    Also, notoriety is glorified in this country - Corey Worthington for instance.

    I absolutely hate it when DP is working Friday or Saturday nights. I get so worried, especially because of the area she works in.
    I agree with this.

    Extended hours for alcohol sales as well as lax attitudes towards the "shutting out" laws must be considered a major factor in all the increased violence.

    Unfortunately, society is driven by the mighty $$ and alcohol is a huge money maker.

    I think it's seval things, and perception is part of this

    I don't think the violence has in increased as much as instant media has increased its reporting of violence.

    I think kids are brought up expecting rights without understand responsibilities and respect.

    I think drugs are becoming harder and more available.

    I also think violence is happening earlier in the night than usual so there are more people around.

    Part of this is due to increased drinking at home before going out.

    You ask any elderly person. They will tell you violence has increased. People just dont have respect for others. Ive noticed the increase myself...esp over the last few years. Not just this type of crime but aggressive violence in general.

    I have my own beliefs on why this is happening, it was predicted a long time ago but wont go into that as it will take it off topic.

    Of course there are other reasons as already mentioned in this thread but they are not the main reason imo

    I'd be interested to hear your theory.

    From memory, ShanandBoc is a JW (I think, I am so sorry if i have that wrong!). Many religions have end of days predictions which include increased violence as one of the signs the end of coming.

    I don't think it's the age factor (ie "kids have no respect these days) as a lot of the perpetrators are well over the age of 21.

    Society is far more permissible than it used to be and as someone else said, drugs are more freely available but also too more people can afford them now. For example, cocaine was freely available in the 1920s but hardly anyone could afford it. There were gangs too..and some terrible crimes...but Police just blew them away. They can't do that now. Well, they can but not without a Royal Commission. haha.

    I do not think pub opening hours are a factor. I lived in London for 4 years, where pubs shut at 11pm, and they have the same problems there.

    I think RSA and Australia's attitude to alcohol plays a part!
