Everyone check the online stats for how many of these little criminals were flushed out by the riots. That is, how many of them were arrested and charged, who would otherwise have not been intercepted by the criminal system?
See? Beefs up the police and gives the kiddies form for life. Because that is how long they will be known for what they've done or at least been part of. Life. Arrest record. Charge record. Sentencing?
Britain is not the place to be underage and have a criminal record. Not the way its going. Teenagers? A rosy future of well-paid jobs? I think not.
Dwell on that friends. We just saw British Idiots Flush-Out Week. (BIFOW, as with bifow!, there goes your future...)
Glad you are okay Ms. N.G.. We were down Ealing way only a few weeks ago. Nice place, usually.
