    What kind of parents do these children have?

    That’s a good question Carson.

    The parents do not guide. Its a pity that our young men are wasting their live away. These guys should be at uwi bcc sjpp or somewhere looking to get an education to advance their lives.

    17 and 22 what a waste.

    Another part of the press is reporting how mothers and well wishers were waving goodbye as these children were being led away to jail. It was like an important and pleasant event. One could see mothers smiling as well. What sort of human beings are we breeding in this country. Someone will soon say that the DLP politicians are responsible. Some of these young men are simply following bad company. But killing somebody for money is no big deal….it’s all about money. We have to send a strong message that if you commit such a crime you will do a very long time.

    3rd sun if she has a justifiable reason so to do then that’s her right.

    The double standards that that they are witnessing in this country also has a lot to do with it. A lot of persons, not only the young, are very disillusioned.

    For the people that are commenting implying these young men are guilty; are you formulating your own opinion on something you KNOW or something you HEARD. Because their is a saying believe NOTHING you HEAR and HALF of what you SEE.
