Just a comment on the story about the guy who just got out of prison and committed suicide. His family are blaming the ASBO as it stigmatised him.

Hang on a minute, what about his behaviour that led to the ASBO? He had been in prison 7 times, and was quoted as saying "I can't get drunk anywhere but in the streets" ,I think because he was banned from everywhere?

Just seemed to me that it highlighted the problem of people not taking responsibility for their actions when the family blamed the authorities for the suicide.
It's the same when parents expect teachers to turn their little blighters into perfect angels without any positive input or support for the teachers from them! :boxing:
Oh, that's pathetic. The ASBO stigmatised him, but his time inside didn't???? Purleezzze!

I think perhaps his parents need to wonder what it is in his background / upbringing etc. which led him to the sort of delicate mental state which might prompt suicide.
