AG disturbed over report of nine-year-old with criminal ambitions

Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs Adriel Brathwaite today warned that the responsibility for parenting this country’s youth could not be left to the mass media.

The stern warning came in response to a disturbing report Brathwaite said he received this week of a nine-year-old boy who said he wanted to grow up and “kill as many people as possible” because “those are the people you see at the front of the newspaper”.

“We are allowing televisions to raise our children. We are giving children these video games with lots of shooting and cursing and then we wonder why this feel this connect to the gun and we wonder why they don’t have any respect . . . for human life,” he said.

 

Addressing the 130th anniversary church service for the Registration Department held at the Abundant Life Assembly this morning, Brathwaite criticized the media for perpetuating negative images of the society and said that it was the responsibility of individuals in the Registration Department and the wider public to highlight the positive being done in society.

“We have a responsibility to let these young people know that there is good in our society, so that instead of saying, ‘he [the nine year-old] wants to kill as many people as possible, he would say, ‘I want to work for the Lord [or] I want to work for charity’,”  the Attorney General suggested.

“We have a responsibility to save these young people, to take back this society of ours . . .  . Each of you have to make it your mission to do what you can to save all our young people,” he stressed.

      I concur . The AG , CJ, COP ,judiciary have to get tougher. This is not a cliché. Gunmen should get mandatory 25 years plus sentences. Police must be more proactive within the law. The kid gloves the AG wears must come off. We are in a fight with a group of violent youth determined to get guns, shoot whoever gets in their way and traffic in illegal drugs. Their young parents are as threatening as their offspring. We are in a struggle for our country’s existence as a civilized society. I don’t want to hear no stories about a nine year old lets get cracking on his parents and the savage gun youth. Law abiding citizens outnumber the lawless. Lets support the police and crack down on criminals especially the gunmen before we lose Barbados.

      Well said, make that a priority for the next government ask. Ms Mottley what is her plan to combat the gun Cabal ask for a definitive plan.
      Ask her to appoint a no nonsence AG who is not gonna pussy foot with these GUNMAN. Also make illegal gun trafficking a life sentence with out parole and hard labor.
      Make the purveyors of this social porn pay a heavy price with no capitulation take the narrative and country back.Also make the family pay for the upkeep of prisoners who use guns, economics hardship is also a powerful weapon in the fight.

    maybe if the powerful, prominent leaders says it the parents/ guardians will believe it and go about change
    these children’s mind are being negatively altered by the fast food lifestyle they are constantly fed originating from the home environment and enhanced by secondary sources

    when will society learn?

      Well said. That is because the church is the problem in the first place. There to keep THE LOST SHEEP LOST. No truth what so ever is in them. This is what the white man gave this people and still they hang onto it. They so dumb they will not even research their own religions and suppose to be edicated. What dunces. So we can expect many more like this youth. And NONE of them churches AIN’T holy either. serpent habitat.

    I can’t stand he. He is not trustworthy in his speeches. Every time he speaks for whatever reason he questionable in his facts. He said previously that jail is not the answer for the gun tuting guys. He is a waste of time in that position. With so much violence day after day he has not yet take a stand on how this country should move forward in handling the violence. He is somebody puppet but I can’t figure out who’s yet.

    Remember Owen called him an idiot on the floor of Paliament and he continues to prove him right. He usually speaks through Mount gay and even drives through it and then drives through major stops and write off cars. Or when he feeling sexy describe women parts to them in the most vulgar way. Or describe them in the most condescending way when the go to see him on business and his price is beneath their dignity. An embarrassment for an Attorney General..

    Is this joker for real? He has given comfort to killers in Barbados, making it known that their own lives will be preserved under his watch.
    Under his watch, we have seen a proliferation of guns and gun related crimes. There has been an increase in citizen inspired executions. No bicyclist, motorcyclist, PSV drivers and many motorists pay any respect to the highways and traffic laws of this country.
    Under his watch, we have adopted a Wild West community.
    Under his watch, he has Nationalised Crime and Violence.
    And this dear fellow is now disturbed? A sign that a general election is looming.

    I remember a conversation with a young lad years ago ,he told me he wanted a job that paid lots of money.The only job I have known him to have was in the drug industry. Then I could tell of another, no family mine that I tried every thing paying for his books,fees, doing every thing when mother was not paying attention.to keep him in school one day he said to me he did not want to go to school, he wanted to be a groom. His end I was told,out in the water coming home from a boating adventure. Yes some do make up their minds from small what they want to do.
