    Too many young people are going to jail too young,I don’t believe placing him in prison this young to become a man’s bitch is the
    Answer,help them,there is a plight among young men,the church needs to arise and target them on the blocks,shops,schools,there also needs to be Social Workers in the schools,who can identify problems in their behaviour and recommend ways of correcting problems with behaviour.
    The focus in schools can’t just be education, you can have volunteer programmes that teach, boxing, cooking,baking,drama,art,so that students who may not be academically inclined can still feel a sense of worth and value.
    However I encourage us to keep praying for the young men of this nation.
