    Just another day in the capital.There were two more acid attacks in London yesterday (Walthamstow and Tottenham).

    Many conceited Londoners will happily gloss over the uptick in criminality and continue to maintain that London's vibrant diversity is a wonderful thing. As far as they are concerned, they live in the "greatest city on earth".

    Doubtless it'll get worse.

    Most knife attacks in London are gang related. It's sad people get themselves caught up in this stuff.

    Stuff like police cuts and not being able to deal with certain crimes in fear of backlash certainly doesn't help either. Like with moped crimes, met officers aren't allowed to pursue them just in case they get knocked off. Criminals know this and exploit the red tape.

    This is terrible.

    I think the stress of living in London,
    with massive rent,
    having no future except paying off debt,
    seeing mass immigration and the problems it causes,
    simply causes people to give up on life and join a gang.

    There always unfortunately been violent gangs in London in 1950's they had the teddy boys nasty little thugs who had knife fights in the streets. There always been teenage knife crime and murder in London the only different is now it reported in the local and national media.

    It terrible when a young person or child is murder by a knife but it still very unusual in London and the rest of Britain.

    Yes, I know that. There are cultural values among some groups geared toward these violent outcomes. The usual middle-class lefty commentators can't bring themselves to admit this and will continue to blame poverty, racism, slavery, lack of youth centres, etc - anything that allows them to avoid focussing on a particular group's culture. To do that would undermine the glorious multicultural vision.

    The scum bringing their brand of violence and criminality to streets of London are laughing. They operate largely undisturbed by the law and in full knowledge that lefties will continue to provide handy excuses to explain their penchant for knives, acid, and guns.

    I am not surprised. A lot of young people in London are growing up in environments where morals and boundaries simply do not exist. As a result, they have become utterly desensitised to sex and violence.

    It doesn't bode well for the future.

    There is absolutely no comparison to the 1950s.

    How do you know people almost always look back at the past and think it was better. The fact is that some teenagers have always be involved in violent crime including knife crime. There are more people living in London now than sixty years ago so there more violent crime.

    Violent crime might be lower than it was sixty years ago per person

    Cornwall is mainly rural and has a much lower population than London also it has a lot of retired people. In the towns which only have at most 20000 people there is a lot of violent crime including knife crime and anti-social behavior.

    Glosgow has one of the highest knife crime and murder rates in Europe. Glosgow has a higher murder rate than London for all ago groups.
