In some parts of Dublin now, people inform me, you can have a Person Killed for a Thousand Euros or less, Scary. These are worrying times; we do not know what lies ahead if there is social unrest resulting from the impact of over 12 months of COVID-19 and lockdowns. Will this Pandemic redress Inequality? Hopefully so.

Young criminals drive cost of contract killing to cheapest ever

Organised crime related contract killings are now cheaper than ever in the European Union (EU), a new European report on crime noted.© Provided by Extra.ie

Europol’s ‘The use of violence by organised crime groups’ report notes that while the cost of contract killings varies, the price is cheaper than ever before.

It notes that the cost of these contracts to kill is being pushed down by younger members of organised crime groups who are trying to make a name for themselves.Organised crime related contract killings are now cheaper than ever in the European Union (EU), a new European report on crime noted.

The report says that violence is often used to intimidate members of rival gangs, while violence often spills out toward family members of those gang members.

When intimidation doesn’t have the desired effect, criminal gangs move onto killing, although this is often a last resort so as to avoid attention from police forces.

A section of the report reads: ‘Within this context, it is worth noting that violence is increasingly being marketed as a commodity by certain organised crime groups.a close up of a hand: Europol’s ‘The use of violence by organised crime groups’ report notes that while the cost of contract killings varies, the price is cheaper than ever before.

‘While murders are often executed by organised crime group members themselves, the violence can also be outsourced. Contract killings are primarily executed in return for cash.

While figures reported to Europol vary between €10 000 and €100,000, some Member States have noted that a hit currently costs much less than it did in the past, as a larger number of inexperienced and younger criminals are willing and available to carry out this type of crime.’

The report goes on to note: ‘Even long-standing relationships and family ties do not preclude one from becoming a target.’a close up of a person holding a camera: It notes that the cost of these contracts to kill is being pushed down by younger members of organised crime groups who are trying to make a name for themselves.

The wider scope of the report looks into how violence seen in the EU is often linked to important transit points and is spilling out of major transportation hubs and onto the streets of surrounding cities, where competition for drug distribution takes place.

It also looks at how victims of violent crimes may be victims of trafficking in human beings, violent robberies, kidnappings for ransom or smuggled migrants.a close up of a hand: The wider scope of the report looks into how violence seen in the EU is often linked to important transit points and is spilling out of major transportation hubs and onto the streets of surrounding cities, where competition for drug distribution takes place.

The report says: ‘Recent cases suggest there has been a rise in the number of violent incidents associated with serious and organised crime over the last few years, as well as an increase in the impact and visibility they have had.

‘Recent cases in Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Spain, as well as gang wars in Sweden (among others) have also pointed to an increasing willingness by organised crime groups to employ deadly violence in pursuit of their criminal objectives.’

Fred with a conscience muses: COVID-19 is a pandemic and global. The question comes to mind if those who are wealthy, have they been humbled? The next question is about the Gangsters who traverse the world and live in places like Dubai, have they been cushioned ? Maybe we have to ensure that Captains of the Criminal World are imprisoned to see if they can learn what a conscience is and grasp the effects of what they create when they source drugs from South America and engage in all kinds of criminal activities but worst of all they provide illegal drugs to destroy the lives of those most vulnerable who often are recruited as young as 11 years old. Tonight is Panorama on BBC 1. It is about Ireland and the Kinihan Cartel/Cabal who are ranked at the top of the global network of gangsters.

We who are not engaged in the world of Gangster activities (let us add those elites who buy the illegal drugs like cocaine which feeds the world of crime), have time now because COVID-19 has removed all the comforts of that other life we had . Let us learn and encourage all people to think about having a duty of care to their society to become aware of what is perpetrated by criminals and the human cost within our society at a local level and beyond.
