This House believes that minor crimes should be pursued with the same vigour as serious crimes

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Serious crimes get more attention are investigated with greater vigour than minor crimes (=small financial crimes, pickpocketing, crimes without the consequence of serious injury). Is that right, is that fair (given that 60% of all the victims are victims of minor crimes)?

Pro

  • Organised crime. Drug dealers are a vital link between drug demand and offer. By imprisoning drug dealers we are effectively undermining these organised groups from the bottom.
  • First step. Minor crimes can be seen as a first step towards serious crimes. One might start as a pickpocketer and end ur robbing a bank, shooting someone on the run. Pursuing minor crimes is a necessary prevention and deterrence for future criminals.
  • Removing the easy opportunity to commit crime. By investigating and impisoning criminals we are sending the message that crime really does not pay.

Pro

  • Minor crimes affect a wider part of society. Minor crimes trouble our society as they are more common, affect more people, have more victims. If we want our legal system to make sense, we should try to punish as many criminals as possible, thus investigate minor crimes with same same vigour as serious crimes.
