and they will all get a slap on the wrist as usual. when are we gonna start seeing some actual consequences or are we gonna keep on letting them know they can get away with this stuff

Community service for those little ?’s.
When not at school and when usually enjoying free time (bashing and robbing other kids) then Every hr of every day for a good 2months at least should be spend working their ass off. Not done all together either but with others they don’t know and under a very watchful eye.
Back braking, physically demanding and mentally mundane jobs.
Not money (obviously), show them how it feels to work their b***s off only to end up with nothing. Plus give them a taste of reality.

Hell, if my son did that, I’d probably get reported by an unknowing neighbor for child slaverly .
