  1. Drugs and more drugs and gangster style coupled with lost opportunities or lack there of of are the chief culprits.

    1. That is not the problem, lack of proper upbringing in the home is more like it. Parents would rather spend money on the latest gadget or fashion clothing than clothes for church. They could find money to buy costumes for carnival but not church. Lastly the children are just following in the footsteps of their parents. Curse and fight amongst themselves, so if you plant corn how do except to reap yam.

  2. Another to be filed under the “unsolved” caption? This wave of murders of young men by their contemporaries, can only gang related. What steps are being taken by a “gang task force” to flush out these bad elements? This problem has to be viewed as a threat to national stability,as it affects a world view, vis-a-vis how the island wishes to be seen by prospective visitors.

  3. These are tough times no doubt fueled by the unemployment and drug trade. However, they youngers know nothing about hard work and sacrifice and industriousness . Over consumption and greed. are part and parcel of the problem. Politicians build basketball court but it is just a band aid solution to the problem.

  4. What is my country coming to?And what are these so-called Leaders both in power and in opposition doing about it?Come on people,it’s no good saying these people only kill their kind,it’s affecting us all.We are going down the path of Jamaica and Trinidad here and nobody seems to want to grab the bull by the horns and do something.We want Tourists to come here,and this does not make good reading in London,Toronto,New York or Washington.

    1. Govt must do their part and more important parents need to do their part as well.If you bring up a child without discipline and boundaries,society would be rewarded with lawless adults,lacking morals ,,discipline and respect for societal norms.Very important to note a child’s personality is mostly established by age 5.Parents discipline your kids bring them up in the ways of the Lord.

  5. We need to accept Jesus as saviour from sin. The grim deeper is seeking souls for hell. His time is getting shorter so this sort of thing will increase unfortunately. We need to view each day as possibly our last one alive.
