Not wildly conclusive figures. The follow up trend will be interesting.

New York has a larger force that costs much more than the Met.

Sad news.

Oh, and about 2000 less police are employed than in 2919.

You can see into the future now?

Nothing to do with an ever increasing number of people from cultures where knife carrying is the norm living in London? Not many of the unfortunate victims were IC1 types with names like Jones or Smith.

Are you advocating more police? Surprising given your regular condemnations of the filth as you refer to them. Presumably you want more police but with no powers?

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

Typical nonsense. Of course the demographics play their part. As to the filth, as long as they do their proper job without bias I have no quarrel with them.

Clear up rates of the police were never very good, but numbers are such that they have publicly stated that they won't even bother to attend some. The Tories obviously have more faith than you that the future will see less crime.

New York always had twice as many police as London with a similar population. We didn't need as many as crime levels, especially murder, were not as high. Things have changed due to the change in London's population due to unfettered immigration and iilegal immigration especially. Stabbings aren't a hideously white phenomenon.
New York started to clean things upwith a zero tolerance to crime. Peopoe stopped committing minor acts as being caught commiting them often led to them being charged with something more serious, carrying drugs or weapons etc... Trouble is lefties would object, same as they do with black peopoe being stop and searched despite most knife crime being committed by blacks despite them being a minority.
Still, murder rates aren't as bad as in Venezuela, the country Jezza said was an example we should aspire to be like.

I lived in New York during this period, it wasn't only the increase in policing that lowered the crime rate. The economic boom and social policies to reduce the crack cocaine epidemic were implemented which offered a better way for those likely to commit crime.

It's a different place now from the mid-1990s, I can only imagine the difference for those who lived there in the 1980s. Certainly lost it's edge and seems whiter in Manhattan than it did back then. Shame in some ways - the small shops, delis and the diners have largely closed down to be replaced by chain stores and the same stuff as London - probably the same as most Western large cities. Parts of Brooklyn were almost a no-go zone for us Euros then, now it's hipster central.

I have very fond memories of that city. Fantastic atmosphere.

What a place NYC must have been in the 70's. Scorsese's Mean Streets. The Chelsea Hotel. CBGB's. Max's Kansas City. Studio 54. Warhol's factory, Mudd Club. Punk, Hip Hop etc.
