Car Theft is Effectively ‘Decriminalized’ in London

But plenty of resources to punish people for ‘offensive’ speech.

Car theft has effectively been decriminalized in London after it was revealed that less than one per cent of vehicle thefts in the capital lead to criminal charges.

“Out of the nearly 55,000 thefts from vehicles in London last year, Scotland Yard only solved 271, representing just an 0.5 per cent success rate, according to an analysis of Home Office data conducted by The Telegraph,” reports Breitbart.

“According to the broadsheet, only two major police forces faired worse than London in successfully charging car thieves, with the West Midlands and Surrey police forces only maintaining a 0.4 per cent charging rate.”

Responding to the figures, the head of the Police Foundation think tank Rick Muir said car thefts had been “effectively decriminalized” and that this had emboldened criminals to commit more of the same crimes, knowing they are unlikely to be apprehended.

“There are certain things the public expect of police, one of which is that they will at least investigate these bread and butter crimes,” said Muir.

“Policing is going to have to look at these levels and decide if it has got it right. Where the charge rates are at that level, there is no deterrence to commit these kinds of offences and it might encourage people to commit them in future,” he added.

As we have exhaustively highlighted, while real crimes go unpunished, authorities in the UK have plenty of resources and enforcement power when it comes to punishing people for ‘offensive’ speech.

Last month, a man was jailed for 20 weeks for the ‘crime’ of posting offensive George Floyd memes in private WhatsApp and Facebook group chats.

Last year, a 50-year-old mother in Scotland was charged with a ‘transphobic hate crime’ after she retweeted an image of a suffragette ribbon.

After contacting his employers, Humberside Police interrogated a man and told him to “check his thinking” after he posted a limerick that offended a transgender person.

Harry Miller told police he did not write the limerick and merely retweeted it, but was told by an officer, “Ah. But you liked it and promoted it. It’s not a crime, but it will be recorded as a hate incident.”

In 2017, it was reported that British police had arrested 3,395 people for ‘offensive online comments’ in the space of a year.

People in the UK are routinely investigated and sometimes charged by police for “hate crimes” that have become so broad, anyone form a minority group who claims they were offended is enough for authorities to treat and record it as a “hate incident.”

Back in 2015, the head of the National Police Chiefs’ Council said that due to a lack of resources, officers would be unable to attend some burglaries. In 2018, it was revealed that two thirds of burglaries are not even investigated.

As we highlighted last year, Merseyside Police were forced to respond after officers took part in an electronic ad campaign outside a supermarket which claimed “being offensive is an offence,” with authorities later clarifying that it is in fact not an offense.

Video: New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul Really Did Say It’s A “Conspiracy” That Violent Crime Is Rising

She doesn’t understand why Americans care about it

Any inconvenient fact for Democrats is now dismissed as a “conspiracy”. This was once again in evidence last week as New York Governor Kathy Hochul used the pejorative against people pointing out that there has been a rise in violent crime.

Calling Republicans ‘election deniers and data deniers,’ Hochul claimed that shootings and murders are “down fifteen percent in our state in New York City.”

Hochul charged that Republicans are “master manipulators” attempting to convince the nation that they are less safe in Democratic controlled States.

As The New York Post highlights, while murders are down by 14% in New York City over the summer compared with last year, all other major crimes surged — including a 33% rise in robberies, police statistics show.

In an earlier debate with her Republican opponent Lee Zeldin, Hochul stated that she doesn’t understand why being touch on crime is important to him, even though Americans list it as a priority:

Even MSNBC anchors are not buying it from Hochul:

Nationwide, murder rates are up, according to both FBI and CDC data.

Lets ignore that though:

    These Are America’s Violent Crime Hotspots

    The District of Columbia had the highest rates of violent crime in the United States in 2020, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s data.

    “Residents are scared,” said Michael D. Shankle, chair of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission in the Chinatown area, after three people were shot one night last month, one fatally, in two separate incidents. 

    He added, “They are angry. … We feel like we don’t have enough support.”

    Nearly 1,000 cases of violent crime per 100,000 people were recorded in the state.

    Alaska also has a high rate of violent crime, at 838 cases per 100,000 population.

    As Statista’s Anna Fleck shows in the map below, the south-eastern states of New Mexico, Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana also show higher figures than much of the rest of the country.

    At the other end of the spectrum placed Maine (109 per 100,000), New Hampshire (146), and Vermont (173).

    Finally, we note that even with some of the country’s toughest gun laws, the District is awash in firearms.

    Police so far this year have seized 2,249 guns, 815 more than this time last year…

    …they seem to be fighting a losing battle as the bad guys just won’t follow their rules!
