EPIC UK crimewaves at start up

is it just me or does the UK always start with an epic crimewave? (loads of crime, organised crime and vigalante mobs!). If i got this occasionally id find it amusing and assume it was a luck of the draw thing but I seam to get it every time…is it intentional?

As a Brit wasn’t under the impression we needed batman to come save the day (I get the superhero event quite frequently)
