Because everybody on this island seems to forget what they did when they were younger. I'm sure most of the police force have been drunk in public and alike or have been a bit boisterous and i'm sure the people who reported the matter were the same. A lot cheap or free to do for kids in the past has been built on or gone bust, yet these kids are seen as yobs for having nothing to do. I will say though that some of the gobby youths do need a good slap because they think they are untouchable (which they are with all these ridiculous views of not being able to smack kids). The problem is that most of the kids get tarred with the gobby ones brush.
