Is it me or are there an extraordinary number of robberies going on in the area?

Is this normal and they just haven't been widely reported?

Or has there been a massive increase in the numbers of such crimes?

I should imagine it's to do with more and more people in this country being impoverished and getting more desperate to feed themselves OR it could be that there are less and less police around to solve these crimes.

Or is it, that it pays to be a criminal in this country, blaming it on all and sundry and not getting punished for it, now they are shutting prison's, I say BUILD more, lock em up IF they are caught.

I agree with this but prison is not the deterrent it should be and is not necessarily feared.

Two fingers to Brussels and away with computers/games consoles/TV’s in the cell.

Want entertainment? Read a book. Study. Learn something and use your time. If you don't want to, then fine look at the four walls or do a jigsaw.

Want money for treats such as a pudding with your meal? Work for it and pay for it.

You don't have to beat them or abuse them just take away the luxuries and keep it to basics.
