    Default Trashed toilets in Wick.

    Anyone in Caithness for ‘increased enforcement’ of the ASBO situation.
    Wick toilets the latest.

    We could take a leaf out of Switzerland or America or any number of countries' book by introducing a curfew for all teenagers. That will sort the problem of anti-social behaviour straight away but unfortunately it will affect the innocent teenagers. Switzerland had enough and introduced it in Interlaken after the under-age drinking, noise and behaviour got out of control. Now no-one under the age of 16 is allowed out on the streets after 10pm unless accompanied by their parents. Judging by the nutjobs in Wick though it would be better set at 6pm...or at the least when darkness falls.

    What do all the parents under 16 do?

    That's obvious, they need to be accompanied by the grandparents

    Does it matter where they are from!
    People should not be allowed to wander the streets....Drunk and disorderly!
    No one seems to want to complain about it.
    How about contacting Mathew Reiss the ex local Police Officer?

    Does anyone know when the trashed toilets will re-open so we can collect our free bog rolls?

    Innocent teenagers would not be tarred with the same brush if the liberal social experiment was finally brought to a close. The birch, compulsory labour to repair the damage, and confiscation of assets to twice the value of the damage would ensure that lessons were learnt.

    Id doubt if a teenager would have assets to the value of twice the cost of the damages
    W.A.T.P.

    It'll never cover the cost, but will hit home as a disincentive to do that again. After a hard day working to repair the damage, they won't think much of them coming home to no smartphone, no 40 tv in the bedroom, no games console, no laptop. And if they are old enough, no car. The value won't pay for the damage, but it might act as a deterrant.

    Default Caithness and the slippery slope.

    Sadly, I am afraid that Caithness is changing and not for the better.

    Enforcing an ASBO seems like a good idea along with all the other suggestions, however when the powers that be (ScotGov) will not provide enough "enforcers" then how can anything be enforced.

    There is simply no intention or interest from our representative to at least maintain a good standard of living for those living north of Golspie.

    If you wish to flout the law then Caithness is probably the easiest place to do it in the UK.

    May be the solution will have to be that the toilets are locked at nightfall.

    First the Council and the Police, have to change the ‘culture’ of allowing drunkenness on the streets.
    When will someone go to Willie Mackay, and the Officer in charge of the Police and demand that something be done.
    Willie Mackay got his picture taken, staged at the toilets. So now he has to take responsibility! Let the police lock a few up...the message will soon get around! Go to the Groat and make public demands that something be done.
    Agreed??

    I do find it interesting, that modern day youth have all sorts of School activities and support, when we had none other than ‘mucking the Byre’ and playing with old tractors and cars, and we didn’t have time to damage things. C’est la vie.

    I wonder if the UK will ever wake up and wonder "what were we thinking? We abolished discipline and punishment and encouraged freedom of expression. Then wondered why everything went to pot. What on earth were we thinking? "
