UK: Metropolitan Police commander warns of rise in gangs

Gang numbers are on the increase in London, with 4 500 gang members responsible for 22% of the crime in the capital. But, no worries mate, just get the liberal feel-good judges to give them lenient sentences and increase the number of tax-funded ‘charities’ to work with the offenders and the problem will soon be under control…..

One of London’s top police officers has said tackling the problem of gangs in the capital was a “enduring challenge”.
Commander Steve Rodhouse said there are up to 4,500 gang members responsible for about 22% of crime in the capital.
He made the comments at the first meeting of the Greater London Authority’s police and crime committee.
St Giles Trust, a charity which works with offenders, said the economic downturn had created a “toxic potential for gangs to expand”.
Authority member Joanne McCartney, who chaired the meeting, said tackling gang crime was not just the responsibility of the police.
“We all have a part to play in tackling problems like gangs that can have such a devastating impact on communities,” she said.
The police and crime committee took over from the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) last week.
It has a scrutiny role as deputy mayor Kit Malthouse takes on key aspects of the MPA’s role as part of national moves to replace existing police authorities with directly-elected police and crime commissioners.
