    Young kids needs to know that when they join a gang there is no leaving, changing your mind or going straight, it is for life.

    Maybe I am stupid but what is the purpose of gangs? All I see is that sooner or later they are killed over stupid non essential things. These young people has no hope, they see no future, there is nothing for them to look forward to. Why is it that this government continue to line their pockets with money instead of trying to build the country so that the young people can live with some hope for a future.

    Instead of focusing on making life better for the citizen of the country they are busy selling citizenship to people from other countries. These people come in, get jobs over the citizens, open businesses, get rich off the backs of the poor people on whom the government has cast aside. I pray God move in such a way as to cause things to change for the better in what could be a beautiful tranquil countr.y

    As a man from Griga myself, I grieve for the loss of a home boy, and my condolences go out to the family; however, sometimes if you live on the streets, you die on those same streets.
