Yobs named and shamed

Newcastle Council gets tough!

A group of young teenage yobs who terrorised the Scotswood and Cruddas Park areas of Newcastle have been served with anti-social behaviour orders by magistrates which seriously restrict where they can go, what they can do, and who they can associate with. The four were part of a fifteen strong gang who made life a misery for their neighbours and local community, it took the efforts of Community Police, Community Wardens, local residents, and Newcastle Homes to produce a 20 page document evidencing their misdeeds.

I'm sorry to keep banging this drum about community partnerships, but the evidence is there to see, our neighbouring councils are making full use of the resources at their disposal to make their streets safer for the local residents. We have yet to see similar actions being taken in South Tyneside! Perhaps if we had started these types of prosecutions many months ago, a young man might still have had the rest of his life to look forward to, and a mother would not be facing the greatest agony of her life!

I appeal to South Tyneside Council and South Tyneside Homes to wake up, get these partnerships in full swing, and start taking some action now!

As a postscript it's nice to see that magistrates in Newcastle are happy to see the pictures, names, and addresses of these young thugs being published.
