Confirmed: Teen put in maximum security place of safety for attack on Judge





A 15-yr-old girl who attacked a judge and a police officer during a tirade in the Yallahs Children’s Court yesterday is to be placed in a maximum security place of safety. According to Irie FM News, the teen was being put in a place of safety after the judge learnt that she was involved in a sexual relationship with her step father and was placed in the care of a relative.

However the relative stated that she could not adequately care for her, as she would be working in Kingston and that living conditions at her mother’s residence was unsuitable. This led to the teen’s uproar, where she bit a police officer in the back and attacked the judge smacking her twice in the face. After she was restrained the girl was placed in a holding cell where she stripped naked. A July 26 date has been set for her appearance in court.

I think this is more than just indiscipline. She began acting out after realizing that none of her relatives would be bale to care for her and she would be placed in a place of safety. I don't know any young person who would want that, considering the fact that she was in a relationship with her stepfather. Where was the mother when all this was taking place? Where was the father for that matter? Parents need to take a lot more responsibility for their children and be more diligent in their care. At 15/16 one would think they are mature enough to make certain decisions but they really aren't. There's a reason that stage is called adolescent...not quite children but not adults either. Lots of guidance needed. And these grey tone men who are having relationships with children under age 18 ( I could care less for the age of consent, since by law you are not an adult till 18-21) should be beaten with many stripes! Shame on the way we are supposedly caring for our children now a days! Shame!

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later. This is a tell tell sign as to how far respect and discipline have declined in our society. Quite frankly, the one good that may come from this is that the MOE and other authority figures who are responsible for writing and implementing some of those ridiculous and ineffective regulations under which schools now operate, can now very well understand the level of indiscipline faced by teachers on a daily basis in the classroom. At least the Judge can incarcerate the child. What can teachers do especially when they are faced with even greater student infraction?
