Nanny State is coming for your chooooldrin

Children to be vetted for antisocial acts – 24 Jan 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Children as young as 3 are to be screened for signs of antisocial behaviour which could identify whether they are likely to become future criminals.

What exactly are these anti-social behaviours?
[quote]Last night the New Zealand Council for Civil Liberties chairman, Michael Bott, expressed concern that the plan would take the state further into private family matters.

“We may be encouraging a climate of fear where the state is looking into the private realm to find problems where there are none,” he said.[/quote]

I don”t like the sound of “interventions”. The most dreaded words in new Zealand are likely to be “Hello, we’ve come to talk about your chooooldrin”
