8.30 Tagging multi offending youths with electronic computerised collars

< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


I direct someone designs an electronic collar, with an external radius of 66cm that makes a noise everytime it gets near:

  • A mobile phone or ordinary phone (1 metre)
  • A CD player or radio (1 metre)
  • A TV (6 metres)
  • Another electrical collar (6 metres)

The noise must be such that it doesn't annoy those sitting around the collars, only those that are wearing them. There is one exception to this - if the collar gets to within 6 metres of another, I want very loud alarms to go off on both collars.

I direct these Elizabethan looking collars should be fitted, at the full discretion of the courts on any multi-offending youth guilty of his or her third offence.

Let the multi-offending youths get a headache everytime they attempt to take part in normal teenage activities such as talking on the phone, watching TV or listening to music.

Let multi-offending youths keep away from other similar criminals for two reasons: one: the court order says so and two: they'll end up with a migraine from the squealing.

To those who feel such punishment deterrent is cruel, let them think about the victims of the crimes. Remember, if the multi-offending youth just reads, perhaps his school homework, he won't get a headache.

Oh, and those who feel such punishment deterrent will embarrass the poor little "cherubs", let them stay at home in shame. At least they won’t cause much more trouble or create more victims of juvenile crime.

I commend a recent initiative by the Sovereign tribes of Australia that forced young arsonists to confront burns victims in specially prearranged hospital visits. Let others follow this example.

I also commend tribes that use voice recognition telephone technology which ensures young offenders are where they are told to be.

As of today, I direct laws that protect youths from having their names and photographs published should be changed. Expose any youth, child or not, guilty of their third criminal offence. Name them, shame them and protect the local population from further crimes by these animals.

It will take an average person 12 hours to read and understand the contents of this website and listen to 'The Speech'. Is one hour a day for 12 days too long? Why don't you email the www.12-12-12.org link to 12 of your friends and discuss their opinions in 12 days time? Maybe the 7th person in your email chain can break the secret code and the 12th person, may hold the key to World Peace. Are you or someone in your family the 7th or 12th person?
