here's some more clubs to beat them with.
More than 800,000 - or one in five - of all crimes reported to the police each year are not being recorded by officers, a report suggests.
Gee, I wonder why that might be...
The problem is greatest for victims of violent crime, with a third going unrecorded. Of sexual offences, 26% are not recorded.
Then there's this:
Violent crime in England and Wales has risen by 24%, including a 9% rise in knife crime and a 7% rise in gun crime in the 12 months to June, according to police recorded crime figures.
The number of murders in England and Wales also jumped 20% to 681, a rise of 144 – the highest level for more than five years. The murder rate includes the 96 killed at Hillsborough in 1989 following the conclusion of the official inquests.
Police figures also show that the number of reported rapes and other sexual offences rose by 14%, reflecting a slowing of the recent increase in reporting rates for these types of crime.
Makes you wonder just what the real numbers are, doesn't it?
This was brought to my attention because Kevin took on a "Things are great here because no guns" Brit once again. Lots of good stuff, go read it.
