Not the key

Re: Youth behaviour leaves family traumatised

Nomalei demands more police presence instead of employing soothing, community-building, more constructive tactics, such as engaging the youth in soul-enriching discussions on their concerns, their future.

We have to consider the widespread lack of opportunity for their personal development, the glaring absence of jobs for young Samoans, the continuous waste of funds and potential within the country. 

I know in my heart (and more importantly, in my mind) that her ultimate approach is NOT the key.
