What kind of kool-aid has he been drinking? London's history of immigration goes back hundreds of years. I'm sure it was a relatively peaceful town until the Romans showed up.


Maybe multi-ethnic is a more accurate term? London was 80% white as recently as 1991. Now more like 45%. You guys are attempting some serious mental gymnastics to avoid admitting that the increase in murders is directly linked to certain immigrant groups

It's 45% white of British origin, and 60% "other" white as of 2011. The homicide rate is lower than it was in 1990, with a recent spike in 2003 and significant dip in 2012.

Knife crime across London rose by 24% in 2016-17, according to the latest figures published by the Met Police in April.

The rise in knife crime was also mirrored by a rise in gun crime, up 41% on the year previous.

Cops see biggest surge in crime for 15 years — fuelled by rapes and shootings as wave of stabbings sweeps Britain

Police recorded almost 7,000 more incidents involving knifes in the past 12 months - and 38 per cent of the rise was in London alone.

Four dead, 11 injured in a mass shooting in/near a Strasbourg, France Christmas market. Strasbourg is one of two European parliamentary cities.

Associated Press says a terror-related investigation has been launched. The story goes a man under surveillance was tipped off that police were moving in to arrest him and he managed to get out ahead of them and carey through with an attack.

The shooter remains at large.

 

The same Christmas Market was the target of a Al Qaeda bomb plot in 2000

Anyone else watch the live stream video of the attack? I watched a bit. Never seen anything like it. Pretty messed up and makes me feel like we are in dystopian end times

CBC News is carefully considering the use of images and video from this attack, and is only using this material sparingly in the interest of helping our readers understand what happened and why.

the photo of the accused entering the courtroom has his face blurred too.

I saw a bit by accident on Twitter. I saw that something was going on in Christchurch, searched the hashtag and the video popped up and started autoplaying. I did not realize what was going on for a few seconds.

Very, very disturbing.

Not only do these mass shootings continue to be a thing, but now the bastards are going to be live streaming them. SMH.

i’m not so sure live streaming will cause any uptick though. and the video will increase the likekyhood of faster convictions with less forensic investigation required.

by no uptick I mean are there people out there saying “you know 10 years ago I considered doing a mass shooting but the technology to stream it was just not there. now that it is i’m ready to go to it”.

I dunno. Livestreaming takes a horrible thing and makes it even worse, somehow.

thinking it through i’m not really sure it does. the vast majority of these killers end up dead themselves so even they only get brief satisfaction.

UTRECHT, Netherlands — A gunman killed three people and wounded nine others on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht, sparking a manhunt that saw heavily armed officers with sniffer dogs zero in on an apartment building close to the shooting.

 

Authorities immediately raised the terror alert for the area to the maximum level, and the city’s mayor said a “terror motive” was the most likely theory. Dutch military police went on extra alert at Dutch airports and at key buildings in the country as the Utrecht manhunt took place.

 

A few hours after the shooting, Utrecht police released a photo of a 37-year-old man born in Turkey who they said was “associated with the incident.” The photo showed a bearded man on board a tram, dressed in a dark blue hooded top. - https://nationalpost...hooting-on-tram
