However, there is a large number of teenagers who are quite simply out of control. Their parents generally have no idea what they are getting up to on any given night. They, the teenagers, destroy a lot of things in the public field that many others use just because. They probably have no reason for destroying stuff other than it seemed a good idea at the time.
The police are next to useless these days when things like this happen. They often times ignore whatever it is that has been done. ASBO's are useless draconian things that are often worn as a badge of pride.
We need to engage these disaffected teenagers and bring them back into the fold before they go totally off the rails in later life. Many will not, many will settle into a normal married life and have kids of their own who will once older probably do as their parents did. It is a said state of affairs and a circle that must be broken. How one would go about doing this is open to suggestion.
The majority of todays youth are good honest law abiding people. It is just that small faction that drags them all through the mud.
