Police, Tasers and City Centre Madness

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 11:51 am

Police in Nottingham have been videoed using a taser stun gun 3 times on a man who was causing a disturbance outside a nightclub on Monday night. The whole incident was videod by a member of the public. Not only was the man stunned twice by Taser, it also shows the Police punch the man on his upper body. This incident has now been passed to The Independent Police Complaints Commission who after watching the video, thinks there may be grounds for further investigation. Truth is, the video fails to show how confrontational the man might have been before the Police took action to taser him.

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 3:06 pm

You don’t have to be a superhero to help fight crime, simple things like just looking out your window at your neighbours home, car or garage or just listening out for any suspicious noises is, in many cases, enough to deter many thieves. There are also other organisations out there to help fight crime, Neighbourhood Watch and Crime Stoppers.

Who Watches The Watchmen

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 11:48 am

In an ever-increasing surveillance society that we live within, being just another face-in-the-crowd is a nigh on impossibility. No matter if you are just popping up the high street for a quick nip in-and-out of the shops, sending an email from your work computer or socialising online with your digital buddies on Twitter or Facebook – there’s a good chance that your digital footprint will be monitored along the way at some point.

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 12:57 pm

Back in 2007 Gallup Europe, the survey people, released the findings of their survey carried out on behalf of the UN crime prevention agency (source). The report puts Britain as one of the worst countries in the European Union, naming us a ‘high crime country’ and London as the ‘crime capital of Europe’. Britain had the highest rate of burglary and nearly top for assaults and hate crime. The survey carried over 18 countries highlights Britain’s crime rate to be way above average.

Crime and the Video Games Debate

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 1:38 pm

A new study released by Texas University shows that there is no direct correlation between those exposed to violent video games and increasing crime statistics. The author of the study, Christopher Ferguson of Texas A&M International University, exposes that violent video games such as ‘Grand Theft Auto’ and their like, do not desensitise the game player and encourage them to go out and commit criminal behaviour. The study, instead comes to the conclusion that ‘moral panic’ sets in after a violent or horrific crime has taken place and video games are seen as an easy target for politicians, media and parents to blame.
