Why are knife crimes increasing ?


There are many different reasons why knife crime is increasing but here are my facts that I have discovered. Having read articles more crime is being committed as there are no youth clubs or places for young people to meet, due to governmet funding cuts. There are less and less police officers to prevent knife crimes due to funding cuts . There has been a massive increace on how many people use social media .This could mean , if two people are arguing and its being recorded they wouldn't back down and the fight may become more violent due to peer pressure .Many people use the internet which may lead to more stabbings as people find it harder to back down from a fight because it may end up on social media .

Can you discover any more facts?
