$35 million raw meat for the howling electorate publicity campaign
Army to run teens' boot camps
The army will run boot camps to keep the worst teenage offenders on the straight and narrow under youth justice provisions to go before Parliament tomorrow. Forty of the most serious repeat offenders each year will undergo three months' military training as part of 18 months' intensive supervision under the plans. Social Development Minister Paula Bennett said the boot camps would follow six-month residential programmes and be followed by a further nine months' supervision.
$35million for a programme that no academic literature backs up – what a waste of $35million when we are desperate for every cent we can get! BOOT CAMPS DON’T WORK, it’s as simple as that, but in a country were youth are either vilified as boy racers, taggers or yuff gang members, the thirst to see them suffer and get a boot up the arse is so strong that nACTional are willing to throw raw meat policy to the electorate even when they know it won’t do a bloody thing.
What a waste of time and effort just to feed the baying dogs of the red-necked right.
