Students remanded

Two male students who were arrested and charged in connection with a disturbance at a secondary school in St Michael on Wednesday, November 22, appeared before Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court today.

The 16-year-old, who has been charged with wounding with intent, was remanded to prison, to reappear in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on December 22.

The 15-year-old, who has been charged with inflicting serious bodily harm, was remanded to the Government Industrial School (DODDS) to return to Juvenile Court on November 29.

During the disturbance at the school, a cutlass was used to slash a 16-year-old student several times on the right hand.

      I don’t feel bad for them they had enough sense to know what they were doing now let them take the punishment.

    I totally agree with this decision by the magistrate.

    Both their asses in custody until December 22nd.

    This lawlessness must be eradicated.

    Kudos to the Magistrate for sending the signal that this ignorant behavior would not be tolerated in Barbados.

      I tell you this, sending these young people to jail will not change or deter anyone . Going to Dodds will soon be seen as a badge of honor. The underlying/ROOT cause MUST be tackled. They also need to start building another jail.

    @Jennifer: Since you think it will be seen as ‘a badge of honor’ you should join the honorable group of citizens and go to Dodds. We need to remember the juvenile detention center is named Dodds as well.

      Hear this GG, I understand you insite and the lack thereof also. Have you ever wondered why black children of the slave trade rebel in this way all over the earth???? All this saga can be fixed, but the powers that be do not want to fix it. To fix this problem will start another one, so it is best to let things be and sacrifice the lambs. I listened intently to a SCHOOL CHILD one day talking about how he went to juve and was currently on bond, which he liked but which was soon coming to an end. And you know what – he was intending to go back. This whole black thing can be fixed, it is like being in a wilderness and going in circles when the freedom is just over the hill. I trust u see and hear what I have said.

        GG – one of these days when u got time, listen very CAREFULLY to the LYRICS of THE HONOURABLE BOB MARLEY. It is important not to get distracted. And u will see why he was taken down.

    These children are in no doubt doing some bad stuff, but I not will lay all the blame at their feet. This government have colluded to deceive this people via a variety of faux, funnelled systems devoid of this people true history resulting in a barrage of social, psychological and spiritual problems for both adults and children alike. Especially dysfunctional behaviour. I guess if it was not that then it would have been terror.

    I want no part of bad behaved children..glad as u know what I int got none. Thank you Lord!!

    The judge should order one of his finger to get chopped off the same way. That will be justice. Let me see how he is going to feel.

    Jennifer I am sorry, but I find it hard to understand your posts. Pay attention to your punctuation. Try using some commas and full stops. No offence meant but I would like to understand what you are trying to say.

  14. Rodney Callender November 26, 2017 at 3:34 am

    Sorry Jennifer that post was not meant for you. My deepest apologies. I am so sorry.

    You know ..i have grown weary of people blaming the government for every situation in the society…parents need to damm well parent, the extended family need to exist again and the village need to, dispute all the modernisation and so called progress play their part instead of leaving it to government policies and teachers to do their job.
    I along with the extended family and the village(god parents, church members and real friends) all played vital rolls in seeing the development of my 3 children..20,18,and this day no issued. We are by no means privileged or poor private schools ..springer lodge and st. Leonard’s. Address Bush Hall, Bayland, Vauxhall and Kings village…yet amid it all they have achieved..2 in college with excellent GPS.what did I Do?…simple …MY PART..if every did like wise…watch the transformation…sometime the solutions are not as complex as we make them..stop passing the damm buck that’s all.
