Home Office: Nerdy Kids are Dangerous


Is your child spending too much time with their computer games? Are they interested in computer programming and do they spend all their time chatting on Facebook? According to the Home Office, they might be at risk of being drawn into Serious and Organised Crime.

A Home Office guide released today aims to help the police, schools and voluntary groups identify individuals who might be at risk of being drawn into criminality.  Apparently it’s their “specialist skills” we need to worry about. The Home Office claim that young people who show signs of interest in computers are increasingly being targeted and recruited by criminal gangs.

Watch out: “early behaviours could include modifications to games or software and sharing online.”

They don’t all turn into Zuckerbergs…
