A recent study proves that increasing prison sentences has a direct effect on crime rates. The higher the prison sentence the less likely the crime will be committed. An example was taken for armed robberies in British Columbia. An indivdual found guilty of armed robbery would serve half the time in prison than an indivdual who committed the same exact crime next door in the province of Alberta. British Columbia's armed robbery stats are nearly double to those of Alberta's. Law enforcement professionals believe that the courts are to blame for the increase of certain crimes, being to soft on criminals & are pushing for tougher sentencing.

It is a known fact that if you fight back you are less likely to become a victim of crime & violence. Let alone keeping your self esteem due to the fact you put up a fight. That is exactly what a woman in Seattle did. A man decided to carjack this woman but instead of her being passive she got aggressive due to the fact that her child was in a car seat in the back. The woman fought back & the attacker decided to go else where to find an easier victim. It just goes to show that if the mission at hand is important enough you will find a way to overcome your attacker no matter what the odds are.
