Sean Bird concerned about Clare Hall killing

The United Progressive Party candidate for St John’s Rural East Sean Bird is expressing concern over the murder which took place outside the Clare Hall Secondary school on Thursday afternoon.

It is alleged that Allan Dowdie was sitting under a shed in the company of a school child when he was shot.

According to Bird, the incident further strengthens his appeals for the issue of delinquency to be given urgent attention as more young men are turning to violence.

Bird said, “I have been warning for a few years about the increase in delinquency in the constituency. It was about 2 weeks ago that while in the area a young man got very aggressive, in a confrontational manner about wanting at least $1000 from politicians.

When asked if he wanted a job, he said no, his job is smoking weed and drinking rum.”

The political hopeful says these young people remain at risk and in need of direct intervention, adding that the incident is as a result of the frustration and hopelessness that is increasing across the twin island state.

The UPP candidate extends condolences to the family of the deceased.

    • @Skyewill…take a time machine back to the days of #CARIBARENA News forum, and our discussions and predictions, as to the future of youths. The chickens are now coming home to roost.

      I am looking forward to the increase of #GhostGuns, #Fentanyll and the gun manufacturing & assembly plants to our shores.

  1. Sad to say that we are a country that is reactive and not proactive….. Concerns tend to heightened after the fact. We need to get with the program and wake up and smell the coffee

  2. Sean Bird a wan rassole, how you know is delinquency that mek de man get shot up? How you know the motive behind the shooting? A one mutherskunt you be na?
    You hear me? A one rassole you be?
    One fucking jackass you be?
    You think ppl fooly fo mek you fool fool arwe?
    Dutty stinking political prostitutes and parasites.

  3. This article doesn’t give vision to what the Uup candidate would do for the constituency. His uncle envisioned Youth Skills, an institution which provided learning for individuals who seems to have no hope or sense of direction and many benefited from it.
    The people need to hear what ideas and projects a representative have that would gear these hopeless, idle people including the youths in becoming meaningful, hopeful contributors to their families and society at large.
    The printing of this article makes the politician seems as though he has no vision. There wasn’t any suggestions as to what he could have done to help.
    Very poor journalism.

    • Don’t blame it on “poor journalism” little boy. Tell the BLUE 🐦 to settle ALL OUTSTANDING PAYMENTS to his current and former zdk employees!!! Sean touts himself as a “godly” man, but some of his actions are troubling. When is he going to pay Brother Roy all of his money? If the blue 🐦 is struggling to manage Ivor Bird radio station, how can he take on an entire ministry???? A real loafter and leech.

      Please please Sean🐦 don’t let the people have to wait as long as the Wilmoth Daniel STRIPPER POLE BUS. Pay them their monies since you’re a “godly” man.
