uh? 11/30/2012 8:47:59 AM Report

When I was 16 and 17 years old my parents would have murdered me if I was out that late....especially on a Tuesday and Wednesday night. Where are the parents?...They should take some of the blame on this. Not only punish the kids, but their parents too.

@uh? This is a different age than you and I grew up in. I know that my parents could tan my ass if I did something bad, and they knew it too. These days, if you spank your child, you go to jail, and the kids know it. The kids are not alright. They are a generation of mindless, lazy flops, who have learned that they dont have to do anything for themselves, cause someone else will. They have a total lack of responsibility.

If I find some kids in my garage, I wont call the police, and I gaurantee you they will never break in to my neighborhood again!

"The young persons were charged with Break and Enter, Trespass by Night and Breach of Probation"

Emphasis on "Breach of Probation".

Seriously, the Young Offenders Act MUST be scrapped. Sure, some kids make stupid mistakes that they later regret, but what happened here is definitely not the case - they're already 'anonymous' jr. career criminals!

This is getting really bad .. these days kids have no respect. In saying that it doesnt apply to all of them. I think if they are doing adult crimes like this, their names should be posted for all to see and maybe they will think twice the next time. I am not that old (almost 30) it bothers me cause i would never had even thought about doing this, my parents would have killed me!

It's time for the laws to be changed. It's one thing to break into a business after hours which is bad enough but when you break into someone's home, it is the ultimate violation.

The law must be changed to clearly say that if you break into a private dwelling, regardless of your age the penalty will be more severe then just about anything else short of murdering or raping someone.

People that have had their homes broken into have lasting trauma in their lives as this feeling of being violated never goes away.

After the courts enact a more severe punishment for private home invasions, the school system must begin to educate and warn the children at an early age the consequences involved if you go down this path.

I know this is not the total solution as the reality is that bad seeds will be bad seeds but perhaps it will somewhat diminish the problem.

All I can say is I was afraid to piss my parents off. I had respect for them and didn't my want my name published. As far as I am concerned the laws need to changed and at the age of 14 a youths name should be published and and you will see a difference on how young people and there parents look at things.

banshee bob has the right idea, I have caught a punk before. I like making them cry when I say I call the cops or the parents but them cops actually show up quick when your neighbors tell them you got some lil bugger face down in the street. I tell them this is my neighborhood and as you can tell with your face in the dirt I don't put up with this crap.... I am young enough to catch them to kick their ass and old enough to pay the legal bills!!

I know you're a Bad Dawg but careful that little punk may shove a blade up your crotch and from then on you'll be known as the spaded Bad Dawg! Be careful man.

Make a citizen's arrest, then call the police. You might get lucky and the punk(s) might happen to trip and bash their face off the curb or sidewalk while you're waiting for the cops to show up. Keep in mind, if you make a citizen's arrest, by law, you are not permitted to release them from custody. Only police have the power to release a person who has been arrested. If they are to be released from custody, they have to be turned over to police first.
