There has been a spike in crime and as a result, a lack in convictions by the Crown Prosecution Service, meaning there are more criminals walking freely than ever. The age old question about capital punishment and its effects on crime have come into question in recent years.

What are your guys thoughts on bringing back the death penalty?

No, it's barbaric, amounting to State sponsored murder. There are also unsafe convictions - try compensating a dead person

What would be your response to the barbarism that is taking place on the streets of the UK as a daily occurrence and people not being deterred by a prison sentence?

Or, you could be less lazy and refer to this recent thread that's still in the top 10 on this subforum and helpfully even comes with a poll; https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6473720

If that was too much effort, you could have searched for any of the 20,000 other threads this place has on the exact same topic.

I'd say "prove it", because statistics says otherwise;

You've made 80 posts in a day. That's more than enough to learn how this place works.

There were 43,516 knife crime offences in the 12 months ending March 2019.

This is an 80% increase from the low-point in the year ending March 2014, when there were 23,945 offences - https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.b...mp/uk-42749089

It’s really not. Posting could be giving advice to people, not exploring the depths of this platform in detail. Also I’m using my iPhone so the layout is different to that of a computer as I have seen. You can’t acclimate yourself to a platform instantaneously and when you don’t be called out for it is just absurd and childish.

You've been talking about all crime, not just knife crime.
Prove that all crime is spiking.

And are you really suggesting that, for example, a mugging conducted with the threat of being stabbed is worthy of death?

I was just supporting my statement with those figures. And obviously crimes have decreased immediately because of the lockdown, most crimes are going unreported because there’s nobody on the streets and because people aren’t leaving their homes. I was referring to prior to lockdown. And I haven’t suggested in any way whatsoever the death penalty should be a result of a mugging. Just because I brought up knife crime doesn’t mean I suggested they should receive the death penalty, clearly the post (from my perspective) was to create an informative discussion and not an adversarial one. I don’t take a stance on this discussion.

Drewski I think a seasoned TSR veteran like you has a lot more better things to do than grill a newby. If not you can resume.

Not all societies have Sharia law. Multiple states in the USA, Japan and China still have the death penalty.

What are crime rates like within the US?
Do deterrents work? Or rather between life in prison and death, which is the greater deterant?

You posted a statement and have yet to prove it, but you're acting like you're above reproach. Why?
