  1. Just suspended school, he should be somewhere locked away pending an investigation, no way he should be at his parent’s home

  2. Sad events!
    The attack on the mental health advocate lady reminds me of the shooting involving a doctor lady @The Camp on factory rd

  3. It is full time that these perpetrators be dealt with severely when caught. Their violent acts traumatized the family members, hence the family should have some say as to how to deal with the assailant. Both parties (victim & family) require justice.

  4. Up to now, the principal from Clare Hall can’t report the brutal attack on the tiny 13 yr girl by the tall and strong youth.
    Sickening.. 😡😡😡

  5. That’s why crime is so easily committed. The punishments are just too weak. No fear, no hesitation, don’t have to think twice, then they sit in 1735 and complain about everything. They need to bring the Skeritt lifestyle back for these kids, but this time in the form of a Booth camp with the Army in full control.

  6. With all due respect the boy was attacked first by the student and he retaliated by stabbing him with the scissors. Other students said he was bullied on a regular basis by this student and had had enough. I’m not saying the stabbing is ok but when you bully or torment others one day they will retaliate

  7. Now I understand as Victor explain this child should not get a severe punishment it is self-defense and I hope that things result in a fast and in the best way possible the one that did the stabbing was being terrorized he got frustrated and retaliated so how the law is going to relate to that one? Not saying I am instigating violence but mental health is very important bullying should be a crime that is worthy of severe punishment from the school level and in society
