Robbers let off
The same story in the post
This story appeared on the blog a while ago. The problem arises when youths become aware that all they will get is a caution which then facilitates a substantial amount of crime. There is a role for cautions, but this is not it.
At the same time we need to link to communities to handle probation and community service issues. I have been working with people within the communities of Birmingham to look at behaviourial modification. The only certainty at the moment is that the current system does not work properly.
