What is crime?
Crime can vary, but the crime I'm going to talk about is knife crime. Crime can also be reported in many different ways such as :
- Social media
- News channels (On television)
But crime itself can just be carrying a knife, this is an offence because police don't know what people will use that knife for. But crime is a thing that go's against the law - an action that is against the law.
Violent crime is where somebody phisically hurts somebody, in the UK it is usually knife crime, but in America it is usually gun crime. According to the police's statistics violent crime has risen from 2003 to 2019. In 2018 4,000 children were arrested for carrying a knife. But apparently, the ONS (Office for National Statistics) surveys are the best way of recording crime.
