Interesting comment. From my knowledge of this lad (for the sake of using him as an example and I don't want to go on too much about him) he has committed a number of offences in the area that remain unreported as folk have wished to give him ''another chance''.

How could statistics tell me that ''someone like him'' isn't a perpetrator when the crimes haven't been reported to start with? The only form of victimisation is that he isn't being held accountable for his actions.

No worries at all Mike, no inference taken at all. :) I enjoy a good discussion. [8D]

I can take or leave most things generally, but last night after posting the other comment I thought to myself geeze what am I doing, its getting a bit close to home to be discussing ''it'' so frankly.

I think I have run my course with the thread and made it plain what I think. Time to move on me thinks. [^] :)
