News. Concern growing over teenage thugs..."I think the boy's getting keen on sport!..He said he'd like a baseball bat for Christmas!" 28 October, 2005.'
Reference Number: DCDL-0000351
The scene is the kitchen of an ordinary New Zealand household. Mother is working at the table while father lounges nearby with an empty beer can at his feet. A baby and another child play on the floor. Into the room strolls a large teenager plugged into earphones, wearing dark glasses and sloppy clothes and smoking a cigarette. His mother wonders hopefully if he is becoming interested in sport as he has asked for a baseball bat for Christmas. The implication is that a baseball bat can be used for less peaceful activities than baseball. Refers to concern over violent teenage behaviour.
