How to silence a hoodie

There's a bizarre recruitment ad on the telly for Police Community Support Officers. It's an animation in which various street scenes are played out - a kind of 'day in the life' of a plastic policeman.

The bit that makes me laugh is when the PCSOs approach a group of ASBOs, who are loitering on a street corner somewhere. Plod says - more in sorrow than anger - "Come on now. Other people live around here..."

What exactly do you think the reaction of the hoodies would be to this particular approach?

Would it be:

(a)
"Oh, I'm terribly sorry, officer. How inconsiderate of me. I'll move on now."

or

(b)
A momentary look of incomprehension followed by the flash of a blade.

Answers on a postcard.
