Schoolboys caught with offensive weapons

A report has been ordered into the lives of two 16-year-old boys who admitted to taking offensive weapons to school for protection.

Jamili Dontre’ Bynoe of No. 70 Cane Vale, Christ Church pleaded guilty to possession of a scissors without a reasonable excuse, while Jaquan Rashawn Bowell of Grazettes New Road, St Michael admitted to having a flick knife without lawful excuse.

The offences where committed at Richmond Gap, St Michael yesterday.

Police responded to a report of an altercation among a group of students and the two boys, who reportedly came to the school armed, were searched.

Bynoe told the police that he had the scissors to protect himself from other students while Bovell said he had the knife to protect himself because some guys in the area were constantly interfering with him.

In addition to ordering reports on them, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant imposed a daily 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew on the teens and warned them against taking weapons to school.

The two, who each posted $1,500 bail,  are to return to the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court  on December 8 and have also been warned not to associate with each other.

    They ordered reports on the boys. Am I to believe that the necessary counselling will follow. Are they going to check the homes of the boys and find out what is happening there and who is neglecting the care of their children?
