If you're naughty, you'll get caught

With so much gun and knife crime on our streets, don't the kids involved read the papers? When setting out on a targetted attack, don't they think 'Hang on, everybody will know it's me'?

Example locally: youth shot in the early hours of Sunday. Sunday lunch, 2 arrested. Monday, 1 charged.

If your smart and sensible, don't get involved with anybody (nutters), who think they are above the law.

Most criminals who set out to commit a crime whatever sort of crime that may be dont expect to get caught. Thats way they are criminals in the first place.

"don't the kids involved read the papers?"

I doubt it, possibly because they are to busy on some 'social' networking site, making fingers like guns, and gesturing or acting like a gansta?.

Surprising how many have been caught out, through that way. But I suppose it makes life a lot easier for the authorities!.

I suspect not. No.

The METRO is free on buses. Why can't 'big pupil' schools get it too?

...the mobile phone adverts, and pop revues in the METRO will be a common talking point. I am being optimistic.

"don't they think 'Hang on, everybody will know it's me'"?

Obviously not. The fact is, nobody sets out to commit a criminal act thinking 'I'm bound to be caught'. Criminals believe they'll get away with it, and of course much of the time they're right.

No, as most of them probably can't read.
