Part 3 Speaking: Crime

Ans: Every major city in the world is infested with crime nowadays. No matter how good the police are or how tough the law and order situation is there are always a few people who are looking for trouble or trying to get you into trouble. I put up in London and even though it is very difficult to get away with crime in the city but still you don’t have C.C.T.V cameras everywhere in the city. Stabbing and robbery are some of the most common crimes committed in the area where I live. It is not safe to go out in the dark all by yourself as it can be very dangerous.
Q2: What do you think makes people commit serious crimes?
Ans: There are numerous reasons why people commit crime. Criminals have different mindsets and obviously necessities are different too. Some people commit crime to make some quick money as they are struggling to make enough money from their day jobs. There are people who are born into families of criminals so it comes quite natural to them. To these people committing crime is not a wrong thing but a way of living. There are professional criminals too who set out a particular target and work on it for months and in some cases even years. These professionals are a part of the society and it is very difficult for the police to distinguish them from a law abiding citizen.
Q3: Do you think that some form of entertainment, such as video games, promote violence?
Ans: Well they do, video games are violent and they take us into the world that does not exist in real. There are all sorts of video games for different age groups but the ones that promote violence are specifically rated 18+. There is this one video game called grand theft auto where you are set on missions to kill other people, steal cars and are involved in fights with the cops. If this game gets in the hands of kids it will encourage them to get violent and try these actions in real life. Even though video games are a form of entertainment but I strongly believe they should come with a warning and the violence in them should be significantly reduced.
Q4: Do people who break law in your country receive the correct punishment?
Ans: The laws are made as such that any act that is illegal according to the constitution of our country is punishable in its own accord. Some of the most common offences are traffic related incidents and often involve people not wearing seat belts or helmets. In a country like ours it is very difficult to maintain law and order to the maximum and there are repeat offenders who get away with crimes on many occasions. The more influential person you are the easier it is for one to get away with crimes in my country so at times people who break the law receive the correct punishment and sometimes the lawyer and their contacts are able to influence the judiciary and justice is not delivered.
Q5: Is the death penalty ever acceptable?
Ans: Yes it is and I believe that in a country like ours where humanity shames itself every new day that we punish those who commit heinous crimes and send the right message across to offenders who want to go down the same path. I am not very proud of this but rape is a very serious problem in Nepal nowadays. It’s not only the crimes but at times the manner in which these gruesome acts are committed that they send chills down my spine. There is no other option but to execute these people as they are a burden on our society and a blot on our system. If these people are able to breathe the same air as a law abiding citizen of this country then it’s a mockery of law and order in our country. Moreover, offenders of such crime is the symbol of death of humanity in them and I believe that we should help those people who want to die by death penalty.
Q6: Are there any alternatives to putting someone in jail?
Ans: There are many alternatives that government should have apart from jail to help people who commit crimes. Firstly it depends upon the kind of crime one commits and if is something serious then they should be put in jail straightaway and let law take its own course. There are some people who commit petty crimes out of necessity and they should be referred to different programs and be mentored to become a better individual. Traffic offences are something that majorly goes unpunished so I’d like a program where those who commit traffic violations are punished with some sort of community service and are made accountable for their actions.
