Gimme an ASBO

The Times newspaper reports that yobs want an ASBO as a badge of honour : "Half of antisocial behaviour orders are breached by teenagers, who regard them as a “badge of honour” among their friends, according to a critical report published today. "

I recall the same thing was written here months ago, when commenting on the record one of our local ASBO 'celebrities' in Cliftonville and I did notice this week, a second lad, whose face has appeared in the local paper, in Westgate with a friend, hanging around outside one of the childrens homes; leading me to wonder what he was up to this far west.

His photo was published partly as a warning to local people and I wonder if the result only makes anyone who sees him now, a little paranoid. What do you think?
