What do you do? anyone could be a nonce, your next door neighbor, friend 
school crossing lady these pervs don't have it written on their foreheads.

Most kids are pretty clued up these days anyway, if the cops want to take them 
to the station (which they can) they should say "No we will go to my school 
so that a teacher knows about this".

Nope, anyone of any age may be made to turn their pockets out, what your 
getting confused about is that a child under 10 years old cannot be convicted 
of a crime. Plus these days drugs to a certain degree are on the back burner 
these little sods are carrying knives and god knows what these days.
