Crime problem solved

Crime would be reduced if only ne'er-do-wells burned off some of that excess energy through exercise:

Western Australia's Chief Justice Wayne Martin has urged people to exercise regularly and stay fit, claiming a healthy lifestyle could reduce crime.

The 57-year-old judge, who runs or walks for an hour most mornings, said yesterday if people started running, they would be less likely to get into mischief.

As if those who take drugs, drink huge quantities of alcohol, carouse at all hours and are incapable of managing their personal finances are going to be at all concerned with their fitness. And if the crims did follow Martin's advice we'd simply end up with fitter, more capable criminals; lots of those who prey on others are very much into a lifestyle based on preying on the weak.

I'd go running, but I'm afraid of getting stabbed.
