Making Britain Feel Safe From Crime

Having allowed their moonbat rulers to disarm them, Britons cannot employ firearms to defend themselves against an ongoing epidemic of lawlessness. No matter; they have a much nicer means to fight crime:

Hundreds of pom-poms and knitted items have been strung from trees and lampposts to help reduce the fear of crime in an area of Leicester.

Leicestershire Police hope the “guerilla knitting” or “yarn bombing” will encourage more people to use Bede Park and Great Central Way.

Deep-thinking academic Charlotte Bilby explains the strategy:

Ms Bilby, a senior lecturer in criminology at Northumbria University, said: “I think that making an area look cosier certainly makes an area feel safer.

“If you see something that makes you smile, that makes you think that other people have enjoyed being in that space and have done something funny, something silly in that place, then that’s going to change your perception about what it is to be in Bede Park.”

Reality is just a social construct. If you imagine that the world is too goofy a place for anything seriously harmful to happen in it, you will be safe.

As for putting more cops on the street,

Ms Bilby added: “As we all know more officers on the beat doesn’t actually have a massive impact on crime rates in [an] area.”

Whereas “community involvement — community engagement” is a good “way of making an area feel safer.” In the liberal dimension, it’s all about what you feel.

The issue of allowing citizens to defend themselves as when Britain was a free country was not raised, because that would be silly.
