Symptoms of a corrupt society

Dear Editor,

Re: Street vendors or future convicts?

Who are we going to blame for these young street vendors committing violence on the streets? 

Parents of course, but we also got to blame the community and society, the Spiritual and Government leaders, the Education Department and the police and the worse contributor of all - govt corruption.

THIS IS NOT AN INDIVIDUAL PROBLEM – IT IS A SOCIAL PROBLEM. I predicted this problem from years back. Here’s your formulae again:

GOVT CORRUPTION + HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATE + POVERTY = HIGH CRIME RATE

This sort of scene on the video can only be seen in countries such as Columbia and Brazil where the crime rates are high due to government corruption and poverty - no one ever expected this to happen in Samoa. 

This problem is all to do with the high cost of living charged by the government to pay off their $1.7+ Billion debt and corruption, which created poverty, which led to families and young kids to commit crimes. 

This type of crime never happened in Samoa before. If this happened in the time before H.R.P.P took office, there would be a massive outcry from the community. 

Today, there’s not much of an outcry because people have been brainwashed with lies by the corrupt H.R.P.P. The worst is yet to come. 

As for young kids who start a life of crime from a young age,  they usually grow up to become murderers, thieves and rapists etc. These criminals will then be called monsters by our society. 

The question is, WHO CREATED THESE MONSTERS? The answer to that of course is CORRUPT LEADERS AND OUR CORRUPT SOCIETY!

This year P.M. Tuilaepa and his H.R.P.P government are pushing for the ‘The Constitutional Amendment Bill (No. 2) 2016, to be passed to amend the Constitution in order to define Samoa as a Christian State. 

The actions of these young kids reflected how the leaders of our society, (both Spiritual and Govt), have failed them. These children are victims of corrupt leaders and a corrupt society and there’s nothing Christian about it at all.
