10 Ideas for Reducing Crime

  1. Universal income so the average individual does not have to steal to make ends meet.
  2. Guns are equipped with an empathy chip where the user feels the same pain as the person that the weapon was used on.
  3. Re-vamp the educational system to reduce costs, provide equal opportunity, and include soft skill modules for people to learn empathy and respect.
  4. Ban weapons entirely.
  5. Implement stricter rules on crimes, especially ones that bring bodily and mental harm to others.
  6. Set up a “Crime Island”, similar to The Purge concept where if someone is to break the law, they are only allowed to do it on a separate designated island.
  7. If the law is broken, instead of prison cells, the inmates are given a second chance to live with their families to give back to the community. On the second offense, they are placed in prison cells.
  8. Better family support programs, especially in disadvantaged neighborhoods, that lead to more stable childhoods.
  9. Buddy system after prison so convicts can look after each other.
  10. Big Brother system where a mass law enforcement AI controls areas of the city with drones and turrets that identify criminal activities and execute punishment.

Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
