    'McMafia gangs' behind London crime wave - David Lammy.

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 05 Apr 2018, 11:49 am

    Drug gangs controlled by Eastern European criminals are fuelling the rising tide of violent crime in London, a Labour MP has claimed.

    Tottenham MP David Lammy said drugs were as "prolific as ordering a pizza", comparing the situation to McMafia, a BBC drama about Russian gangsters.

    The MP said political leaders were doing nothing about it.

    The Metropolitan Police is now investigating more than 50 suspected murders this year.

    Police patrols have been stepped up and officers are using stop-and-search powers to seize weapons after the increase in violence.

    Mr Lammy said violent crime in his part of London, where there have been four murders, was the worst he had seen in 18 years as an MP.

    It appears that our political leaders are ignoring the new levels of violence in these "gang wars" and they are letting this grow to unprecedented levels.

    In America, during prohibition, when this happened a special task force known as "The Untouchables" were given the powers to cut out the organised crime at that time. Elliot Ness, as the leader, did a good job and organised crime has never came back to the levels it once was since then.

    Maybe we need something like that to tackle this growing scourge on our streets ?

    Anybody ?

    Yes these ex Eastern bloc gangs do need clearing out.

    I cannot see any modern police squad acting like The Untouchables though.

    I suppose that that would be too much to ask.

    There was a report in the paper this morning that knife violence in our schools is growing apace too.

    I do think that when people are afraid, they are more liable to carry than if they were happy and comfortable on the streets and in the schools.

    Yes Zathrus, and that is why we find all kinds of weapons on our kids at school.

    It is out of fear that many of the kids carry knives and other small weapons.

    I guess the answer is to find out who they are afraid of and to take them out.

    On the streets is another thing altogether.

    Yes Angie, "on the streets" is a whole different ballgame.

    Even so, I do think that if the police wanted to close down these gangs they should and could.
