More discipline

SIR - I thought Steve Chalkley made some telling points in his letter last week.

Reactive policing sends out the wrong message, but the problems he highlighted do need managing better. The police cannot do everything without public co-operation, but how about the responsibilities of the parents of 13 and 14-year-olds, fuelled with alcohol and out until the early hours of the morning?
