  1. So the solution to juvenile vandalism is a fence, if only we knew this decades ago

    Any more bright ideas in that head of yours minister Matthew

    What is it with these ministers and fences I can never understand

    • BUT THE COURT IS FENCE, BUT PART OF IT WAS BROKEN DOWN BY BUSH, THE CHILDREN AND ADULTS WHO DON’T WANT TO USE THE GATE, SHORT CUT, JUST WALK ON THE FENCE. I GUESS WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW, WHERE IS THE GATE KEEPER, HE NO LONGER HAVE A JOB, IT WAS SUCH A NICE PLACE WITH TABLE AND SEATS AND A PLAYING GROUND FOR THE KIDS, NOW ITS ALL GRASS AND THE NEW BASKETBALL, WHERE ARE THE SEAT THAT WAS TO BE REPLACE, THE PEOPLE OF RADIO RANGE NO LONG CARE WHAT HAPPEN, CAUSE WHEN THEY SPENT THEY MONEY AND HELP KEEP IT NICE. ITS DESTROY BY PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIVE IN THAT AREA.

  2. Hope they make the parents pay simple ……we all make mistakes thou dont kill him u never know what can happen if u give him a chance. ……. blame his parents simple

    • Let him pay! The parents never committed the crime! When he feels the brunt of his misdeeds he will be forced to face himself and think!

  3. Simply replace the glass with 1 inch thick coated Perspex. Before any type of punishment is hastily given out, did anyone sit down with the teenager and his family to find out if he is having any issues at home?. Try that first before you create a serious criminal.

    • Whether or not he is having issues nah change the fact that he must deal with the consequences of HIS choices. Why don’t you go talk to the teenager and then buy the perspex

    • I agree. This kind of act is often an impulse to lash out for some unrelated event. 14 is a very difficult age in the best of circumstances. Give the kid a break and the benefit of a doubt.

  4. This revaluation is most unfortunate. I recall throwing stones as a youth also ….
    No punishment is needed, the experiment was a success. You may call it vandalism, but his accuracy, strength, speed can be the next SIR CURTLEY AMBROSE OR ANDY ROBERTS.
    THE PUBLIC’S PURSE IS VANDALIZED BY POLITICIANS FREQUENTLY BY PERSONS WHO GRADUATED FROM UNIVERSITIES, NEITHER THEM NOR THIER PARENTS IS MADE ACCOUNTABLE. E-BOOKS E-BOOKS E-BOOKS…
    No more fences please we cannot afford it, just have a chat with the youth and replace the glass.
