What do you do to babies that have been brought into the world illegally, assuming you're new rule is taken on board
There is a clear link between bad parenting and bad behaviour. Our prisons are full of such stories, it doesn't have to be exclusive to have a strong link.
Unfortunately limiting who can breed is a total and utter non starter on so many levels.
Three strike system like in the states. Strike one... fine. Strike 2 bigger fine. Strike 3... back to whence you came.

I know, was being facetious.
I agree with you
Well I disagree both of you
I think giving that message out is like a subliminal message diverting attention away from the crime/criminal and into the victim. I'm not saying that's the intention it's the result.
It's like saying a women got raped because she wore a dress which covered exceptionally little so should think about how she dresses in future or a person's car was vandalised because they upset somebody and they should think about what they say more or where they park in future.
Robbery is little different unless we are talking about starving people robbing food for survival, which we are clearly not. It should not be up to the individual victim to prevent the crime it should be up to the group (everyone) to prevent the crime by making these actions unacceptable and carry heavy consequences.
While people are looking after the criminal indirectly as I've just pointed out or directly as per OP, society will just carry on deteriorating

Don't disagree with that either, it's just that it is made a bit easy for them because so many people seem to constantly be on their mobiles now.
I get the analogies that you point out but this is literally like walking along holding a bunch of notes in front of you whilst paying absolutely no attention to what's going on or who is around, in an ideal world it shouldn't be a problem but due to the amount of lowlife scum around it is.
So no to an amnesty but please people, use your brains and don't offer your phones up on a plate.
