Violent crime in the UK is absolutely skyrocketing thanks to police cuts and a general lack of empathy shown by youth.
Youth crime is rising so fast that the statistics almost.look made up!
We had a bloke, yesterday, stabbed in a job centre, he was the security. Stabbed by a 17 year old lad in the back. I live in a very low crime area, apparently, yet can see crime happening every day.
Every night we sleep with the sound.of.sirens and wailing. I live in a quiet village south of Liverpool. If it's bad here, what's it like there!?

I live in Illinois. UP the hill from East St Louis and across the river from St Louis, murder capital of the US. The only reason my little slice of heaven isnt the wild wild west is because I guess the criminal element knows we are mostly all Mil or contractor or former mil here.. and we can shoot. Uptick?? Yeah, a steady one in the Metro area since I moved here about a decade ago.
3 factors in our inability to move to another state which we want to: We needed to stay close to the best hospitals for my middle daughter who has since passed away, our home is a historic home and we need to wait for the values to get somewhat better since we sunk so much money in it, and the husband is tied to the DoD... forever I think. Otherwise Id have fled this area long ago.
