Tuggeranong youths brought to heel?

By johnboy - 19 January 2009 22

The Canberra Times reports that arrests have been made against the young Tuggeranites accused of roaming the streets looking for other young people to assault and rob.

    “Three youths were arrested after an incident in Calwell on Friday night when a 16-year-old was allegedly punched repeatedly in the head as attackers tried to take his wallet and phone.

    The result came as police stepped up their campaign to stop a series of violent attacks.”

Fascinating that the CT was taken along for the ride.

What’s Your opinion?

Yeah, because prison rape would certainly rehabilitate them and not increase their tendency towards violence.

Punishment, good, but advocating that sort off thing, not so smart.

Um, this was a warning given recently by a judge to a young offender thus the use of quotation marks. I personally believe that a minimal punishment will be given, if any punishment is given at all.

My views simply reflect the view of the more general public that the courts are too interested in offenders rights that they forget the victems rights.

Oh good grief – not another one watching too much Lockup and Shawshank Redemption! These petty f**kwits are hardly the likes to be doing hard time in with the general population. How many times do we have to go through this.

Do you HONESTLY think dudes doing a couple of years time are going to turn to raping each other. If they were in for life with the general pop, then maybe…and thats a MAYBE.

Small world…small mind! Get out a little more RuffnReady!

I hope the victim gets restitution.

I doubt it though.

AngryHenry 12:50 pm 19 Jan 09

Just a smack on the wrist I’ll bet!

I wish they’d pick on someone who’d pick back… That’s a great way to learn.

They should appoint social workers or case managers to their families, impose curfews and monitor them until they are of legal age then when they make that cruial mistake said appointed worker warned them about they would have no excuse and be punished as an adult to the full extent of the law.

But really I’m just ranting I have no idea how to fix this, the same way adults never knew how to fix my generation.

Although, sometimes a good scare from the cops at the right age will do the trick.

“Or scanning police radio & being quick to react more likely”.

No – the police radio system went digital years ago therbye making the Canberra times hacks get off their fat asses and seek out stories rather than sit around listening to their scanners all day.

I suggest that the Times Jack Waterford-led anti police campaign began around the same time.

Will the kiddies Court drop the ball? Will the victims be told the result and be satisfied?

Lets wait and see…

I somewhat doubt it, I expect they will be told they are very naughty, and don’t do it again.

Good to see these little scum being busted, although sounds like they are just a small part of a wider group. Pity the ACT judicial system will simply give them some milk & cookies & send them home with a (not so) stern warning.
