    When will these mothers pick up a stick and beat the devil out of these kids, instead of holding them up in the wrong that they do. Kids will make mistakes but when it becomes two and three times they are in trouble with the law, parents it is time to look at the real facts. It is always the police fault, I know they are not perfect but let them at least attempt to do their jobs.

  3. Phillybelizean says:

    if da mi fu unu kids unu nu mi wa seh dat

    daddydick, if a mother loves her child she will correct him or her, not cover the wrong they do, correct the behavior. She probably rely on him for as they say “wan lee 5cents.” As long as the boy comes home and give them a shilling or a Belikin or a soda, buy a creole bun, they will cover up a multitide of sins for their bad &%# kids. With my child, I call a spade a spade, if he is wrong you bet he knows khe is wrong.
