Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said websites and mobile phone applications such as YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram were partially to blame for the bloodshed.

Wow, 44 murders in London since Jan 1. 55 in NYC.

Baltimorgue is tied with NYC at 55; to view it in proportion to population, NYC would have to come up with an additional 660 by last night.

Losers.

The British people have the solution - vote the bums out and vote in politicians who will allow the subjects to exercise self-defense.

Yes , for years now the UK has had Violent Crime Rates matching or exceeding the USA's . ( usually fewer murders , but metric crap ton of rape , robbery and Agrivated Assault .)

But 290 homicide/ yr for NYC ? Just doesn't seem creditable. Is that legit , or are they cooking the books?

Found a NYT article with consistent numbers for 2017. Also found a video on ABC with statements from Mayor De Blasio and NYPD Commissioner O'Niell saying same.

Interestingly, in the latter link, the NYPD Commissioner makes a statement that "New Yorkers are now understanding that public safety is truly a shared responsibility." (starts at about the 0:40 mark.) Hmmm ... interesting concept.

I don't believe this story - Fake News. We've been told by everyone that murders would stop with the banning of guns, so......

Shootings, at least one dead, more crime.

Shootings are obviously impossible, London is a gun free zone, right?
