Give me a break!

Give me a break! And I don't mean no KitKat bar!

"The boy has refused to participate in Restorative Justice"?! Seriously?!?!?

Isn't the rule "You break it, you buy it?" or "You mess it, you clean it?"

Then what's the point of Restorative Justice if the children are allowed to 'choose' whether they want to make amends or not? And what's with only giving offenders a few mere hours of Community work in the first place? A few hours?! That's it?!

There are many good people in this Community who work COUNTLESS hours of volunteer work PER WEEK cleaning and tending to this City - often working on their lunchbreaks, and then again after work before heading home - and they haven't even done anything WRONG! Surely offenders can pull their Restorative Justice for causing harm, no?

Who raises these kids?! God help us when this boy enters the Workplace!

If that was my kid I would'a stripped him of all his pleasures - no cell phone, no computer, no TV and then would have dragged him out myself until he pulled all of his Restorative Justice and then some; while having him provide a letter of apology to boot! Then I would get his uncles and aunts and grandparents and younger cousins to come over now and then and when they asked about him...I'd say..."Oh. He's right here... I'll let HIM tell you what he's up to these days. He can explain it all to you himself." And I'd sit his younger cousins on the couch beside him - looking up at their older cousin waiting for him to say something. Perhaps explaining to the younger ones...he might even feel a bit ashamed. No?
