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?

Explosive collars like those in ‘Running Man’. 10 metres from their homes and BOOM!!!

Yeah it’s all good they’ve heard about it and these people are being charged.
But still bet they only get a slap on the wrist in court, at least it still goes to their record=]

Yes, but as a juvenile offender that record get sealed for the most part at the age of 18. Infact, unless there is more than 30 months of jail time, the spent convictions scheme will ensure that it won’t even stop them going for high security roles within the PS within 5 years.

I would be willing to bet that been arrested and charged will be all the punishment they will receive, at most they will have to do a few hours of community service.
