Do we know What violent crime is?


Do you know what violent crime is? Violent crime is a crime when you physically hurt someone.Thats what you would normally think.Violent crime is not just when you hurt someone it could be threataning to hurt someone or to hurt ther family.Normally all of the threatening happens online because with people online you can’t see there faces so it’s harder to find the person who threatens you.

The most recent Violent crime in England was in London.But do not worry because violent crime in the UK has been decreasing since 1995.It has decreased from 20% to under 15%.Stabbing wounds have also decreased in England by 13% and in London 17%.In 2018 39 teenagers and children in the UK where killed by knive.The worst part is that more than half of that was in Londen the capital.

You can think of any type of crime but in nearly every type of crime the victim will always get hurt.Whether the target gets emotionaly hurt or physically hurt they are still hurt

    Hi resourceful_drawing,

    I've given this post a star because you've shown curiosity in your research and reasoning when you explain that this is a more serious problem in London, but overall some crimes have decreased.

    Where did you find your facts?

    It's good to ask BNC members some questions at the end of your posts to get the conversation going. For example, I'm interested to know if BNC members see online threats as violent crime?

      My Opinion
      I would say that I would unsure of online threat being a violent crime. This is because threatening people lets say with a knife or other weapons may be violent crime but threatening some one without knowing their face makes me feel unsure about this fitting in with violent crime. But if you can threaten some one by words and it's violent crime then maybe online threatens may also be violent crime.

      My research on this particular question results in...
      It is not necessary to prove that the behavior was so violent as to cause mean terror or that the victim was actually frightened. Criminal threatening or threatening behavior is the crime of putting some one in fear of body injury delibretly. So these words, specially the sentence kind of proves that behavior threatening( which can also be threatened by words) is crime however is it violent crime.

        Well done for answering my question. Don't forget to put your research in quotation marks and add a link.

        If someone is threatening violence online then this could make someone scared. One problem we have now is that people can leave anonymous messages on sites such as twitter.
