I believe the children on the street display the first symptom of sleep deprivation – aggressive, antisocial, withdrawn, hyperactive, unable to control or regulate behaviour.

Steve, I am with you, willing to help but we need clarification:
Are we talking week-end? Holidays periods? Or any day?
Sleep research suggests that a teenager needs between nine and 10 hours of sleep every night. This is more than the amount a child or an adult needs. Yet most adolescents only get about seven or eight hours. Some get less.
Regularly not getting enough sleep leads to chronic sleep deprivation.
This can have dramatic effects on a teenager’s life, including reduced academic performance at school.
One recent US study found that lack of sleep was a common factor in teenagers who receive poor to average school marks. This is why I said “sleep in a good bed, but no activities”.

Spot on Mark and I am 100% against rewards for bad behaviour and ignoring the good. More activities and more parents would think: “Let them on the streets, they will have fun and we will have peace.”
It is time for a curfew, this will demonstrate that we care for those kids.
After time kids still loose should be collected and put in a safe place, but not to play, to sleep.

Cradle! Why such name? The kids on the street, for the majority, are not babies. Many have been initiated which means they are adult members of the community.
The ages of the person being initiated varies between language groups, but usually occur between the ages of 10 and 16 years.

I agree Chris – a bail? How much was the bail? Or is it free, no ties attached?
At 22 you are not a kid, you know very well what you are doing ad penalties should apply even if it is the first offense.
May be it is time to review the NT Legislation / Bail Act.
We need a system by which offenses are linked to a punishment, like the demerit points for driving offenses.
Court should be only if there is doubt of the guilt.
