. Even with only convictions being recorded in crime statistics the UK still has a higher rate of violent crime per capita than the US.

Uncontrolled mass illegal immigration from Africa and the middle east coupled with severe restrictions on self defense... Gee who woulda thunk that this would happen.

Remember. Hyper diversity only kinda works when done forcefully, in a dystopian police state like the UK.
