KATHY Sweeney started this petition to The UK Government

We have seen a shocking rise in violent crime, especially amongst our young people. The number of gang and knife related crimes has risen at an alarming rate. This needs to be urgently addressed.

I propose that stop and search is reintroduced and those found to be carrying any sort of weapon are prosecuted and given a minimum of 5 years custodial sentence.

I further propose that anyone found guilty of murder receive a sentence of one year for every year of life they have taken away, working in an average life of 80 years, so if you murder a 16 year old you will receive a sentence of 64 years, to be served in full, no remission. After all the victim doesn't get any remission. Minimum sentence should be 25 years to protect the elderly.

We need to protect our young people form the gangs and their influences, the only way to do this is to make gang membership very unattractive, so membership of a gang also needs punishment, perhaps 5 years of community service.
