Whats crime?


All over the world they are crimes every road and every street more then others but what is crime why do we have crime. In the United Kingdom crime we have are stabbings and shoplifting and more.

Whats shoplifing?

Shoplifing is when you enter a shop and you take some items such as a choclate bar, now you are now at the scannings and you have a bunch of supples the price is $5.30 while you are putting everything in your bag you still havent payed for it now you have packed everything you make a run with out paying (i think you shouldn''t try this cause then you will get caught).They are reasons why people do shoplift because they..:

  • Dont have the money
  • Dont want to pay
  • In a rush
  • And much more

In the Uk stabbings are popular in:

  • Cleveland-55
  • Metropolitan Police-47
  • South Yorkshire-38
  • Bedfordshire-38
  • Lancashire-37
  • The numbers are how much times that place had stabbings and heres the link if you want to see more places. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/britains-knife-crime-capital-revealed-5865958

    Hi digital_armadillo,

    Well done for getting going on this issue so quickly and researching articles. We really want to focus on thinking about how the media represents violent crime and how accurate the information we get really is.

    Here are a few things you might want to think about:
    1. The article you've read is from 2015, so figures might be different for more recent years.

    2. The way the article describes knife crime figures is confusing. The article says "new figures show hundreds are being caught carrying blades" which suggests their statistics are for people who are caught carrying a knife. But parts of the article describe crimes where knifes are used in attacks. This might make the reader think the figures given are for knife attacks rather than carrying.

    Why might newspapers intentionally, or unintentionally, make stories seem more scary?
