Why scrap order if it was a success? LETTERS.

PERHAPS someone could enlighten me. If we presume that the dispersal order on 16 year-olds in Bangor City centre was deemed to be necessary because they were actually there regularly and behaving antisocially, then how come Councillor Pickavance is asking for the order against that particularly age group to be lifted because they are not there now.

It simply does not make sense for a venture such as this to be hoist by its own petard.

Surely the absence of the menace demonstrates the success of the order and it should remain in place otherwise feral youths, at the age of maximum irresponsibility, will drift back like seagulls and pigeons, to their comfort zone at the heart of a well ordered city.

To remove the order against this section of the parentally uncontrollable would merely make it necessary to repeat the long winded process at some time in the future and at some cost to the law abiding citizens of Bangor. It is a pity other forward thinking cities do not follow suit in areas infected like this one used to be.
