    When justice is slow, crime will grow. and devils love it so. Sympathies to the bereaved. Swift sentencing to the guilty.

    you don’t hang the killers, more killing will go on, to all my bajan people, the law will not protect you, arm yourself legal or illegal and protect yourself, because the bad guys don’t obey the law, simple my gun vs your gun 50/50 chance, your gun vs my stick or rock, 0 chance

    The A.G. said crime was down…..not eliminated. …..One serious crime doesn’t mean things are out of control. This is not the first drive-by…..not nearly

    barbados becoming so because people aint got no jobs no skills tge guns, weapons and drugs easier to obtain than employment. so the lawlessness will kick in even more than it did before. They kill n then go up dodds n eat from the money that come outta we taxpayers pockets then we get refunded with tax certificates. wth.

    There are a few reasons for us in the Uk to visit your beautiful island, the main one being the laid back wonderul people. This is a sad day.

      so so true

  17. Arther Lashley November 30, 2014 at 7:02 am

    All the while we have the GUYANESE DPP LEACOCK,
    we can expect what we are getting now.

    Look at the conditions in Guyana today.

    Gas products continue to drop.Wonder if we are going to get another drop for xmas or would the trend continue.
    i.e a drop followed by an increase ?

  19. Khadija Collymore November 30, 2014 at 8:00 am

    If you heard him correctly he said crime is down in comparison to this time last year. Im sure if you had listen on he gave a quite valid reason to why we the people would think it is on the rise. His reason being the amount of murders being committed with illegal fire arm which mostlikely happened in this case.

    This incident should send a very strong message to Parliment where the law must be implimented that all number plates must be made in DODDS . The plates must be equilivent to the plates made in the USA where there are seen clearly at night . This he, she , I ,they, we,them making plates left right and center must come to an end . This foolishness of the “poor-black-man” will be loosing business do not stand up in this case . Again I am asking “where are these killers getting the Bullets from” ? . If you do have a GUN and no bullets its useless and will rust away and wind up on the metal heap a Bees recycling .
    The Police must make get the answers from the guys when they are caught. WHERE DO YOU ALL GET THE BULLETS. WHO HAVE THE STOCK PILE.

    The late Prime Minister Hon. David Thompson spoke heavely on “CRIME and VIOLENCE” but Barbados did not listen. Now we are crying for HELP.

    Happy Independence Barbados
    in my day growing up in barbados we didnt have cnn news or cable tv ,so we didnt know what a drive by is ,but these want to be fools dont know how to appreciate the find things in life,they using all that new experience in a criminal way,what ever monkey do i do stupids.

    To Arthur Lashley, what does the DPP Charles Leacock has to do with the deliberate lawlessness of the criminally bent? The wheels of justice was grinding slow long before Mr. Leacock became the DPP, it’s not fair to him. The criminal know that they can use the flaws in the appeal justice system to their advantage, thereby capitalizing on it. The whole judicial system needs amending and revamping, it is outdated, plus the bleeding hearts against capital punishment need to see the terror and horror that is done to the mostly innocent family members left behind. I personally believe it’s time the gallows start to swing up at DODDS.

  24. Alex Alleyne November 30, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    Mr. Nures, Good idea but……… That GALLOWS will sit there in DODDS and rust and then may be move over to the Museum as a show piece. No one will be hang at DODDS …never, ever. Its the way the first world countries got a hold on third world countries . Petroleum is at an all time low only because the “heavyweights” countries want to keep the squeeze on RUSSIA . If Barbados ever hang a “fella” , we will be cut off from the rest of the world and will not be able to buy a loaf-of-bread.

    I’m shocked. I never thought this day would come to Barbados.

  26. Tony Waterman November 30, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    @Arthur Lashley!!!! That to me is actually Defamation of Character, and as such you MIGHT be getting a Letter from Mr.Leacock, him being DPP Has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ot do with Criminality in Barbados, Him Being Guyanese seems to worry you as if thing would be better if it were a Bajan in that Position, my first intinct would be to ask you to look into Mr. Leacocks Family History, and don’t be too surprised if you find that he has BAJAN Relatives, about 85-90% of the BLACKS in Guyana has their ROOTS in Barbados (Check your Immigration History)
    The Problem in Barbados stems from the fact that we can’t do what we should be doing because we are always on our Knees BRGGING at the Table of the Rich and Prosperous so we have to go along with their wishes, which mean we Cannot HANG MURDERERS, WHIP Theives, sentence them to HARD LABOUR, all we can do is slap them and sing Cum By ah.
    It is time we REALLY become INDEPENDENT and seek Financing from OTHER PLACES, CHINA, RUSSIA, etc,so that we would be able to deal with things as we see fit and not as the pressent Powers want us to if we need access to their Funds.
    Gun Crime MUST be deal with according to the 3 strike rule,
    There must be Mandatory Sentencing for persons caught with FIREARMS in their possession or stored on/in their premises, with Guns/Ammo for sale or in their possession ILLEGALLY same for Knives/Cutlasses. but this has to be dealt with by the POWERS that be, and not in a chicken livered way.
    if that means changing the rules then so be it, the rules have been changed before for other reasons, but for none as needed as these now.

  27. Randy Bridgeman November 30, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    As I see it, an effective approach to fighting crime is two-pronged. (1) Without militarizing things, police presence must be obvious. Set up mini-stations in strategic locations around the island. Get those young legs out of the vans and into the communities where crime is prevalent. Community policing it’s called. Let the bad guys know the PF means business. (2) Stiffer sentences for repeat offenders including those who commit violent crimes. Message needs to be sent to all those who would choose crime over being law-abiding that the weight of the law will come down on them like a ton of bricks. And when they get up to Dodds, it will be no picnic.

    We can allow the Social scientists to figure out why crime is so alluring to some and not others. In the meantime, offenders after having their day in court and being found guilty, must suffer the consequences of their wicked deeds.

    Come on Barbados! What is happening to you? There is so much anger and hatred in people here, I have seen it all over people’s faces in Barbados (though not everyone). This is a very religious nation but you all need to establish some strong Christian values in the young people engaging them with Christ and giving them dignity and self worth. It is a great shame to see an island once known for it’s friendly relaxed population now become known as an island of visciously angry yobs who will stab, shoot or cut people down for nothing more than ‘fun’.
