    This seems to be a new trend where school children is resorting to violence as a means of dealing with differences. They action reflect the wider Society. In addition, it reflects broken homes, extreme parental negligence, the poor behaviour of adults.

    A very disturbing trend is exhibited in the precinct of the law courts, by adults women, on the appearance of accused males on serious charges. The strong support and encouragement along with the theatrical spectacle coming from the crowd assembled in the Court yard, which prompt a Magistrate to rebuke this kind of behaviour with consequences if it persist.

    What kind of guidance and direction our children are exposed to in the respective households? Adults are sending the wrong message to the minds of to young people. Adults need to monitor their behaviour and ensure the right examples are set.

    Most black west Indians, have no regards for the british, way of life and political back ground ,which our great and grand parents survived on. many surviving past 100 years. Instead the acceptance of Uncle Sam’s, Ghetto and Hood , behaviour and attitude, as monkey see, monkey do. we have so deal with it.

    This is the type of behaviour , you see in schools across America, get a gun get 10 guns ,shoot teachers and students , and they are not terrorist , good old Christians kids. teachers scold kids for being bad behave, ask to see the parents, or, kids go home complain to they parents, parents go to the schools and assaults the teachers. this is where we are at.
    There is good and bad, kids entering school ,they knows this ,why decent law abiding bajans family with kids , have to put up with riff raff, just , sue the families having these bad kids., throw them out of school.
