3 yobs aged approx 16. Average height for that age, 2 white, 1 black throwing eggs at windows in Stansfield rd. Seen heading into town via the pells and then down the passage by the soap factory
If anyone knows who they are, please let me know on here as i'd like to have a quiet word with them.

Please contact us at Lewes Police Station regarding the above. It is vitally important that we are contacted at the time the offence is happening as I am sure you can appreciate there is a much higher chance of catching those responsible.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Doesn't Lewes Police Station only do part-time hours?

But Judge Ned, once the police have told them off, if they have to tell them off for doing it another ten or so times they might give them an ASBO, a pointless bit of paper telling them not to do the thing they shouldn't have been doing in the first time, then if they keep doing it a few more times they might end up in court and get told off and told not to do it again and then if they keep doing it then eventually they might get a community service order so you see it's a really effective deterrent ringing the police because if you do that the kids know they can only go out being yob-ish another 30 or so times before there being a risk of facing some actual consequences.
It's not entirely the police's fault (Although given how often there is vandalism and the like in that part of town of an evening you'd think they'd send a patrol down there from time to time) so much as it is the ridiculously lenient criminal justice system in this country that requires you to either commit a very serious crime or commit a ludicrously long string of offences before anything of substance is done to reprimand you.

Ed Can Do.I have a feeling that one of the three mentioned by Landporter,already has an ASBO. He just moves around!

I was just thinking - landporter saw these yobs at 05:40, that's a bit early for yobs to be up and about isn't it ? I mean, their brains don't start working until after midday surely ? Still, I think ECD may have a point, and the police should be doing far more patrols around the town (yes, even that early).

As teenagers my friends and I often used to stay up all night, usually as a result of taking amphetamines, LSD etc.
Mind you we did nothing antisocial.

Yobs! No such thing, just youngsters bored to hell living a dull life, teach them the art of fun, advise them to travel (yes, Amsterdam is a good place to start) once they experience real fun/life they will get busy working in order to be able to experience the wonderful pleasures life has to offer and will stop wasting time annoying bored folk. Think about it Yobs, Uncle Pete knows best. Work, earn and escape. End Off.

Reported to old Bill now.

PVB you have a good point there. I like your theory, but how do we get them to travel in the first place ?

A one-way ticket to Croydon, perhaps? They'd fit right in there, and might stop feeling alienated and excluded.

DFL we could show Goverment sponsored adverts of youngsters having a good time in Amsterdam and Ibiza, then advertise vacancies at the job centre straight after the advert?? To be honest, have had a rather long lunch, will think of your question and come back with ideas at a later date my friend. Best, Peter

Amsterdam? Ibiza? You for real? Two of the places I would not recommend for youngsters. Broadening ones horizons is one thing,which, I agree, is a good thing.To suggest drug,pornographic, booze riddled places is another.Before you say it, yes, I have been to these places as a mature adult, so feel qualified from experience, to say,your suggested destinations for youngsters is a no, no. Get them involved in a third world organization,let them see how others live, and how fortunate they are to be as cosseted they are here, it may, just may,give them the incentive to live a worthwhile existence! What these kids need is a sense of value,that vandalism,crime etc, is a whole other world they need not enter.

So youngsters need to be exposed to the less fortunate to then feel good about themselves eh? Decent Citizen, one does not need to feel better about oneself by comparing oneself to those less fortunate, in my day it was called being SMUG. My son and his friends have spent 6 months in Holland picking CABBAGES, yes, CABBAGES, and they earn jolly good money and party hard at the weekends. Sounds good to me, better than your philosophy my friend. Best, Peter. P.S What were you doing going to these booze, riddled, drug and pronographic places as an adult?? You should have known better ha ha. Till next time, Cheers.

Lol, Peter Byron. What indeed! I actually went to see the daffodils! Wandered into the dodgy areas to see what the fuss was about! I apologize if I came across as smug,just my humble opinion. I suppose what I was saying was, don"t give the little you know what"s any encouragement to be even worse!

I love Amsterdam and used to go there a lot. Despite the drugs, porn and prostitution, I never saw any mindless yobbery or vandalism. The only violence I saw was when a police officer tried to shoot someone who was running away.
I suppose the youth were too stoned to bother getting up to no good.

Well Decent and Annette, you both have valid points, as do we all, even though we disagree. My Ex thinks I am leading my son astray, but he is very happy, so that is all I can judge his youth on. Best to you both, no offence ever meant, just say it as I see it (which gets me into all sorts of scrapes ha ha) Best, Pete
