Liberal Party NEC Statement - London knife crime
The Liberal Party notes last weekend’s tragic knife related murder in Finsbury Park of a 20-year-old teenager, the 58th such murder this year in the nation’s capital.
Each loss of life is a tragedy, for the victim, the bereaved family, the wider community, and for those caught up in an embedded culture of city gangs.
The Liberal Party calls for a concerted initiative to curb the spiralling list of victims. This needs to start with Increased community policing and intelligence gathering, coupled with local initiatives to draw young people away from street crime.
Such community lead initiatives should extend from schools to community centres and town centres, aimed at engaging with young people and drawing them away from gang related crime which blights communities and young lives.
