The child in question should have been locked away in a young offenders institution without acces to any playstation games or chocolate bars until he learned his actions will be punished. PLUS his parents - the kid is 12 - where the hell were they? Even if you are a single Mum like me - you can still know where your kids are at ALL times and make sure they know right from wrong. A good smack would do him no wrong either! So this is where mollycoddling kids gets you? as for ASBO's what a pointless waste of time.
