    People need to stop making excuses for these criminals including the Minister. Most of us have been socially isolated and we are not out there chopping people up. These are violent actions most time drug related and not really from anyone owing a dealer money, unless it’s a lot of money. Most times it is because drugs were stolen by a drug addict.

    we need to speak up on this. if the entire community worked together to shun and oust perpetrators of these kinds of senseless acts of violence, then retaliation would be less of a fear. we need action from the bottom up- to show these criminals that can’t hide.
    bless this woman, i hope she is able to make a recovery. but i also feel sorry for the people who committed this act. they’ll have to live with this knowledge for the rest of their lives.

    I have to agree with Lion and for a group of men to attack a women is just beyond belief. I too am so tired of the excuses being offered these young men. Gangster wannabe’s is what I call them, ship them off to see what real gang life is all about with some hard core gangs worldwide, they wouldn’t last five minutes. Get a life, get a job and start contributing to society instead of complaining how wrongly done you have been. Most of these males are under the age of twenty five and belief me they don’y have a clue what hardship is all about.

  5. Oh,I see now says:

    If we do not make an example and at the same time set a precedent with this type of violent home invasion then like everything it will become the blasé norm.We do need to bring back the DP.
