Have your say
The 16 and 17 year old are nothing to do with the burglary at Dalton. They were arrested for a burglary on the 9th Nov at a house in Barrow.
The 16 & 17 year old who committed the crime and will do so again will probably get suspended sentences. They should at least get the same as the guy who sold it on. Just because they are 16 & 17 they should not get off with it. I think it is about time that juveniles should either be put in detention centers or offered to go into the forces send them to Afghanistan for a year if they return they will become men and respected.
