Need a new government to stand up to these type of kids and send a message by putting them in jail.
No license for 20 years and pay for any damages caused through a Hec’s type repayment plan.
At the moment they are allowed back out into the community the next day.
No more softly softly.
Luckily we have the opportunity in a few weeks time to get rid of the current lot of morons.

Do you really think taking someone’s licence for 20 years is going to stop them commuting crime or create a whole new reason they have to ?

TOTALLY agree.
A majority of ‘naughty kids’ would surely be frightened into a life of ‘better choices’ should our government adopt a mandatory 1 week in jail for first offenders who are involved in the cause of loss and damage to others. A separate, juvenile section, not in mainstream, regardless of being under age, the earlier the better. But sadly, all the do gooder’s and activists will never let that happen.

Fix the typos. Arivla isn’t even a word

Take their licence for 20 years and then they become a burden on the welfare system and live a life of crime. Make the penalty about giving back to society community service for substantial amount of time doing jobs and never being paid take away freedom without causing interruptions to their education and trying to help make better life choices.

In most cases its too late, if only you knew the amount of crimes these have already committed at such a young age and the system keeps letting them get away with it with little recall.
Parent/s don’t care,, system don’t care and current punishment does not work.
Take away some of their basic liberties i.e. future license, welfare amount and make them get a job.
They are already a drain on the welfare any social systems anyway.
