    If that area is so well known for these shootings (only a week or so ago the same thing) why doesn’t the police patrol there more often

    Too many shootings going on. Police need to have an amnesty for guns to be turned in, thereafter anyone caught with an unlicensed firearm should spend the next 20 years of their life behind bars with no chance of an early release.

      Why should they be paid? No way. It’s their opportunity to do the right thing or face the consequences. An amnesty us their only reward.

      @Elke Hassell!!!! the Police Can’t be everywhere all the time, and Hopefully you are aware that they (The Police) are woefully Understaffed, as there is no money in the Government Coffers to hire any new Officers. they are doing as good as they can with what they have, the people can do their part by calling Crime Stoppers when you see someone committing a Crime, it,s not Based in Barbados so there is no possibility of anyone in Barbados knowing who called in the Tip.

      @Ashes Forde!!!Really !! does it matter that much where it is ??

      @Mark Walkes !!! I agree with you 110%, and i have made similar suggestions in the past, to no avail, the Ag. an the Cabinet/Government are more interested in acceding to the wishes of the same people we fought so hard to rid ourselves of in the 60’s, that the can’t seem to see the Forest for the Trees,We have Lawless people Killing one another almost Every day, but they (The Government) seems only to be interested in Repealing the Hanging and Buggery Laws to Please OUR FORMER EUROPEAN COLONIAL POWERS.
      MANDATORY SENTENCING For Gun Related Crimes.
      ANYONE:: Found with an UNLICENSED GUN in their POSSESSION, on their PERSON or AT/IN their Place of Abode, Would be AUTOMATICALLY GUILTY of that OFFENCE, and be ESCORTED to a Judge/JP for processing with a sentence of 5 years 1st offence, 10 Years 2nd Offence, 25 to life with Hard Labour for having Committed ANY CRIME with that Weapon, up to and Including MURDER.

      @Collin Colliie Chase !!!You ask “”Whats wrong with these people.””
      Here hopefully is an answer to your Question
      “”The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men :
      to see if there were any who would act wisely and seek after God.
      But they have all turned out of the way,
      they have all alike become corrupt :
      there is none that does good, no not one.”” There is your Answer.

      Krystle, with all due respect you have missed the point. The police are issued with firearms in defence of both citizens and themselves. This is totally different to these rouges who arm themselves illegally to commit crime. The two cannot be compared. If you are now making reference to a police officer discharging his firearm where the threat level to either himself or the general public was insignificant then that’s a totally different issue which will need to be investigated and any due process followed. My comment was centred on the illegal possession and ownership of a firearm.

    I think its is about time that we accept that the minds of many of our young people are spiritually deranged and silently programmed to carry out thoughts of other persons who may seem to be decent older folk.

    Many of our young people are being used to realize the wishes of others. In other words, there are always negative thoughts in the ether which are put out by persons other than our young people.

    When the young people use the mind altering substances, they begin to feel comfortable and bold. Automatically, they “tune into the frequency” of those negative thoughts that are in the ether. The substances usually assist them in “owning” those negative thought forms.

    A psychologist once stated words to the effect: that all of the persons in the mental institutions and the prisons are there because of us. We send out negative thought forms at times and then dismiss them from ourselves but they are left in the ether and our young people usually “tune in” to that “frequency” and eventually carry out the deeds in relation to those thought forms. At times they do not even know the victim but circumstances are created and the scenes are played out on their stage of life.

    I pray that the Spirit of Respect would take up abode in our minds, in our homes, in our schools, places of work, on our streets, when we are at play, while we attend worship, in our neighbourhoods, in our individual parishes and in the entire land of Barbados in the mighty name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.

    Fishing boats and barrels Stop them at the point of entry. Weigh cans if it’s more than listed open it. Search like you are looking for a lost white woman.
