    De AG is trying hard to convince me dat Barbados is still relative safe. I am not convinced,’cause i see dis fella reach in he pants, pocket (I mean one a dem pants dat only reach by he knees) for he snort rag ,and i duck for cover ’cause wid dem low down pants wid forty five pockets ya don’t know which pocket has de pow pow.Every time i left mi house now mi neighbour must be tinking i crazy ‘ cause i zig zag all cross de road just in case one a we teddy boys out dey taking gun practice, dat way i might just avoid de bullet .
    I never hear bout so many guns ,so many people shot,some in da behine ,in da foot in all mi life, dese jkers can’t shoot straight so it might be better still if you walk in a straight line .
    Mr AG .you mst be looking through chinese made glasses ,’cause you think crime is down ,da is because like TW say you must mean it down the road .
