The people of The UK are beyond help and hope. They’ve handed their streets over to robbers, rapists, killers and even terrorists.
With traditional snobbery the Brits have rejected use of force to avoid violent crime. People who dare hurt a criminal in the course of a deadly crime face years in prison as well as civil actions by the predators.
I guess the pacifists rule the UK with an insane idea that laying down playing dead and total cooperation with criminals is somehow good public policy. I’m sure the UK’s most hardened criminals love Merry Old England for its kind of misplaced benevolence.
I remember the case of an American woman who used a Swiss Army knife many years ago to fend off an attacker in the Tube. The woman’s attacker was not injured and the woman faced serious time in prison. That incident took the UK off of my tourism list but for an occasional stopover at Heathrow Airport.
Actor Rob Knox, 18 who will be seen in the November opening of the latest film in the Harry Potter franchise was stabbed to death protecting his brother from a knife attack. Others were hurt during this incident.
For those who don’t know or were influenced by too many Hollywood film productions, knives are far deadlier than guns at close range. Bullet wounds seal themselves because human tissue is elastic. Knife wounds leave blood vessels wide open and our bodies can bleed out in seconds even if vital organs are uninjured.
Now the UK is trying to bring an end to knives through more laws that criminals don’t care about. They have a big KNIFE AMNESTY program underway. The great chefs of the UK may just become the latest refugees seeking asylum in nearby countries that still value freedom.
To aid the Amnesty program police have set up airport style checkpoints to frisk citizens suspected of nothing. I ask, what are UK’s politicians smoking these days?
This is all as backwards as can be and here is a simple cure.
1. Legalize reasonable force including deadly force in self-defense and defense of others.
2. Legalize the carrying of weapons including handguns by any sane and law abiding citizen.
3. Protect crime victims from civil liability from the thugs.
4. Arm all cops 24/7
5. Allow for armed private detectives and security patrolmen.
By making these changes and putting the thugs on notice will greatly slow down this violent crime rate that has been directly tied to new laws and enforcement against self-defense.
Are the Brits so dumb they can’t figure out that Charles Darwin, not the government is policing their streets?
