Is it getting out of hand? Whenever you turn on the news someone's been killed the night before. There's a big spotlight on it at the moment, particularly in the media. Is it really worse now than it was 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago? If so, what's causing it, and how can we reduce it? I've listened a couple of times to Akala, a highly intelligent bloke imo who speaks a lot of sense on this.
