BBC The Truth About Crime

I liked this programme, basically it's inextricable proof that majority of violent crime is linked to drink. Showing all the increased violent crime in its location to licensed premises.


The sample in this case was Oxford showing that Oxford City Centre and Cowley Road are the hotspots, but Cowley Road virtually had no CCTV so prosecutions for violent crime there was pretty much nil.

Unfortunately they did not go far enough to criticise the binge drinking culture which makes the UK look like an alcoholic thug compared to the European average but it was touched on by one of the drink industry trio but he said it would take an entire generation for the UK to basically grow up after alot of campaigning.

Does make you understand why US introduced Prohibition all those years ago.

But then, why does continental Europe not have this bloody problem?
The problem is British Culture not the alcohol.

Cowley road has plenty of CCTV, and has bad crime because it's a mainly black and Asian area (statistics have proved minority groups commit more crime so not racist comment) as they have been marginalised

According to the programme three new ones were put up, Gov/Council run, maybe more by now?

Any marginalised group that doesn't properly naturalise and integrate won't really take pride in their community or area or even their houses, although this does vary, Cowley Road though has alot of restaurants, bars and pubs all serving alcohol, and that pattern is repeated which results in violent crime, normally 18-30year old men who seem to think they can do as they please just because a few drinks have lowered their inhibitions.Why are young British Men sooooooooo insecure that they need to get violent every Saturday night? Ask yourself that

The problem is culture of over drinking, culture of no respect for the community, culture of frankly that Friday and especially Saturday night = right to do as they please.

The nurse at John Radcliff Hospital said basically 9pm-3am A&E is 90% alcohol related.
And considering the Asian Islamic sober a judge community that I know is near Cowley Road, it's kind of amusing that is even mentioned on this thread when it wasn't on the programme.
