It's Time for Crime

The crime poll. Some serious questions here, and it'll be interesting to see what people say.

Poll #1118388 Crime Poll

All statistics aside, I believe that serious/violent crime is

on the rise
7(58.3%)
neither rising nor declining
5(41.7%)
on the decline.
0(0.0%)

I believe that serious/violent criminals are

getting older.
0(0.0%)
about the same age as they've always been.
5(41.7%)
getting younger.
7(58.3%)

I believe that perpetrators of violent crime are treated

too harshly.

about right.
5(41.7%)
not harshly enough.

coddled by the system.

treated fairly.

not given enough understanding.

Tough gun-control legislation

only punishes legitimate gun-owners and does nothing to stop law-breakers.
4(33.3%)
may or may not be effective, I really don't know.
6(50.0%)
is a very good idea and needs to be implemented.

incarceration facilities which are a miserable place to live.

more education programs.

a feminine problem.
0(0.0%)
gender-neutral.
9(75.0%)

Trees in the middle of sidewalks are

very pretty and lovely and all that, and I don't care how many blind people bump into them.
1(8.3%)
very pretty and lovely and all that, but it's a shame so many blind people bump into them.
4(33.3%)
a dumb idea because so many blind people bump into them.
5(41.7%)
a dumb idea, but this fact has nothing to do with all those blind people bumping into them.
2(16.7%)
a dumb idea, and I wish more blind people would bump into them so they'd get knocked down and removed.
0(0.0%)
