I've just been reading about an update on the arson attack that gutted Gardenvale railway station yesterday (http://www.theage.com.au/national/te...1207-kd3x.html). The station was over 100 years old and the fire caused around $100,000 damage.
Who should be responsible for the damage bill? The teenagers or the parents of the teenagers? Certainly not Connex / Metro / tax-payers! If an adult (anyone over 18) had done this, they would have been jailed for arson (up to 8 years).
When is Generation Zzzz going to wake up that they are not a law unto themselves and that they need to earn respect to be respected. I'm sick and tired of hearing about speeding P-platers (and seeing them) wrapping themselves around trees, teenagers and supposedly young adults causing damage to public property and graffiti on public statues.
