    The best way to get rid of crime is to get rid of the criminals………. permanently! Gallows and/or firing squads are the best crime prevention there is.

      It is our culture that is the cause of this, not Alden or his party. We are the ones that have let the laws render the law-abiding citizen helpless and unable to defend ourselves. We have followed the Mother country (and much of Europe) in not allowing the possession of Capsicum (pepper) spray. Countries in Europe which do allow most citizens to have it? Italy, France, Spain, Austria, Poland; with a license — Switzerland, Germany and Portugal.

      In the days of my parents and their parents, we took care of each other, and while we weren’t so large in population, nearly every able-bodied person worked for their livelihood — many men going to sea while their wives raised the children and ran the house, having a ground to grow food and a clean sea in which they fished, gathered whelks. People worked together and were intolerant of thieves and other criminals.

      We are allowing a lazy culture, where some people have learned that the government systems will take care of their basic needs without their having to put forth any effort of their own. Those systems are necessary for those who truly cannot care for themselves, however they are being exploited in some cases by those who just don’t care enough to expend any effort toward their own maintenance.

      After Ivan, the robberies and burglaries escalated. Criminals learned that there was often no consequence for just taking whatever they wanted.

      The only facet of this which can be laid at the politicians’ doors is our failure to provide education. We desperately need a trade school. Governments do not provide opportunity, but they can stimulate an economy.

      The real cause is us, and our apathy. We talk about these crimes and give a sad shake of the head, lamenting a golden time which we all remember that has passed. It is us. We have to do better, raise our children with better values, be better role models.

      We have to report what we see. I read people here on CNS saying things like, “we all know who did this or that”. WHAT?? Call the police, tell them. Talk with your neighbors, be vigilant. Yes, it is the job of the RCIPS, but guess what their greatest resource is? Us. All of us that ‘know’ things.

        “Our culture” -you are an idiot. Try having mothers teacher their kids morality rather than teach them how to be racists hating violent criminals.

          At 6:08 – and where are the fathers in all this? Why say “try having mothers “?

            if I understand the post above correctly, things worked better when the fathers went off to sea.
