I believe that my idea would indeed have an effect and would lower the amount of anti social offences comitted and could also save a small amount for the treasury.
Dear Sir/Madam, in the last en years there seems to have been a surge in the amount of offences committed by youths. Various ideas to tackle this problem have failed. Because the tactics used to not work on the youths comitting them. Asbos are worn as badges of honour. However I believe I know what would indeed work. If a anti-social crime is commited by an individual then any benefit they receive or whomever they live with receives is cut for one week. This would surely make these kids wake up and think twice before commiting such acts again.
