Knife Crime Essay

Shocked. I am always continuously shocked to hear more teenagers getting murdered because of knife crime. The reason why I am telling you this is because I believe that the juvenile delinquents are getting out of hand and I think someone should make a stop to it. I am a person who believes in justice, peace and discipline but if we introduce these three words to the citizens of the city of London, especially the youths, we may be able to have a decline to the amount of knife crime.

As I read the newspaper every single day, I always see a knife crime article and it always involves youths. I think that in every decade the amount of knife crime increases and I also think that reason why it is increasing is because of youths are surrounded with bad influences. They maybe living in a society where they might get in to peer pressure and in certain times they might get forced into doing something they don’t want to do. Although I reckon that knife crime usually starts with carrying a knife in the beginning and that starts the situation.

Acknowledging the fact that something that youths are carrying knives and the consequences that could lead to something deadly, I am afraid to even to walk on the streets aware that a knife crime could occur anytime. Devastating it is that young people feel that have to carry a knife, which shows that they are feeling unsafe or daunted; this means that they way how youths living in a unsuitable environment. The unfortunate thing is that when a teenager is murdered his or her family would be mournful and devastated.

If I had relations with a person who was murdered from knife crime, I would not be even pleased to hear that someone who I know died from an unfortunate crime. I would be writing a statement which I will prove that knife crime should be stopped. I presume when teenagers carry its maybe because of the people who are around them could be their influence to carry knives. As a huge amount of teenagers carry knives, could lead to crime and crime could lead to injustice and corruption. If someone had put a stop to everything they should be just and incorruptible, so that the people of city of London would know what they are up against.

I was shocked, surprised and sorry to hear that fifty seven per cent of students have been excluded from school for carrying knives. This shows that this is also affecting teenagers’ education as well and that shows that they are spoiling their own lives’. Youths are the future leaders of the nation but how can youths be the leaders, if their life is taken away or their education is being spoiled. What really makes me curious is that how do they get knives in the first place? I have done some research and I have found out that they purchase a weapon by carelessness from the seller.

This shows that these people who are selling weapons to adolescences don’t even have licence to sell or they don’t care about the teenagers’ welfare. It must very difficult when somebody like your son or daughter has been stabbed; it’s not fair on people that they have to suffer for the rest of their lives. In addition teenagers who have died wouldn’t live throughout their life and they didn’t get a chance to accomplish their plans in their future. The youths who commit a knife crime also ruin their life by living with guilt for the rest of their life and they would have to go to jail which will be big impact to their life.

I am aware that teenagers carry knives because of peer pressure, self defence and to gain respect. This shows that the stab killers have something to fear from as they carry knives because of self defence, they could turn their fear to anger and they could take that anger to their victim. Disarray, discord and disorder are now taking place in the United Kingdom, in the 21st century, in youth lives’. Whenever I hear about injustice occurring in youths’ lives and whenever I look upon the streets the words injustice and corruption cross my mind. We can prevent corruption and make a difference if we put our minds together.

I fully support and respect your opinion, but I will have to voice my opinion – knife crime should not even exist. Do you think that too? The reason why I care so much for putting a stop to knife crime is because I have also been almost a victim to knife crime. This happened when I was walking down the street and I came across a delinquent who was threatening me to give him money or he will stab me. At that time I was frightened and terrified as I knew that my life could get taken away from me and in that point of my life I knew that god intended me to die young.

Then a kind elderly citizen had saw me and the delinquent, he was well aware that the delinquent was doing something mischievous judging from his appearance. Fortunately the elderly yelled at the hooligan as if he was ready to give him a punishment but I believe he had done that only to intimidate him, eventually he ran away. In that point in my life, I felt so much relief and I felt like to owe my gratitude towards the elderly citizen as he saved me from the hooligan and possibly saved my life.

After the episode which occurred, I had realized that I should take my life for granted. The most important thing I realized which was the elderly man who is disciplined stood up to someone like the delinquent easily felt daunted. This shows that people who are well behaved are truly courageous and the people who are dissolute are cowards. I was very lucky that I got out of the situation, however most people don’t have a chance to get out of the same sort of situation and this is why I am intending to putting an end to knife crime once and for all.

I have come to my conclusion and I will explain how knife could be eventually put into an end for once and for all. I will use my facts and information about knife crime to back up the knife crime hypothesise and I am willing to explain about why I had used that sort of information to back up my hypothesises. As you saw I have written against knife crime you may be thinking about the consequences of knife crimes end and that we live in harmony hopefully in the near future.

I understand that you would not solve everything immediately and you need to think about expenses and tactics for the government to prevent knife crime. I believe that if you began preventing of what is happening now our children and their children would have not have to be the victim or either the suspect. I believe that you have the ability to stop knife crime but not just knife crime, everything else which is corrupt and this is the reason why you have been appointed to be prime minister.
