Bring back lashes as punishment

Published:Tuesday | June 11, 2019 | 12:13 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

No NUMBER of police and soldiers will be able to curb crime if the citizens do not play their part in giving up their criminal loved ones. Stop protecting kids by withholding their names when they commit criminal acts.

Army and police recruits must be vigorously investigated, with the school’s principal being the last person to check.

Seek audience with the subject teachers. Ask the community kids and not just the adults. Kids are more prone to give a true picture. Also, monitor their behaviour throughout training.

We must also give long sentences, without parole, for gun-related crimes, rape and murder. And bring back lashes.
