Fact of the Day 

While listening to the radio this morning while doing a biology lab report, I heard an interesting fact:

The crime rate in London is currently seven times that of New York City.

Surprising, isn't it? Well, surprising if you didn't know how well a police force and government that is soft on crime synergizes with a populace that is not allowed to arm themselves with firearms for protection.

Currently in London, if you make a death threat, burglarize a business or home, commit assault, or molest and underage child, you are given a warning and a ticket, and then let go. That's it.


The report ended by saying that England and Wales, of the developed parts of the Western world, are the most unsafe due to crime.

But many English will accuse us of being foolish Americans. Who's really the fool?
