UK slaps ‘Anti-Social Behaviour Order’ on 13-year-old

Wow—the United Kingdom has something called an “anti-social behaviour order,” (Asbo) which is a civil order designed to correct incidents which are disruptive to the community but don’t warrant criminal prosecution. Read more about it on Wikipedia.

A young troublemaker named Jordan Kept Withey was recently subject to such an order. He is prohibited from “engaging or inciting others to engage in any behavior that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself, anywhere in the Huberside Police area.”

Do any of our UK readers know more about these orders? Do they work?

It sounds to me like society is trying to control everyone, even children because they will not get rid of the ones who keep causing the problems over and over and over again. Put us all in handcuffs and let the spaths run free.
