    I find that some of these journalist. In Barbados like you to buss your brain. Now I think that the person who get stab is a male because of the name. The writer didn’t say if he is a male or female,also they didn’t say if he was stab by a female or a male. They like you to buss your brain.

      You need to go again and read what the writer is saying. It never said HE was stabbed about his body. If it was he, you would know that he is a male. A student of the cave hill campus of the University of the westindies was stabbed multiple times about his body. You tell how would you know if the person is male or female.

      No where did the writer mentioned he. You need to read what was mentioned in the article.

      I think that you is missing my point. I was not talking about where he get stab. I know that he got stab about his body.

        Angus Benn. What’s your beef? Take time to think before going off on a delusional rant. The report states the obvious even though placing the reader deeper into oblivion surrounding the motive of the “attack” –Prehaps no eye witnesses were to be had.

        p.s take the time to read thoroughly.

      HIS = he . Suggesting that it’s a male. Had it been a female it would have read HER.

    maybe just maybe some of the words contained in the final paragraph will clear up the gender of the person stabbed, “Licorish was stabbed on HIS hand & right side. HE was taken………

      @Harry, my thoughts, too but I gave in to believing that the article was edited after the early comments.

    BUT what about the gist of the story… this can’t have been over the last piece of macaroni pie or the last copy of a library book!

    That sentence definitely says male to me, but, maybe that’s just my interpretation!!!!

    The article clearly mentioned that it was a male that suffered injuries without question.What surprises me is that the people who are responding to the article are more concerned about gender than the fact that it was”A stabbing at UWI”. Lets not loose focus on the shadow that can be placed on the University.

    Sometimes I think all the weirdos got sent to Barbados. You know how you used to have prison colonies? Well Bdos is nut colony. A young person, male or female, gets stabbed and the debate is about semantics. Where have you gone, Gladstone Holder, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you …
