England’s Crime Rate Nearly Four Times Higher than United States

I’ll give Piers Morgan credit for one thing: He’s not afraid to interview people who have strong disagreements with him. He’s giving them a platform for views that rarely see the light of day on liberal networks.

He had Alex Jones of InfoWars on a few nights ago. While Jones was a little over the top, he didn’t roll over for Morgan. Too many conservatives want to be friends with the media as if their agreeable style will somehow endear them to the liberal media establishment. It will never, never, never happen.

Morgan also had Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America on. Don’t mess with Larry Pratt. He comes to interviews prepared, and he’s a lot more measured and calm than Jones. In his December 19, 2012 interview, Pratt had said that “evil’s in our hearts. Not in the guns.” That’s probably the first time the secularist Morgan ever heard that before. Of course, it’s true. Good people, or at least people who work hard to say no to evil thoughts and desires, do not murder people. When some usually good person “snaps,” the snapping is the evil in them (James 1:13–15; Mark 7:14–15).

Pratt went on to say to Morgan in the interview:

“The problem occurs, sir, in those areas precisely where we have said ‘no guns.’ The problem doesn’t occur where the guns are allowed freely to be carried to be used by people. There we have very low murder rates.”

Pratt returned to Morgan’s show on January 9th of this year. The sparks flew over crime statistics.

The vast majority of people in England do not own guns. Guns are heavily restricted. Morgan sees this as one of the reasons crime is low in England. At least that’s what he’s been trying to pass off to his low-information viewers . . . until Larry Pratt showed up for round two.

Pratt maintained that the official police homicide numbers are cooked. “The data that you are using for the murder rate in England is a sham,” Pratt countered. “There’s a monumental miss-reporting of what constitutes murder. If three people are murdered, it’s likely to be counted as one event.” In fact, an article on crime statistics in England makes the same point: “there are the official police figures (which historically under-record the true level of crime).”

Morgan couldn’t handle the truth. He accused Pratt of “deliberately lying, deliberately twisting” the data. Where did Pratt get his information? Instead of there being 39 murders in 2011 that Morgan claimed, Pratt stated there were 970. “That’s exactly what your own constabulary is saying,” insisted Pratt.

Then just yesterday, I came across an article that was published in The Telegraph on July 2, 2009:

“Analysis of figures from the European Commission showed a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offences in the UK since [the] Labour [Party] came to power.

The total number of violent offences recorded compared to population is higher than any other country in Europe, as well as America, Canada, Australia and South Africa.

“The UK had a greater number of murders in 2007 than any other EU country — 927 — and at a relative rate higher than most western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

It gets worse. “Overall, 5.4 million crimes were recorded in the UK in 2007 — more than 10 a minute — second only to Sweden. . . . It means there are over 2,000 crimes recorded per 100,000 population in the UK, making it the most violent place in Europe.”

Great Britain’s crime rate is nearly four times that of the United States. “By comparison, America has an estimated rate of 466 violent crimes per 100,000 population.”

    Some one should tell Fox news this as they are running around telling the world the USA. is the most violent place on the planet .

    • drattastic

      Fox News is moving farther and farther left everyday. I simply stopped watching any news on TV .

    • EMIRCITNA

      FOX NEWS will only release what their owners, Australian Globalist, Rupert Murdoch and Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, will allow them to!
      ~ In my opinion, it is the objective of FOX NEWS to catch those that are informed enough to have left the other controlled alphabet networks, but not informed enough to realize that they are being played in the “Good Cop~Bad Cop” ploy!
      ~ The cancelling of Judge Andrew Napolitano’s, Freedom Watch, is a good indicator of “censoring” someone who is getting “too close” to TRUTH!!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/stanton.lore Stanton Lore

        Fox is after ratings, and it’s anchors brag on-air about it. I doubt the truthfulness of any person or group driven by the need for popularity. Fox is just another side of the same media mountain also occupied by MSNBC and CNN.

      • OldNYFirefighter

        As long as far left Liberals have controlling interests in any news organization, the facts will be hidden if it doesn’t support their Liberal agenda. Fox News is better than most, but is far from a totally free News reporting organization. Until true Conservatives gain control, you will never see totally truthful news reporting.

        • sarasif

          Well that’s just not true. Anyone with an agenda will report what will serve said agenda most. I trust neither political party or their followers to ever report the full truth.

  • Bruce Feher

    Fox news has lost this viewer.

    • OLD MAN

      And then listen to the “alphabet” TV stations and see what biased, liberal news you get………wake up.

      • Bruce Feher

        I never watch them either.

      • Glenn

        Well thats the problem then they are not even “News stations” they are propaganda disinformation sites. Heck they would make ol Bagdad Bob proud.

    • Truth goes 100 MPH

      Care to explain? Sesame Street is not where you will find “Hard” news. The MSM didn’t report Fast And Furious for 1 1/2 years. It was only when Holder was to be held in contempt that the alphabet stations jumped into the mix. Sorry, but Fox seems to be the only place I can hear about the news NOW. Not totally in love with them but what is the alternative?

      • Dara Walker

        The alternative: TheBlaze/tv.

      • Bruce Feher

        Fox has slowly gone to the center and in my view they don’t cover the real news as much as they should. I remember when there was more news than opinion, not now….at least in my opinion. (HA)

    • proudtexan62

      Fox is the only news that is truly fair and balanced, not to mention truthful. All the others are totally and completely left and only report news detrimental to the middle and right!!!!

      • Sue

        ALL news is biased. They present it with a different face is all.

      • Bruce Feher

        In my view, FOX is an opinion channel, very little hard news.

  • Bobseeks

    Facts and statistics do not matter to liberals, they want to take our guns and that is all that matters to them. They would love to see a rise in the crime rates because that means more government employees and programs to deal with the rise in crime rates.

    • proudtexan62

      They don’t have the intellgence to analyze statistics. It’s “soup de jour” for them. They are like ducks and wake up in a new world every morning with a new rule, regulation or law to put on the books! Ridiculous is the only thing to call it.

    • EMIRCITNA

      Call “Liberals” what they are….COMMUNISTS!

      “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” (Attributed to Norman Mattoon Thomas’ 1944 speech)

      “The goal of socialism is communism.”

        We are already socialist,the government controls everything you do .the workplace, healthcare,what you do with your house and property the media,school,retirement,like i said everything.Just because they say we are’nt socialist does’nt mean it.

      • digger

        what do you mean someday. we are already there.

      • Drew Page

        I believe the comment was “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of progressivism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program …” “Progressivism” is just another euphamism for socialism. It sounds nicer than socialism and who can be against “progress”?
        “Progress carries a positive connotation, yet not all progress is good; it depends what you are progressing toward. Cancer progresses until it kills you. The same can be said for obesity, smoking, drug and/or alcohol addiction. Spending more than you earn progresses to financial ruin.

  • Fred_K

    As usual libs cook the numbers. Guns, especially semiautomatic ones in the hands of the individual are the best deterrrent to crime of all types.The more bullets you can put in the air, the less chance that a criminal will confront you.

    • John D

      I disagree. The best thing for home defense is a 12 GA pump shotgun.

      • http://www.facebook.com/reginald.zenkewich Reginald Zenkewich

        And the best round for the 12 guage is the self defense round with a .65 ball and 6 32 cal balls behind it will not wound the criminal but you know what will be when hit with this round. Double 00 and 27 buck are what i would load in my 12 guage.

        • Moose

          Rock Salt, it won’t kill them, but it would leave a stinging reminder as to why they do not want to illegally enter your home and confront you again. I would all so wire an electric fence charger to my car and set it up to where I can turn it on and off with remote, for auto theft protection.

        • flyovercindy

          I LIKE it! …but, if they are IN my house, I like the 00 buck better – I want that sucker STOPPED. The rock salt is for the loser trying to steal my car… in case I don’t have it wired…

        • OldNYFirefighter

          Find yourself an old model T Ford ignition coil, they are still around. I wired one for a buddy who was in college as the guys were always changing spark plug wires & other shenanigans on him. His was wired to a switch so when they popped the hood, it knocked them across the parking lot. Needless to say, they never screwed with his car again. He had a switch inside, under the dash to turn it on & off. They are still findable at garage sales & flea markets. To get the best results add one of those rubber ground straps (antistatic) so the chassis is grounded while the car is stopped. Be sure to wrap it in three or four raps of rubber or it will jump a 2″ gap to the car frame. Hurts like he!!, but non-fatal.

        • http://www.facebook.com/zalman.shalom.5 Zalman Shalom

          I don’t use pellets that splash blood all over the walls and carpet(the criminal isn’t worth what it costs to repaint and replace carpet). Birdshot in the face or gut at fairly close range will do.

        • OldNYFirefighter

          So will rock salt. I guarantee they will head for the nearest pool, pond, river or water. Belly or butt shot will having them dragging their butts on their way off of your property, extremely rapidly. Half a dozen small crystals are sufficient.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Don-Scott/1520577600 Don Scott

    Yeah, And Piers Morgan wants us to give up our guns… What a Moron

    • Nottakenyan

      911 police response time—————23 minutes.
      .38 calibur pistol——————–1700 feet per second!!!

      • nunya

        FYI – ,38 caliber is not even close to 1700fps…. More like 800-900fps. 1700fps and higher is what you might see in a over-powered black powder musket.

        • rycsailor

          I’m looking at a package of 9mm right now and the velocity is 1475 fps, energy 483ft-lbs., your estimate of a “blackpowder” musket is well off the mark, 1400fps max, there are modern rifles that can exceed 4,000 fps.

        • Daniel

          Nottakenyan, nunya…You’re both wrong. Your average pistol is around 1100 to 1200 feet per second. Your black powder musket has about the same velocity as your modern pistol. Black Powder has a slower burn/expansion rate than, your modern powders. That’s why, even with a long barrel and more propellant, a musket is in the same lower muzzle velocity category as your short barrel pistol.

        • Claims1

          Doesn’t anyone pay attention to the issue as stated by Nottakenyan. You guys are all in a lather about fps, velocity, black powder. “Even the slowest velocity of black powder, 9mm automatic or 38 cal. pistol’s response time beats 23 minutes. Don’t you think?

        • AlanfromNY

          More importantly whether it’s a slow 875 foot per second or 1400 fps, the perp is not going to outrun either!! A fast moving per might reach what? 15 mph? which is 22 fps!!

        • OldNYFirefighter

          At my age, even with a gator in pursuit my escape velocity is about 5′/sec. That is why I carry a 9mm with +P ammo. The police always get there quick enough to call the coroner or medical examiner. Police are like an insurance policy, it can be canceled when you need it most.

        • Nottakenyan

          Claims 1————————–taught school for 32 years so I am very familiar with sloooooooooooooow learners.
          Thanks for your help!

        • http://www.facebook.com/zalman.shalom.5 Zalman Shalom

          .45 caliber bullets don’t even hit 900 FPS. 9mm are closer and .38 specials and .357 magnums are faster than a .45 caliber.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jonna.smith Jonna Persky Smith

          .45′s move slower and have more kick, at close range. My hubby’s preferred choice bc it will knock down even someone high on PCP.

        • http://twitter.com/MacdonaldCory Macdonald Cory

          Who cares how fast a bullet travels; it is still faster than the cops.

        • larrygrant876

          Especially when the cops have been told to wait for a certain period of time after the last gunshot to respond like they do in some gang areas of California

        • Svedli

          Obviously you are not a gun person, Macdonald. If you were, you would know that it is extremely important how fast a bullet travels. Study it a little more and you will appear much more believable.

        • OldNYFirefighter

          In some areas cops are slower then the Aflak Duck.

        • http://www.facebook.com/harley.helmuth Harley Wilson Helmuth

          According to the Lyman reloading book, which I have on my lap. A cast 356242 bullet, 5.7 grains of Titegroup powder has a Velocity of 1006 fps. Not 1700 fps, but over 1000 fps. Definitly over 900 fps.

      • Lauralee Hensley

        In 23 minutes you could have already bleed out from your wounds. Do you think the EMT’s are going in before the police arrive to secure the scene? So who are you going to depend on? Those wounds don’t have to be caused by a gun either. They could be caused by internal trauma due to a furious and fast beating which could cause the liver or spleen to start bleeding, etc.., The wound could be caused by knives, screw drivers, hammers, tire irons, etc… People just don’t get it, do they.

          Liberal Marxists dont get it because they dont want to get it. They are purposefully obtuse in every argument.

        • Conservativesniper

          You are correct. Look what happened to Jose Guerena USMC two tours in Iraq. MURDERED in his own home by the Pima Cnty, Sheriffs Dept..SWAT team. Clarence Dupnik is the sheriff which allowed an American hero to be murdered in his own home. It took Jose a little longer than 23 minutes though. He was denied medical attention for multiple times longer. EMT’s were only allowed access to him after he was dead.

      • Bomar22

        However, my choice of weapon is a 40 cal SigSauer.

        • OldNYFirefighter

          Good choice! Less recoil than a .45 cal, but more knockdown power then a 9mm. A lot people prefer a .380 because of lower recoil, but not as much knockdown power. If it is a head shot, even a .22 LRHP will do the trick. Accuracy is the most important factor in self defense.

      • http://www.facebook.com/stephen.maestas.9 Stephen Maestas

        The typical .38 special round travels at 800-900 fps., but your point is well understood ;-)

        • OldNYFirefighter

          Even a paintball between the eyes will deter most thugs, especially if it is red. One of our not so bright criminal element thought he was dying when a neighbor shot him in the belly with one while trying to steal an ATV. Needless to say the EMT he called laughed his ars off while the police took his sorry ars off to jail.

    • Raymond

      Sometimes you just cannot argue with the numbers. If these numbers are
      correct and true, the USA has bigger problems on their hands other than who
      was elected President.

      From Bill O’Reilly’s message board..

      Most everyone suspected fraud, but these numbers prove it and
      our government and media refuse to do anything about it.

      As each state reported their final election details, the
      evidence of voter fraud is astounding. Massive voter fraud has been
      reported in areas of OH and FL, with PA, WI and VA, all are deploying
      personnel to investigate election results.

      Here are just a few examples of what has surfaced with much
      more to come.

      * In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama
      received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for
      Romney. (a mathematical and statistical impossibility).

      * In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of
      the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their
      polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney.
      (another statistical impossibility).

      * In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only
      98,213 eligible voters.

      * In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered
      eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

      * The National SEAL Museum , a polling location in St. Lucie
      County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

      * Palm Beach County , FL had a 141% voter turnout.

      * In Ohio County , Obama won by 108% of the total number of
      eligible voters.

      NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID
      and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

      Imagine that!

      • Pclages

        The Democrats will do whatever it takes to win. I wonder when the GOP will get the message, and decide to fight fire with fire.

      • Bomar22

    What I know is that when the UK banned the private ownership of guns that the rate of hofme invsions went up by 17% I am a liberal but I am totaly against banning any type of gun we should instead require that any one who is going to get a gun have to undergo a very thorough mental psyciatric evaluation and that all persons who do have guns have to be re-evaluatied atl least once a year to be sure that they are not mentaly disturbed also they have to have a license and all guns should be registered of course.

    • kellys

      And which government provided bureaucrat is suitable for the governments screening process, this is one of the major problems with government bureaucracy, the government has an agenda, it is neither fair nor unbiased and will not make a good moderator. Who will make the rules or enforce fairness?

    • Samantha Smart

      Liberal double talk as usual. Go troll on the Huffington Post. They welcome you there.

    • John D

      Well, Mr. Smith, you are a little more sensible than most libs, but you are still an extremist. You and I cannot buy a gun from a gun shop without a background check. That check should include whether or not you have been deemed as mentally unstable or disturbed by a competent authority. Currently it does not. I am not opposed to background checks for people buying guns at gun shows. Currently that is a loophole. Unfortunately, none of these steps would have affected Sandy Hooks or the Columbine murders. Those weapons were stolen.

      Your solution is asinine and extreme. 40,000 people year die in auto accidents. By your logic, all drivers should have yearly mental exams. Why aren’t you proposing that?

      Most of us are vehemently opposed to gun registration. I consider that a violation of my 2nd amendment rights. I do not trust this government to not try and confiscate guns. There are too many extremists like you in the government.

    • Ford

      Since I am mentally disturbed, I will steal guns from you who have passed all checks and evaluations and have licensed and registered them.

        John, unlike some of the narrow minded folks cluttering up Liberty Alliance websites, I get information from a lot of sources both lib and conservative, leftist and right wingish and draw my conclusions. I am no gun hating leftie as I am a gun owner and as a self employed business person, I lean to the fiscally conservative end. Facts are facts and I know statistics can be used in many ways to mislead yet by any measure crime is higher in the US than GB and we do put many, many folks in prison for seemingly harmless crimes and I do believe that white collar criminals get a free ride. Never been to an OWS rally but do support some of their grievances as do many ethical folks employed by the financial industry.

  • brkdrvr

    Rarely is Switzerland mentioned in crime and gun control stats, granted they are a homogenous and stable country but I believe that nearly every household contains a fully automatic military “assault rifle” while they enjoy a very low crime rate and little or no history of gun violence and/or mass shooting sprees. Any comments??

    • Glenn

      Come on now don’t be throwing real statisics in the liberal cake now.

    • brkdrvr

      I stand corrected not every household contains “assault rifles”. But apparently Switzerland does have the highest militia gun ownership rate in the world with 420,000 fully automatic SIG 550 rifles in private homes, 39% of Swiss households contain guns, nearly as high as the U.S. The # of gun related homicides in 2010 was recorded at 40 out of 53 cases of homicide total. The annual Swiss rate of homicide by guns per 100,000 population was 0.52 which is approximately 1/3 of U.S.A. The UK’s low rate is in question as their reporting is reported to be skewed by reporting multiple homicides in the same incident as one, before you cry foul remember these are Brits the mos treacherous politicians in world history ie. There is a reason they are hated by; The Scot’s, Irish, Indians, Pakistanis, etc.

      • Herman

        years ago I used to know some men who were criminals, and they all were for gun control. When I asked why, they said they could defend them selves against ball bats and knives, then they could bullets. Mainly they didn’t have to worry about getting shot.

        • cactusbob

          That tells it all, doesn’t it. Trouble is, most of the gun grabbers don’t care about that part, they don’t want people to be able to defend themselves against a government that plans on being tyrannical, like the Obama regime.

    • John D

      They are required by law to have a gun. They are also provided with free ammunition from the government.

    • horpeide

      Switzerland homogenous? Theyve got four languages (German, French, Italian, and Romansch), and even the German they speak on the street differs from what they speak in school. I note that they own guns, but they’re legally required to keep them locked up.

  • Nottakenyan

    When peaceful citizens relinquish their guns, only the crooks and criminals have guns.

    • John D

      The police are responders. They are very necessary, and I am a big supporter, but they only show up after the fact to investigate the crime. Seldom do they arrive in time to make a difference.
      When seconds matter, the police are only minutes a day.

      • Claims1

        Agree John. The wife in Loganville, Ga was putting 5 – 38 cal.bullets into the home invader, while her husband was on the phone with her “and the police”, who told the husband “They are on their way”.

You will never get Pierce Morgan to admit that England is a very dangerous place to live, 4 times more dangerous than the US. Figures don’t lie but liars can figure he presents his set of facts but leaves out the true picture. He should go back to England but he couldn’t work there as he was fired there …

    “Morgan was fired as Editor of the Daily Mirror on 14 May 2004 after authorizing the newspaper’s publication of photographs allegedly showing Iraqi prisoners being abused by British Army soldiers from the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment. Within days the photographs were shown to be crude fakes.” ~ wikipedia.org ~
    so what can you expect from a liar

    If 51% of the people in this country voted for the Leftist-socialist Muslim do you think they have any brains to see their civil rights are being taken away. Welcome to the United Socialist States of America.

      It is surprising the the 51% could get their hands out or their pants long enough the push the voting machine button. I frequently think of Sam Kinison and think how the @#$#% did you even get registered & to the polls?? likely the same way they were guided to all the free social entitlements by their democrat plantation masters.

        God I miss Sam Kinison!!! I’m always quoting his schtick about the reason the Africans are starving . . . “THE PROBLEM ISN’T THAT THERE’S NOT ENOUGH FOOD . . . THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU LIVE IN THE DESSERT!!!”

      There is one thing to remember, “These who cast the votes decide nothing. These who count the votes decide everything”. Joseph Stalin. This is what I think happened in the last Presidential Election. With all the problems they had with the new electronic voting machines, I wonder who really did win, and who stole the election.

        it happened in the last presidental election to. Mccains staff wanted to do recounts in alot of states but Mccain wouldn’t he said after the 2000 election and trouble they had then he wouldn’t put the country through that again.

      I don’t believe 51% voted for obummer, I think the election was stolen by fraud and illegal’s. You can’t tally more than 100% in a district and not have fraud going on. They cooked the #’s and now they want him to have a 3rd term.

      Communists are people who are dependent, want to be taken care of from cradle to grave. They have no creativity, no smarts. God expects everyone to carry their own weight.

    The sad thing is we are living at a time when emotions not reason seems to rule the day. And when slime ball politicians can play on our emotions and not engaging our critical thinking skills by giving us the facts emotions win out resulting in bad laws and policies. These politicians want laws and policies that serve them and their purposes not ones that are good for the people.
