Rising Crime Rates It is hard to say what precise reason can cause the crime rate in the United States to fall but I will attempt to rationalize an answer According to Samuel Walker the author of Sense and Nonsense About Crime none of the above choices cause the crime rate to descend In my opinion none of the choices are soley responsible but in combination with each other some are very effective Walker spends alot of time talking about deterence especially detering the drunk driver in which he claims there is no short term way to deter drunk drivers Walker states Enforcement crack-downs will not deter drunk driving In my opinion this couldnt be further from the truth I think about it this way What would keep me from driving home drunk Besides the moal delema of if I killed someone the only thing stopping me is what would happen if I got caught I have had a first hand experience that lisence suspension would work Ive seen my friends beg for rides to work because the lost their license secondly the increase in insurence rates can also hurt prety bad too I dont know about anyone else but I think about these things before I plan to go out drinking Still on the subject of drunk driving I feel there is an alternative that would work extremely well Zero-tolerance One of the main reasons I feel this would work so well is that most people dont know where the limit is One aspect of crime is means rea a guilty mind How are you going to know when you are commiting the crime of drunk driving when you dont know whether you are legally drunk or not Its like telling someone you can steal but once you steal over a certain amount its wrong and heres the catch you dont know what that certain amount isYes zero tolerance seems harsher
