A 40-year-old man was stabbed on Monday in the Empire Casino, making it the latest violent and chilling sign of anarchy in London amid a complete ban on guns and knives. Police have apprehended the suspect, who is currently in custody being questioned, and say they don’t believe the attack was terror-related.
According to The Sun, the victim was attacked and stabbed in front of a group of people, who were undoubtedly shocked and scared. Police reported that the paramedics arrived on the scene and treated the man, but his condition is not yet known to the public. Consider that: he was stabbed in the middle of the day while people were watching.
It’s unclear where the victim was stabbed, how many times, and the severity of his injuries. Given he was stabbed by a knife, it would be reasonable to assume they are serious.
Authorities have not revealed the identity of the suspect, only that the person is being questioned in police custody.
While many are waiting on more information to be released, such as the suspect’s motive and whether they have any ties to terror or criminal groups, this is just the latest example of a brutal attack in London.
Mayor Sadiq Khan has been slammed by many for putting his own political ambitions above protecting the people who elected him into office.
His own people are suffering from a crime epidemic in a city he controls, but he does not care.
As reported by Conservative Daily Post, major cities in the U.K., like London, continue to impose tougher policies on law-abiding Londoners rather than the radical Islamic terrorists carrying out the attacks across the city.
In other words, disarming citizens only emboldens criminals who won’t follow the law simply because Khan asks them to. This year, London violence surpassed New York City for the first time in more than 200 years.
In March, London reported 15 murders compared to 14 in New York City, New York. In February, there were 22 reported murders in London compared to 21 in New York City.
The U.K. not only has the strictest gun control laws in the world, the country is banning knives and deploying police to ensure citizens are completely disarmed.
Left-wing lawmakers like Khan are more concerned with carrying out childish antics than actually protecting citizens. With murders and knife attacks at historic levels in London, many argue that Khan and other leaders in the city haven’t brought forward a sustainable plan to address the historic crime levels.
Citizens can’t even attend a casino in broad daylight without being attacked. As bad as it is in London, many fear that it could get much worse if something is not done to combat crime.
