Mothers send sons to Somalia to avoid knife crime

Mothers send sons to Somalia to avoid knife crime

Postby Dinkydoobie » Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:50 pm

"British teenagers are being sent by their parents to Somalia, itself recovering from a series of terror attacks, because of concern that the police cannot protect them from knife crime.

Representatives from north London’s Somali community say hundreds of children have been flown to Somalia, Somaliland and Kenya because of rising concerns over drug gangs and county lines, the criminal networks that use children to transport drugs from cities to the provinces.

In a series of interviews, Somali mothers who arrived in London after fleeing their country during its 1990s civil war told the Observer that many of their sons had asked to leave the UK because of drug gangs and the threat of violence."

Makes a nice change to sending their daughters to Somalia to have their genitals sliced apart with a rusty razor blade, then sewn up, with no anesthetic...

Other than being the capital i'm not sure why people obsess over London as the total knife crime figures outside London is much higher than in. Londons figure is high purely for no other reason that millions of folk live there! The media doesn't help much continually pumping this image of "knife crime London" as though it doesn't happen elsewhere.

With help from organised crime gangs branching out instead of competing in the city.

It's also not true that knife crime is higher outside of london. homicides with a knife as the weapon are higher per 100,000 in other areas but knife crime is 3 times higher in London than anywhere else.

Ban knives, It's only uneducated British scumbags who carry them.
Ban them and it will instantly stop Knife crime. Look at Australia hardly any Knife crime there.

Does that correlate to Mrs May telling the police they were getting numbers cut and also the stopping of stop and search because people like Diane Abbot complained that far too many black people were getting stopped unfairly?
Just asking.

Far too many lovely kitchen knives around for that to have any effect but why on earth do they allow people to buy zombie knives etc in cities?

Knife crime is rising in wales in part because of organised crime. you've got gangs coming in from from liverpool, manchester, and london. Same with the home counties - knife crime is rising there because of gangs spreading out from london.

And here's a snippet from your bbc link

"For every 100,000 people in the capital, there were 168 knife offences in 2017-18...

Next highest was the West Midlands, with 72 knife offences per 100,000 population, and Yorkshire and the Humber, 79."

Drugs, gangs and knives seem to be correlated. I do wish the Police would cease bullying the motorist and tackle this epidemic head on.
