The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S.












By JAMES SLACK, http://www.dailymail.co.uk



Britain's violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it is revealed today.



Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types
of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa - widely considered one
of the world's most dangerous countries.



The figures comes on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his
first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour.






Britain has an even worse violence rate than South Africa (file picture)



The Tories said Labour had presided over a decade of spiralling violence.



In the decade following the party's election in 1997, the number of
recorded violent attacks soared by 77 per cent to 1.158million - or more
than two every minute.



The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:



The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.

It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.

It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number
of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than
recorded in Germany and France.

But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU
that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per
100,000 residents.



In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.







The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.



Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: 'This is a damning indictment
of this government's comprehensive failure over more than a decade to
tackle the deep rooted social problems in our society, and the knock on
effect on crime and anti-social behaviour.

'We're now on our fourth Home Secretary this parliament, and all we are
getting is a rehash of old initiatives that didn't work the first time
round. More than ever Britain needs a change of direction.'



The figures, compiled by the Tories, are considered the most accurate and up-to-date available.



But criminologists say crime figures can be affected by many factors,
including different criminal justice systems and differences in how
crime is reported and measured.





New Home Secretary Alan Johnson is to make his first major speech on crime today



In Britain, an affray is considered a violent crime, while in other
countries it will only be logged if a person is physically injured.



There are also degrees of violence. While the UK ranks above South
Africa for all violent crime, South Africans suffer more than 20,000
murders each year - compared with Britain's 921 in 2007.



Experts say there are a number of reasons why violence is soaring in the
UK. These include Labour's decision to relax the licensing laws to
allow round-the-clock opening, which has led to a rise in the number of
serious assaults taking place in the early hours of the morning.



But Police Minister David Hanson said: 'These figures are misleading.

Levels of police recorded crime statistics from different countries are
simply not comparable since they are affected by many factors, for
example the recording of violent crime in other countries may not
include behaviour that we would categorise as violent crime.



'Violent crime in England and Wales has fallen by almost a half a peak
in 1995 but we are not complacent and know there is still work to do.
That is why last year we published 'Saving lives. Reducing harm.
Protecting the public. An Action Plan for Tackling Violence 2008-11'.'



The timing of the Europe-wide violence figures is a blow for Mr Johnson,
who will today seek to reassert Labour's law and order credentials.



In his first major speech on crime since becoming Home Secretary, Mr
Johnson is expected to promise a concerted crack down on antisocial
behaviour.



He wants to set up a website to allow the public to see what is taking
place in their neighbourhood, such as the number of louts who have been
served with Asbos.



Mr Johnson is also known to support early intervention to stop children going off the rails.

    vs

    USA population = 311,591,917 (2011)

    But the USA population is likely higher due to all the illegal/undocumented immigrants.

    If you go to nationmaster.com and compare the USA vs UK, the UK outnumbers crime victims quite a bit. The only number higher in the USA is "gun related murders." That is only because of gun control laws in the UK vs USA. When you take that and also the other crime stats into consideration, it is clear that the higher cri More..

Even the FBI admit you have numerous mass murderers who they have no clue about, you have people shooting up schools and cinemas at their leisure, and I often see videos on here from America of violent acts, some even concern the police.

      No no....I understand where you were coming from. You have to take into consideration, the population. If you were to look at TOTAL overall crimes, yes the USA does have more crime totals. But if you look at the massive difference in population size and measure per 100,000 people, there is a higher percentage of crime victims in the UK.

      I am in no way bashing the UK. I have a lot of love and respect for the UK natives. I am just quoting stats, that's all.

      Well I used to the word "only" to indicate those were the only crime stats where the UK rates were higher. Did you click the link? That site has many more bad stats about the US.

      BTW, is "yank" a derogatory term meant to be offensive? Or is it like us calling you brits?
