And another one.

This time the victim is a police officer who should not be a helpless victim!

From the perspective of citing current events to make a point, it just doesn't get any better than this.

This is insightful but will be condemned as inciteful.

Yes, noticeably the Murder Rate is down on previous years.

As usual, you ignore the salient fact.

CONVICTION RATES ARE DOWN! The experience of the US during the 1960s reveal that lower arrest and conviction rates are a precursor to increased violent crime. Interjurisdictional comparisons both nationally within the US as well as internationally confirm that ARREST RATES, not gun ownership rates, are the single most significant factor in homicide rates.

Until recent years, the police in Great Britin shamed their American collegues by solving well over 90% of homicides and arresting the perpetrator. This is no longer true.

Homicide rates are not constant. There are statistically insignificant variations. The British will experience a few years of respite in which homicide rates seem to be stable or decreasing. However; once the reduced arrests rate become an accepted norm, your murder rates will soar. Knife control will not save you.

Here is one from America.

It is a "Mass Stabbing" attack.

And the knifings continue.

I will grant you that this level of carnage would be an unremarkable day in Chicago. However; it is alarming for London because it is a dramatic increase. Has there been a sudden increase in knife sales? Are knives getting longer or sharper?
May be it is a symptom of a change in society?

That article is a wee bit outdated now...

Paris police attacker a radicalised Islamist, says French prosecutor
Witnesses have told police the attacker showed signs of radicalisation, notably expressing support for Islamist actions, his reluctance to have contact with women, justification of the 2015 attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and changing his dress several months ago from “western clothing to that suitable for the mosque”.
