    Listen! Society is angry and demand justice, but beyond that, we need to find ways of reaching our young people, so that this kind of thing doesn’t take place anymore. I often wonder what would incentivized these two young men to take precious human life for a mere piece of gold? And had these young men been taught the value and importance of human life from the get go, perhaps, this kind of thing wouldn’t have happened?

Nevertheless, rot in jail isn’t the correct appoach to the problem as one blogger below has suggested, because we are talking about the senseless waste of youthful potentiality, which quite possibly could have transform or nation, society and perhaps our world, in positive ways, had the course been chartered differently.

    You what really ticks me off about us, WE BAJAN, we believe in conformity too much. Murders will only cease to be a plague when this world comes to an end. Mankind has always lived by the precepts that if you maliciously and wilfully take another person’s life, you pay that debt by having your taken from you by society by the way of a justice system.
    Here it is now that our justice system has become null and void because of dictates from the so-called international bleeding hearts that are telling us, we can no longer carry out the execution of convicted murderers.
    These same bleeding hearts are complete dumb mutes who says nothing at all or protest when murderers are being executed well in excess of of ten years and as much as twenty years after being found guilty and sentenced to death, but says to us that it is inhumane to carry out the death sentence after seven years based mainly on the Pratt and Morgan case.
    For those who have had their death sentences commuted to life imprisonment, let that be the finished point and the resumption of execution for convicted and condemned prisoners enforced.
    Just remember that all of the long talk did not deterred Trinidad from executing NINE, in one morning just a few years ago.
    As I said earlier, it will not stop murders, but it will be a deterant to some who has the notion that “I will kill you and go in prison and sit down because they don’t hang prisoners no more”.
    Are we going to wait for a parliamentarian’s mother, father, child, sister or brother, to die at the hands of these criminals, before it is said enough is enough?

    One could again utter the phrase that, common sense is not that common at all.
    imagine anyone of us going about our daily business ,doing what we suppose to be doing to earn enough to feed our family ,and because some scum bags noticed you are wearing something that attracts them ,so they decide that you will have to killed in order that they may have it. Why?
    I don’t know about other young men, but as a youngster I would always see others with items that I liked ,but never in my wildest dreams would it cross my mind to do harm or kill to have them . I would hope that through hard work I would be able to dress like a fella , or wear the type of jewelry he wore ,never ever once thinking that what is his could be mine if I killed him.
    The idea of someone stealing or killing for jewelry to take it to ne of these places that will buy it, for much ,much less than it cost has contributed to this type of behavior in many or most cases.
    Greed is a funny thing ; And to all those who would say that these able bodied young men are a product of the systemic job situation ; that two is a bunch of “jobby” . These are young men that plan together ,rob together, and deserve to be in the same 5 ft. cell together for the rest of their lives without any chance of parole.
