I was around my grandmothers house, and she was watching a program, they had a man on there that was charged with assault after punching a man who had broken into his house at night. This then go me thinking, should/can these yobs/chavs be classed as terrorists? We are told that terrorist dont have to be of a certain religious background. Im positive that everyone on this site would do the same as this man, if they where in his position, (so would I) but people in the forces (not me yet) put their lives on the line day after day to defend this country but if you was to defend the country from chavs you would be charged with assault and possibly serve a prison sentence and lose you position within the forces. This doesnt just count for the forces but members of the public who want to make their streets a safe place by dealing with these people who are breaking the law and are anti-social so and so. So can they or should they be classed as terrorists? Under the Terrorism Act 2000 describes an act of terrorism as: 1-B: Chavs intimidate member of the public, make people (especially the old) scared to leave their house. E.g. stopping an ambulance form getting an old man, who has had a heart attack, from getting to the hospital. 1-C: they want to advance their chavness by forcing people to put up with their behaviour. 2-A: attacking people beating them, half to death just for the fun of it (advance happy slapping). E.g. throwing stones and rocks at a father and son playing cricket 2-B: breaking into homes, or throwing rocks etc at a house. E.g. a brick through my living room window. 2-C: advance happy slapping, throwing rocks at homes. 2-D: vandalising train tracks. 2-E: again vandalising train tracks 3: well, in London kids shooting kids, could knife attacks come under this? So in my opinion the actions of (the majority) chavs can be classed as terrorism. So, if America can class an Iran military force as terrorist, why can we do the same with chavs and the ASBO lot?
