Poor parenting knocked again
Director of the Criminal Justice and Research Planning Unit, Cheryl Willoughby, agrees that poor parenting is contributing to the violent crimes in Barbados.
During an update following a spate of deadly shootings in a continuing trend of violence, Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith said on Monday that a number of socio-economic factors were to blame for the upsurge in revenge attacks.
At that press briefing at police headquarters, he said factors such as poverty, squalor, poor parenting and education were allowed to fester, leading to some of the horrifyingly brazen public attacks. (AC)
