posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.18

A widespread “knife epidemic” continues to sweep across the United Kingdom this week, where a spat of deadly stabbings has brought London’s murder rate soaring over 44% from the same period last year.

According to the Daily Mail, overall knife violence is up across Britain by 22% and a stunning 44% across the UK’s largest metropolis; with more than 150 dead and countless more injured in separate attacks.

“The stats were released amid growing concern at the spiraling number of deadly attacks on the capital’s streets, with more than 60 people killed since the start of 2018,” writes the Mail. “Offenses involving firearms were up, by 11% to 6,604 recorded crimes.”

“These statistics show once again that crime, and violent crime in particular, is rising at an unacceptably high rate across the whole of England and Wales, including London,” said London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Earlier this month, the mayor of the UK’s largest city simply blamed the escalating violence on “budget cuts.”

A man in his mid-twenties was brutally stabbed to death in North London Wednesday night, bringing the British capital’s murder rate to over 50 people since the beginning of 2018 and raising serious security questions throughout the United Kingdom.

According to the Telegraph, the unidentified man was found “fatally wounded” by the Metropolitan Police Department in London’s Hackney neighborhood shortly after 8pm.

“In the same borough just hours earlier a man in his 50s died outside a bookmakers in Upper Clapton Road following a suspected fight,” writes the Telegraph. “The attack has added to the UK’s soaring rate of knife crime, with fatal stabbings in England and Wales at their highest levels since 2010/11.”

The stabbing death comes just days after two teenagers were killed in similar attacks in the country’s largest city.
