    Just to reiterate what others have said. As a frequent visitor because we see this as a safe place to holiday not so sure any more. We said once Barbados isn’t safe we stop travelling. Most other places around the world have already been crossed off, just Barbados to go and it looks close to being crossed off.
    Thoughts with those concerned.

    What is needed, bring back capital punishment or 40 t0 50 year terms for any murder. Make the bail so high, to deter people from bailing the villians.
    Make criminals pay to be in prison, seize what ever assets they have. We need stop and search laws, anyone , anytime, any where,persons, vehicle, sea going vessels.
    Shootings , stabbings, are they to be classified, we don’t know who is doing what to whom , where and when , who is involve with what, all we see , the end product.
    We have a lot of criminals on Barbados, a lot are getting they come uppanance.
    You play with fire ,you get burn.

    Maxine Baker stated,”Our young people are walking in darkness and are seemingly unaware of their condition.”Why is it that we look towards “Our prime minister ” for every solution ,when we ourselves are to be blamed for the ills that confront our youth.
    At our Graduation, A former Minister of education, and,later , Prime minister stated”juvenile delinquency is a direct result or adult delinquency”, , violence breeds violence, so its not the church that wherein lies the solution,, Its the HOME,, A noted writer stated,it is in the home that education of the child is to begin,here is his first school,here,with his parents as instructors,he is to learn the lessons that are to guide him throughout life,,the educational-influences of the home,are a decided power,for good or evil….if the child is not instructed aright here,Satan will educate him through agencies of his choosing”mothers,fathers,uncles and aunts must instill character in infants..the bible states ” Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”Dont leave the training of your child to anyone else,Church,School,Whereever; it is your divine duty
