The cost to the victims of kids who steal a car then do crash and grab crimes, is substantial. Insurance does not cover the cost of the losses. Financial reparation from the perpetrators is well nigh impossible. However the impact of the crime must be acknowledged and understood by the perpetrators. The impact of the crime/damage must also be 'repaid' in a socially acceptable way by those that do the crime.


The Justice system has the means to impose a system of reparations through assessing a value on the crime committed and thereby imposing a community service, according to the level of crime and the age of the kid. Create a formula whereby the kid repays …

Well said. That school programme reminded me of the primary school I attended many moons ago - Friday afternoon was set down for "civic duties' which involved weeding in the main (most of us doing the work were glad to get out of the class room for those few hours).

As you noted, it did us good in several ways. Mind you, we also got the strap if we'd been really annoying at the time of our offence.

No consequences mean no fear. These kids are just laughing at the police. Like taking candy from a baby! It's a green light to unearned income! It's just so easy, so why wouldn't they do it?

As far as I'm aware the police are following the directions of the political elite. They generally do a difficult job well, imho.

Mark Mitchell has promised to fix this or he will resign after a year in charge. Hmmm..... Another thought: Re the Alan Hall case, why did the police remove the word "Maori" from the witness description which seemed to have resulted in Hall's wrongful conviction? Orders from higher up or what?

Yes, and in Hall's case this was in the mid -1980s so been going on for a while. I guess they are afraid of "racial profiling" or some such? And yes, it's ridiculous.
