    Who is trying to destabilize B’dos? Something isn’t right here.

    Whenever you have a Bad Govt, these things follow. I do not think that politicians realize how much influence they have on the minds of the boys on the block or do they ? When a parliamentarian man can pull a gun or threaten another in the precincts of Parliament and get away with it , another two parliamentarians call each other by the names of their mother and wife ‘s body parts and another parliamentarian can hold an old man’s money for 14 years , all without punishment , the boys on the block take note. A certain dont-carishness results. Trust me , I have heard the boys on the block.

    Dave please you are sounding like a pure JA if a deviant person decides to commit a heinous crime you are going to blame government? Are you for real? the criminal element thrives on the crap persons like you espouse they are others in society who are having difficulties in many areas but have they resorted to crime? There are opportunities out there but some just want everything easy and do not want to eat bread by the sweat of their brows but would rather kill and rob by their own volition and you want to blame government,yes we have had some bad examples in those who govern us, but your take on this situation is purely politically inspired nonsense.

    Hail, hail @ Patrick,B, that’s logic thinking you are right man ,too many guns man, you think they are making them at one those old factories, newton,searls or foursquare.
    Barbados will run out of chicken wings , pigtails, eggs and macaroni, but never guns.

    @jrsmith: Hail sir – I do think that there are efforts afoot to destabilize this country. We are following the exact path to the current state of jamaica. We have to ask, why hasn’t the police/Customs been able to crack this gun running ring into B’dos? When the get these little guys, shake the tree very hard and see what falls down. The PM & AG have shown very little outrage at the level of gun related crime in the country.

    Everybody in the country knows who has guns, who sells guns and who sells drugs but yet we cannot bring this crap under control. This crap was one of the main reasons I left the island some decades ago.

    There are a lot of laws on the books but they are no being enforced or if they are, it is being done in a very selective manner. If you use a gun in a crime you get a mandatory 20 years hard labour, starting with cleaning up the beaches.

    @ Partick,B, again you are right, negative response to crime in Barbados ,by the people who suppose to secure and protect our island. Who is protecting who, as if certain people are scared of loosing they livelihood , to the world this is obvious, the whole thing stinks.
    Who’s running Barbados, simple applied ,policing policies can yield a fantastic downturn in crime.
    Put our defence force with the police at strategic points ,no one knows where or when, stop and search vehicles, stop and search persons, with this so much can be achieve,
    2 defence force personelle, to protect our boys

    1 police from traffic. who would check ,the state of the car, drivers licence, insurance and never know some criminal activity.

    1 police from crime unit , who have with him pictures of criminals, and searching vehicles and all persons present to that vehicle.
    People so much can be achieve in such a short time.( Well But, but)

    Do we not know that we allow our children to listen to gun and gangsta lyrics thus creating a mind set not to back down, but settling it with the gun vybz and movado, gaza and gully study it

  8. Alex Alleyne June 7, 2015 at 7:22 am

    It look like one’s life ain’t worth as much as 2 dead flies . More and more we read of someone shot dead .( its time that BDS get into the organ donation thing.) Too many guns out there and persons shooting at will , prison term is a vacation at the 5 star hotel at Dodds City .
    Only the POLICE and DEFENSE FORCE must carry weapons in BARBADOS.

  9. Alex Alleyne June 7, 2015 at 7:36 am

    I take it that the persons in charge of the Country see this as catching up and trying to get “first world” status . Apart from sports and weather, the news will be about , robberies , rapes and murders , just like the FIRST WORLD.

  10. Patrick Blackman June 7, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    @jrsmith – I do agree that the police and the defence force need to work together but we must be carefull with random searches and seizures as this could lead to a serious violation of rights. I think as you intimated, the application of basic policing efforts could significantly reduce the state of criminal activity in the country. Enforce the laws, promote and show a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for criminal activity and ILLEGAL POLITICAL ACTIVITY.

  11. michael parker June 8, 2015 at 3:28 am

    what is wrong with stop and search, i have been stopped and searched before, violation of rights does not come into it , if you have nothing to hide ,what is the problem.

  12. jrsmith June 8, 2015 at 11:03 am

    @, Michael parker, hail to you, this stop and search carried major debates, in the USA and UK, it always our black people against this policy, if you are up to no good , this effects you, if you are law abiding, shouldn’t worry you.
    @ , Patrick B, hail, a lot us is always considering the rights of that low life part of society who continuously commit crime, who impose a type of imprisonment on our senior citizens who are scared to hit the streets.
    I love this idea which is undertaken by the police in the UK, you are a criminal big or small , they gather they evidence , they come for you , four , five am , handcuff you drag you off in your shorts anyhow, to the nick /police station.
    They was a short contribution in a paper, which said comments are being made by some criminals, they are worried having sleepless nights , because that braking down of the door could be any day.

  13. Patrick Blackman June 8, 2015 at 11:47 am

    @jrsmith: Hail sir, I always tend to consider the rights of individuals regardless of their guilt. I think if we take that approach society in general would be a much better place, and everyone would feel as if the system is fair (naivete here).

    ” if you have nothing to hide ,what is the problem.” , is the problem because why should one need to be subjected to this in the first place. If you got this multiple times, I don’t think the average person would take to kindly to it. We should always put limits on the authority/actions of law enforcement, human nature tends to make people exceed their authority when they perceive no one is watching. Just me, I think I lived in North America too long…

  14. jrsmith June 8, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    @,Patrick, B, okay, you are on target, but, some applications of public law, only effects all ,if its lawfully applied and not brought into disrepute, by the simple attachment of them and us. And the protection of ,knowing someone ,who knows someone else, the someone else is part of the management structure.

  15. Tony Waterman June 9, 2015 at 12:42 am

    @michael parker!!!!! That only is LEGAL in a Police State, just yesterday something Very similar to Stop and Search, CARDING, was CANCELLED in Toronto Canada, two reasons as in Barbados it was Constitutionally ILLEGAL,(They MUST have Reasonable and or PROBABLE cause) and Statistics proved beyond any doubt, that only people of a certain Class/Ethnic/Social Background were being CARDED more than others.In Barbados that would be people of a certain Economic background most likely.

    NO LITTLE MAN, is in the position to Import Illegal Weapons, so if we are really interested in solving the Gun infestation, we must put friendships and Political alliances away, and do what must be done, ARREST the people who INTERPOL has already told us, are involved in the Gun Running in Barbados.

    We should be aware that the influx of illegl weapons to Barbados started when our Defence force Members came back from Grenada, and many of them brought back Trophies with them, which ultimately turned into a huge Profit for them. I myself was shown and Offered a Kalishnakov (AK47) out of the Trunk of a Hyundai Stellar, right in my Neighbourhood, so i have firsthand experience of what has been happening in Barbados for a LONG Time.
    Because how the Law is applied in Barbados is synonimous with who one knows or circulates with, and with which Party you belong to, it will be very hard to make a break through in finding, Arresting, Prosecuting, and Jailing the Persons who are involved in Gun Running in Barbados, as those same people are in most instances the people with some level of POWER.(Untouchables)
    so this problem for all intents and purposes will get worse before it will get any better.

  16. Tony Waterman June 9, 2015 at 12:46 am

    The only places in the Caribbean at that time. that this particular Weapon (AK47) was PREVELANT, was Cuba and Grenada, we were not anywhere near Cuba (Operational) at that time, but we were in Grenada. Go Figure!!!!

  17. jrsmith June 9, 2015 at 11:36 am

    @,Tony/W, hail ,thanks for reminding us , that the international police, already fingered the persons who are infesting bimshire with fire arms.
    We have the minos with the guns , killings , we have the drugs, now, we have the forged $100 notes.
    To take this all in , my conclusion ,who is protecting who, to protect whom from prosecution,
    One day it happens ,it all comes together, lots of people looses they heads, their friends and their lives. As situation tends to gather pace and gets worst people changes.

  18. Patrick Blackman June 9, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    @jrsmith: Hail Therefore we ask again who is behind the destabilization of Barbados and for what purpose?
