The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S.
[link to deadlinelive.info]

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. (Yes Piers…. There are more people in the USA thus more violence!)

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

British householders should certainly be allowed to keep shotguns, rifls and pistols for defence of their family and property.

Anyone breaking into an occupied house should be "fair game". The armed householder should be able to use his/her weapons to kill the crim, no questions asked.

Castle Doctrine.

Well, at least our crime rate is lower than Britain's.


I don't think the average EU'er realizes that there are huge swaths in the U.S. with very, very little crime. The worst is in urban areas.

And Sandy Hook is certainly not typical at all being the 2nd largest disaster of this sort ever.

Do keep in mind our much larger population which also has massive numbers of illegals.

One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.
