In the US, there's the same problem with all the minorities and the Natives too. I'm going to play devil's advocate here and say that in the case
of the native peoples, IT'S THEIR BLOODY LAND! You Children of Britain went to these places and took their land! What the heck do you want?
As for minorities in these countries... It's "your own" (i.e., your society's previous generations) fault they're there. Your forefathers saw
fit to conquer their homelands with at least as much savagery as you're experiencing now. Those peoples' countries and cultures suffered, not
benefited, for it. Your historical brutality has come home to roost.
At this juncture in time, we have only one real way forward and that is to espouse extreme understanding, compassion, and love for one another.
Recriminations and revenge will get us nowhere. You're seeing the result of that now. Assigning blame has no worth. Get up and start to help those
young hoodlums to a better future. They are obviously screaming out their need for help. Do something!
Oh please, I know you put devils advocate but still. As you put it "They are obviously screaming out their need for help. Do something!" They are
not, they are arrogant un-educated respect less cretins with zero discipline. The only thing they cry out with is laughter at your bloodied face after
they've stamped on it a few times.
Sorry but its this kind of namby pamyness and wrapping with cotton wool of the problem only makes it worse. No person whatsoever has the right to
physically assault anybody be it for a phone, a bit of change or even for a laugh which is so often common. There is No Excusse period. 99.9% of these
kid know damned well the difference between right and wrong.
Doesn't matter who's land it is or where they're from or their back ground. (broken family crowd please re-read) These kids need consequences for
their actions as do their parents or carers. I'm afraid a slap on the wrist, ASBO's (UK Anti-social-behaviour-order) or community service just
doesn't do it.
Governments build them youth centers, parks and community activities to try and help. They respond with graffiti, destruction and violence. ASBO's
are like a score card - if you ain't got one you isn't 'ard enough is the common status quo. These kids get them and show off about them for
It boils down to respect and their lack of it. They need to be taught some. gang culture revolves around respect, turn it upon them an instill some by
what ever means necessary. If that means imprisonment, forced labor or even a public flogging then so be it. I recommend compulsory military service
The reason this problem is growing all over the planet is because there are little to no consequences for these youths. The politically correct crowd
have ruined that "to protect us/them".
Its high time to say no. Hand back the power to the police and the people.
