Chaos on the grounds of the youth hostel

Immediate concerns were raised yesterday as reports of chaos on the grounds of the youth hostel at mile twenty one quickly circulated via social media.  A release from the Ministry of Human Development noted that at about ten o’clock yesterday morning ten of the female inmates pried through sheetrock and zinc in one of the rooms and proceeded to go on top of the roof.   THe release noted, quote, “The incident was sparked when alternative protocols were put in place to provide educational classes within the dormitory building, instead of the usual classrooms. A few staff members had called in sick and so relief staff were being brought in to provide proper supervision. As such, the residents could not be escorted around the compound as per the normal schedule of activities until the relief staff arrived on the compound. Some of the residents, however, reacted negatively to the change in operations.  Behavioural issues are common among the high-risk female population residing at the Youth Hostel, as many of these adolescents are affected by unresolved trauma. From time to time this, unfortunately, manifests in aggressive and destructive behaviours. The staff along with the counsellors and social workers at the facility continue to work with the residents to help them to develop alternative strategies to manage their emotions and behaviours. With assistance from the BDF volunteers on site and the Police, the girls were safely removed from the roof.
