I hereby challenge anyone to a debate on this topical issue presently rocking the UK at the moment. The level of crimes perpetrated by teenagers have risen drastically in the last 6 years with atleast a stabbed to death victim once in 2 weeks and the heinous crime committed by an under-age. Teenagers engage in yobbish behavioural attitudes and ASBOs used as deterrent measures are not working again. They engage in binge drinking and drink fuelled behaviours sky-rocket into full blown gang wars. They mug at random and for the flimsiest of effects(Mobile Phones), they stab with any object in sight.............even with a bottle, screw-driver and pencils (Damilola Taylor) Adults who tried correcting them are kicked to death(Gary Newlove) and siblings who engage them trying to save their relatives are fatally stabbed( Rob Knox) They settle street related boyish fights with skulls blasted with short guns!! The Metropolitan Police are confused and the earlier they get their acts together the better! The Way out! My argument on this discourse will be based on the following: 1. What are the root causes? 2. Who are to be blamed? 3. Whats the social angle to this crimes committed by these children? 4. Is capital punishment the way out? I am of the opinion that the UK prison system has lost its steam.(If a teenager is found guilty of stabbing to death of another teenager, the former should be lethally injected and/or gassed to death or even killed by a firing squad!! 5. The whole Police network should be revamped. 6. Teenagers should begin to take responsibility for their negative acts!! Eagerly awaiting the opposition pls!
