  2. THIS, is one of the reason I agree with the Philippines president to kill every mumma rass who use or sell drugs, their crime rate went down by 45% in 3mths, Yes, drugs has nothing to do with this incident but if the Jamaican government no start something drastic this barbaric act is not going to stop, My heart pain me just now reading this, I have a 14yr old Son and this could have been him, I cannot imagined what the parents going through right now. Kill the dutty Jancrow who did this. OLD WICKED.

  3. May this child rest in eternal peace. Before I get to the killer, I need to know, if the bus was empty? or you mean to tell me that Jamaica has gotten so bad that on a bus full of people there was no one to jump up and help this poor innocent child? what happen to the days when everyone would come together and beat a thief mek him beg fi mercy and then draw him go a station?

    As for this thief, may all the days of his life and the life of his offsprings for generations to come be met with severe hardship, misery and confusion. Death is too easy for him…
