  • Why can they not be named, They committed a crime and the whole town should be made aware of who is doing it. They were not to young to rob this person.

  • Bad luck folks its the law. Youth records are sealed. I hats to side with the system but its for good reason because you wouldn't be punished for life because of a stupid thing you did as a kid. And also to protect them from people like you who would like to publicly shame flog and throw rotten veg at them.

  • Robbery a silly thing you do when as a kid? What a daft statement. Typical liberal view. Punish them so that they remember what is right from wrong and there is a deterrent,if that doesnt work then harsher punishments will be required.

  • Time for the Law to be changed for people like this they should be named and shamed. I wonder what their parents are doing about this. Naming and shaming maybe the only way to stop all this because all they are going to get is a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again

  • Why not turn the flogging into a sponsored charity event for Children in Need? Nick Conrad, Chief of Norfolk Police, could oversee the flogging, whilst Phil Gormley of BBC Radio Norfolk could do a live commentary. It would also be a good opportunity for Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk Stephen Bett and his new partner Police Commissioner Richard Jewson to promote their new police plan called....'they haven't noticed so keep everything the same'.
