IN response to the article about McDonald’s introducing a ban for teenagers during certain parts of the day and week, I think they are doing this because they are not getting enough support from the police – who in turn are powerless in a lot of the situations that happen.

I congratulate McDonald’s Bradshawgate store for going against the apathetic norm and acting bravely even if it is not part of the restaurant’s “company policy”.
