In the days when petty thieves were sent to the gallows, the situation for the thief was a little different than today. It was steal or your family starve to death. Today we have the wonderful social and no one starve.
Its not the length of time spent in prison which will stop a prisoner from re-offending it is the conditions. Make prison time the same as the old DQ time and then see the re -offending rate drop. Bring back the death penalty for drug dealing, OK lets be soft and only use it on the third time of conviction. Singapore does not seem to have a problem with drugs.
Finally while the thieving bast@rds are locked up, they are not thieving.

The reason people re-offend is they still believe they will get away with it, look at what the clear up rates are, then take account of the TICs and you will see that most of the little scrotes are still out there. The sods who burgled my garage twice were never caught and that is the norm. Get better detection and conviction rates and the crime rates will fall.

I am quite sure if I put my slight intelect to the problem I could do over a few houses a week and not be caught, and even if I was with a good brief I would probably get off as the plods may well have made some minor procedural cock up (with all the paer work they have to do they are bound to make mistakes). Now being an ex Pig I don't do these thing, I foolishly work for a living in hope of a pension some day, but one can see why people are criminals, the odds are currently in their favour.
 
I fully agree with the need for better detection rates, however the police have an extremely difficult job to do making ensuring that motorists are not travelling too quickly. Occasionally they do strike lucky and find one of these motorist has been out thieving. More plods on the beat, more rewards for information leading to convictions.

The reality is that that there are so few plods checking up om motorists that driving standards are falling badly. Policing motorists has been left to the flash bang cameras.

I would agree that we need to get more of the policvemen we have out catching vilains, but there are none left on traffic to steal.

There are two things we need to do to dramticaly cut crime and the impact that crime has on every day lives, firstly improve significantly the detection and conviction rate, and secondly solve the drug problem.
 
Solving the drug problem link with crime is simple - legalise them, just as they were 50 years ago and sell them over the counters at pharmacies. Its incredible that as soon as drugs became easily accessible to other classes, rather than just the upper class, shock, horror they were made illegal.

The other, medical and professional issues associated with drugs can be tackled by using profits to fund education programmes about drugs and treatment centres and random testing for abuse where safety issues are concerned (armed forces, driving etc.)

Before some parents condemn me, the effects of drugs can be horrific but its not just kids at risk (remember Frank Bough?) and what to me is much worse is a society, especially the elderly, living in fear of the crimes of those wanting to feed their habit. Some will still remember when people never used to lock their front doors. The insurance industry must certainly have profited in the last couple of generations......

Agree with you on legalising drugs, that would stop the profits made by organised crime.
Disagree with you on why people never used to lock their doors.
The reason was people were less affluent then, so much so most people had little or nothing to steal.
 
I was walking past a nightclub recently when a couple of young asian lads were trying to get in. They were dressed in jeans, trainers and t shirts, not what you would call smart either.

I heard one of the lads shout "you're not letting me in because i'm black" to which one of the bouncers replied "i'm not letting you in becuase of the way you're dressed, and you're not black, you're a paki"!

I must admit i found it amusing, as did the black bouncer working the door with him.

I live in an area where there are no go areas for white people.

Young asian men also have a really annoying habbit of parking their cars right next to each other on busy roads and winding down their windows for a chat. They don't give a toss about the traffic they're holding up bahind them. You dare to give them a toot on the horn and they're out of the car shouting and gesticulating. Very intimidating.
