    I agree the violent crime is getting way out of hand and I agree some parents take up for their kids no matter what they do but no matter how hard you try as a parent it is the choice of these kids how they will live their lives. You can teach them right from wrong but you cannot make the choice which one they will choose.

    Does anyone know the meaning of these 3 “tags”, which are being used by groups of youth: ” WPB PBB WSLT ” or any others?

    Maybe it’s time we acknowledge that we are growing and hosting criminals of all ages. If we want to do something to protect innocent citizens and residents, we need to reduce the police response time from “sometime in the next couple hours” to 5 minutes or less. We have over 400 police on a tiny island – how can it take this long? NYC did it decades ago with electric community vehicles. There’s no reason why our cops shouldn’t be out there on Segways, or some such, at the very least, patrolling up and down the heart of our tourism corridor – esp on pay day weekend party nights when 95% of our serious violent crimes happen. This would be a fraction of the cost of running the chopper for a month. The RCIPS needs to do more proactive community protection and less post-altercation clean up.

      If the relevant people simply used protection , this scourge could be reduced.

    How can some of these baby mamas and baby fathers take responsibility for their children when they themselves are not responsible parents ?

    With politicians supporting some of these families for political votes, we are creating a society that one day they will not just be known as delinquents but given the title of “Super Predators” in the Cayman Islands.

    Everybody needs to get together and stop supporting wutlessness regardless if it’s your children, grand children, brother, sister, niece, nephew, aunt, uncle, cousin or friend.

    This kind of senseless behavior has to stop!!! Parents control your children!!! Put the fear of God in them and don’t be afraid to pull out that strap on their backsides! Don’t spare the rod and spoil the child!! Nothing should ever drive someone to do this and those boys having knives on them shows that they had intentions of harming someone. Why would anyone carry a knife on them if you’re not in law enforcement? Only bullies and cowards act that way!!!

    My prayer is that this young man survives and recovers completely and may God strengthen the parents of each of these boys because it can’t be easy on either of you but I pay especially for the dear mother that is having to watch her son fight for his life in the hospital. Fathers…. stay in your children lives and know their whereabouts and hold them accountable for their behavior/actions.

      Prayer is never the answer. While some pray for improvement others pray in celebration of these atrocities. You want to help create a better future for our Island it starts with education not faith. The problem is people put their faith before logic and reasoning.

      If I took of my belt and used it on an adult, they could sue me for assault. How do you think that this should be different in any way for children? Assault by a parent is hardly going to turn a child into a model citizen. The old ways are gone now. There are better ways to raise a child.

        In NO way are we saying that the child should be assaulted for his/her wrong doing! However, there is something called “DISCIPLINE” where a parent teaches a child right from wrong….!!! I do agree that for some parents “the old ways are gone” and that is why we live in a society today that the crime rate is escalating… because the children are left to feel that they can do anything including hurting someone else with NO consequences! That is what is sad…having that kind of mentality. That is what has to change!

    PARENTS: know your children/teenagers.

    PARENTS: Step up to the plate and speak the truth!

    We need to stop giving our children right when they are so terribly wrong!

    Your children are becoming thugs; you know what happens to thugs right?

    One of two things; jail or 6 feet deep in the earth!

    PARENTS: take responsibility for what is yours!

      Unfortunately these type of parents don’t read CNS or cant read at all. We have a lot of them out there who are mirror images of their children.

      We are rapidly descending to 4th world status and at this rate we will be just like other Caribbean islands in our area. Cayman has got to stop granting citizenship to uneducated people and their off springs. Do we really need status for another gardener? Don’t we have enough problem with our own uneducated?

      • Stop blaming the parents says:

        You would be surprised who the parents are. My ex went to jail as a teen for breaking into people’s homes and served a year in prison. He wanted for nothing and his father bought him everything he wanted. He did it to prove to his so called ‘friends’ that he was not this rich boy that was soft. Keep in mind parents are not the only influence in a child’s life. The majority of their time is spent in school and around other children who come from different upbringing. He was the perfect example that coming from a good home, money and private schooling sometimes is not enough. Sometimes it’s not the parent’s fault. Sometimes the child is just effin bad and being around bad company brings that out!

          Agreed. Peers can be as strong of an influence, if not stronger, than parents. This is why the reverse can be true as well. I know siblings who had a horrific single mother but enough strong peers (and church mentors) that the four kids turned out great.

          99.9% of the time Parenting or lack there of is the root cause. If we are being truthful we can admit to seeing it every day.

          Now a days, it appears to be the child raising the parent/s and not the other way around.

          I will not stop blaming those who must first take responsibility; parents!

          If you think for a minute that sending your kid to a private school or spending more money on their education is sufficient, you are wrong, this is just the first half.

          Parents, your children must have your time and effort, your attention and your guidance.

          Those things cannot be bought. It’s also important that parents instil a sense of pride and self-worth in their children; that way they will not succumb to peer pressure.

          You must start at home before you can point fingers at schools and faculty, as well as your Government.

          I went through the entire public education system from the age of 5, I can tell you, bad company is everywhere, not just in the public system; some kids avoid trouble because they are taught better from home!

            Couldn’t agree more, 8:00am!! I also went through the entire public system. Of course I had peers who were wannabe “thugs” and everyone was supposed to “respect” them, but I steered clear because my parents taught me right from wrong and what type of person I should strive to become. If I didn’t have these values instilled from home, I would not have the sense to walk away and could’ve very easily fallen target to the same lifestyle. IT STARTS AT HOME!

      Back it up…how about:

      DON’T become a parent until you are in love and ready to take on that responsibility in a committed and financially secure atmosphere. Too many teen pregnancies, which spawn resentful and absentee parents. Having your first kid by 17 shouldn’t be the adulthood rite of passage that recent NHS Survey confirmed it is. Culturally, it’s not unheard of for mother, daughter, and grandma all to be pregnant at the same time.

      We need a radical change in popular attitudes towards prevention of teen pregnancy and quite a lot more birth control than is currently being made available – if we start now it will still take 15 years to show societal results. We need to stop bringing humans into the world that we don’t want.
