What to do about the rock throwers?

TRUCKIES were disgusted with the behaviour of three youths who threw rocks at a truck off an overpass bridge recently.

One of the children was charged over the incident, which could have killed the driver.

Natalie Albury said make the kids sit down with the driver whose truck they hit.

"Meet his family, listen to the impact losing him would have on their family. Then give them a sentence they won't forget. Years ago I lost my dad in a workplace accident. For a few years I went to a couple of worksites and meetings and spoke about my story and educated grown men on the impact their actions could have on another family."

Jason Stormy said he would like to hear from someone who knows and can explain this behaviour as to why they do it.

"I really can't understand the motivation," he said.

"Can't begin to fathom why. Surely they understand the consequences? Would also be interested in a suggested punishment (a realistic one) that fits a crime that is so serious but may not be viewed as such?"
