Action needed before yobs get out of hand

I think I should comment on all the letters that have been in the Express about troublesome youths.

anti-social behaviour

Me and my family live just around the corner from the elderly residents and I have witnessed this first hand. My heart goes out to them, but I have to say the problem is not just there, it’s all around this area of Duke Bar and has been for some years. It’s not just Asian youths, although they are the majority at times, but it’s white English as well.

I know all about anti-social behaviour as I have been a victim of it for a long time now. As for the comments about the police, some of them are right and some wrong. I myself have been a witness to three racist incidents in the last two weeks and much, much more. When the police do come they do not get out of their car, just do a drive by. When they do come and see you they do not write anything down. It is as if they don’t care.

There is much more to this story but I will not go on and on. So please, let’s see some action before it all gets out of hand.
