Mr. Bunny, you are deliberately changing the level of deviance to make a point.
Now, let me see what you are trying to argue? That because they are stealing they are not trying to get out of the position they are in? Have you ever
lived in one of these areas?
I used to live in Wolverhampton, in one of the worst areas where the average person is a drug addict. I know someone, who lives there now and works
over 60hrs a week. They can’t go to College, they can’t finish their education and they can barely afford to live. The house I live in now, is a
two bedroom house in an area classed as “poverty stricken” - it’s not as bad as where I used to live. But for this place, in an area classed as
that I have to pay £700 a month rent, with bills, utilities, etc, I am well over £1000 a month.
If I didn’t have people supporting me, I would stand no chance of getting out of the situation these people live in the problem is they do not have
this opportunities. I was lucky, always have been - a lot of my friends are well off, and were able to support me and still do. Those who do not have
this? They are screwed.
I know people, who wish they could work and get enough off of the welfare system so they could eat but they can’t. They can’t go through education
as well as work, so there is no chance of them improving their situation. They are trapped and it falls to those of us who are not, to help them out
and to help remove these crimes of need. I work in the criminal justice field now, I meant even more people now who are mothers of 3 whose husband
left them and the CSA do not get money from him they wish they didn’t have to steal but they do.
So while we waste billions on military spending, we allow the other sectors to go to hell and allow crime to spiral up and increase.
