A forty percent increase in the level of violent crime over the last twenty years. Prison overcrowding accompanied by an increase in the length of sentence. Fatal stabbings of young people on the street. Alcohol sales to underage youths.
Concerns covered in detail in this blog and Bystander's. And still I'm reading about it all in the daily press.
Except right now I'm in New Zealand. Wonder what I'll encounter next week when I reach Australia?
