'Council's patrolling children help to cut crime'

Nope, it’s not April 1st

Children as young as seven are being trained to patrol Scotland's streets to help fight crime. Uniformed primary school pupils go on the beat with council-employed community wardens to help police hunt down vandals, fly-tippers and troublemakers...It is hoped children who have been out on the patrols will be encouraged to report back to community wardens or directly to the police if they spot any wrongdoing as they go about their everyday lives. The junior wardens are issued with a notebook, pencil and camera for their investigations, and wear a polo shirt with the community warden logo.

Wonder what colour the shirt is?

Sounds quite good.
Where can I get my kids signed up? Do you have to have a local group or is it national. We have so many unruly brats round our estate it would be good to get the boys involved in sorting them out. We are sick of them. Their mums arnt much better they just shrug there shoulders. The kids aren't bad really but they need controlling.
I'm not anti kids but some of them are really horrible. I blame the govenment for keep making them feel bad. There mums love them but the schools are a waste off time

Is everyone else aware that there is something very frightening happening to this society? From the introduction ID cards onwards.

We are continually being forced to draw parallels with Orwell's 1984. And here we see the beginnings of the child spies. This is no joke and I am not being hysterical. Once children are 'on board' with 'the regime', the future stability of the system is secure.

An attempt is being made to take our children from us. A child given full exposure to all the dumbed down toys/TV/games/magazines/adverts/schooling from the cradle onwards, will be so 'switched off' by the time they are of an age to think for themselves, they will not have the resources to thing for themselves.

And here, with the introduction of 'child police' we see the next phase.

As parents we can sit back and let our children be neutered or we can counter-attack. We need to empower and our young children with the gift of imagination: switch off the TV, teach them history, give them nourishing material to read. We need to politicise our older children, so they at least recognise the forces that are at work on them.

I realise I am preaching to the choir here, but guess I had to just say it anyway......
