Violent Crime by Women Shows Rise

Violent Crime By Women Shows Rise
Violent crime by women has risen by 81% in a decade, figures have revealed...

The number of females convicted of assaults, other attacks and murder went up from 6,937 in 1998 to 12,573 in 2007, Government data showed. According to the figures, given in response to a Parliamentary question by the Conservatives, murders have more than doubled, woundings have gone up by a fifth and common assault has risen by 151%.

A total of 19 women were found guilty of murder in 2007 - the latest year for which figures are available - compared with nine in 1998. Convictions of women for life-threatening woundings rose from 99 in 1998 to 119 in 2007, while other woundings increased from 3,301 to 3,985 in the period. The number of females found guilty of common assault rose from 3,209 in 1998 to 8,068 in 2007, the figures showed. Shadow home secretary Chris Grayling said: "These figures are very alarming and it's pretty clear that they are at least in part a consequence of the binge drinking culture that has grown up around the country. "It's now clear that Labour's licensing reforms were a big mistake and we will take major steps to reform the system to tax super-strength alcohol and to stop supermarkets selling booze at a low cost price."

It is a shame that Chris Grayling and others will not face the reality that it is feminism and not "binge drinking" which is at the root of this epidemic. Probably because blaming a neutral thing such as booze will not lose them votes.
