    Keep praying for our boys because too many of them are on a direct path to death and DODDS. Parents we need to instill more values in our boys and the society has to create more opportunities for these boys. Condolences to the family.

    This news headline seems to be the norm in Barbados on weekends in recent months.

    Those in authority need to do something urgently to stop this state of affairs now before it escalates to the point where there will be nine or ten per weekend.

    We need to be aggressive with those who are feeding our children with illegal drugs.

    This will continue while prison sentences mean nothing to a murderer, this guy will be free and he will still have many years to live, if your not prepared to bring back the death penalty, then life behind bars must mean life, until they take their last pathetic breath

    Here we go again. In Barbados ,we need a stop and search policy and imprisonment for anyone carrying knives or guns. I am not impress with the US, but agree with the length of prison terms are given to criminals there.
    For all murders in Barbados, there should be life imprisonment, or minimum time serve 40 years.

    @freeagent: “those in authority” are NOT the government. Think of the four parents who “raised” both these young people. Think again, before blaming “the authorities” for the failings of parents, and spending more of our scarce taxes, to Fix problems which should never have arisen, in the first place!
    If you REALLY want something to worry about…contemplate how these two young people might be “Raising” THEIR children.
