Boy, 11, arrested fifty times has 17 convictions in just two years
Daily Mail ^ | 1/1/10 | Neil Sears

Posted on 01/01/2010 1:03:44 PM PST by Nachum

A boy of 11 who has already been arrested more than 50 times has become one of his town's ten most prolific burglars.

The one-boy crimewave was given an electronic tag and confined to his children's home in a bid to control him - but when he broke his curfew nine days running, magistrates simply gave up and removed the tag.

Staff at the children's home have repeatedly proved unable to stop him coming and going as he pleases.

Now police in Croydon, South London, are simply waiting for the youngster to turn 12 in February, when it will finally become possible to detain him in secure accommodation.

Talking? I bet they tried “talking” to him in his last 50 arrests.

They’re not doing much more than putting him in time out. Get him a damn tutor. Let him sit and pout...but keep on talking. Almost sounds like the kid is autistic??

Break his legs, the casts will stop him moving around and the pain will serve as a lesson in behaving oneself.

In most places in the US, this thug would get eventually get shot during one of his burglaries. Unfortunately, Britain not only has stringent anti-gun laws but also prohibits self-defense even in one’s own home.

He needs an extended program of percussive therapy. If he shows any sign of recovery, he should be sent to the military but only if his presence does not detract from the honorable branch he serves

Muslim recruiters are waiting with baited breath for this kid ... maybe they can talk him into blowing off his penis while blowing up a plane... ( the old "underware" bomb" trick).

Of course they'll need another "mark" to do the cell phone taping ... Cave monsters get off on that kind of stuff - they don't have cable.

Thanks to the left where disciplining your child is a crime we have hoodlums like this. Thank God I grew up in a time where when I acted stupid my dad stomped me and he didn’t have to worry about it.

This is the sort of kid who would be shipped off to Australia in previous centuries.

That or hard labor in a coal mine.

No - The military is NOT the place for criminals.
It is NOT a place to send juvenile delinquents/criminals/thieves to “straighten them out” because its mission is to “kill people and blow up things” ... when ordered.

The military can’t “fix” kids-criminals like this.

Nor can social workers. Here, you “breaK their self-imposed only-12-year-old-or-older can go to jail: it’s the social workers who put the kid, themselves, the police in this situation.

By the way, why is he free to walk the streets? Why not have a “social worker” or juvenile psychiatrist or “elementary school professor of education” or “criminal justice official” stay behind him, hand-cuffed to the jerk’s arm for six months.

The mission is to protect the public, not to let another 100 crimes get committed against other citizens.

Keep in mind he was arrested 50 times - meaning those are the times he was caught.

The boy needs a father. A man who can show him what is right and what is wrong, who can set firm limits and enforce them, who can train him up to be a man and not a thug.

Nobody mentions “father.” Have we all forgotten what that word means? It is not not just a noun, it’s a verb, an action word, the “actions” being training, discipline, strength, imposing of standards, care, oversight, love, and force. A powerful verb, and indispensible one. Father this child.

That is so, so sad. To be so young, and so incompetent. I hope he finds something he’s better at.

When he turns 18 he'll just move to the US and run for public office!

It may be that his natural father is long gone, and shame on him.

But is there not a man anywhere in that decaying nation who understands what a boy is, and what a boy needs? A soldier, a cop, a shopkeeper, a sheep farmer for God’s sake, a man with sense of duty and honor, who has not lost the feeling of the muscles in his right arm? Is there not a man left in Britain?

Father this child.

Fatherless children are unfortunately often too broken by adolescence for anyone to help.

If there was anyone to help.

And now with homosexuals having free rein in organizations like Big Brother, such kids could be even more ruined.

The men you describe need to form new organizations to help kids. But seriously, Mrs. Don-o, I think the old order needs to sort of crumble before a natural order can arise.

I'm always interested in your response to things, lj. I would agree there's no cause for optimism, but I can't think there's no hope. (Which, as the supernatural virtue, is only born when optimism dies.)

The collapse of a decayed society is a thought which comes to me more often than I like. When I pray for my nation to repent, I wonder what it would take for a nation like the UK or the USA to repent. I wonder what it is I'm praying for.

Who or what would be a scourge on the backs of the morally collapsed Britons? No, you don't have to say it. We both know.
