    What a great pity! Wasted lives who seem not able to find something productive to expend their energies on.
    God help Barbados.

    Here is nine criminals, all adults, vying for a room at DODDS. most looking as though they have won the lottery. what kind of sentencing would wipe the smile of they faces. I have kids, grans,greatgrans, but so sympathy for this lot,

    Bajans carry on making excuses for people like this lot, the recession, bad home life, role models, we suppose to be an educated society and this lot is a product of they own behaviour. how it starts , going to bed wake up a criminal. the idea the world owes anyone anything has since vanished in thin air.

    What we need in Barbados, to make criminals pay for they keep, on a daily basis, if they have bank accounts cars what ever , make them pay, even after a prison sentence they still leave owing for they keep they must pay it off. as for the issue of bail, 25% of any bail should be paid in cash. we need these criminal to be thinking twice of they actions and the worrying outcome.
