abos are nonsense.
you rule with the carrot and the stick.
if someone is naughty birch them.
if very naughty, cat o' nine tails.
if very, very naughty, flog 'em to death.
but don't imprison them. why should my taxes pay for their breakfasts?
ASBO are really just a mechanism for evading the presumption of innocence and the higher burden of proof of criminal prosecutions.
I dno, i dont think rehab would work either. Knowing kids who actually have these asbos, i honestly doubt communities would be able to do anything. this is a result of bad parenting and neglection tbh.
however less police + no asbos= recipie for possible disaster
