      I know lots of people who do not attend any of the celebrations for the same reason. It is a shame really.

      Sad having your kids experience something such as that and having to tell them they can no longer attend festivals because it may very well happen again. Sad they have to be thought their society is dangerous.

    Just for the record Dwayne Burgess was the peacemaker not directly involved in the altercation. RIP.

    We are seeing the ghetto behaviour in Barbados, low lifes , just walking around with guns ,shooting people, we need police stop and search in Barbados ,that’s going to be the only way, we are going to get most of the guns off our streets.

    Soon you would be able to purchase a bag of weed, a gun and water coconut on the motorways.

    This is serious when you have a carnival emergency personnel should always be present.
