      I keep saying farmers and business owners should have a fire arm at all times to protect themselves and thier property, but no the police does tell you about something would have to happen to you first and bear junk.

      Look at Hinds he ain’t live pass his first encounter, if he had a gun now he could have defended himself and his family.

      Once you understand to some level how criminals now a days I think you will think differently .The law has consequences and punishments in place to keep plp in line if the penalty isn’t as great as the crime people will have to fear or need to deter from doing the crimes because the penalties hold no weight .If I knew as a child I could do whatever without getting into trouble trust me I prob would have done whatever I wanted but it doesn’t work that way

      It is folly to say that hanging do not stop crime. It may not stop ALL crime, but it do not have to. If it make only TWO would-be murderers reconsider & stop from pulling that trigger, or maybe even lower the barrel of their gun from pointing at a victim’s chest to point at their thigh before firing, then it has stopped 2 persons from losing their lives, 4 parents from mourning the loss of their children, maybe a child (or 2 or 3) from losing its mother or father, a family from losing their loved ones…
      Isnt that worth it?
      Saving one or 2 victims may not seem like a lot, but when the victim that is saved is your son or your mother or sister, that life becomes more important, doesnt it? Maybe it is your life that will be spared.

      Not to mention that the death penalty is a punishment & not a really a deterrent. I mean prison sentences do not deter crime either, nor do fines. People go jail for robberies every day & they come out of prison & rob again. So should we finish with all prison sentences, or for that matter all punishments altogether, because they are no deterrent?

    Kristina Pile you seem to know a lot about this shooting incident. Perhaps the police should interview you. I find it streange that these alleged robbers pumped several shots in this guy when only one shot to his head would have done the job. I smell a rat here. Our police are good. they’ll find the killer.

    First one has to stop getting mixed up with DRUGS, then one will not have a huge tab to pay, or trying to cut in on turf, etc; ending in a visit from the trigger boys to prove what happens, even to innocents…DRUGS 101…

    I blame the damn government and police for such deaths.

    The only persons that should be dead here is the robbers, this man is a businessman which made him a target, he had all rights to own a fire arm, but this system so backwards he obviously ain’t had any and now he is dead.

    I wonder how long it would have taken the police to get there between the entering of the robbers and the death of this man.

    The police needs to ease up and let business people own a fire arm, these are serious times.

    My sincere condolences goes out to the family. On another note, it is people like Ms Taylor that appears heartless. At this time your statement is not appropriate. What it it was your parents. Your siblings or some other family members. HEARTLESS. Always ready to judge.

    Colette, I so agree with u. The police is looking for these men who murder this man so callously. But when these men hole up in a house & take their guns & shoot at the police ,& the police shoot back & by chance kill them, u are going to hear a lot of idiotic statements on here about how the police murder them & how the police shouldve shoot them in their foot.They shooting at the police heads trying to kill as much police as they should but the police should aim at their feet.

    @edj, The death penalty will not work because a high price lawyer will take a case just for money not caring about the injustice that was done. Plus Barbados sign all kind of treaties in order to look good world wide. WE STUCK.

    Its sad for the families who are hurting but every time someone is murdered the same things is being said by bajans, the deceit in lots of bajans who is living big from the drugs culture, knowing how the guns are getting into Barbados .
    Then comes the protection for the big ups if these people think its always going to be them and us one day , one day it will all come tumbling down…
