People still run around commiting heinous crimes such as the paedophiles mentioned in discussions below, and there is no preventing that either. We spend a lot of money chasing these people down, charging them with crimes, going through lengthy court cases, paying for them to stay in jail etc. It's a lot of hassle, so why don't we just legalize paedophilia too????
Is everyone too lazy to realise that crime prevention is always going to be difficult, and costly. It doesn't therefore follow that we shouldn;t make things illegal. If convenience is your only criteria for enforcing law, why bother enforcing any laws at all.
