It is often said, "nothing unusual, we just get to know about them more easily these days".

Not so really, why? Because in this case this murder was reported half way down this paper's web page, the headlines? Yes you've got it the Sussex's baby.

Seems we're going to be under the annual average at this rate.
Do you think banning hoodies would help?

/// Do you think banning hoodies would help? ///

Not a bad idea Zacs, horrible item of clothing.
Cities have a lot of people living there, so there are bound to be more murders.
So we have to assess whether London’s murder rate is excessively higher than other cities.
In the list of cities by murder rate, London does not even feature in the top 50.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_murder_rate

For a city of its size, the London murder rate is probably average (or statistically, what we would expect).
the sussex baby is still alive isnt he?
unless AOG you have been down to Windsor or else I have missed the point

lot of it in Mank recently - one outside a failsworth pub, two after a chase in Stockport and two last night in Mewton Heath ....
"Not a bad idea Zacs, horrible item of clothing."

A very sweeping statement.

My grandmother wears a hoodie when walking the dog to keep her ears warm. I wear a hood when working especially if it rains, I have a branded work hoodie.
Clothes don't kill people, people kill people.
I would imagine zacs was being sarcastic... we have branded hoodies and are homecarers. I have never stabbed anyone, even while wearing a hood...
thx Grom grom
I didnt realise that mairder in London was such a non starter and that a vizeet to south america cd seriously damage your health

London bridge inquests have started - one Brit and five tourists dead ....
I was indeed being ironic. But look who fell for it! This is the level of thinking we’re up against folks.

This is our capital in our country, there are much worse things happening in countries around the world and have always been so.
Does that mean that we should always be comparing ourselves with other countries and if found that these are much worse than ours then we have nothing to be bothered about?

/// Knife crime has surged to the highest levels since records began in England and Wales, new figures reveal. ///

Nothing to be proud of, don't you think?
Gromit was merely putting things in perspective. The conclusion is that large concentrations of people generate a large number of murders but London isn’t the worst.
What do you intend to do about it, AOG?
Although I did think ZM was taking the mickey I just want to point out that hoodies were banned in a lot of shopping centres as long ago as 2006. Our local antiques market also bans any form of head covering .
// Nothing to be proud of, don't you think?//
and nothing to be ashamed of - in the international scale

I often try AOGs non sequiturs on my frenz
and laugh to see their little faces pucker up as the complete nonsense hits their brains ....

Whilst hiding behind certain items of clothing.
(Blimey, he’s actually going to try and make a case for it)
So you're suggesting to ban clothing?

Perhaps you should question your level of thinking when you enter a post, because most of ABers if they were honest, can't understand a word that you are saying.
