    With the kinds of money been spent on security this is what we’ve been getting for how long now
    What we need is a good surveillance system that focuses on every inch of the school and have a couple of police officers monitor it in the school who is going to do what they have to do with these want to be gangsters and I guarantee it would be cheaper than what they are paying for nothing and our school will be safer does it make sense to pay for security and they can’t stop a fight ?

    people usually become a product of their environment pitch in some frustration and we will have a human time bomb: will be good to sit more often with the young people and let them Describe their social and personal concerns then set about correcting such matters: watching what going on and doing nothing is no longer working: our political leadership pays more attention to tourism & foreign investments than the now generation: some how the focus is balancing the Financial books while social living down the drain in the British Virgin Islands

    They need to implement hasher punishment on these punks fighting every minute at the high school. There is no accountability for them that's why they keep fighting like a couple of animals. STRUPS.
