    “Police fired back but the culprits manage to escape”. Do the Police go the firing range at Waterfords?.

    Police fired back and occupants of the car were pronounced dead at the scene. If that was the article we’d be hearing why they couldn’t shoot out the tire or some similar folly. Damned if you do damned if you don’t.

    Do the Police in Barbados have target practice? Why do we hear so much about criminals shooting at Police and subsequently getting away?This seem to be the recent norm. Do the police run away in fear every time there is a shooting ? If the Police in any other Country around the World is fired at by criminals ,you can bet that lethal fire is the and should be the correct response.
    We seem to have a bunch of gut less Cowards in our Police force.

    Don’t understand men in a car open fire on the police and escaped. This sounds more like a joke than reality.
