Wigton in Cumbria may well have a problem with some teenagers but talk about cashing in on public fear!
As a kid I used to rejoice at the late nights cause we could play football well up to 10 O'clock. This is what this hysteria about the "Evil of Teenage groups" is coming to. Kick all of 'em off the streets so we adults feel OK. This is totally ridiculous, it reflects all the paranoid fears and irrational attitude to teenagers and young adults that is endemic in the age group 40-60 right now.
When is it that this dislocation will be viewed as OUR responsibility? These are just kids, our age group is paranoid and pathetic. Assert yourselves for God sake! Dont produce laws to get kids off the street, walk up to them and say hello!
