With youngsters, generally, you get what you put it in. They are a reflection of the society they live in. If you treat their education, opportunities and mentoring as a joke like we do today, you’re going to wind up with jokers.

Put them inside or a while and pass the message that these brave boys assaulted a man in his 60’s. Hopefully they’ll get a pasting. The 4 onto 1 wow brave nippers. Hope the guy is ok.

Yeah, that’s not how the prison system works. Once you go in, you are protected, cared for and catered to to a degree that would put most schools or colleges to shame. They won’t get jail for this anyway (what world do you live in?) Furthermore, there’s plenty of 60 year old men who are violent, and plenty who buy and often supply drugs to youths, and teach them how to be criminals.
