London violent crime could take a generation to solve

It could take a generation to solve London's violent crime problem, the city's mayor has warned.

Two teenage boys and two men have been stabbed to death in the city in the last five days, including 15-year-old Jay Hughes.

Mayor Sadiq Khan told the BBC's Today programme to "really make significant progress can take up to 10 years".

Home Office minister Victoria Atkins said combating violence crime "isn't just about police numbers".

More than 110 murder investigations have been launched across the capital this year.

Jay Hughes, 15, was stabbed to death in a premeditated attack at a chicken shop in Bellingham, south-east London, on Thursday.

Another teenager Malcolm Mide-Madariola, 17, was then knifed to death outside Clapham South station on Friday afternoon.

In September, a London Violence Reduction Unit was set up mirroring the approach taken in Glasgow, where violence is treated as a public health issue and "a disease infecting communities".

According to City Hall figures police coverage in London is at its lowest rate in 20 years with 3.3 police officers for every thousand Londoners - the lowest rate since 1998 and 19% below 2010.

Local leaders need to be more successful in lobbying the government for more money for policing, Mr Khan said.

The mayor said children as young as primary school age are now carrying knives and warned it could take "a generation" to solve the problem.

He added: "They saw in Scotland what we're seeing in London which is children in primary school thinking not only is it OK to carry a knife, but it gives them a sense of belonging, joining a criminal gang, it makes them feel safer.

"We have to be tough in relation to enforcement. But we have to give young people constructive things to do, investing in youth centre, youth workers and after school clubs.

"We need to use all resources we at our disposal we can to address this horror."

Mrs Atkins said the Home Office was taking a "wrap around approach" to tackling violent crime.

"Drugs is major player in this rise, we know that serious organised crime is a major factor as well," she added.

"Which is why we are not just focusing on serious violence strategy, but also serious organised crime strategy to hit both ends of the violent crime cycle."

Local authority and health care professionals will have a new legal duty to take action and prevent violent crime, under plans announced by the government in October.

As well as the two teenagers being killed, Rocky Djelal, 38, was stabbed to death in a busy London park beside a playground in Southwark on Wednesday.

Two men have also been arrested over the fatal stabbing of a 22-year-old man in Bromley on Sunday.

This is when the rot started in Croydon

Terry May, aged 19, was slaughtered on 1 June 1981 in Thornton Heath, Croydon, South London

A lad, who had several black friends, was murdered by a mob of about 30 blacks.

They jumped on him and his friend when they slowed down at a crossroads on their motorbike.

His friend managed to run and escape onto a bus but Terry was disabled and didn't make it.

He was stabbed and hacked with knives and axes. He cried for help but no-one came.

Their frenzy was such that they were not content just to chop and slash his body: once he had fallen they mutilated his face.

Terry's father, after identifying his son's body said: "When I saw my boy, his teeth were all smashed and his face was in a terrible state. I don't think animals should be treated like that, let alone a human being."

A black called Ronald Pilgrim was convicted of manslaughter for the killing, he had been charged with murder.

Other gang members were acquitted of murder and received sentences of Borstal or a few months' jail.

One, Gary Huggins, said to be leader of the gang, was given 5 years for riot and affray.


This was by far the worst of a series of attacks on white youths by black mobs

A series of meetings took place among so-called community leaders, many of whom had never even spoken to a black youth

Members of the black community, including well known owners of black sound systems who played at all the local black venues, were NOT allowed to take part in any of the meetings 8-}

The slaughter of PC Blakelock

Keith Henry Blakelock was a London Metropolitan Police constable who was murdered on 6 October 1985 during rioting at the Broadwater Farm housing estate in Tottenham, north London.

PC Blakelock had been assigned on the night of his death to a unit of 11 constables and one sergeant dispatched to protect firefighters.

Even today police have to accompany emergency services visiting housing estates

When the rioters forced the officers back, Blakelock stumbled and fell.

Surrounded by a mob of around 50 black people, he received over 40 injuries inflicted by machetes or similar, and was found with a six-inch-long knife in his neck, buried up to the hilt.

What is reported is only the tip of the iceberg

Black youths do not report attacks unless they are seriously injured

As you may have seen from an earlier report by a doctor at Croydon hospital, youths often go into the hospital covered in blood

Hospitals report knife and gun injuries, so if the wounded person is not too seriously injured they prefer to let it heal on it's own

Black youths feel like big men and are proud of their wounds

Boy, 16, 'stabbed to death' in south London

A 16-year-old boy has died in a suspected stabbing in south London.

The Metropolitan Police said initial inquiries suggested the teenager died of stab wounds in Tulse Hill on Monday.

Officers were first called to reports of a shooting in Greenleaf Close at 22:53 GMT where the boy was found unconscious. He died at 23:41.

The Met has deployed hundreds of extra officers on the streets of the capital in the wake of recent deaths.

The victim's parents saw their son dying as they waited up to 15 minutes for emergency crews to arrive, an eyewitness said.

The teenager, who did not live on the estate according to eyewitnesses, was being collected by his parents to take him home when "an attack" took place.

Paulina Wedderburn, who lived in the area, said she thought she heard a gunshot and a "big black Audi" driving away before finding the teenager in a driveway, looking like an "angel".

She said: "I just feel sorry for the mum. The mum's screams I can't get out of my head.

"What's going on? What is it? Why do they have to be killing each other?"

No arrests have been made over Monday's killing and the boy's next of kin have been informed.

This latest death comes after four people - two teenagers and two men - died in knife attacks in London in five days.

London violence 'to take 10 years to solve'

The suspected murder means the number of homicides in the capital during 2018 has now reached 119 - three more than in 2017.

Why won’t they lock up Britain's knife thugs?

Four in ten criminals caught repeatedly with knives avoid jail - as swathe of fatal stabbings hit London

    A mother found her 16-year-old son stabbed to death in Tulse Hill, south London

    It was the capital’s fifth knife death in six days and 119th killing this year

    Police forces logged record 41,884 knife offences nationwide in the year to June

    Doctors warned of a ‘significant peak’ in knife attacks after school

    MPs said only one in four urgent police call-outs was related to crime
Four in ten criminals caught more than once with a knife are spared prison.

Nearly 5,000 repeat offenders avoided jail despite a ‘two strikes and you’re out’ rule. The shocking figures were revealed following the third fatal stabbing of a London teenager inside a week.

Adults caught with a knife for the second time should be locked up for at least six months under laws rolled out by the Tories in 2015.

But, of the 13,056 people convicted of a further knife offence over the past three years, 4,908 were given suspended sentences, community punishments, fines or cautions.

‘These figures give the lie to the Government’s tough talk on knife crime,’ said John Woodcock, an independent MP who sits on the Commons home affairs committee. ‘It seems that “two strikes and you’re out” is anything but.

‘Communities being blighted by the huge rise in stabbings are in desperate need of fresh thinking and more police resources to end this nightmare. This presents a bad image for Britain. It risks damaging our reputation.’

Police chiefs warned of a knife crime epidemic in major cities:

The Ministry of Justice figures will fuel fears that police are losing control of the streets amid a surge in crime, the rise of ‘county lines’ drugs gangs and widespread concern over ‘Wild West Britain’.

Under the ‘two strikes’ system, minimum sentences were introduced for those aged 16 and over who are convicted of a second or subsequent offence of possession of a knife or offensive weapon.

The punishments are at least six months imprisonment for adults, while young offenders face a minimum four-month detention and training order.

Judges must impose the minimum sentence unless there are particular circumstances relating to the latest offence which would ‘make it unjust to do so in all the circumstances’.

Official MoJ figures analysed by the Daily Mail show that between 2016 – the first full year of the ‘two strikes’ regime – and June this year, just under 40 per cent of repeat knife offenders were spared jail. This will provide fresh ammunition for claims that courts are going soft to save money and reduce overcrowding in jails.

David Green, of the think-tank Civitas, said: ‘If parents are to have a chance of discouraging their children from joining gangs, the best argument they could have is that gang leaders soon end up serving many long years in jail.

‘Tragically, as the Daily Mail’s analysis shows, the system is failing law-abiding parents. Even when caught carrying weapons the majority of criminals are given feeble sentences that neither punish nor deter.’

Ann Oakes-Odger, who founded KnifeCrimes.Org after her son Westley was stabbed to death, said: ‘We are far too lenient on people caught carrying knives.

‘We really need for offenders to see that sentencing is not only robust but sends a strong message to deter them.’

Figures from the MoJ show knife crime has surged to a seven-year high. Courts dealt with more than 21,101 knife cases last year – the highest number since 2010. Experts have pointed to a link between the surge in knife violence and a huge reduction in the number of stop and searches carried out by the police.

The checks have fallen dramatically since then-home secretary Theresa May introduced reforms to reduce the ‘excessive and inappropriate’ use of the tactic.

Overall crime reported to police soared to a 13-year high of 5.6million in the year to June – an average of one alleged offence every six seconds.

A Government spokesman said: ‘Knife crime has tragic consequences which devastate families and shatter communities.

‘Under this Government, those convicted of carrying a knife are more likely to go to prison than ever before and for longer, but sentencing is rightly a matter for the independent courts.’

The spokesman said the average custodial sentence length for knife possession had increased by eight months.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid, who unveiled a Serious Violence Strategy this year, tweeted yesterday: ‘I am absolutely determined to tackle knife crime and will work with anyone to stop this senseless violence. This is an issue we are confronting head-on. I will not write off a generation of young people.’

The return of stop and search?

A series of stabbings on the streets of London has led to a renewed focus on knife crime and how to reduce it

One power available to the police is stop and search, and Home Secretary Sajid Javid has recently emphasised its importance in tackling violence:

"If stop and search means that lives can be saved from the communities most affected, then of course it's a very good thing," he told the annual Police Superintendents' Conference in September.

But what powers are available to the police and what is the evidence they reduce crime?
The powers

There are three main acts that allow police forces in England and Wales to carry out stop and searches:

    Section One of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984

    Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994

    Sections 44/47A of the Terrorism Act 2000
Last year, 99.1% of all searches were carried out under Section One and what the Home Office calls "associated legislation", including the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. These powers allow the police to conduct a search if they have "'reasonable grounds" to suspect someone of carrying illegal drugs, a weapon, stolen property or something which could be used to commit a crime, such as a crowbar.

Section 60, on the other hand, allows officers to search anyone in a designated area without "reasonable grounds". It applies when the police have intelligence that serious violence has taken place or may take place.

Section 44/47A allows the police to conduct searches when there is "reasonable suspicion" an act of terrorism will happen. Before last year it had not been used since 2011, but 149 searches were carried out using the power following the Parsons Green bombing in September 2017.

Unfair targeting

The police used a combination of all these powers to search 282,000 people across England and Wales last year.

That represents an 80% drop from the 1.4m searches in the year ending March 2010.
Line chart showing falling stop and searches since 2009

Stop and search occurrences began falling in 2009, following fears that it was being used too widely and was unfairly targeting ethnic minorities, especially young black men.

The government brought in measures to limit its use in 2014 and this led to the creation of a revised code around its use.
Section 60 searches quadruple

While stop and search has fallen overall, the Home Office's data reveals that searches carried out under Section 60 rose last year.

In the year ending March 2018, they quadrupled compared with the previous year - 2,501 were carried out in 2017/18 compared to 631 in 2016/17.

This was the first rise in Section 60 searches for nine years

When used, a Section 60 order lasts for a maximum of 15 hours - but it can be extended to 24.

The police should publicise - usually through social media - where and for how long a Section 60 order is in place.

For example, the Metropolitan Police imposed a 15-hour Section 60 order across the whole of this year's Notting Hill Carnival in August. It said the decision was based on "detailed analysis of intelligence".

Image caption Police forces will often use social media to alert the public when a section 60 order is in place

Why has Section 60 use increased?

Most of the increase in Section 60 stop and and search incidents has been driven by the Metropolitan Police, which carried out 73% of all Section 60 searches last year.

In an interview with the Evening Standard in April, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said she would give the go-ahead for her officers to use the Section 60 power to crack down on gang violence.

The Met's Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt says the use of Section 60 is an important way of preventing violence.

"It's a legitimate and powerful tool," he told BBC Reality Check.

"Disputes between young people can quickly turn into violence and Section 60 is a preventative measure based on police intelligence," he argues.

Does stop and search work?

The government's Serious Violence Strategy, published in April, acknowledges that knife crime, gun crime and homicide have all risen as stop and search has fallen. But it dismisses any link, pointing out that knife crime fell between 2010-11 and 2013-14 - a period that also coincided with a fall in stop and search.

Last year the College of Policing published a study examining Metropolitan Police stop and search data. It found that higher rates of stop and search, under any power, only led to "very slightly lower than expected rates of crime in the following week or month".

Another way of trying to assess the effectiveness of stop and search is to look at arrest rates.

And on that measure, the data shows that as fewer people are searched, the more likely those people are to be subsequently arrested.

Last year nearly one in five of the 282,000 people searched under Section One were taken into custody - that compares with almost one in 10 in 2009-10.

Advocates of stop and search say it needs to increase to act as a deterrent. A report published by the Centre for Social Justice - a think tank founded by the former Conservative leader Iain Duncan-Smith - said that some young people were no longer scared of the police, because they believed the risk of being searched was now very low.

On the other hand, if stop and search is used too widely, it can create resentment between the public and the police, argues Leroy Logan, a BLACK former Metropolitan Police superintendent.

He says this can worsen community intelligence and that the answer to rising knife crime lies in better engagement with young people. WRONG

KNIFE HORROR London stabbing – man in 30s rushed to hospital
after ANOTHER stabbing attack as knife crime wave continues


ANOTHER stabbing has hit London, with the latest victim described as a man in his 30s.

Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 6.50pm today to reports of a man found with stab wounds in Crouch Hill.

The man was rushed to hospital for treatment, but police said his injuries were not life threatening.

The Met police said in a release: "Work continues to establish the location for where the man came to sustain his injuries."

"No arrests; enquiries continue."

Yesterday The Sun reported stabbings across the capital have risen 16 per cent as a surge in knife crime rocks the UK.

The total number of offences involving a knife or bladed instrument that have been recorded by cops in the year to March 2018 rose to 40,147, a seven-year-high.

There were 1,299 stabbings in London up to the end of April, according to official statistics from the Met Police.
