    Everyone commenting about she’s stupid, need time etc etc.
    But the most important thing is the justice system is violating her rights to be innocent until proven guilty.
    That was a non-violent offense and is not subject to jail without trial.
    That’s why Barbados is way behind because the average person doesn’t know their rights. Plus you have a system and a population that is blood thirsty and love dishing out punishment.
    Just reading the majority of these comments here and it shows why Barbados is way behind.
    Remember the ex-principal that is campaigning for capital punishment?
    Well this young lady is probably a direct product of capital punishment.
    Where you grow up thinking the one with the wipe or gun is the master and commander. If you can beat or intimidate you save yourself from being mistreated..
    Last but not least I hope you people that want or glad she’s remanded to prison, is willing to accept the same for you and your family don’t matter how small the offense is..

      Get real Lawrence Griffith. This is a twenty year woman barely out of her teens. This is just one example of how readable easy it is to acquire firearms in ‘Barbados’ while the PM and the AG continue to have their heads stuck up their rear ends and address the growing need to protect it’s citizens. She’s probably a ‘Gangsters Moll’ doing his dirty work by hiding his gun until he needs it for the next hold-up?

    Lawrence Griffith. Are you for real sir? Tell us you fell asleep while writing this.

    Can’t believe Lawrence Griffith used up so many words to reveal himself as a person who cannot connect the dots…………..

    This young woman would have been granted bail , in Canada or the U.S.A , not sent to jail without a trial. Some Barbadians are granted bail for murder,she had possession of a gun ,and she spends 4 weeks in jail .

    • Raysymbolic January 16, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      …..exactly and that’s why North America is in complete mess. Never mind putting her away for four weeks, she should be banged-up for at least six months and taught a lesson. Imagine the shame this young woman has brought to her family and those close to her. The authorities of B’dos have set an example to all would be gun totting louts.

    @ ,Art, hail, hail, what are you on, which Canada and US are you talking about.. months ago in the US ,a black man was shot 16 times he wasn’t even threating the police ,all he had on him was a knife, another black man was shot in his back 5 or 6 times ,he was running from the police. she is lucky , you I bet is one of the people who would shout about the amount of guns on our island , what is she doing with a gun..that’s why we need in Barbados , stop and search by our police…one less gun…

    This is not Canada or the USA and we are not satellite of them either. Just take a look at gun death in those country and you will see why we don’t want to adopt their law policies. Quit frankly they have some of the worse when it comes to black people. I am 100% in agreement with the decision of our courts. She have time to think about her error.

    Barbados need to get with the rest of the world ,The government and laws are too far behind, wake up people, how are the guys getting into Barbados. ?

  16. J. Martin January 16, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    That is a ridiculous punishment. She should not have seen the inside of a jail cell for that offense. She did not harm or threaten anyone. This is senseless. since when does someone get thrown in jail just for the hell of it. There are far worse crimes being committed everyday and no one is being punished for them. For example sex crimes and drug crimes which ruin lives and destroy families.
