They’re not kids, they’re young adults

Dear Editor,

Re: Bail opposed for Avele student 

I totally support N.P.O. going after this guy. 

Schools fighting in town is not a small thing to be explained away as if “they’re only kids”. No they are young adults and when they organise fights like this and threatening to kill other students and teachers with knives and machetes then it is a serious matter and N.P.O. should be involved. 

The “they are only kids” attitude has permeated Apia society for far too long and that is the reason why these fights have been going on for well over 30 years now. 

It is time to put a stop to it once and for all and a clear message sent out to all the students and schools that this time the problem is going to be squashed for all time. Even if it was false bravado on the iPhone, these guys will graduate to much more serious crime if they are not taught a lesson now.
