In China with 1.3 billion people with no social security,poverty you are much safer there than here.The answers are there,we just don't have the political will or the guts to tacle the problem.Start with taking on our left leaning legal system.

Arjay ~ How do you figure 'you're' safer in China than here?.

The only way to curb criminal activity is to make it undesirable to do it. Through legislation. People have been arguing for tougher sentencing for decades. Still, the government won't listen.

StG longer sentences does not deter crime! When was the last time you heard someone say they stab a bloke or rob a bank because they would only do 10 years in long bay? They commit crimes with the intention of getting away with it! 1 year or 10 years they donít care because they are under the mind set that they wont get caught!

STG, I know people who regularly visit China and there are real consequences for anti- social behaviour.The same situation exists in Singapore.The Rattan cane would be a real deterrant in our so called civilised society.Violence is out of control in Sydney and our Govts just pander to socialist's weak kneed do gooders.

Our legal system exists under the pretense of protecting society,when in fact they line their own pockets by protecting the criminals.

The leftist soft on crime, soft on discipline, soft on drugs, soft on criminals has led us to the place of the violence we have. They love to quote their dogmas about harsher penalties not preventing crime however they ignore places like Singapore where anyone can feel safe walking the streets. What chance have we got when we drug our kids in order to address behavioural problems and tell them they evolved from monkeys.
