Good afternoon Met and metters.fi all who a talk sey the death penalty no fi come back,because even if it come back crime and murder still a go high cause people poor and desperate.Dat may be true because dem a go still allow dem fi appeal upon appeal.If we sure sey a person kill someone beyond a reasonable douth ,swift hanging in a special court.Then we wii see if murder rate not gonna go down.Check Cuba the hero general got caught up in cocaine trafficking,dem put in front a di firing squad. Fi di next generation in school now change fi the better dem haffi start mek it compulsory for all 9 grader upward have to join the school cadet programme and learn some forn of discipline and structure in their life.They in turn can instill this discipline into the lower forms.Again bus ass have to come back,yes some parents go overboard but it better fi bus u child ass now than fi mek him grow up going down the wrong path and end belonging to the system.[I still cannot understand how parents aren’t allowed to buss dem kids ass,but the pow pow brutalise dem and the system back the pow pow]
