    Muggers Rule in England

    British Home Secretary David Blunkett told The Sun newspaper on March 19 that British streets are “ruled by muggers and yobs.â€￾

    Blunkett told the newspaper that a multi-million dollar crackdown on crime had flopped.

    Recently, a columnist for one British newspaper had advocated for “grantingâ€￾ British subjects the right to carry guns for self-defense. Blunkett noted, “There is a feeling in some urban areas that it is not safe to walk the streets. We must reclaim them for decent, law-abiding citizens.â€￾

    He also predicted that the crime situation will get even worse.
