Jean(eanjay) BS: Youth expelled from train-no ticket! (222* d) RE: BS: Youth expelled from train-no ticket! 17 Dec 11

I find the sweeping generalisations that are being made here incredible. I am in the UK and as a teacher I have met many, many wonderful young people and responsible parents.

The ticket incident was unfortunate and none of us know the full details. However, whatever was right or wrong with how it was handled by the ticket inspector and whatever was right or wrong with the response from the young man .... none of that excuses the actions of the person who forcibly removed the young man from the train. Some people are, on the one hand, condemning the young people of today as thugs etc. but are, on the other hand, applauding thuggery in this incident - it does not make sense.
