I find it very disturbing when I turn on the radio in the morning and listen to the top stories and five of them are committed by youths and consist of random beatings against innocent people. What the hell is going on with our children and where are these kids parents!!! The young offenders act needs to be changed to protect the public. I no longer feel safe walking by myself in the city and I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way. I personally know 5 or 6 people that have been victims of brutal beatings in Halifax in the last 10 years, all of which consisted of swarmings against one individual. These people are cowards. It's time for the police and politicians to push the federal government for changes to the Act. It's sad that so many people have fallen victim to these brutal beatings and it needs to stop.

Scared to death
