Rising violence a case in point

One of Perth’s prominent lawyers has.

‘We don’t respect people anymore,’ Tom Percy QC told his 6PR audience last week after news of a rise in the murder rate.

‘Violence is a bit more of a byword. No one really worries about it, we’re a much more violent society and we tend to not behave ourselves as we did when you and I were growing up,’ he said.

Do you agree with Tom?

Have we become a more violent society?

How would you rate the community’s anger on a scale of one to 10? What number would you give yourself?
