London now more dangerous than New York City
It’s no joke being in the English metropolitan capital these days, violent crime spirals out of control as London’s police dash through the streets sirens whooping
Police have named a teenager who was fatally stabbed in south London as 17-year-old Katrina Makunova. Officers were called to an address in Camberwell shortly after midday on Thursday 12 July to reports of a stabbing.
Paramedics also attended but despite their best efforts, Ms Makunova passed away just after 1pm.
Scotland Yard revealed a post-mortem examination on Saturday 14 July gave the teenager’s cause of death as a stab wound to the chest. A 21-year-old man, Oluwaseyi Dada, of Brisbane Street in south-east London, was charged with manslaughter on Friday 13 July.
The Metropolitan Police has launched more than 70 murder investigations since the start of 2018, including the deaths of two children whose bodies were found in Sussex. Here is a list of confirmed victims since January 1:
Kyall Parnell, 17. The teenager died from a single stab wound to the heart in Tulse Hill, south London. Mr Parnell was one of three people to be stabbed on New Year’s Eve, but the investigation into his death was officially launched by the Metropolitan Police the following day. January 1
Steve Frank Narvaez-Jara, 20. The victim became the first person to be murdered in the early hours of the morning on January 1, at a flat near Old Street station in north London.
January 3 Elizabeta Lacatusu, 44. The Romanian national was stabbed to death at an address in Norfolk Road, Ilford, in east London.
January 6 Vijaykumar Patel, 49. Mr Patel died after sustaining critical injuries outside a shop in Mill Hill, north London. Police believe an altercation may have started after three teenage boys were refused from buying cigarette papers, over concerns about their age.
January 8 Daniel Frederick, 34. The Hackney resident was stabbed close to where he lived in Shakespeare Walk, Stoke Newington. He later died in hospital.
January 9 Oluwadamilola Odeyingbo, 18. The teenager died in a south London hospital, hours after being stabbed in Empress Drive in Chislehurst.

January 29 Juan Olmos Saca, 39. Police attended the scene of an altercation at a residential address in Atwell Road, Peckham, where Mr Saca had been fatally stabbed. He eventually died from his injuries on February 4.
This is all highly unacceptable (to have a Government that permits an unsafe situation for it’s citizens)
