There were 132 Murders in London last year which is less than half that of NYC, a city of nearly 9 million, with 3 million commutters and nearly 20 million overseas visitors.

Kinfe crime is falling, however this is not because of Khan it's because of new sopecialist violence reduction units and more stop and search by the police themselves, indeed it is the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police that makes operational decisions and not Khan, and police funding comes from both central Government and local council taxes.
