“I think that people should be punished. When they commit the crime and go free, they are emboldened to do it again that is why it keeps happening. Since I came, I have never heard of anybody being punished for this kind of criminal act. If we deal with them I’m sure others will think twice before they embark on this criminal act. Students are here to study, not to vandalize items,” he said.
