    These CHILDREN need to feel the pain that they cause people.
    Use the cane, humiliate them in public. Let everyone know what
    these CHILDREN are doing.

    SPARE THE ROD AND SPOIL THE CHILD.

    WAKE UP POLICE, JUDGES AND ESPECIALLY ALL PARENTS.

      He ain’t no child. He is old enough to know better. Punish them severely and make an exams of them so others will not do the same.

      What they should have gotten was the same beat down that the punks got in dockyard when a tourist beat the daylights out of some punks that tried to steal from them. I bet they haven’t repeat offended!

      Just work their little CHILDREN a*s off so much they will not forget what they did.
      Make them work on the streets and clean up the crap and trash. That is what the present prisons should be doing anyway. Make them earn their way back to the public life. Why should we have to pay for their stay at Westgate? That’s BULL&&&&
