Transcript of CRIME TODAY
Media can play a negative impact on certain materials which can influence criminal activities.
Nowadays, the punishment isn't strong enough as it was before; so criminals who get into trouble, aren't really bothered about the consequences.
If the law of Saudi Arabia was enforced in the UK, there WOULD be a significant change in criminality's. This meaning, there will be a major decrease in crime as the punishments will be tough and this would lead to criminals thinking twice before they do something they'll regret. WHY IS THERE CRIME? CRIME A crime occurs when someone breaks the law by something they do openly/discreetly and neglect the consequences that follow on. Burglary, Shoplifting, Squatting and Vandalizing Violent Crime: Murder, threatening to be violent, domestic violence Drug Crime: Selling/buying drugs, Importing/exporting drugs WHAT TYPES OF CRIME ARE THERE? Street Crimes: Criminal offenses committed in public places: Mugging, Vandalism (Graffiti), Trespassing, Anti-Social Behaviour Gang Crime: A group of 3 or more people - this may intimidate the public. Gangs may commit criminal activities such as: Murder, rape, mugging etc. Gangs may also try and grab attention from other rival gangs and this may cause disruption in the neighbourhood. FACTS Robbery is the most common crime in the world The country with the highest amount of crime is the US.
The country with the lowest amount of crime is Burkina Faso. What is the Islamic view on crime? The Islamic law is far more strict than the law in the UK.
For example: If someone is to steal something in an Islamic State like Saudi Arabia, then they will have their right hand cut off and if someone is to murder, they will be beheaded in public.
In the Qur'an:
5:38 "As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah."
This tells us that stealing must be a serious crime if the criminal has to have his hand cut off. And it also must mean that Allah does not let anyone get away with anything bad they do. What is the Christian view on crime?
Punishment in The Old Testament:
In The Bible, Leviticus chapter 24 verses 19 - 20: it says "If anyone injures his neighbour, whatever he has done must be done to him: fracture for fracture, eye for an eye, tooth for tooth. As he has injured, so he is to be injured".
This tells, us that a criminal would have to pay reparations for his crime.
The New Testament says:
"Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power by God."
This teaches us that no one should break the laws which the Government has set and laid. Is there LESS crime today? Because Eduacation is increasing everywhere, and more and more people are given opportunities to learn, our society is becoming civilised. This may be one of the reasons why crime is decreasing.
Another reason is there are Police Community Officers, CCTV operations in areas that have high levels of crime. For the troublesome youth groups, there are centres/youth clubs which they can attend to keep them occupied and out of trouble. WHAT TYPES OF CRIME ARE THERE? Transnational Organized Crimes manifests is many ways, here are a few examples: Smuggling of Illegal drugs in and outside of UK Smuggling of Firearms Human trafficking: Every year 4 million people are trafficked. 50% of all trafficked humans are kids and 80% are females. It is the fastest growing, criminal industry the world has ever known WHY IS THERE CRIME? Remember the riots that began in August in 2011? It all began with the shooting of Mark Duggan, a 29 year old man which lead to riots that broke out in Tottenham and spread in other parts of England. The main reason why the riots happened remains unclear. A student said the Police ignore the youth, a gang member said there just wasn't enough jobs so he decided to go looting. Tottenham has some of the highest levels of unemployment in London. This proves INEQUALITY. Young people especially, feel they are being treated unfairly this may be because of child neglect, lack of opportunities, lack of good role models etc. It is proven that poorer countries/ areas such as Bangladesh or Tottenham, will have high rates of crime because of INEQUALITY Islam and Christianity strongly believe that the believer, no matter how poor he is, will still have faith in God. He will not commit any sort of crime and will abide by the law that is set by the Government. Suffering is part of everyone's life. Religious believers know that God is testing us just to get the best out of us.
