These aren't children

We have more examples of something I complain about every so often - thuggish young men committing violent crimes but being taken before the children's court.

A sixteen year old has been charged with bashing a 93 year old woman, trespass and drug possession.

Unbelievably, he was bailed to appear in the children's court.

A Jewish family of five all suffered injuries when they were attacked by a gang of young hoodlums as they walked home from dinner.

The hoodlums included two seventeen year olds, who are already on bail for assaulting a police officer. They too will be appearing before the children's court.

To say a change is long overdue is an understatement.
