A teenager has struck a victory for young thugs after an order to stop him wearing low-slung trousers and a hooded top was scrapped because it breached his 'human rights'.Now, as it happens, though I disagree that this should be considered a 'human right', as does Ross, I agree that no sensible person could possibly think that banning his clothing is a good crime fighting tool, as does Longrider.
The ASBO is clearly utterly deranged and no sensible person could possibly believe that it will have the right effect on young Master Drummond.
A couple of hours in the stocks after being birched, however...
That might do the trick.
Critics said today the decision amounted to the human rights of the criminal being put above the human rights of innocent people.No, actually what it amounts to is the complete failure of the justice system to deal properly with these wastes of oxygen in the first place.
