GANGS and guns in the UK... will police act?

HOW much violence will the law enforcers allow? This BBC Panorama programme - Panorama, Gangs, Guns and the Police: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b070rnw4 - shows how little is apparently being done to stop violent criminals. Worse - communities aren't uniting against the violence. Worse than that - communities don't trust the police for historic reasons (as was hinted at during BBC Panorama).

How can communities get more organised? How can the police be more trusted?

These two issues require solutions. What are they? Feel free to comment below

VIOLENT crime in the UK rising at alarming levels +27%

KNIFE crime statistics show numbers of offences involving blades and other sharp instruments now total 27,487 - a nine (9) per cent increase over 12 months most recently measured (to Sept 2015).

The ONS table below reports rises in various types of violence in England and Wales. With ruling governments always anxious to ensure they are the best party of 'law and order', this is damning evidence of considerable failure.
Soaring increase in violent crime levels
Also notable are the huge amount of murders in the nation's capital city, London. Out of 574 killings, more than a quarter (26%) were carried out in and around the London, Thames and Essex region.

A rising level of gang-related activity is reported to be the main cause of violence nationwide, a statement which requires greater examination given the governmental politics of crime.
