Wow… even I’m impressed by the weapons being used by the criminals in London as the crime (tidal) wave continues:
Clearly, banning the things won’t do any good, just as banning guns hasn’t worked too well.
And the violence is no longer confined to the scuzzy areas of London and the other cities; I saw from a pic in another article that one of the attacks took place where I took a stroll in London just a few months ago.
I’ve been racking my brain for some kind of solution to this — seriously, I have — and the more I look at it, there are only a few solutions:
- Flood the streets with cops — but the Brits don’t have enough cops.
- Allow the citizens to arm themselves — like that’s going to happen.
- Reinstate the death penalty (especially for scum who do things like this) and get serious about executing dangerous / murderous criminals — that ain’t gonna happen either.
- When (if) they catch the criminals, deport them to a penal colony (like France’s old Devil’s Island of Papillon fame) — wait a minute, that has promise, because if any country in the world owns a bunch of uninhabited, remote islands, it would be the Brits. Granted, it would take a few years to build the accommodations, but we’re talking concrete cellblocks, not the Ritz. And it’s not like they haven’t done it before (hello, Australia!) so there is precedent. (Escape from New York is starting to look less like a dystopian fantasy and more like a blueprint, isn’t it?)
Sadly, though, the Brits don’t seem to have the balls to do any of the above. Utter chaos is coming, if it isn’t there already. What a mess. (Although the Britcops seem to have no difficulty in dealing with hardened criminals like this bad boy…)
If anyone has any bright ideas different to mine, feel free to share them — and I’m not talking fantasies (I can assemble a few of those all by myself); I need workable solutions, because the Brits seem to be at a loss.
