  1. These are criminals because of their current situations. How do you take them out of jail and educate them ? Even the US can’t deal with that problem ..Poverty breeds criminality and until you can effectively deal with poverty society will have to live with these challenges.

  2. Fully agree with you on this. Yes,Uncle David is on record when he declared that young people should not be in jail for stealing cell phones but be in school or other institutions of learning where they can further their education or perfecting their skills and that stealing cell phones would be easy peasy.

  3. I know this kid …he was one of those who that idiot release…he was jail cause he stole clothes from a chinee store owner on regent and camp….thanks grranger for monitoring those pests.

  4. Just some of the PNC Youths don’t go too hard on them uncle David is in office now
    we can do just like the old days.
