Crime has many consequences

Post by Admin on Sat Mar 15, 2014 6:31 pm

Crime has many consequences, not only for its victims and their relatives and friends, but also for society as a whole. As well, all levels of government devote many resources to provide policing, court, correctional, and victim services (Zhang 2013Zhang 2011). In addition, the level of crime in a community is related to its residents’ level of well-being (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada 2013) and overall health (Pittman et al. 2012). Therefore, the importance of tracking changes in the nature and extent of crime to identify and develop strategies to combat crime is generally recognized (United Nations 2013).
Since 1962, Statistics Canada has been conducting the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Survey, which collects information on all criminal incidents reported to, and substantiated by, Canadian police services.1 The UCR Survey is one of the two main sources of national data on crime, the other being the General Social Survey on victimization, whose next cycle will be in 2014. Together, both surveys provide a relatively complete picture of crime in Canada.
This Juristat article presents findings from the 2012 UCR Survey.2 It explores trends in the volume and severity of police-reported crime at the national, provincial/territorial, and census metropolitan area levels. It also takes a closer look at trends in specific offences, such as homicide, sexual assault and break-ins, and in youth crime.

Those of us who believe that criminals should be held accountable have heard over and over that we ignore the "root causes" of crime.  These causes never turn out to be greed, selfishness, callousness, lack of empathy for victims or stuff like that. Instead they turn out to be racism, militarism, Puritanical neuroses or some subset of the general theory that America stinks.

How are things in Toronto, T.S? I see a lot of street crime, and have had to `bite my tongue', or restrain myself on too many occasions. This is my private citizen self. The law has loopholes, and is weak for cases of threats and baiting, that can lead to aggravated assault, by a good citizen like myself. It brings down the environment here as a whole.People have to be forced to `do the right thing' where it should come automatically. I do not particularly care about the `root cause' when I am in such a situation, trying to save face and protect myself at the same time. Stiffer penalties, of different kinds. Such as: the aggressive party shall pay a fine, some jail time, and community service(under strict supervision) serving the group(s) he/ she dislikes, for openers. that's my two cents,f or now-- good morning!

Committing a crime not only breaks all the rules but the its consequences can follow you for a long time. The legal consequences would include the loss of liberty and being on probation which pretty much excludes you from doing anything. It is bad enough for the person who commits the felony but it would be worst for the criminal's relatives and family members who will be mostly always ostracized by the society.

The focus of rehabilitation that the justice system focuses on is not the best. It is just the brutal fact that in some cases punishment should be the focus. example being that a 18 year old who commits and assault cause he cant control his anger, has a drinking problem, etc could be rehabilitated with no issue. While a older person who murders three people in a robbery and has a background of offences more than likely can not be rehabilitated if it keeps failing. It's then that purpose the focus of justice should be switched to more of a punishment focus. In modern times with the lack of punishment and more on rehabilitation there is a lack of consequence many times for the offender but life long consequences at times for the victim. My thoughts at least
