Breitbart Europe: After one 14-year-old was “butchered” in a suspected gang-related murder this week and another victim of the same age suffered life-changing injuries when she was slashed in the face by teenage girls, Labour politicians have again blamed “police cuts” for rising violent crime in London.
Young people have been caught “in the grip of” a “disease” of violence, Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy claimed, insisting that the death toll in London is rising as a result of the Conservative Government’s failure to plough sufficient funding into social work and local “youth services”.
She made the emotional claims in a BBC Radio 4 interview on Thursday, a couple of weeks after London’s Labour mayor Sadiq Khan demanded an overhaul of the Metropolitan Police’s gangs matrix, stating that the overrepresentation of black men recorded on the “useful” violence-preventing database was a “cause for concern”.
The murder of Jayden Moodie this week, which took place in Creasy’s constituency, was described by Scotland Yard detectives as “truly heartbreaking”.
A black Mercedes knocked the 14-year-old off of his moped in Waltham Forest, northeast London, on Tuesday, before three men emerged from the vehicle and knifed the teenager in the back seven times as he lay unconscious in the road. more here
