This country is showing a worrying trend of social ills and regressive behaviour of our youths. Rapes, robbery to murder, not a single day without these heinous crimes being reported in the media. Even more alarming the rapists and victims are getting younger. As disgustingly as it can get even babies and toddlers have been raped.
Incestuous rapes, where young girls became victims of their father's lust are becoming the rule rather than the exception.Some have been raped over many years and were not reported due to fear of the father's wrath.Some cases were only reported after the girl had become more matured and understand what the father has been doing to her is wrong. Such men have reduced themselves to living in the animal kingdom where sex is instinctively a cause for propagation of the specie.What was reported could just be the tip of the iceberg.
These days how many young men would give up their seats to a lady, the elderly or the handicap? It is becoming a rare commodity.Go on any public buses or trains and see for yourself the appalling behaviour of the younger generation.Incivility and rudeness take front seat where ever you go, from government offices to schools to the cab drivers, you'll get a fair share of discomfiture. Our capital city has one of the worst taxi drivers in the world, rude,intimidating and dishonest.Some are known to have raped their female passengers.
Take the recent report of a poor lady who apparently was in a hurry and jumped queue at a bus stop, manhandled and punched in the face by a man. Instead of just giving her a telling off he resorted to summary judgement and meted out his own brand of justice.
Much of today's younger generation failed in civility and good manners.Good manners had become the exception rather than the rule.
It is the flaw and flavour at home that should carry bigger share of the blame.Parents apathy were major causes of juvenile delinquent and bad upbringing. Some of our schools, the second front after parenting, are as broken as the broken homes the wayward child came from.Apathetic teachers who take no pride in their job.There for the money only.When I went to school teachers were highly respected and looked upon as mentors.
Like many other things in this country the problem starts at the source. Bad drivers come from bad driving schools, bad students come from bad schools and bad teachers come from bad teachers training colleges.
The increase in crime is related to law-enforcement, the lack of which is evident in most areas in this country.Again, apathy contributed to the increase in crime rate.When criminals think they can get away with it they will continue their crime spree.Kuala Lumpur is fast becoming hotbed for criminals and crime capital of the world.
Although, the police can't be omnipresence to combat crime, it is evident they are not giving it their best shot.
