      Ann.....you know how foolish you sound? Did you sit down and think before typing that garbage? No, people need to start acting like humans and not animals. Everything is not politics this is a serious situation.

    This is unacceptable. Other peoples children out there and if anything happens a lot more bad stuff can and will happen. I suggest that the guilty person stay away from the schools with their street problems. Truth be told this country has yet to see what violence really is.

      We have dropped the ball in terms of caring for persons. No longer the village raises the children and some parents are experiencing difficulties in raising their children

        That’s what we do now, blame the village, politicians, teachers, the police and God. But never these waste of time parents. No these jokers are never to blame for unleashing their hooligan and terrorist spawns upon society. Some of these parents need to be locked up with their offspring.

    I think what the government can do is have the squad visit those areas on a monthly basis.
    They must catch those who are doing wrong and charge them.
    Then the government will make money and those idlers would refrain or cut down from doing business there.

      The squad needs to visit daily. Some officers need to be stationed there form 8-5.

        Exactly! The presence of Police Officers could serve as a determent to persons indulging in criminal activites.

    They just came and built that bathroom, fixed that court and put up a fence.....then left the after effects to the Huntums Ghut people. No supervision, no shut off time, no person around to monitor the place and maintain it. Like I said, they just came, did what they wanted, went home to the peace, safety and comfort of their home, and left the problems to the HG community. If there’s not going to be any supervision and order on the court.....that bathroom building don’t need to be there then, because it’s a breeding place for criminal activities. It seems like from the time all those mature men who use to congregate there to play dominoes, left....these young men who now gather there, saw it as an opportunity to turn it into “their block”. It’s not their block! It’s a place where all in the village should feel safe to go and hang out and have fun together.
