Sickened by the rioting

Madam,

I am sickened by the rioting in London and other cities and wonder what has happened to family values – don’t some of these parents know where their children are at nights and more seriously what do they say when they come home with looted televisions and clothes?

i think we all know the answer to that – they just don’t care. We have sub-culture of people who perhaps not always though fault of their own because of a lack of opportunities and therefore money think it is right to steal.

The law has to come down hard on these people – no soft community service they have to be sent to prison because if they think they can get away with it this time what is to stop them doing it again?
