Opinion: Help police catch youth before they kill someone

IDIOTS. That's all you can call them. Just idiots.

Anyone who thinks it's okay to stand on an embankment and throw rocks down at passing vehicles is an idiot too.

And yet we have young people in our community who obviously consider it to be a joke, or something similar. It's not.

It's a criminal action and it's high time the offenders were caught and dealt with by the police.

We're probably very lucky that we are not reporting on a serious injury accident, or a fatality.

The likelihood is very high when people get up to these sorts of antics.

These young people are obviously a little cunning because they haven't yet been nailed, but it's up to the residents in the area to help the police catch them.

Best solution, residents: when you hear them at your back fence, grab your phone and take a quick photo of them before they can run away, and then send the photo to the police.

We would much rather be reporting the offenders have been caught than that there has been a serious crash because of them.
