England is the Most Violent Country in Europe

And it surpasses the United States, long harangued for how violent and barbaric we are by the toothless finger waggers of Britain, in cases of assaults, rapes and muggings. Of course the Brits are trying to explain away the Clockwork Orange like spike in violence caused by a combination of civilian disarmament, hug -a-thug policing and the soul rotting moral decay of any massive welfare state but those explanations don’t pay the hospital bills:

Britain’s violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa – widely considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries.

The figures comes on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour.

The Tories said Labour had presided over a decade of spiralling violence.

In the decade following the party’s election in 1997, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77 per cent to 1.158million – or more than two every minute.

The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:

* The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
* It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including  France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
* The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
* It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of          offences than recorded in Germany and France.

But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.

In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.

America has a violent crime rate of around 466 per 100,000. Canada is around 935 shockingly enough. Both numbers are dwarfed by jolly old England’s jaw dropping 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 citizens. Worse is that because England is significantly smaller than the United States what this stat really means is that more people in England are touched by violence than here in America even as they claim we’re so much more dangerous.

Like I said there are a lot of factors at play here, but if I were to nutshell it I’d just say that criminals in England know they can do what they want without serious consequences. Here in my new home state of South Carolina if someone tried to hit my house with a home invasion they’d get shot, and I’d be well within my rights. Thus, here in SC there are less home invasions than in blue states where they take a more English view of self-defense, because the would -be home invader never knows what’s waiting for them behind the target’s door. In England even defending yourself from a violent attack is forbidden, but the attackers can also be assured of light sentences and perhaps no jail time at all if police do in fact even catch them.

Any rapist/mugger with a brain will be heading to England right now, where they basically allow you to break their laws and provide you with a populace of sheep unable to defend themselves. And any English person with half a brain would run to the nearest U.S. Embassy and apply for asylum.
