    Barbados is an amazing country.This lady can be charged and have her day in court but the perpetrators in that video that made the rounds on social media engaging in some of the most despicable,disgusting acts on underage school children can not be caught & prosecuted.

    Hey, any real Bajan would know that they are two laws in Barbados. One for those who have and the other for those who have not. Give it thought..

    She is only being prosecuted because the video went viral without which this case would have been swept under the proverbial carpet. Inorder to get attention in Barbados, you need to SCREAM and then persons will SCRAM to get things done, get photo-ops and appear holier than thou
