    This happens when you allow foreign governments to dump their home grown criminal back in Barbados. Why do we allow the USA to deport supposed bajans back to Barbados who left here when they were 3/4 years old? Thats the problem, government should be saying no to this, the USA raised these criminals, let them deal with them. We should strip these so called Bajan of their citizenship.

    Patrick ,i wonder where you stood on the garcia case, you are implying that the crime is to be blamed on deportees, particularly those sent back from the united states, each country are governed by laws and punishment for noncompliance to such laws.we are living in denial to even think that crime in barbados is exclusively to be blamed on deportees. You may be privileged to inside information, but even the police did not disclose the perpetrator,

    @Wayne Dread: I am not priviledged to any particular information but I know what happens here in North America when it comes to criminals who have not regularize their status even though they have lived most of their lives there.

    Garcia was not wanted by his country and they refused to take him, we however took the humanitarian road. All I am saying is that we cannot allow ourselves to be ruled by these countries just because we want their money.

    If you go back and look at crime over the last twenty years you will certainly see the difference. Do you remember when we had crime here it was people using cutlass , knives and things like that (mainly murders in domestic stuff), now we have guns, plenty of guns in the place. Where are these guns coming from, who has the network to organized this and not alone the money to purchase them. The level of sophistication in crime has dramatically changed, just saying.

    Like it or lump it, west Indians hate being call English, so much like to be like the yeah man, cool man country the US.
    We got it bajans so deal with it. the ghetto, street hood mentality which if we compare, we are now seeing the outcome of the last 50 years back to the pass. to think we in Barbados haven’t really seen anything yet.

    so patrick you saying when criminals was using cutlasses and knives on their domestic partners that was a lesser crime? crime is crime whether you use a gun or a cutlass or knife. In barbados there are too much lawlessness among the younger people, they get kick out of school at age 15 and have no job skills, or no where to go to apply for a job, so what you expect when these same kids with no education grow up to be adults. They will turn to crime, I remember a few years back and it still happens, if people in the neighborhood have a disagreement with someone, the first thing they say is they would run through someone house. Its lawlessness to the max in barbados, mainly in the inner poor areas, although some decent people live in the poor areas, some bad people live among them. Its gone out of control , the lawlessness and crime.

    @nanci: I agree with you crime is crime, my point was the level of sophistication is the difference, it is now more organized and sustained.
