The police that attended the Carnival made almost 400 arrests at this years Carnival of chaos which they call Notting Hill Carnival, and reportedly 30 attacks on police and the event ended with a stabbing.
The Carnival that apparently celebrates: “British African-Caribbean Culture” crime toll gets worse years on year. This year there were 373 arrests made and last year there was 313 arrests.
Richard Burns who is an Inspector tweeted regarding the problems faced by Camden Police, and said:
“Five of my officers were violently attacked at #NottingHillCarnival.
“Three punched in the face. One bitten an headbutted, and another jumped on from behind.
“Three suspects arrested and one more will follow (ran off but we know who he is). Totally unacceptable!”
The police seized 37 knives, stun gun, corrosive substance and even a metal pole.
There was a male that was stabbed at around 20:00 on Monday night in Ladbroke Grove who was subsequently taken to hospital.
The unprecedented scale of this crime, violence and chaos must be tackled. Police are finding weapons on the streets en mass and are being viciously attacked for doing their job alongside yet another stabbing on the streets of the capital.
