London acid attack map reveals the areas of the capital too dangerous for delivery drivers because of the epidemic

Moped drivers now stop work after dark because of the danger of attacks.

Vast areas of East, North and South London have been declared “no-go zones” by terrified delivery drivers because of the acid attack epidemic, The Sun can reveal.

Moped riders say they won’t go to the violent hotspots after 8pm because they fear being attacked with acid or knives.

They have been forced to cut down their hours – taking a massive pay cut – thanks to the dangers.

The House of Commons heard last week that London has more acid attacks per head of population than any other world city.

Labour MP Stephen Timms revealed there are “parts of London where drivers are not willing to go because of the danger of attack”.

Delivery drivers told The Sun they used to work as late as 2am, ferrying takeaways and packages around the capital.

Tucker: Why didn’t we know truth about illegals and crime? (Video)

Tucker’s Thoughts: For years, we were told illegal immigrants were more law-abiding than American citizens. In fact, the opposite is true.

‘People here live in fear’: MS-13 menaces a community seven miles from the White House

“Bautista paid for her son to be smuggled to the border and the U.S. agency in charge of unaccompanied minors flew him to Maryland”

It took Abigail Bautista less than a month of living in Langley Park to learn that her new neighborhood in Maryland had its own set of laws, written not in statutes but in gang graffiti and blood.

The Guatemalan mother of five was pushing a cart of merchandise along University Boulevard one winter morning in late 2012 when three young men approached.

“Do you know who we are?” one asked her in Spanish.

Bautista shook her head.

“We are La Mara Salvatrucha,” he said. “And here, there are rules.”

Pay $60 “rent” per week or there would be trouble, he said. Undocumented and afraid of being deported if she went to police, Bautista began handing over the cash.

She had heard of the international street gang growing up in Central America, where MS-13, as it’s known, controls cities through brutality and corruption. But she had lived for the better part of a decade in the United States without crossing its path.

Liberal Jury Pays Illegal Alien Maid It Convicted of Grand Larceny, Calls Thief a ‘Victim’

A 19-year-old illegal alien pregnant with her second child who stole three rings worth $5,000 from a Fairfax County, Virginia couple whose home she cleaned as a maid sent by a cleaning company.

THis week the illegal maid was rewarded by the jury that convicted her of felony grand larceny with a $20 bonus after the jury paid her $60 fine in the case.

The jury says it reluctantly convicted her and decided to punish her as lightly as possible, fining her what she makes for a day as a maid, because they saw the thief as a “victim”.

The stolen rings were the real victim’s wedding ring and her grandmother’s engagement ring from 1943 that were appraised in 1996 at $5,000, as well as a third ring of little cash value.

“The general sentiment was she was a victim, too,” said the jury foreman, Jeffery Memmott. “Two of the women [jurors] were crying because of how bad they felt. One lady pulled out a $20 bill, and just about everybody chipped in.” Memmott then contacted the public defender in the case, and went to the home of Sandra Mendez Ortega. He gave her the jury’s collection, which totaled $80.”

The truth about crime, illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities

To extrapolate out these statistics, this means that a population of just over 3.5 percent residing in the U.S. unlawfully committed 22 percent to 37 percent of all murders in the nation. This is astounding.

There has been much rhetoric from the left and the open-borders, pro-illegal immigration lobby suggesting that illegal immigrants pose no threat to the safety and security of this nation and commit less crimes than their American Citizen and legal immigrant counterparts.

If one watches the network newscasts, the ideologues and open-borders surrogates consistently accuse Americans and law enforcement experts who suggest otherwise of being racist and anti-immigration xenophobes. If you pay attention to the rhetoric, you will find one blaring item missing — facts.

I am a former Spanish speaking career detective who investigated violent crimes within the Hispanic and other ethnic immigrant communities.

I am also a forensic criminologist who is a subject matter expert in violent crime who advocates for facts and evidence. Here are some verified crime facts and statistics with you so that you will know the truth about the precarious relationship between violent crime and illegal immigrants.

Small business owners say Portland is ‘lawless’ (Video)

The word many of them used over and over was “lawlessness.” That’s how they say Portland is beginnin g to feel because there seems to be few — or no — consequences for the repeat offenders committing crimes and intimidating both employees and customers.

About 20 small business owners in the Pearl District got together Tuesday to let City Hall know they’re fed up with what they feel is no solution to escalating crime and hostility in their area.

Boutique owner Anne Bocci recently had her life threatened by a man who’s been arrested dozens of times for similar crimes. Another nearby store owner had her business broken into a few weeks ago. And Kevin Pilla’s store, Budd and Finn, was broken into a few nights ago.

Pilla said the crime “is literally killing my business.”

Bocci said that even if police did find and fingerprint the criminal, “it would be less than 4 hours for him to go through the system and back.”

“There are no consequences,” Pilla added.

Those crimes are just several of many the group shared with Berk Nelson, a senior adviser to Mayor Ted Wheeler.

UC Riverside Student Charged With Grand Theft After Swiping MAGA Hat Of Fellow Student

Initially, the charge of “grand theft” seems excessive for a hat. This is a “wobbler” crime that can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. However, the provision below drops the $950 threshold value criteria when property is taken off a person’s body:

University of California -Riverside student Edith Macias achieved a degree of fame (or infamy) when she was involved in an ugly incident in September with a fellow student wearing a Make America Great Again hat. Macias ripped the hat off the head of student Matthew Vitale and then spouted profanities in a college office. Now Macias is looking at a charge of misdemeanor grand theft with the possibility of jail time.

Macias tore the hat off Vitale’s head on campus and, in the video below, is shown going into the student services office in a full rage. She screams at the staff that Vitale should not be allowed to wear the hat. The charge was filed after UC Riverside student Matthew Vitale, the student who had his Make America Great Again hat stolen from off his head, decided to press criminal theft charges against Macias.

Macias reportedly told police that she took the hat because it represented “genocide of a bunch of people” and wanted to burn it.

London is Falling: UK Capital Now More Dangerous than NYC… More Rape, More Robbery, More Violence

The latest crime figures for England and Wales which show violent crimes against the person surging have thrown the particular problems of the nation’s capital city into harsh light, as it reveals the city is now more dangerous than the once-notorious New York City.

Released Thursday, the new crime statistics showed plainly the astonishing rise of offences, with an overall rise of 19 per cent of violence against the person, and a 19 per cent rise of sexual offences.

Yet these numbers hide the even steeper ascent of particularly serious crimes, including a 22 per cent rise in rape, a 26 per cent rise in knife crime, and perhaps most amazingly of all — considering the United Kingdom’s draconian gun laws — a 27 per cent rise in gun crime. These increases compound another significant rise from the year before.

While these figures cover the whole of England and Wales, much of these crime surges are concentrated in the capital, London, which is experiencing an unprecedented surge in acid attacks, which comes on top of the more familiar stabbings and shootings.

Hard Data, Hollow Protests

FBI crime figures paint a very different picture of crime and policing than this weekend’s demonstrations suggest.

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 today, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend. Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide-victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population. The increase in black homicide deaths last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks. In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The Post categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as “unarmed.” That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest. Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer. Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers—committed vastly and disproportionately by black males. Among all homicide suspects whose race was known, white killers of blacks numbered only 243.

Almost Half of Crimes in Berlin Committed by Migrants

Almost half of the individuals suspected of a recorded crime in Berlin last year were individuals who don’t have a German passport, the latest police statistics show.

The proportion of crimes carried out by immigrants rose to 45 per cent last year, a five per cent increase from 2015, when they comprised 40 per cent of crimes committed in the German capital.

According to Berliner Morgenpost, which reported on the data before a longer version of the city’s crime statistics is published, the figure includes tourists, and “traveling gangs” who specialise in burglaries and pickpocketing.

Foreigners were particularly overrepresented in the figures for certain crimes, according to the statistics, which showed non-German suspects in 91 per cent of pickpocketing offences, 85 per cent of crimes related to heroin trafficking, and 80 per cent of car thefts.

The newspaper noted that the data’s inclusion of immigration violations plays a part in the large contribution migrants appear to be making to the crime scene in Berlin, yet the proportion of foreign suspects still sits at 37 per cent when border violations are taken out of the equation — well out of proportion for the actual number of foreigners in the country.
