    What’s going on with these teenagers? I agree that they should do community service. These resources should be used for actual emergencies. And, where are the parents?

    When we see appeals from the Police that young people go missing and couple days later they are found what is done to them or what punishment are they given ? It takes time and resorces to find them.

    before you look to punish who may very well be a victim, you must first answer the question why.

    Hysteria they claim, punish the vulnerable youth with community service, any more brilliant ideas to assist in your noted victim blaming. They are young ladies sometimes being exploited sexually, even within their own homes, maltreatment and violence, and being a child in desperate need and the solution is to punish them. Do we honestly think the police takes you home and case closed, I would hope not. That’s why these absondings automatically involve the Child Care Board.

    Wasn’t a highly respected pastor in Jamaica caught with a teen in an uncompromising position by the police? Our young ladies are being exploited and this is nothing new. When I was in school at 3:00 see the number of big hard back men waiting for their girlfriends? Got into an argument with a class mate, she say she going for her boyfriend and after school a grown man wanted to assault me for a 15 year old. The cars, bikes etc stop going after the victim and deal with the disgusting offender. Has it changed in 2017? Can’t get the police pass and anybody that ain’t there to collect a child charged with loitering or trespassing.

    Have you ever been to the morgue and seen a young lady brutally murdered, throat slit and left breast barely hanging on with multiple stab wounds? Nobody should have to go through that. Do you have daughters, if you do be thankful you are the person you are and this has not crossed your door. They are the children of the soil and deserve better treatment than to suffice for societies victim blaming, where are the offenders who have assisted in the absondings, they are being charged but not to the level to satisfy the general public appetite for justice. They are young,impressionable and gullible. Predators do what they do they prey on insecurities.

    You call the police. You do not hesitate, I am not one to judge as that is sometimes a cry for help. Some are naughty, get caught in material trappings etc,regardless still a minor still against the law.

    Hysteria is when a caucus went missing, it is alleged she was experiencing DV and claimed to have escaped into the canes where she became disoriented. This generated police on an imaginable scale, soildiers, drones, white men on horse back galloping around, accosting an alone ancestor who is a security guard, with their liscenced firearms, that is hysteria in capitals. Selective amnesia? BBT archives is a treasure chest.

    Some see it as escapism but from what? Don’t expect all households have the same morals, values and attributes as yours. Very judgemental and not once using your God given skill of empathy. Wonder why, is it often, what’s happening at home, what type of environment is she in, and being subject to, was she fed, what does her teachers say about her behaviour, where was she, did sexual activity take place, is their need to go straight FMH or QEH, groceries in the house a rash of things but wanna…….why, is the more pressing issue.

    Regardless it is a teenager…. A child….

    Just call the police, they have a team in place that deals with the missing persons and their is a follow up process.

    A youth not returning home for a long period is not victim blaming. That is rubbish.
    What it is is lazy policing: a relative reports a person not home at the expected time; instead of sending an officer to talk to relatives, colleagues, school mates, neighbours and friends they send out a press release which is re-published by the press without an questions asked.
    It is panicing, hysteria. Nothing at all to do with victim-blaming, as it is normally understood.
    There should be a set period before these matters are raised in public. There is risk, but that is life.

    Missing Wha, these “Young women” are their with their boyfriends just chilling, and the parents are too shame to say so, so the next best thing to do is call the police. the problem is that the child is 15 or so , and the mother is 35, and both are out looking fuh de same thing when de weekend comes. some times two cars turn up at de house, de daughter get in one wid she man, and de mother get in de other wid she man too. De morals gone long time ago but we playing that we don’t know. if you was to see for your self just attend some of these secondary school fairs, and see how de school women are dressing, yuh head will just turn, they have on de tightest body wear, hair do, face polish, and more than half of them will leave with their man at the end of the night, and end up at his house for the weekend, and the parents will got the gall to call the police and report them “MISSING”.Cha. I am SMH.

      Oh lawd North Point yuh words fiery fa real. Tek it easy.

  9. Jennifer February 20, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    @Northpoint – Ask yourself WHY it is ONLY black children???? Because we have to be REAL. Take the MORALS part into consideration too.

    • harry turnover February 20, 2017 at 5:49 pm

      Jennifer…. North Point telling the truth. You should see the schoolgirls after their School Sports day at the Stadium coming down Station Hill hugging up,kissing up..some with their School boyfriends ,others with their own boyfriends wid da musty underwear showing….and getting on WORST than the boys…who en got da boyfriends talking bout dem man this and dem man that .
      If I had a girl child that age and after telling her certain things that she should not do like what some of these school women are doing and she still does it bringing shame and stares on me,as soon as she gets 18 she would have to leave MY HOUSE.

  10. Jennifer February 20, 2017 at 6:11 pm

    @Harry T – Don’t get me wrong. I fully agree with you and north point. But why are they like that????

    It is like taking a banana SKINNING IT and burying the skin. Or taking the original computer chip out of the machine and replacing it with an alternate chip.

    Pray tell me why should the Police be investigating sexual promiscuity among the youth or spending countless hours searching for habitual runaway teenagers? Why should the Police be dealing with homeless people begging for food or sleeping on the street? Why should Police turn up at your house because of a non violent domestic dispute between you and a family member or between you and a neighbour? NONE of these are crimes! They are all social or welfare issues all of which fall under the ambit of governmental and non governmental social agencies, including faith based organizations. And by the way, every single one of these agencies operate Monday to Friday 8AM to 4PM as if the social ills they were created to manage cease to exist outside traditional office hours. Mr. Commissioner you and your Officers cannot save the world. Instead, redirect the focus of the Police to its core objective; the prevention and investigation of real crimes and the apprehension and prosecutions of offenders. Let the Church, Child Care Board, Welfare and all the rest of organizations that appear to exists mainly for political exploitation, media photos and enhancements of curriculum vitae get off their tails and do some work.
