      Niel Harper, you ain’t telling nah lie because Ryan Bayne contribution to the collegiate discourse here is quite minimum, ineffective and unproductive at times, and I therefore hope that he elevates his standard of discourse to the point where it conveys a sense of purpose on this blog.

    Hal, are u for real? Go to any country in this world & keep running away when a police tell u to halt & see what is going to happen. Attempting to escape from the police is a sure way to get yourself shot. In most other countries he would be dead. Our police deserves credit for a job well done.

When will the Powers that be take this thing serious , I am quite sure that they all have their travel papers up to date in order to make that “quick get a way” .

      That is not the way you address the illegal gun problem in Barbados, and quite frankly, you’re suggestion does more harm than good, because what about the innocent mothers and fathers who will have to grieve these young people? It just troubles me profoundly when I see intelligent people who ought to know better make these unintelligible suggestions that causes me to question their moral-compass.

We cannot allow the emotionalism associated with the issue of gun violence in Barbados to divert our focus from the substantive to the travail, and in the process blurring our sense of right and right. We cannot obviously think that it is okay to advocate violence as a solution to solve the gun violence problem in Barbados because it does not reflect our values nor way of life as a foreward thinking people in the Caribbean. We have to look for practical and workable solutions to address the illegal-gun problem in Barbados or else we are teetering on the brink of anarchy. We already know that these illegal-firearms are flooding into Barbados through the legal ports of entry, so we have already address part of the problem as far as I concerned.

    Guns have become Barbados staple diet. Zero tolerance required.10 years in Dodds for Gun Slingers. The guns are coming in and somebody making a fist full of dollars. Off they go sailing around the world on their yacht, children education paid for, have the best money can buy and poor people continue to make ‘the take advantage couldn’t careless’ better off than themselves

    If the man is running away from the Police,that tells me he felt he had to get away . For all the fools that complained ,are the same nincompoops that keep a lot noise when these idiots shoot and kill each other.
    The Police try to do they job ,and the same folk that ask to have Police presence in the neighborhood is now complaining because one of the neighborhood criminals is arrested. It should be pointed out to them that they can’t have it both ways .

    The unemployment rate is high especially amongst young folk in Barbados, but yet these young people are able to get their hands on illegal firearms. And I am afraid to concluded that if the power that be fail to effectively address this gun violence in Barbados, it is going to be the new normal we will all have to face.

    The unemployment rate is high especially amongst young folk in Barbados, but yet these young people are able to get their hands on these illegal firearms, so the question I ought to ask is this: who is supplying the youths with these instruments of death?. Now with that being said, and I am afraid to concluded that if the power that be fail to effectively police this gun violence in Barbados, it is going to be the new normal we will all have to face.

    Police don’t think to watch the movements of certain individuals ? Don’t start at the bottom or the top of the chain go for the middle man ! He’s the link take the middle man out and you be lead to top . More careful watching of the guys with the nice cars and the bling that don’t seem to work and seem to have a following of younger boys round them. This is not rocket science .

    Some how the powers that be seem to be blind,or they pretend to be. When each and every person that can see (other than the Police and the A G ) knows the most notorious gang leaders in Barbados ,and the main drug suppliers in they community.
    For those of us who marvel at what some of these young bandits have achieve without ever doing a days work ,have to believe that many of them are being shielded by some in authority.
    Any one that can have four top of the line vehicles parked in his drive way, a big house with all the amenities to boot and doesn’t work or hasn’t worked anywhere should be questioned as to how the wealth was obtained ,and if the explanation cannot be proven ,without doubt ,all possessions should be seized and forfeited to the State. Family should also be questioned ,because a lot of the funds obtained through crime is placed in other family accounts or for safe keeping.Until this procedure is implemented ,drugs and guns will bring Barbados to it’s knees .

    It muses me when I read some of the comments and have to come to the not so pleasent conclusion that some people are definitely walking around with blinkers on.
    Stop the drugs and you’ll get rid of the drugs, you have to find meaningful ways of handling the youngsters, are police allowed to fire warning shots, are you for real?
    The amount of drugs and guns that are on the streets didn’t just turned up here on some pirogue that happened to run a ground on a secluded beach, neither were they dropped by parachute, they are being ushered through the legal ports of entry with vip or diplomatic immunity in clear sight, but I is just a lil yard fowl so I maybe talking idol nonsense.
    I know for a fact and a certainty, when in pesuit of a suspected criminal and a chase is on, when the police says stop, that is what they mean, this ignorance that is being bandied about that police cannot shoot at a fleeing suspect is rubbish, if you are running away from being arrested and pointing back at the police officer(s) where do you expect them to shoot you? In your chest or stomach?
    Get real people, in any other island he would have been dead, in loving memory today.
    This may be hard for some but the fact remains that, drastic measures have to be taken in drastic times, these times now are drastic times and no pussyfooting around the issues will bring them under Control. If and when the police step out of line, they too will be dealt with accordingly by us in a lawful way, but as for now they are the ones charged with bringing the criminal element under control to ensure that anarchy is not the next order.

    Just for your knowledge, there is no such thing as a warning shot thing as a warning shot that has to be given by police when they are in pursuit of a suspect, they either shoot you or they missed, to fire a shot in the air can be deem as reckless endangerment, because that shot fired in the air not intended to hit the suspect, when it reach it’s apex, will decend with a gravitational pull faster than the velocity it left the weapon at a different point, who’s to say that some unfortunate person won’t be the recipient of that shot when it is decending at a different angle, will cause injury or possible death. That is the reasoning behind the rationale why neither military or paramilitary are thought to fire warnings shots means to ensuring a capture.
