The UK Home Office says reports of crimes such as robbery, wounding and racially-aggravated assault have jumped, while detection rates by police forces have decreased. As tragic as the Manchester events is, the implications on travel to the United Kingdom and Europe remain unchanged. Sadly this is the new normal. It came only 2 months after the Westminster attack in London, and security authorities report they are investigating and thwarting potential attacks on a weekly basis. It is impossible to predict where or when the next one will occur. But the fact remains the chances of being involved in a terror event are extremely small. The UK is at the same risk of terror attack today as it was before Manchester, we’re just more aware of it today, feeling the hurt and the fear. Do you feel less safe? Do you think there is more or less violent crime these days? Have you been a victim of crime recently?
