Individual,

So you think that the current government who has the capacity
to enact appropriate legislation
are a bunch of Leftist academic bureaucrats?
Really?

Indy blindness is not an asset, this thread came about because it is in the news moves are being made to raise the age to 16
O sung wo will know, some kids are ferrel, eight years olds in country villages smashing car windows and heaps more
ARMcHAIR critic, yes no defense BUT while in the detention center, they may even learn to read and write, many can not
Again we do not have to live in the past lock them up make sure they get every chance to learn,even get them if old enough a job
But look at one of a thousand such stories in the one I highlighted
9 year old kid holding a community in fear, can not touch him and he has a very long list of offenses.
INDIVIDUAL if as you claim constantly every problem is born in the left why do they continue to win elections? EG Victorian election and south African gangs, reality must be considered

To me the problem is accountability, if you go to University and the Gov'T pays you have a debt for life till it is paid off.

Now if a similar scheme was to apply to crimes, any criminal damage a person causes the cost of that damage is now to be repaid even if only at a low rate because the person is on welfare.

If a crime is committed by a group the debt is divided and each has to pay, if for example only part of the group are caught the total cost is divided by the number caught unless they say who the others were.

Simple fact is some people cause hundreds of thousands in criminal damage and the insurance ends up paying or the shop owner if no insurance was taken out. They often end up getting a light sentence.

You do the criminal damage you pay the price no matter how long it takes.

I believe this would make a lot rethink about what they do.

This applies to any age say above 5, they know they are doing something wrong.

Hi Philip,

Yes, I've thought much the same for many years. Some idiot starts a fire (heh ! heh !) and causes a million dollars damage - no problem, simply set all debts against his finances until they're all paid off, plus interest.

In Adelaide, the government is building highways on overpasses to prevent idiots from throwing rocks onto passing traffic - that seems to be a favourite pastime in some parts of Adelaide. So exciting ! Hey, watch that car veer all over the road ! Heh, heh !

But the idiot-criminal class is endlessly inventive - smash a telephone box ? Great fun ! Crap up a bus-stop shelter ? Wow, who thought that up ? Beat up penguins in a sanctuary ? What larks ! Graffiti, for the illiterate ? No, it's art. Well no, it's vandalism.

If any government wanted to DROP the age of criminality by a year or two, I'd serious think about supporting it.

Cheers,

Joe
