So how has this happened? London murder rate overtakes New York's

Telegraph article from 2010 wrote:The data provide a breakdown of the ethnicity of the 18,091 men and boys who police took action against for a range of violent and sexual offences in London in 2009-10.
They show that among those proceeded against for street crimes, 54 per cent were black; for robbery, 59 per cent; and for gun crimes, 67 per cent. Street crimes include muggings, assault with intent to rob and snatching property.
Just over 12 per cent of London’s 7.5 million population is black, including those of mixed black and white parentage, while 69 per cent is white, according to the Office for National Statistics."
Among possible explanations for the recent increase in knife crime is a steep decline in the use by police of stop and search.
The powers enable officers to search people on the street if they have reasonable grounds to suspect they may be carrying weapons, illegal drugs, stolen property or items to be used to commit a crime. People can also be searched without reasonable grounds if a senior officer believes there's a risk of serious violence in a particular area.
From 2009 the number of stops has been falling across England and Wales, especially in London, primarily due to concerns that the measures unfairly targeted young black men, wasted police resources and were ineffective at catching criminals.
Theresa May, as Home Secretary, led efforts to drive down the number of stops, but there's anecdotal evidence from police that young people are now more inclined to carry knives because of growing confidence they won't be stopped.

Godstud wrote:London's murder rate has nothing to do with knives or guns. It's also not completely accurate.
So far in 2018, 46 people have been fatally stabbed, shot or injured in London compared with 50 in the US city.
They have not identified the reason for it, either. A lot of assumptions are being made by the racist asses on this forum(you know who you are), by assuming blacks are doing the murders.
Also, most knifings don't actually result in death. Most shootings, do. Your attempt to make this about gun control is a red herring, and intellectually dishonest. I expect that from you, now, @noir . You want to make everything about race, and lies.
