More bad girls
MORE GIRLS ARE becoming involved in deviant behaviour, which is a concern to the National Task Force on Crime Prevention (NTFCP).
Director Cheryl Willoughby said more girls were fighting, smoking and using alcohol – behaviours formerly seen mainly in males.
“Over the past couple of years, we have seen girls involved in more aggressive behaviour, in both the school and the community,” she said.
“Girls are no longer sitting on the sidelines and are getting involved in fights.”
In addition, Willoughby said they were also using “quite a bit” of alcohol and marijuana and could be seen out on the blocks liming “just as comfortably” as some young men. (CA)
