Bad parenting imo is the problem.education and opportunity not stop and search. Give people hope, is it that much to ask?
Some kids don't want education or an opportunity to tow the line and go to work, they don't want to learn a trade or take a course in something.
I was lucky, my Dad instilled in me and my brothers the importance of work ethic and becoming qualified in something.
The lack of the right nurturing has led them to not care and to look at the easy way......crime.
Some parents are shit, and don't give a shit.
