A school bully attacked an
eight-year-old boy at a school
in Central Trinidad on Tuesday,
breaking his arm and causing in-
juries to his head.
Khemraj Lalloo: People jus mak-
in children and not raising dem rite.
Sendin dem to school and leavin it up
to the teachers to do the parents' job.
David Leeds: I could well imagine
the bully is from a hungry house, but
no amount of how "hard he has it"
makes this okay. If his caregiver(s)
can't feed him, put him with people
Mark Boodram: Public govern-
ment school have a lot of wild ani-
Anessa Simone Hamilton:
Children are children. Some in less
than ideal situations respond differ-
ently. Some fight, some are reserved
and afraid. This is not a public school
thing. Too much ppl not parenting
their kids n unleash them in the
school system, where they meet
decent kids and take advantage of
them, and the teachers don't seem to
be prepared to deal with this. Why?
These little bullies need to be treated
Usha Basso Kissoon: Parents,
talk with your kids. Teachers, call the
home and get the parents to have a
meeting with you in school. Princi-
Parbatee Mahabir: As the saying
goes, they were playing.
Theresa Lia: One has to be legally
extremely cautious. Proof is always
needed. Therefore all incidences
have to be noted in minute detail.
The behaviour of the victim and
witnesses to the act. With this in
hand the Head of the school should
be approached, the Educational Au-
thority in catchment area, finally the
Ministry responsible for Education.
It is a very sensitive subject. Pupils/
students attend school for 5-plus
hours a day, sooner or later a child
with a behavioural problem would be
noted and every effort must be made
to find the root of the problem before
it gets out of hand.
Wendy Rose: The ministry pro-
vides meals he couldn't be that hun-
gry. I wouldn't like him to be kept
home that's how criminals are born
but he should be sent to a school
where teachers are equipped to deal
with him. He wasn't born that way
perhaps his home life isn't good.
Helen Harrypaul: My child was
also beaten and when I went in the
school to complain the principal say
that my child should stay out the sa-
vannah and that he can do nothing.
Now my child is been victimised be-
cause I complained.
Venezuelan woman shot
A 23-year-old Venezuelan
woman was shot in the chest on
Tuesday night while returning
from a beach lime with friends.
Mark Boodram: Foreigners need
to learn to hang with the right group.
Esslin Seenath: She ran from
starvation to her almost death.
Marlon Jamurath: New. This is
Garcia Mary: Probably some she
knew. The shooter missed the fact it
was International Woman's Day.
Geschke Mike: People, a woman
was shot! Does it really matter what
she did or who she was with or where
she is from? Come on people be
humane...this could have been your
Groups fail to attend
Bakr's Women's Day march
As the world marked Interna-
tional Women's Day yesterday,
Woodford Square in Port-of-
Spain was notably absent of
women's groups who failed to
turn out in their numbers to
voice their concerns about the
violence perpetuated against
women and girls.
Randell Sinanan: Perhaps no at-
tendance is a statement by itself with
regard to the level we've reached in
crime. I blame not one of them for
their notable absence.
Diane Cheong: I agree, no one
wants to be associated with this
group. People haven't forgotten the
pains and terrors caused they caused
Brandon Joseph: That's why I
don't take these women groups se-
riously. Let him only say something
bad nah, you will see them.
Elsa Forgenie: Really! Anoth-
er attack on women! Women have
choices and have exercised that
choice to be there or not. Respect,
Coastal security doing
little to stop gun influx
Despite the increase in polic-
ing efforts to stymie the influx
of guns and drugs coming into
the country from the southern
coastal areas, drug runners still
prefer and use those areas to do
their illegal transactions.
Rudy Samaroo: New boats, radar
Gregory Jordan-Cooper: Be-
tween Toco and Icacos there's one
TTCG facility at Guayaguayare.
That's all that I have to say.
Kenrick Bernard: Even Ray
Charles could see majority of the
guns coming from Venezuela. We all
know about the economic crisis in
that country, where guns are more
accessible than food. So guess what,
food is traded for guns and girls.
Theresa Lia: Why are so many
guns coming in? Why is the demand
there? Who needs that many guns?
For what purpose are they going to

"Maybe the reason
nothing seems to be
'fixing you' is because
you're not broken. Let
today be the day you
stop living within the
confines of how others
define or judge you.
You have a unique
beauty and purpose;
