Our youth can be saved

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I am pleased to see, in Amanda Fraser's column 'When did our kids become 'gangsters'?' (Gleaner, May 27, 2015), someone raising the issue of rehabilitating the youth of our society.

I found it particularly interesting how Ms Fraser focused on the hope for the perpetrators of violent action rather than the usual solution-less admonition. It goes without saying that the victims of such a case as at The Queen's School will need attention and care, but if we are to truly address the deep-rooted issues in the attackers, it will make for a better society.

I was also pleased to see a well-written article with well laid-out thoughts and a suitable conclusion. It often pains me to read articles that have either too little substance or too much opinion without reasonable justification.
