That is so terribly stupid...Most of them live with their parents (I suppose), so they are punishing parents for not being able to keep them in order. That's cruel because even those in much better position can't keep their kids in order (alcohol, drug use, partying you name it, even when they are not thieves).This is just NOT way to resolve this problem and it will back fire...

Well, they could borrow the bulldozer technique from Israel - and that doesn't apply only to the poorest. Much fairer.
