Comment on Conservative Policies : Conservative Crime and Justice Policy by justathought.

“We cannot tackle crime unless we also address the causes of crime, such as family breakdown, drug abuse and binge drinking.”

i found it interesting reading this quote that within this list of causes, there is no mention of the economic decline that has recently hit the country. (regardless of whether or not we are recovering from it) there is undoubtedly a correlation, and it could even be argued that it is a active factor in the aforementioned list, which are very good examples of the social and self-destructive patterns people adopt as a result of depression – both mental and economical.
