A devastating level of violence unfolded in Islington two nights ago where two police officers were stabbed and two more were injured for responding to reports of a disturbance.
Police officers responded to call regarding a fight at an residential address, 2 male officers ended up getting stabbed and a further 2 female officer also received injuries including a fractured wrist and a head injury.
A Taser was used by the officers during the attack.
One of the suspects a 19-year-old man was arrested on the suspicion of attempted murder. The other 19-year-old man was arrested for affray.
Superintendent Mike Hill, Central North Command Unit spoke regarding the incident:
“This incident demonstrates the courage and professionalism officers show day in day out in what can often be a dangerous job. When officers respond to what can often be a difficult situation or go to assist members of the public they should not be met with violence, it is completely unacceptable.
Whilst arrests have been made if you have any information that can assist police with their ongoing inquiries; witnessed the attack or what occurred prior to police attendance please get in touch.”
You could argue these type of cases demonstrate the complete break-down of law and order in the United Kingdom and especially London. A much firmer attitude must be taken towards violent crime involving weapons in regards to police on the streets and the judges in the courtrooms.
Knife-crime and violence does not discriminate and when our police officers are being attacked in such a callous manner for simply responding to a disturbance, it reveals that this situation has got out of control.
