Trump blames 'Islamic terror' for United Kingdom crime, even though homicides went down

US-POLITICS

The report barely mentions "terrorism", and instead focuses on worrying increases in gun- and knife crime, which mainly focuses around criminal gangs.

The ONS report also said that sexual offenses were up 19 percent; the number of homicides increased by 46, excluding the Manchester and London terror attacks; and much of the rise in violent offenses was due to the addition of new crime recording categories such as "violence without injury" and "stalking and harassment".

But although Trump was correct in asserting that there had been a 13% rise in "victim-based crime" in the United Kingdom in the year ending June 2017 compared to the year before, there was no evidence that the rise was linked to "Radical Islamic terror". Trump said today (20).

The ONS said police had recorded 5.2m offences in the year to June, ranging from gun crime, knife crime, robberies, sexual offences, stalking and harassment, burglary and vehicle crime.

There is also the question of how much police cuts have affected the surge in crime in the U.K.Under successive Conservative governments, the number of police officers in England in Wales has fallen by close to 20,000 from 2010, including 1,300 fewer Authorized Firearms Officers (AFOs) - the small percentage of United Kingdom police who routinely carry guns.

Annual comparisons aren't available until January.

Trump's tweet continued a tradition of looking across the pond only to see terrorism, with his previous Britain-centered comments claiming that police were afraid of radicalized citizens and criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the immediate aftermath of attacks. There has also been a 29 percent rise in hate crimes. It says 35 of 664 recorded homicides in the time period related to terror attacks in London and Manchester, or about 5 percent.

In Germany, intelligence officials said in October the number of potential Islamic terrorists had risen to 1,870. "Not good, we must keep America safe!" the USA president tweeted on Friday.

Trump has repeatedly pointed to terror attacks in Europe as evidence of the risk from jihadist groups in the US.
