Increase in Young Bahamians Involved in Gang Activity
The number of youth gangs in the Bahamas rose by 58 per cent over the past eight years, according to data released by Youth Against Violence.
The total number of gangs in the Bahamas is now 79, and schools have become a “breeding ground.” It is not just public schools being affected, said Minister Keith Gray, a presenter at the Conflict Resolution and Anger Management Seminar on Friday.
“No school is impervious to gang penetration,” he said. “We say this not to create pandemonium, but to create a network of support to address the plight of our youth,” he said.
