Guessed BS: Friends' house ransacked and burnt (UK) (39) RE: BS: Friends' house ransacked and burnt (UK) 02 Jan 02

I'm all for making the punishment fit the crime.
Getting them to clean the mess up, rub their noses in it. BUT if the miscreants do not subscribe to the moores of a society that doesn't work. They are more likely to cause more damage as they clean up.
anything you do to force them against their will will re-inforce their dis-association from society. Society is their pasture, their forraging, their RIGHT in a "me generation" kind of way.
take away the things they value most - and in 90% (not my figures) of the cases that would be DRUGS.
give 'em cold turkey, it won't solve the problem but would be a whole lot more entertaining than the mental wallpaper known as "reality TV".
