Schoolboy charged

A 14-year-old schoolboy appeared in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court today charged with the offence of serious bodily harm.

He was granted bail by Magistrate Laurie-ann Smith-Bovell in the amount of $1,000 with one surety and is due to re-appear in court on June 28.

This follows an altercation at a rural school on Tuesday in which another 14-year-old male student was struck in the head.

The injured student was taken to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance where his condition is listed as stable.

    When you do not know the full story it is easy to make comments like the ones above. This is one case that should not be tried on social media. I do not think the report is correct though. Inthink the actual sum was higher. But I am sure the magistrate was guided by the information presented. What I will say to those of you who are demanding drastic punishment is that ‘ what in catch you in pass you’.

    This is a perfect opportunity to send a message about the violence in schools. The children can’t be flogged anymore because that promotes violence yet they are violent to one another. What’s causing it then? They’re just using the professionals’ analysis to their advantage. What about that youngster in the hospital and his parents? I’m glad my children are out of school because I shudder to think what I would have done if the victim was my child.

    Do you know that the boy who is in the hospital pulled a knife on the other boy who is on bail? That the accused was defending him self against a knife attack? Stop condemning him because you don’t know the facts.

    There is more in the mortar than the pestle. The whole facts are not known so do not condemn the accused before hearing the truth. What was the victim doing with a knife at school?
