    Another stabbing involving school children. It is time the police and Education Officers launch a search operation on school children. In addition, mental detectors should be introduced on the buses and schools. The parents should also be charged and the offending child. This non-sense ould stop and it ould avoid somebody getting kill again. Let us not forget the incident at Foundation Girls a student lost her life.

      Oh boy. We really must thank the U.S for being there to be blamed for all of our social ills.

    The thing is, school children are still use geometry sets in the school. So keeping sharps objects away is going to be difficult. I don’t know why they seem to be so angry all the time that they always have to resort to stabbing at the slightest issue.

    When I read some of your comments, I am left to wonder how many of you are thinking with your brains. Are you telling the world that Barbadians are a bunch of followers who are incapable of thinking for themselves? Are these children residing in the US? Is the US parenting these children? I know it is easy to play the blame game to avoid taking responsibility for your actions. However, if Barbadians want to reclaim this Nation as the gem of the Caribbean, they need to to stop blaming others and look internally to diagnose the problem. If you think the young people are being influenced by the US, then you need to censor what is being played in Barbados. Stop blaming others and fix your problem. You are making Barbadians look like a bunch of followers without brain cells.
