1 in 5 Teenage Criminals in England is Muslim

Now remember that Muslims in the UK are only 3 percent of the population. Muslims, due to their birth rate, have a much higher teenage population. And due to their urban focus, in some cities Muslim teenagers can make up to a third or a quarter of the teenage population. But these are still truly horrible numbers that should be a wake up call for what the UK will be like with even a very large Muslim minority, never mind a majority.

The proportion of young Muslim men in youth jails in England and Wales rose by more than a quarter last year, figures showed today.

One in five males (21 per cent) in young offender institutions identified themselves as Muslim in 2011/12, compared with 13 per cent in 2009/10 and 16 per cent in 2010/11, the annual review of children and young people in custody showed.

The proportion of youth offenders in custody from black and minority ethnic communities also rose slightly to 42 per cent, from 39 per cent in 2010/11

The study, published jointly with the Youth Justice Board, showed the total number of young people in custody fell by 14 per cent last year.

So even as the total numbers of offenders fell sharply, the number of Muslim offenders rose sharply. This was not driven by racism, as the PC corps will claim, because the number of minority offenders did not rise by all that much, the growth came from Muslim offenders.

Now, to make this really interesting, we would have to narrow these figures down by types of offenses, especially violent crimes and sexual assaults.
