Another diddler gets caught after a slap on the wrist.


For shits sake.
About the rumblings that the Conservatives are going to get tougher on youth crime,

If the Librals and Jack "I'm shocked" Layton don't like the idea, then they'll have a coronary if they read what I have to say!

I see no mention of parental responsability.

As a parent I believe that its my sacred responsability to teach my kids the value of right and wrong. Criminals are created through parental neglect in most cases, and I believe that the parents of youth criminals should be dragged before a judge.

And yes, I practice what I preach. My kids, ages seven and five, got into some used motor oil and dumped it into my neighbor's rain barrel. He came around asking who did it and they blamed another kid, but the wife and I checked their laundry and found oily clothing. The whole family went over and apologised, and the kids punishment (a week to their rooms, and a month inside with daily speeches on honesty and respect for other peoples property) was explained and an offer was made for reperations.
