It’s nice to see that our local news sources, radio and print, are dipping in to the website to see if there are any new stories and test the pulse of local opinion.
When I arrived home today, it was to find a handful of news releases from the police, who look as if they have been busy. It also strikes me that many of the younger people given ASBOs, don’t give a damn and carry on re-offending until they are finally “Banged-up” away from the rest of us. Perhaps I’m wrong but I recall an early story from this month on ThanetLife where a respected inner London social worker appeared to be expressing much the same view. You may have read that tagging technology also doesn’t work properly but the technologists have known about this for ages and in some areas, it’s about as useful as placing a rubber band around a criminals arm and saying, “There, don’t go outside because we’ll find out, not.”
Meanwhile, Al Jazeera, the Arabic television news channel will be visiting Thanet tomorrow, which is nice!
