Which types of crimes are considered the worst? Why?
If you were the Minister of Justice, what actions would you take to make people feel safer?
What sentences should be given for serious crimes?
Nowadays our life isn’t safe. It seems that neither police, nor government can guarantee safety. Statistics shows that violent crimes at present have increased. So no one can live in peace and feel safe even in his own home.
There are some of usually commited crimes in Lithuania such as drug trafficking, killing people, theft, alcoholism. All of this commited crimes mostly repeating actions is stealing of wealth. The light-fingered steals all, from flowers of windows to luxurious cars. Talking about vandalism, vandals usually are youngers. They broke small trees, windows and street’s lamps.
I think that killing people is the worst type of crimes. Because when you kill people, you take out a life, and a big paint of victim familiar.
If I were the Minister of Justice, I would take some actions that people feel more safer. Firstly, the only way to reduce the amount of crime is to give more money to the street lighting, to install closed circuit television, improve security and let more officers on the beat. If we want to protect our property, we must install burglar-alarm to our cars and especially to our homes, or even build in where an armoured doors.
I think that for serious crimes such as murder, should be given sentence in prison till death penalty.
All things considered, crime is very big problem existing all over the world. We must beware criminals. Nobody will protect you, unless yourself.
