Riot police were excellent; YourSay.

THE police did an excellent job during the riots - and it's a very dangerous job they had to do.

A lot of people don't realise that individual police officers have to be careful not to overstep the mark or they could be punished themselves, probably with dismissal from the force.

I believe under recent conditions police should be able to use any amount of force without fear of punishment themselves.

I also think it's a fantastic punishment for any youths convicted to be evicted from council homes. Probably a bit harsh on their families who have to be punished as well but this sentence may help prevent any future riots.

As most of these thugs appear to be under the age of 25, it might be an even better sentence to ban them from claiming any other benefits for a period of ten years.

If they are destroying their community, why should the community pay them? D Jeffries, Redditch
