    Whenever they are found guilty
    At the place where the crime was committed
    Or any such place as designated and approved

    Record the flogging , live stream it , make sure that cameras are focused on the eyes with each lash.

    If this does not reduce the incidence of Crime in less than 4 months , the Prime Minister should be made to walk the plank.

    luther thorn your suggestion & some of the others indicate that you follow the path of the white slave masters these methods are similar, to the waht whites, punish blacks for disobedience(I have no idea of your educational background, but if you are ofa with African history, & if you know the truth about what was done to black women & men, then you would realize that the behaviour patterns of blacks today by parents & children are due to genetic & psychological programming, (in Bajan vernacular black people heads F**k up) blacks need to know their true history, so they can have a sence of real worth & value, a people who do not know their history, have No pass or Future( we have the white man Story, but not uor history) when will true Black History be taught in our schools, insted of white people LIES,when will it come to an End.

      Carlisle what does any of that drivel have to do with 4 or 5 young black boys totting guns and robbing innocent black people like themselves?

      Or are we genetically and psychologically programmed to rob at gun point and kill. If that were the case this island would be in a state.

      What you posted above is just a bundle of words strung together.

      Your analysis makes no sense at all. Maybe its your head that is f**ked up dude.

      Mind destruction is the crux of why this people behave, dress and act towards each other both local, regional and internationally.
      This will be an issue for a simple minded, self induce blind person to see.

    Mr. Norville , you speak the truth.

    Your comments are worthy and are of high importance.
    Oriens Ex Occidente Lux.

    The youngsters need to be taught a lesson that the parents and the teachers are not teaching.

    Speaking to this crowd is not enough.
    Licks in their arses.
    Surely the white people had some brutal methods but they worked. You dismantled but you have not introduced an effective replacement.

    Time to stop the runaway train first and then it around and steer it in another direction.

      Do you believe that psychological trauma can be passed on from one generation to the next??? Before you answer think of the effects of drugs on varying individuals.

      Why do soldiers receive PTSD TREATMENT???

    Black people lives depends on what the bibles say, God is telling them to do, real black history plays no real part in most black peoples lives , because they carry no room in they minds for it …………
    That’s why our politicians has learnt how to treat and control black people from the white man, keeping our blacks locked in and locked down keeping them focusing on the religious beliefs ………..
    Allow them as many churches as they can put together and the funny names religious groups and that is how they control them selves, just as its done big time in the UK…………………………
