According to a new story in the UK Independent, rape incidents are sharply on the rise in London…and police simply don’t have a clue as to why that might be.
From The Independent:
The number of alleged rapes reported to police in London has risen by almost 20 per cent in a disturbing increase police are struggling to explain.
There were 7,613 reported rapes in the year to January, compared to 6,392 over the previous 12 months, according to figures collated by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).
Sir Craig Mackey, deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said the rise could not be accounted for simply by more victims feeling able to report abuse or better recording practices.
“It is not as simple as saying this is increased confidence,” he told the London Assembly’s police and come committee. “Of course that plays a part, and faith in the process, but there is something going on with sexual offending in London that we don’t fully understand. We see the end of it but we don’t understand the causes.”
Oh, dear sir, you understand the causes quite well.
Whenever a police official or politician is confronted with an uncomfortable rise in crime, they suddenly find it as difficult to explain as a black hole in the center of the galaxy. And there’s only one reason for that: Political correctness. Actually, in this case, it’s worse than plain old political correctness; it’s abject cowardice. In London, we’re seeing the same thing we’ve seen in Switzerland and Germany, which are police and politicians scared to death of blaming Islamic migration for a precipitous rise in crime – particularly sex-related crimes, which have risen dramatically across Europe in the wake of the migrant crisis.
And why wouldn’t they be afraid? Muslims have already demonstrated time and again what they’re capable of when a government official dares to tell the truth about their religion and its prescriptions for violence. Hell, all it took was a cartoon of Mohammad for a bunch of Parisian satirists to meet their demise at the end of a Muslim’s gun. Imagine what they would do if police officers in London said, “Well, you know, these people really don’t belong in Western society…”
Of course, before any jihadists could reign down bloody terror, London’s Muslim mayor would surely have something to say.
Sooner or later, even the dandiest European liberals are going to stand up and demand their free and safe societies back. Let’s just hope they don’t wait until it’s much too late.
