Another Violent Burglary in London

I am always astounded by the number of violent crimes which take place in Britain and simply do not make the papers or the TV news.

Here is yet a third case of an incredibly violent burglary carried out in London, in which the occupants were held hostage whilst the thugs ransacked their home:

BROWN: TEEN HOODIES GUILTY OF RANSACKING COUPLE'S HOME

HACKNEY, E LONDON. Two teenage hoodies who kicked down a couple's front door and ransacked their home at Christmas are facing jail today (fri). Lemar Brown, 18, and Jamal Gordon, 17, threatened Thomas Mayers and girlfriend Charley Munro with a baseball bat and a crow bar during the terrifying raid.

VFR reports an article in the Daily Mail that Britin is the most violent country in Europe.

The comments in the above link are worth reading. I do not believe that Austria is more violent then South Africa. Something is wrong here. Can it be wrong in the case of England as well?

However, there is no doubt that England is a far more violent place then it used to be some 30 years ago.

My own view is that the crime rate overall is very much affected by the major cities of London, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds/Bradford. These cities have lost all sense of belonging to the national culture in which they are. Consequently, people in these cities have no sense of common ownership and belonging to the city and the nation. Crime then flourishes.

More enrichment from diversity.

...Britain's "cultural enrichers" (the Jamaicans, Nigerians, etc.) will never assimilate into British society. One need only look at America's black population which has been with them practically from the beginning; they remain separate and apart from the mainstream, forming a huge underclass responsible for the majority of that country's crime.
