Stabbing sprees are bad, but without them happening in the UK Sweden will not survive.
Another six young people have been stabbed overnight in Sadiq Khan’s London, which recently surpassed New York City for murders for the first time since 1800.
The first victim was a man believed to be in his early twenties, who was stabbed in Billet Road, Walthamstow, around 12:50 p.m., The Telegraph reports.
Then in the early evening, at around 5:30 p.m., a 15-year-old stab victim was found on East India Dock Road, East London.
Shortly afterwards another two 15-year-olds were stabbed in Mile End, Tower Hamlets, leading to two arrests for conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and attempted murder.
The status of the boy stabbed on East India Dock Road is unclear, but the Mile End victims are said to be in a “serious but stable” condition.
Two boys, aged 15, taken to hospital following stabbing in Grove Road, E3 remain in hospital in a serious but stable condition. The 16-year-old treated for minor injuries has now been arrested for conspiracy to commit GBH. Another male also remains in custody for attempted murder
Around an hour later at 6:57 p.m. police and paramedics were called to the stabbing of a 13-year-old boy, who is also currently in a “serious but stable” condition.
Three “juvenile males” were subsequently arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent — rather than attempted murder, for reasons which are unclear.
Finally, the last known victim of the night’s violence was stabbed in Ealing Broadway, West London, at around 7 p.m. — a male said to be in his late teens.
