    As far as i’m concerned the media house is somewhat doing it’s job… yea maybe it shouldn’t have been Headline but it’s not ONLY if something bad happens to tourists that it will affect our tourism industry..but local crime as well and other factors…i’m sure if you were in the same situation as the tourist in a foreign country..you will be darn pissed if the media houses didn’t acknowledged your issue.

    The One and Only Foreign Exchange Income Barbados has and its being slowly but surely destroyed by Thugs. What are we going to do when the Tourists stop coming here. When are people going to realise that this kind of thing is not just serious but extremely damaging to Barbados Survival. Serious Steps need to be taken here

    Cover ups would destroy our reputation faster, especially when it comes to light. If our local papers won’t speak of them, they’ll go global.

    We like too much covering up of serious matters in Barbados. Last week my Canadian customers were robbed by 4 mask men at their home in St John. Coincidence? I doubt that. It never even made news. Now someone could have lost their life, all in the name of having a good image.

    One problem is Bath and East Coast are not patrolled by police much if ever and a lot of layabouts are checking to see if houses occupied or not. Think they can get a quick but shooting someone is the lowest of the low. One just cuts off the tourist trade period and even locals who work hard for their monies get robbed . Has to stop,,

    We need to adopt the Cuban straterge on violence against tourists….
    10-15 yrs… Min. Mandatory sentences for crimes involving firearms… Including mandatory sentences for possession.
    No Negotiations, or plea deals….
    Expulsion of all foreigners charge with violent crimes. An revoking all citizenship issued to those foreigners.
    Common practice all over the world. Why not here?.
