Letter: Birch the yobs.

Byline: D. Southern

WHEN will society stand up and demand from the government stronger sentences for yobs and petty criminals.

ASBOs are a joke. Let's fight fire with fire. Firstly, as an experiment for two years, let's birch - or similar - the yobs and petty crooks who make ordinary folks' lives a misery. After two years we can then see if the punishment has made any difference or not.

Secondly, have an amnesty for two months for the giving up of guns and knives etc. After that period, anyone carrying a gun will be given a sentence of 20 years or more.

In reality none of the above will happen in case we upset somebody's rights. So as a law-abiding citizen I can only watch as society goes from bad to worse
