    Default Highest homicide rate of young men in western Europe: Ireland

    The list of lists that Ireland would be better off not heading is lengthening.

    IRELAND has the highest homicide rate of young men in western Europe and the second highest rate of knife killings, according to the World Health Organisation.

    Link to the Report http://www.euro.who.int/__data/asset...314/E94277.pdf

    The report analysed homicide figures among 10 to 29-year-olds between 2004and 2006 (the latest three years available) in 45 European countries, including Russia and its former states, Eastern European and Baltic states.

    Suggestions?

    The WHO says:

    The experience of several countries in the Region shows that public policy and sustained approaches that address the underlying causes of violence can make countries safer. Protective factors can prevent violence from developing among young people. These include good social skills, self-esteem, academic achievement, strong bonds with parents, positive peer groups, good attachment to school, community involvement and access to social support.

    No point He3, there's no votes in it, so they won't lift a finger.

    If druggies wish to eliminate each other then let the stats stay as they are.

    Problem is, there are always more people entering the game so there will never be a last man standing. The potential rewards are just too great, not to mention the glamour protrayed by certain tv shows. Innocents get hurt.

    Pauli, you are right but only up to a point. The government inaction will continue.

    But there are plenty of people - some reading this site - who in their places of work or elsewhere have a role to play, and they deserve to be supported. The suggestions by the WHO are sound and can be implemented despite government at least to a certain degree.

    Sure we'll just explain that to the parents.

    (Of course the stats could be skewed as other countries would, I assume, have higher incidence of gun crime.)

    Edit; my cousin was knifed and nearly killed a few years back and he is certainly not a druggie. Just had the misfortune to look the wrong way at one who was drunk and angry. It may come as a shock to you but the victims of knife attacks are often innocents with nothing to do with drugs and generally just on a night out.
