Could you be more specific as to which London boroughs you're refering to?

Besides the point that we're talking about knife crime and not race, are you for real????
Knife crime in London is almost exclusively a black problem. If people don't want to see this then they're not facing up to reality.

Or more accurately a poor / low socio-economical problem. As you acknowledged earlier, Scotland has no black people and historically Glasgow has had a massive knife problem.

Yes, and many more "aspiring rappers" will die so long as people believe this is the cause of London's knife crime.

Interesting. What do you believe is the cause of the knife crime then? Skin colour or a penchant for Dr Dre?

Also, no rapper EVER talks about knifing people, that's low rent. Guns are where it's at.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump is doubling-down, and calling out the Democrats on their moral priorities. Democrats are under more pressure on DACA than Trump is.

Trump is still holding the Trump card.

Maybe London can be like Chicago in no time, then the mayor can vie for Prime Minister as an accomplished "community organizer". Seems some would love that.

You have heard of the presumption of innocence?

I am sure you will track this case and inform us if anybody is actually found guilty

A problem with being found guilty is the US would have to house them in prison instead of deporting them back to the shitholes they came from.

They have no qualms about being found guilty. Guilt is MS-13's ethos:
Guilty plea in MS-13 killing of girl, 15

I'll let you track it for yourself from here.

It's not long ago that he himself was critcizing Trump in unflattering terms. Interesting to see how the equilibrium is continuously shifting.

Trump stated that he did. He was recorded saying "I grab them by the pussy." So either he grabs women by the pussy, or he is a shameless liar. Which will it be?
Both.

In terms of the Embassy, the decision to close the old one and build a new one was taken in October 2008. For those who can't keep track, that's before Obama was even elected.

I am sure you see some connection between alleged MS-13 male members being arrested in Long Island and a girl in Virginia (which is 400 miles away) pleading guilty to a crime.

Anyway good to see you actually quoting a source even if it is completely irrelevant

I don't think Trump is at all phased by name-calling. Name-calling is just a colorful manner of speaking out on the 'streets. He's a New Yorker, he knows that. Trump has street creds as a bad-ass mofo. Maybe its kind of like a cultural thing, I guess.

Sometimes, it can even be a term of endearment.

Again interesting. Which "black culture" are you referring to? London has a huge population of people from many places. Caribbean, Somalian, Kenyan, etc?

The fact you suggest they would be using "Innit" and "Fam" shows they are very much a product of being Londoners rather than anything else. Black, white and asians who grew up in London all use this vernacular, it's not a black thing in the slightest...5 mins of the dreadful Arsenal Fan TV will disabuse you of that notion.
