As we all know, sharp weapons are being used for thousands of years. In the early years they used sharp weapons for mostly survival like:
.hunting animals for food
They have also used this to commit crimes however the amount of commitments don't seem to have decreased until today, it has increased highly within this modern society which is affected because of the amount of people who takes the advantage of high population to murder.
Reasons for commiting crimes
It has already been discussed by other BNC members of the reasons behind youngsters commiting crimes but now lets focus on adults.
. Bad paranting can definitaly be one as the growth is likely to show up when childrens turn older.
.Being addicted to alchohol and drugs.
.Great loss in business or maybe even in life because of losing someone.
.Poverty is another one because some people don't want to be poor for ever so they take bad shortcuts.
. low self-esteem
These would be main reasons for an adult commiting crimes and doing actoins that are against the law.
If crimes are captured you obviously have to face the consequences so here are they:
.Knife crime - four years in prison and£5,000 fine.
.Typically a convicted murderer is given a life sentence or even the death penalty for such an act.
. Stealing results in fines, which are usually proportionate to the amount stolen; higher theft amounts may result in greater fines.
If you are caught with a knife it doesn't matter if it was for your own protection or you were carrying it for someone else - you will be arrested and prosecuted. The average prison term for those jailed for carrying a knife has gone up from over seven months, with 81% serving at least three months, compared with 57% only 10 years ago. To carry a knife you would need an absolute valid reason like for those who are fishermen or carpet fitters however the rule only applies if there're at work. The explanations for rising knife crime have ranged from police budget cuts, to gang violence and disputes between drug dealers. Although knife crime is on the increase, it should be seen in context. It's relatively unusual for a violent incident to involve a knife, and rarer still for someone to need hospital treatment. Most violence are caused by people attacking ways which would be safer than attacking by strong weapons like: kicking shoving and slapping.So to find decreasing amount of crime, the government should bring really hard consequence so people understand and think what they'll face by attempting something before they try it.
