6 per cent reported rise.

probably a lower rate overall than most countries.

i'd rather give my wallet to a person with a knife, than a person with a gun.

In the UK, disproportionately Afro-Caribbean youths are both prepretators and victims of these crimes, but you won't find that information in the mainstream media, with the possible exception of the Daily Mail.

if you think about it

a person robs you

not a race.


The person could have been a vegan or a Libra, too.

You could tell if it was a vegan by his use of a potato knive.

Relevant how?

Are most male?

Are most poor?

Are most between a certain age?

You often fixate on race.

just proves my point that you cant stop crime by banning things. they ban knives then baseball bat crime will be up.

you got to go after what causes crime.

if "qualified" people, and you know what i mean by this, were permitted to carry firearms for self defense, these knife crimes wouldnt be going through the roof

and id rather not give my wallet to anyone

You can't stop crime, but you can lower the deadliness of it.

Certainly the priority should be going after what causes crime, but until you do that it's better to attack things that are the most violent (like guns). Guns have no place in the hands of normal citizens.
