Bring back the cane

DR SPOCK was looked up to by parents in the 1960s.

His advice was not to spank children as it would breed violence and give them an inferiority complex.

Fast forward to the 21st century where we witness shootings, murders, domestic violence and other high crimes.

The jails and courts are filled with criminals and prosecutions. Record numbers of teachers, emergency workers and police are assaulted almost on a daily basis.

It's time to bring back the cane. Everyone can see that Dr Spock's advice hasn't worked. We were sold a pack of lies by the "professionals" who should have known better.

Was their intention to case chaos in society?

When you compare the discipline and crime data of years gone by, wherein murders were few, and home invasions weren't heard of, our present society looks like it's in a social meltdown.
