Punish our local juveniles for the crimes they commit!
Have you heard through the news, a neighbor, a friend, or co-worker about all the car thefts, and home burglaries in Weber County over the last year or so? Were you a victim to one of these juveniles, and feel like justice has not been served? Are you worried that it will continue, or even get worse, and more frequent? Are you a parent who feels your disciplinary rights have been violated, or interfered with? Do you feel these kids need to be punished for their actions, instead of given community service hours and a fine, and let off the hook? Are you tired of the local police having little options on how they can discipline these ungovernable children? I know, I personally am tired of these kids getting away with murder, because our local laws have cut everyone (parents, police, juvenile detention centers etc) off at the knees, and told us to walk. These kids are stealing hundreds of guns, vehicles, breaking into our homes and stealing our things we have worked hard for. They are damaging our property. They are posting photos with these stolen guns on social media. They are on several drugs. They are putting our entire community in extreme danger. And they keep getting let go with a slap on the wrist due to their age being under 18. I have been told that the only thing I can do, is to contact our legislators about the issues. Therefore i am starting this petition with hopes I can get some signatures, and take them all to our legislators, to try and have things changed, before it's too late. I don't want to live in a world of fear over teenagers any longer. We have to change something before they grow up and turn into adults. If these kids are who will run our town in the future, then count me out! Little children, little problems, big children, BIG problems. Let's do anything we can to get these kids under control, and gain some parental rights back as well.
