It's nasty and cruel to lock up kids - right?

Consider two stories about violent juveniles in the Telegraph today:

MORE than 30 drunken teens armed with glass bottles, rocks and wooden planks spiked with nails have bashed a family of seven in an unprovoked attack.

And it was all because Cairns Brothers rugby league player Neals Biehler, 23, told a teenage stranger he did not have a cigarette to give him.

A TEENAGER has been arrested over a stabbing attack on two men outside a pub in southern Sydney.

An 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were attacked by a group of six males outside a Hurstville hotel on the night of September 17. Both were rushed to St George Hospital suffering serious stab wounds.

The pair are still in hospital, with police saying they are in a stable condition.
Gee, it would be so unfair, wouldn't it, to lock these little bastards up.

Just because they have no compunction about bashing a stranger over the head with a lump of wood, or sticking a knife int their guts, it doesn't mean we should deprive them of their freedom for a while.

Like crap.

I don't care what the soft heads say about rehabilitation and jail being no deterrent - I simply don't want people like this roaming around our streets. I don't give a flying fuck if they go into prison illiterate, violent, angry and mentally ill, and come out illiterate, violent, angry and mentally ill - just so long as the time between entry and exit is about 10 years. That's 10 years of people not getting clobbered because these shits are locked away.

So what about their age? If they're old enough to be roaming the streets at 3am thumping people, they are old enough to serve their time.
