Headline grabber 2: 31st July 2018

WARNING: not the usual kind of post from me, but the subject matter is enough to make anyone’s blood boil.

When I was a kid, we had gangs, all boys, all girls and a mixture of the two and little wimpy me would cross the road rather than walk on the same side.
Never, EVER, would I have expected this: (link)

This is our youth.
Is this what a lack of discipline or boredom generates?
They are no more than animals, and like a dangerous species of dog, should be put down.
Good for Robin Armstrong for putting it out there.
Good for the father of one of the scum for marching his offending and offensive son into the police station.
Naming and shaming them isn’t enough. It does nothing for the victims, and even less to deter wannabee followers.
Protecting the perpetrator following death threats to the family is a waste of police resources, though I concede it may not be the family at fault.
They don’t belong in society, so move them out.
Bring back National Service, or start a New Corrections Unit purely for putting them on the receiving end of what may be seen as bullying tactics.
If they don’t comply, give ’em the needle as they do in the movies.
Action needs to be seen to be done, and it is up to the authorities not to wimp out.

FYI The film Harry Brown (2009) starring Michael Caine makes harrowing viewing.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    No park wardens, police numbers cut drastically and nothing to keep kids occupied. Skate parks, basketball courts, ice rinks, boot camps anything to give them their own space is what is neeeded. Teenagers have always hung around in groups, opften bored because adults don’t have time to get bored, teenagers do! Most teens aren’t doing atrocious things, but just seeing a group of innocent lads standing outside your local corner shop or on your street corner makes the nervous imagine the worst.

    • These are good suggestions, and could alleviate the anxiety of many. Boredom, especially during the holidays, is common, and there is just nothing for teenagers to do and nowhere to go.

    Horrific and shameful behavior. No one with a soul or conscience would
    even conceive let alone do something like this to a vulnerable human being, or any human being for that matter. They should have the same done to them in public, buck naked, with hundreds of people throwing things at them. Although, most of us wouldn’t engage in that either. My heart aches for the woman. Just despicable.
