By johnboy - 21 October 2008 49

1. 16 year old charged with ram raiding!

    Detectives from ACT Policing’s Territory Investigations Group Property Crime team arrested a juvenile male of Hughes, on multiple charges yesterday (October, 20).

    The 16-year-old alleged offender was arrested in relation to a ram-raid, aggravated burglaries, stolen motor vehicles and police pursuits, after handing himself into police.

    He was charged with ride/drive motor vehicle without consent, unlicensed driving, aggravated burglary and theft. He was bailed from the Regional Watch House at City Station to appear in the ACT Children’s Court on Thursday, October 30, 2008.

And I’m saying that just because they’re treated badly at home is not a compelling reason to treat them worse in detention.

It worked wonders for the convicts sent here….and there were child convicts younger than that little turd.

And just because they “might” be beaten at home doesn’t excuse their behaviour. Many child abuse victims are valuable members of society. The difference is they CHOOSE to do “the right thing”, not carry on like a moron.

Some punishment. Being sent to a place with better facilities than where you live so you can hang out with all your mates.

And what’s the worst that can happen if you stuff around, disobey all the rules while you are there and treat all the staff like shit?

You get sent to bed early.

We have been through this before on this forum. Quamby was seen a bit of a holiday by most of these kids, some would actively seek to go there.

This place is not seen a “bit” of holiday, it is seen a great holiday camp, and there is NO insentive to not commit crimes. After all, you only get caught for one out of every twenty or so you do. And when you do get caught, well, you just get to go and hang out with your mates for a couple of months.

Wow! Totally worthy of an exclamation!!!!one!!!111!

I’m just disappointed the AFP release didn’t have it.

The imperative to keep out of detention is that you lose all your personal freedom. I, for one, value my personal freedom far above any number of swimming pools, heated or otherwise, and I would be extraordinarily surprised and disappointed if any other readers did not.

Not exactly a very dounting

I meant “Not exactly a very daunting”…

Anyway, do you really suggest that we should be evaluating each convict’s home life and then adjusting their prison conditions to make sure they’re worse? Many of these kids probably get beaten at home – should we ensure that they get worse beatings in detention? If 3 meals a day is too many, how many is appropriate, in your opinion?

Yes Caf, that’s exactly what I was suggesting. Great idea, have them all beaten while in there to make it worse than their home life. Good grief, where did you pull that distorted view from!?

I am SIMPLY saying that these little pricks are getting put into a pretty sweet environment. Where is the carrot to stay away?! Not exactly a very dounting or unappealing punishment – again, IMO.

What I would suggest is punishment = an unpleasant experience, not fun “holiday camp” facilities.

If you honestly think I was suggesting to conduct detention by way of beatings etc, then you really do need your head read. Wake up to yourself!

You didn’t answer the question.

…and a indoor heated swimming pool, tv lounge, and 3 (probably much better than usual) meals a day.

These little turds are being put in a facility that provide way more “fun” and top quality services than they would get at home. Not really a deterrent IMHO.

maybe they should chuck all the homeless people who have to live in cardboard boxes in civic into there at the same time…

you would be wanting to get out then.
