See the man stabbed at Beckenham junction on april 2 died last night Badger, its on your manor now so vote wisely-the other guy stabbed was taken to hospital but survived- Beckenham used to be such a lovely area, still is actually, I had a stroll in Bpp a while back, never felt threatened, but the station id obviously a bit dodge!

As I posted before there is a hot spot around the junction narrow pavements and lots of late night bars and clubs. I don't know the details of this stabbing but this is the 3/4 death in the last twenty years not counting the numerous other attacks. Beckenham is only dodgy in that small area on a Friday Saturday Night.

I blame the police because the locals have complained for years about too many friction points and the police have not supported closing down some of the trouble spots.

Yes, absolutely this plus no understanding or empathy with the difference between right and wrong, it’s more like a “don’t care attitude”. I don’t believe communities can police communities, harsher penalties are what is required and giving the police the ability to do what they are supposed to ie protect the public.

And the government will take you up on that offer with relish. The police will be fully armed with semi automatic weapons in no time.

Problem (criminal breakdown of society due to government policy)
Reaction (outrage at violent crime)
Solution (more power for the government)

Except it does not appear to be working like that. The more violent crime, in inner-city areas and primarily caused by/victims of ethnic minorities, the less power Police are then given to deal with it.

I get your analysis and thought similar for years but this is now a far more complex and nuanced position than before. To be fair to the Met, the amount of gun-related crime is down and several big operations appear to have succeeded in getting weapons off the street, or at least hindered the ability for criminals to get their hands on them, but there is something far more sinister going on from what I can see.

 


In 1967, when Polish mercenary Rafal Ganowicz was asked what it felt like to take human life, replied: "I wouldn't know, I've only ever killed communists."
