Statistics show that harsher penalties don’t actually deter crime. (Most offenders believe they will "get away with it" so the penalties are irrelevant...) What has to happen is a change in mindset. We need to stop the culture of "bashing" that many of our youth are subject to, and replace it with the ability to listen and to talk. Anger CAN be managed, and the consequential violence can be diminished or eradicated. It will take a long time, but the place where it starts is with schools, families, and whanau.

Sad.

everyday there is either a murder, a stabbing, a fight or someone trying to injure someone else in new zealand..how about the penalties for these crimes be taken seriously and punish the offenders harshly...forget about the comfort of prisons and make it hard so these people dont reoffend....people need to feel safe and this is not happening....
