Ha try living there....ITS ABOUT THE KIDS NOT THE HOODIES
My Nan has lived in the area for the last 15 years. My good friend was born and bred in the area. There are 2 reasons for the feral teens.
Bout 10 years ago the area had a masive influx of people who had sold their houses in the outer suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne. These kids parents had alot of disposable cash to indulge thier toddlers in. These are the sorts who dont disipline thier kids nor do they actually care what the kids are up to cause whatever it is, it is no where as bad as it would be in balcktown or frankston from which they came.
The areas demographics is retired folk and these types of families with not much in between. The infrastructure of the area is poor for the kids. The retirees have lawn bowls and clubs, they are catered for and the kids are forgotten , BORED with little disipline or respect.
Now the area is small and every teen knows each other as there arnt many schools either. Substance abuse and teen pregnancies are rife in the area
These kids would hit the mall en mass and intimidate and roll folk, smash and grab from shops, we arnt talking 5 or 6 kids we are talking groups of 20+++++++
So its not about the hoodies its about the kids with anti social personality disorders who beat up old people and families with young kids, while they are trying to go to woollies to get thier groceries.
The hoodies (racked from city beach tweed city)just give a fair indication that the wearer is an anti social f***tard.
I suppose its what happens when kids are overindulged and undersupervised.
Its not just this area though its all over oz, no wonder they want to charge and arrest parents for thier crap kids.

You just don't like hoodies, you sexy asian profile pic!
I like hoodies, in fact I need them for health reasons, I'm a thermophile and I need the heat to keep me from getting sick.

Police state my arse, I have no sympathy for these hoodie kids. If you need to hide your face, you've done something wrong.
