The UN and a leading childs charity Barnardos have reported their concern at the demonizing of youngsters in the UK. But imo this takes the
Two three year old boys are being investigated by police for vandalism has been reported in the Daily Wail (Mail)
.Two boys aged three have become the youngest suspects in British criminal history.They were questioned by police, in separate cases, after
complaints of vandalism.
The two are among ten children under six who have been subject to investigations for crimes including sexual offences and criminal damage.
The figures, from officials in Scotland, include a five-year-old boy cautioned for lewd behaviour
I am at a loss to know how two three year old toddlers could be accused of vandalism, did they draw on a neighbours car, or pick a few flowers from
their garden. wrong yes, but kids of three tread on ants. If it was consistant breaking the neighbours fence why not question the parents.
Was the sexual offences kids having a look at the 'bits' that are different, According to an online dictionary lewd behavior is being sexually
unchaste or licentious, we are talking about a five year old child, how can he be i.e. unchaste? He could of course have been abused and enacting what
he had been taught to do, but why caution him. As it was a sexual offence this will be with him for a long time, if not forever.
Not so long ago I read of two girls getting a caution for playing hopscotch on the pavement (sidewalk) Another child got a warning for climbing a
garden tree and looking into the neighbours garden, it infringed the neighbours privacy.
I can see this becoming more frequent which will result in even more control by the state and police. People will be afraid to let their kids even
play in the garden. The only interaction with others will be at school overlorded by the thought police.
I wonder did any of you on ATS get up to mischief when you were kids, or were you all paragons of virtue?
What was you doing when you was three.
