    Hanging is too good for them. This ia why our insurance premiums are high apart from the inconvenience it causes

    It was bad enough without that. For once *I* was speechless.

    It ties in with the discussion on educating kids we've just had. I can well believe you would not want your kids in the same school that these b*****ds attended occasionally.

    I know Shirley will say "you sound just like your Dad!" and some will say two wrongs dont make a right, but , rather than a slap on the wrist or a holiday abroad somewhere their punishment should be that their names and addresses are given to their victims......

    Mild mannered, laid back Colpot!

    Bring back the stocks in the town centres :thumb:

    Then line em up pelt them with rotting fruit and thrash the living daylights out of the soles of their feet with a cane. The courts could even charge the public for "Dishing out swift justice" :thumb: Bet they would make a fortune :Rofl1:

    Sorry it's not going to happen. There are many good youths who play a full part in their community helping with scouts, guides, football leagues, plays, music concerts etc. taking the D of E awards.
    But there is also a troublesome minority . The problem is there is no deterrent for the youths who mis-behave. Amongst certain groups of youngsters there is little respect for other people' s property and little fear for the consequences of their bad behaviour. Instead too much time has been spent empathising with their problems by mis -guided do gooders. I spent 30 years as a secondary school teacher and taught in very rough schools in three areas of Merseyside including Huyton, and near London. Where the head and staff enforced strict discipline, the schools got on with doing their job of teaching and the result was good.
    Today we have removed power from the people who should be setting boundaries, parents, teachers and policemen. In my last years of teaching, children would say to some colleagues " I know my rights you can't do anything to me." In the past, I tackled children misbehaving in the street, but with knife crime I would hesitate today.
