"Something that we should all be able to do safely but are unable to because of the terrible scourge of crime and senseless violence citizens are experiencing.  How many more lives need to be lost before government wakes up to the fact that we need more visible policing more resources and stricter penalties for those who indulge in crime. We are not a safe society but a fearful one - living in the fear that one of us will become a crime statistic today or tomorrow," he said.
