Safer Society started this petition to The Government

Youths are running riot in many towns, making it impossible for decent people to go out at night or feel safe travelling to and from home. Even usually quiet towns are being affected by the freedom youths believe they have to do whatever they want and get away with it. 

It's time parents were made to recognise they are responsible for their children's discipline in the community their safety and the safety of others.

Whether they are drinking, taking/selling drugs, vandalising public property, letting off fireworks, breaking shop windows and stealing etc they should be made to correct the damage they have done and face prosecution.

The best police force to control youth behaviour is at home, parents must be encouraged to teach their children that bad behaviour is unacceptable. At the very least it brings shame on the family, at worst it leads to an adult life of crime.

We believe that parents should accept responsibility and when they fail to control their children, should face prosecution or parental training with bad conduct marks against their name.

There will be exceptions where an out of control child may have mental health issues etc and such instances should be treated fairly. This must be decided by the Courts.
