Nassau | The Bahamas Press knows that the Bahamas government has suspended a prisoner labor program that resumed about three months ago.
The program aimed to reform those who were about to finish the sentence, hoping to give them the opportunity to return to society by gaining meaningful employment.
The program was abruptly suspended this week after Timothy Sanders, who was working at the Rubis Service Station on Madeira and McKee Streets, was killed. He was shot dead and shot several times in his chest after the shooter pulled up and demanded $ 10 in gas. He died on the scene.
Former National Security Minister in the morning edition on Wednesday morning Marvin Dames I was wondering how Saunders participated in the program. We at BP are asking how some of Dames’ colleagues haven’t been put in jail yet. But we are declining! Which hole did he come from?
Society is clearly having trouble hiring former criminals who find themselves behind the law. The question now is how society, as a society, accepts and welcomes those who have slipped through the cracks but spent their time in prison.
So far, the community is not tolerant and seems to refuse to give young people a second chance. And if a person who has fulfilled his debt to society denies his right to paid employment, we must consider that we, the people, are ready to face the failure of forgiveness!
Report and let yinner decide!
