Zero Tolerance For Knife Crime!
Knife crime continues to increase and young people are losing their lives as it spirals out of control. The law needs to be changed with Zero Tolerance for knife crime. The best prevention is tougher sentencing and it's time the Government changed the law before more young lives are lost.
At least 35 people have been fatally stabbed in London since the beginning of the year.
Met Police records show 37,443 recorded knife offences and 6,694 recorded gun offences across the UK in the year up to September 2017.
In London there were 12,980 knife crimes – 2,452 more than the equivalent year.
Four teenagers were stabbed to death in London on New Year’s Eve alone, and 22 were killed in March – meaning the capital now has a higher murder rate than New York.
