The First Youth Crime Commissioner Resigns

Paris Brown
To start off, I’ve never even heard of a ‘Youth Crime Commissioner’ but the appointment of Paris Brown has been an embarrassing affair for all the parties involved. What gets me is why was she appointed in the first place because she’s surely not the best our generation can offer? And it’s not like we’re getting enough positive press these days, what with the London riots and about a gazillion pictures of drunk students partying in the streets splashed all over the papers (DailyMail especially) with the headlines ABSOLUTE DISGRACE! The introduction of a well-educated articulate 17 year old with a passion to make a difference could have placed doubt in the minds of those believing  all teenagers are thick, drugged-up sex addicts  roaming the streets every night with a 2 litre bottle of cider in one hand and a knife in the other. Instead they appoint this girl – suggested to be racist and homophobic and stupid enough to brag about her drug and alcohol consumptions on Twitter, in the run up to her appointment. Way to perpetuate an already negative generalisation of our generation (!) If they do appoint another person (she recently resigned) then I hope it will be someone who fully deserves it and has worked hard for it.
