Speaking Part 2 – Crime
Q1: What sorts of crimes are common where you live?
Ans: Every major city in the world is infested with crime nowadays. No matter how good the police are or how tough the law and order situation is there are always a few people who are looking for trouble or trying to get you into trouble. I put up in London and even though it is very difficult to get away with crime in the city but still you don’t have C.C.T.V cameras everywhere in the city. Stabbing and robbery are some of the most common crimes committed in the area where I live. It is not safe to go out in the dark all by yourself as it can be very dangerous.
Q2: What do you think makes people commit serious crimes?
Ans: There are numerous reasons why people commit crime. Criminals have different mindsets and obviously necessities are different too. Some people commit crime to make some quick money as they are struggling to make enough money from their day jobs. There are people who are born into families of criminals so it comes quite natural to them. To these people committing crime is not a wrong thing but a way of living. There are professional criminals too who set out a particular target and work on it for months and in some cases even years. These professionals are a part of the society and it is very difficult for the police to distinguish them from a law abiding citizen.
Q3: Do you think that some form of entertainment, such as video games, promote violence?
Ans: Well they do, video games are violent and they take us into the world that does not exist in real. There are all sorts of video games for different age groups but the ones that promote violence are specifically rated 18+. There is this one video game called grand theft auto where you are set on missions to kill other people, steal cars and are involved in fights with the cops. If this game gets in the hands of kids it will encourage them to get violent and try these actions in real life. Even though video games are a form of entertainment but I strongly believe they should come with a warning and the violence in them should be significantly reduced.
