But murder and rape are rather cruel and inhuman, aren't they?

As we speak a policeman has just been murdered in
Berkshire whilst attending a suspected burglary!!
10 people have been arrested!
Seems a lot of burglars for one buburglary?
I think the cops are just rounding up all suspects as a
precaution!
Thats 3 cops seriously hurt or injured in the last couple of
weeks!
Things are allready out of control!
Boris needs to act fast, unfotunately police cannot be recruited
as quickly as they were fired!
One thing that can be done though is reform the prison
system along the lines we have just discussed on this forum
The public must create sufficient outcry to motivate the powers
that be to actually act and not just discuss!

Re: National Service

I think some form of national service might be an idea, where young people are expected to work with people in need of assistance. I don't think the military option is a good idea at all.

I did my national service during the Malayan troubles in the early fifties and many of the regulars I spoke with had little time for us. They seemed to consider us a burden as we knew we only had to keep our heads above water for two years then we were home safe. The same would probably apply to today’s youth if they were conscripted to any kind of assistance work. Most of them would simply put up with it till they could get away leaving the professionals to do the donkey work in the meantime.
