“Change is not going to come through laws and policing alone. What we have is a spiritual problem. What we have in the hearts of young men are hate and evil,” he said.

Parris delivered the sermon yesterday at the Sharon Moravian Church, St Thomas, where family and friends gathered to pay their last respects to the young man who was gunned down in the early hours of February 18. (HLE)
