7 Dead, 31 stabbings in ONE Week
When will our politicians finally deal with the rampant criminality that is blighting our streets? Ours is a nation in rapid decline and an increasingly violent one at that!
There was more than one killing per day across Britain last week, while at least 31 other people were injured in stabbings, shootings or violent attacks as the UK's bloody crime-wave continues to spiral out of control.
The Sunday Express has tracked violent crime up and down the country over the past seven days, as 11 people were killed.
Twelve of the victims and suspects involved were teenagers. A week that saw £35million awarded to police to tackle violence saw its first stabbing after just over an hour.
Below are just some of the victims of knife crime in just one week of horror:
On Tuesday, a 15-year-old boy was left fighting for his life after being stabbed 20 times in Luton.
- A boy, 14, was knifed in broad daylight after school in Lewisham, south London on Wednesday.
- A 14-year-old boy suffered serious injuries after being stabbed in Chester on Thursday . A 15-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder.
On Friday, a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in Islington, north London.
When the sons of our political, journalistic and financial elite are the victims of knife crime, only then will we see a crackdown on the thugs terrorising our local communities. As long as it is the sons of ordinary Englishmen and women, the orgy of violence will continue.
