British government plans summit on rising knife crime

Two more teenagers killed as knife murders in Britain soar

Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she will hold a special meeting on tackling Britain's soaring knife-crime rate as she battles accusations that her government's austerity policies are partly to blame.

Superintendent Una Jennings, of South Yorkshire Police, said: "South Yorkshire Police was represented at the meeting to share good practice and develop a national response. When used effectively, stop-and-search is a vital tool and I am working with the police to reduce bureaucracy and ensure they can use it in the most efficient way".

She told the BBC: "We just haven't got the capacity, we just haven't got the officers at the moment so we need some money now to pay for overtime to pay for mutual aid between forces".

Speaking during Prime Ministers Questions Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: 'Does the prime minister now regret cuts in police numbers and will she undertake that under this review they will be restored to the level they were formerly at?'

The issue of deadly knife crime has dominated the UK's news agenda this week, after 17-year-old Jodie Chesney was killed in a London park on Friday, and Yousef Ghaleb Makki, also 17, died in a knife attack in the northwestern city of Manchester the following day.

Man and dog snowbound in Oregon survive on taco sauce
They tried to walk out Monday, but couldn't make it through the deep snow and returned to the stranded 4Runner. Taylor and his dog were both in good health when found, authorities said, but were very hungry.

On Tuesday Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick rebuked the PM, telling LBC there is "some link" between a reduction in police numbers and rising violent crime.

"We have to listen to them when they talk about resources", he said after meeting with senior police officers.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Monday that Mrs May "must start listening" to police chiefs over the impact of cutting 21,000 officers, adding: "You can not keep people safe on the cheap".

Thompson's area recently had three knife crime deaths: "Some of these are fistfights becoming knife attacks because people are carrying weapons", he said.

Asked if he thought the British military could help play a part in tackling knife crime, Mr Williamson told the Press Association the armed forces and Ministry of Defence "always stands ready to help any government department".

Kushner's security clearance raises fresh concerns for Oversight committee
Today, a spokesman for Kushner's lawyer said; "The clearance was handled in the regular process with no pressure from anyone". Trump wanted to override Kelly on Kushner's clearance, it would have been well within his power.

Mrs May said the problem would require "a whole-of-government effort, in conjunction with the police, the wider public sector and local communities".

United Kingdom armed forces stand "ready to respond" to the current knife crime epidemic blighting the country, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has declared, leading to much mockery on social media. We will only defeat the scourge of violence if we understand and address its complex root causes.

"If there was no correlation between crime and police, then you wouldn't have any police at all".

Police attribute the rise of fatal stabbings to various factors from gang rivalries and youth services cuts to provocations on social media.

Evidence suggests the way to stop young people being stabbed does not lie exclusively with the criminal justice system.
