    Wow, these kids are getting more and more violent. Second for the week and it is only Thursday. Very sad.

      And from the comments of some of the parents we can understand why the children have behavioural problems. It ain’t going to get better with the attitude of some of the parents. Let’s not forget “The seed does not fall far from the tree”.

    When are we going to admit we need a functional youth service here? Not the church, not government. Actual persons with interests towards the guidance of the youth regarding conflict resolution, value of life and alternatives to violence

    We need programmes which focus on developing transferable coping skills for life beyond course; Where struggling teens can uncover and realize their potential and abilities as they transition into adulthood. Just throwing them into a criminal system is not the answer.

    Well….well…well…l think the authorities in this little lsland call Barbados need to get real. The time has come that school children need to be given security checks before entering schools across Barbados but more so those schools that display a lot of bad behavior…And with so many irresponsible women having children… Many of them don’t stop to check on their children to see if they are taking to school items that are not related to learning…. When do we expect to see guns in school??? It sounds harsh but we know that Barbados has a way of copying a lot of bad habits…. Things they see on social media… We have to be proactive and not wait until the Horse has bolted.

    Come on B’dos get a grip. This young rough-neck should be charged with attempted murder- plain and simple.

    The kids are all seeing the ghetto mentally and attitude , being displayed by they parents, so they themselves enact the same. we need in Barbados the politicians to do something to stop all this madness, but where are they.

    Look across the waters , and see the behaviour of the young people, very psychotic and suicidal, school kids behaving more like terrorist, wanting to massacre they teachers and school friends they hate. this is where technology is taking us.

    Plain and simple attempted murder should be the charge. There must be some form of deterrent that would show other violent offenders that this sort of behavior will never be tolerated . It is extremely difficult to fathom why a school age youngster would leave his home packing a knife or any weapon when going to school unless the intent is already there to do harm to another.
    This seem to be the norm these days. The thought that at sixteen years of age this young man has decided that using a weapon of any sort was the only way he would settle a confrontation says a whole lot about the direction some of our youth are taking.
    It is a very testing time to be a parent raising young kids in Barbados like many other countries right now. There is crime/violence everywhere ,being committed by young people.
    If one visit the Fair child street’s bus stand on any given school day and witness the conduct/ behavior, cursing and swearing among school children it, is shameful . They should be a Police presence in that bus stand at all times .There is too much loitering, which often ends up with a confrontation when workers are trying to get home and these undisciplined kids who could have had access to school buses earlier decide to jump over the barriers and seem proud to do it denying older folk and tired employees who in most cases had been in line for an hour or more.
