3 year olds (no not a misprint 3 as in three, 1, 2, 3,) are to be targeted in a scheme to control future young thugs. Nursery workers will be trained to ship them off to "intensive" foster care, if they are singled out by bullying behavior or if their immediate family has a history of criminallity. WTF when was the last time anyone was mugged by a toddler?, or had their car stolen by a toddler? Even if this things works, it will take 15 years for the improved toddler to reach 18, where by all his elder siblings will have stripped everything of value from this great, before labour, nation. Without getting rabid on this matter. I say, longer, tougher sentencing. Bootcamps where they get up at 0600hrs? Pah, holiday camp more like. get 'em out at 0500hrs. Don't bother with touchy feely classes, get 'em on the square and beast the drugs out of them. All though the same report that came up with toddler crime, also states that 85% of inmates in young offenders institutions were bullies at school and 43% of male prisoners had offspring with criminal records. Also the report reckons that bullies should not be treated as victims but as the arrseholes they actually are. They are not the victims of social circumstances and are actually far from suffering low esteem. A fcuking 3 year old could have told them that!!! Bring back the birch!!!
