Don’t be an idiot

Dear Editor,

Respect starts from home. Anyone (parents, teachers, priest etc.) can advise anyone about life. 

But, at the end of the day we make our own decisions. 

Stop, giving them chances, Police Officers. 

Do your job! They are not your friends. You are in uniform to uphold the law and enforce the law. 

They’re not little boys or girls. They are grown men and women. 

Don’t play the side game of ‘I know so and so and you’. 

We are all humans. We know right from wrong. No one has the right to put hands on another person. You took an oath to protect every individual in Samoa so please own your words.

To all the College students don’t be a fool. The person you’re hurting is someone’s precious jewel. Make a change instead of cursing yourself. 

Don’t act like you don’t know what you’re doing. 

Stay in school and be cool but don’t be ruthless. 

No one likes an idiot.
