I am not a dogooder and dont suffer from leftwingism either
I just cant see your hard measure's ever being implimented.
Hard labour, corpral punishment and conscription is never going to happen, they wont even let school's discipline the kids.
I dont know whats wrong with teenagers these days, about ten years ago I remember having a conversation about this, we came to the conclusion that there would be a change in childrens attitude as parents would surely want their children to turn out more disciplined than the teens runing riot at the time.
Well there has been a change. They got worse.
So if you find the idea of giving them something more constructive to do,goes against the grain, I'm sorry, I just cant see a legal alternative.
Oh and just as an example:
Youth bike has been running for about a decade now and if anybody has been they would have seen some teens with problems, knuckle down and do something constructive.
We'll never change all of them but if by spending a little more on youth clubs etc we took 70% off the street, our streets would be a safer place for everybody.
