    B.P.F. What is happening in my beloved country?
    Find these people and lock them up and throw away the key!

    While we can lock them away for some time, on their return, they will still be possessed with the evil forces. this is where the church must play its role behind the scenes. The church must begin warfare against the forces of evil that appear to be more rampant in Barbados since CSME begun the stupidity of allowing Tom, Dick and Harry to come in, live, work and gather all that they can from our little resources. Barbadians, especially the younger ones, have also joined in the drama of employing evil forces to bring about their wants.

    The church must revise its message and teach the congregants about the forces of evil that have always been around us. There is light vs darkness. At the sound of the “bell” Darkness seems to be raising its hand at the end of every “round” when it involves many of our young people. There is need for TEACHING – not focusing on whether or not your sermon “is a good one”. Teach the people about the destructive force of darkness and the healing force of Light that is emanated by the Holy Spirit.

    Maxine, with respect, get a grip.

    These people have no education, poor upbringings, no employment, no opportunities. There is no devil controlling them; they are simply lacking morals and see drugs and violence as a route to both respect and wealth. If the church started preaching/supporting contraception and lower birth rates, less disadvantaged children would be born into an already over-populated island.

    The Holy Spirit isn’t going to fix them much like it didn’t do anything for us during the ravages of our indentured past. We need to look at ourselves and our own society to fix these problems and stop blaming external forces. They’re not in church, and they’re not going to go to church. No sermon or preaching will reach them, but a well-funded education system and social welfare can at least help future generations following them down their chosen path.

    As I read of the ever increasing trend of gun violence in Barbados, I can’t help but think of how much this trend of violence has permeated the culture as it does here in the USA.
    The time has come for the political, religious, psychological, sociologists and legal parties put their head together and get to the root of the problem.
    Here I am as I write this, watching the backlash of the problem in Baltimore as a result as the death, some may call it murder of a young man by law enforcement personnel. Who knows what the trend now going on in Barbados will take the society at a later date? It is a matter which has to be given a great deal of foresight before it is too late.
    I read a while ago where there was some difficulty in recruiting young men for law enforcement positions, on the other hand we seen many young men being escorted to the courts and eventually to Dodds to serve time for crimes committed. This is a waste of valuable youthful resources which if better utilized can be a benefit for all.
    Please give this some very serious consideration and stop asking, what is going on in our beautiful Barbados? This is now a global society/community in which we are living and what affects one in turn affects all.

    We have lost our culture, the failure of our older generation has now shown, nothing of achievement , we are seeing since 50 years , the history that in the US , blacks are worst of than they were 50 years a go. that hour long documentary was shown in the UK, months ago . All the varying elements of religion are destroying black societies far and wide.the only ones who are benefitting from them are the pastors most of them from nothing back grounds , to be worth $100 to 500 millions offering nothing but fake hope and faith to the masses. For black people nothing has being achieve since slavery , because we are waiting on this blueyed , blond hair person to turn wine into water and to save the world..
    Instead of 100 churches we need a hundred businesses, we need work for our people , we need to find , good honest
    politicians who work in the interest of the people and not for the interest of some people. Us bajans need a united front , who are with us we share mutual respect , we are placing too much emphasis on regional politics, our social and political behaviour
    varies island to island, we haven’t learnt anything from the history of the EEC , BAJANS LET US GRAB OUR ISLAND BACK ,LETS US HAVE OUR WAY OF LIFE BACK, LET US ALL BE PROUD AGAIN TO BE BAJANS,WE NEED TO DO THIS HAND IN HAND. UNITY.

    Barbara becoming like America so much killing I remember when we could walk the streets anytime day or night and nobody would bother us we use to leave our house open and go out and come back and nobody would steal anything what happened to good old Barbados.

    Jr Smith you are so right! Take back what is ours

    Clowns in control ; Circus of folly manifests
    Dump the Comptroller of Customs. Too many Guns in the place. Ask Police and Defence Force Personnel if they know something about the guns on the street.

    Today’s young people seem to be very lost. I have been wondering why it seems as though most of these crimes are being committed by youth between the ages of 18 and 25. This begs for someone to take stock and find out the underltying cause of this madness. One theory I have is that maybe during the period 1990 and 1996, there was either a significant increase in teenage births or the reverse where we had older women giving birth to children.

    The end result is that we now have some still very young mothers who themselves are trying to catch up on the childhood they missed and therefore are no role models for their Kids who they Are a few years older than or the reverse where the parents now are too old to control these violent hot tempered young people.

    I know our prison is getting fuller but a slap on the wrist as punishment for some of these crimes is too slight. Start back the de bushing program and use these young people who obviously have loads of energy to do foolishness and clean up the overrun places in Barbados. Hey at least it is a step

    On one hand we are hailing for the sports shooter victory in court, and then blaming the youth for the violence.. stop the legal sales of firearms, and then go after the illegal distribution of new and commissioned weapons. Why does the richest man in barbados need a gun sales permit, even after he shot his son dead? Is it who he is? when a weapon is retrieved from a suspect, does the investigation include the point or origin, seller buyer that information made public, and all responsible held accountable
    …who’s watching the watchman as the watchman is watching wunna?
