The UK crime rate in England and Wales grew by 13 percent in just one year, with violent crime up 19 percent, according to a report released last week by the UK Office for National Statistics.

Sexual offenses increased by almost 20 percent on the previous year, with rape cases up by 22 percent. Child rape and rape gangs have also been in the news recently. Knife crime rose by 26 percent and offenses involving firearms were up by 27 percent, in spite of strict gun control laws in the United Kingdom. Nearly half of the increase in knife crime took place in Britain’s multicultural capital of London.

UK Crime Minister Sarah Newton said: “This week we began consulting on tough new laws to crack down on acid attacks and knife offenses. Our Domestic Abuse Bill will help to bring this heinous crime out of the shadows and ensure victims receive both support and justice, as we invest £100m to prevent and confront violence against women and girls.”

The UK taxpayer-funded broadcaster, BBC News, reported that the large rise in the most serious violence was “puzzling the experts”. “No one knows why it’s happening,” according to the BBC, “One thing is certain though. It is putting huge additional demands on the police at a time when they are already very stretched.”

The UK government has made huge reductions to its police force over recent years, with more than 20,000 officers cut since 2010.

In spite of a shortage of funds, police recently faced criticism and ridicule for a series of expensive PR stunts and embarrassing Twitter posts. These included encouraging male officers to paint their nails and go out on patrol, in order to raise awareness of the modern-day slavery that frequently occurs within British nail bars.

According to the Daily Mail, police in Cardiff, Wales paraded around in high-heeled shoes as part of a campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse.

Several county police forces were also criticized for investing taxpayer money in rainbow-colored “Police with Pride” vehicles, and driving them around cities to encourage people to report so-called “hate crimes”.

According to a police spokesperson, the purpose of the vehicles is to “engage with the gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans community to raise awareness of hate crime and domestic abuse and to encourage more people to report incidents”.

Police forces across the country also faced a backlash on social media this month for putting substantial tax-payer resources into setting up “hate crime awareness” vans and tents around the UK. Last week, The Times newspaper published statistics revealing that British police are currently arresting 9 people per day for posting supposedly “offensive messages” on social media.

In August, a UK police “hate crime officerfaced public ridicule after he reported supermarkets for failing to use gender-neutral signs on women’s sanitary products. While doing what some would say is an excellent job of policing social justice issues, policing actual crimes has yielded less than stellar results.

  1. This is the type of policing that the NFL players in the US want….

  2. That’s why we got out of the UK. It will only get worse. I like how they say, they don’t know why its happening. Ha ha ha would you like me to tell you why its happening ? I watched it coming.

  3. In the 950 years since the Battle of Hastings the testosterone has been bred entirely out of the British Ruling Class.

  4. I gotta ask: What “gender-neutral,” presumably human organisms, use “women’s sanitary products?” I grew up thinking “women’s sanitary products” were intended for use by females. Was I incorrectly informed, or has the UK population devolved to a uni-sexual, composite life-form?

  5. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening. The inmates are running the asylum and brains are to be left at the door. You can’t coexist with those determined to destroy you or can you force people to accept delusional self perceptions.The truth is not always,pleasant. Stop being more concerned about feelings and do your job which is to uphold and enforce the law.
