One Attorney, Fareed Ali, says this is unprecedented.
He said the country wants to pass laws to stop the 100 gangs operating in the country, but he says there may be some over enthusiasm in drafting these new rules.
Mr. Ali said instead of parents being viewed as innocent until proven guilty, they are now in a situation where the burden to prove their innocence now lies squarely on their shoulders.
The Attorney believes the situation is unfair as police have so many institutional tools at their hands versus the regular citizen, particularly parents.
Mr. Ali suggests that there may be an increase in individuals taking the State to court, as has been seen between 2011 and 2016, in order to sue for damages for wrongful arrest.
