    What type of minds do some young people have? What kind of imbecile would do such a thing? This is no laughing matter. Whoever you are, you need psychiatric help.

      Agreed saw the video and it appeared to be a cigarette lighter used by the culprit who also appeared to be a school boy, so take a guess as to what he is smoking probably during and after school hours. As the old people would say he want a good cut arse.

    They are not enough words in the dictionary that could be used to describe the tackless uncouth and dangerous act. School children today gone to the dogs. But I’m not only blaming just children cause I find it that in this 2018 parents afraid to discipline their children.

    Somebody needs to make that boy understand that the girl could have been seriously and permanently injured, or she could have died. Setting another human being on fire is never funny. It is never a joke. I would suggest extensive counselling for the boy and his parents (family counselling). The girl should receive counselling also, because even though this newspaper notes “no one was injured in the incident.” I believe that the girl and the schoolmates who witnessed this must have suffered some emotional trauma.

    Stop blaming the children. Why? Because they are children and guidance should have begun much earlier. Parents MUST take responsibility for the actions of their children. Instill some common sense and discipline. Stop saying things like “I can’t believe this”. It happened. It’s been happening and most adults simply place their heads in the sand until the next incident. We have caused this and the chickens are coming home to roost.

      All the instilling and kids will still use their own minds to do foolishness. You can be the greatest parent, but when peer pressure hits, or you want to impress your friends to be the cool guy, all that instilling can ultimately go out the window. A minister can raise a Godly child, but that child can still go out and have sex before marriage.

    All I gone say, if somebody did that to my daughter, the police won’t have to probe/ investigate. They better get to that young man before I do and that’s the end of the story. Guarantee for the rest of his life he would never make that mistake again.

    We need to be part of the solution and not the problem! Criticizing and using poisoning words will not help our situation.
    It only proves that we are no different from them. Children are getting children, so it is difficult for parents to pass on principles that we never learnt or cultivated! Our children have very little positive influences in their lives. So they cling to the gadgets that we provide and associate with a crowd that make that feel validated! Our men are absent from the households. We no longer go to church or send our children so that we can be part of a family who prays, encourages and motivates! We all need to do better and try to love and care for our nation’s children! Pray! Pray! Pray! Prayer changes things! It changed me! Blessings!!
