    Another day you hear a murder. What is Barbados coming to? Then again people like Miguel sang about it already. This nation is becoming a Gun Town.

    Interesting. Want to live like the Americans so much. Now you have the violence just like them.

    Totally agree as I have returned from a five week holiday there after 13 years. Big changes for the worst unfortunately. Did not recognise Barbados at all, yes big shot condo’s continue to go up as the poorer get poorer and can’t buy land.
    Found feteing and partying is the number one thing.People are prepared to throw away money on brazilian weaves and rent fast cars instead of buying food, rum is the cheapest thing around and lots drink themselves silly. Litter bugs are in full force and no one does anything. Barbados has changed big time in general. Where has your PRIDE gone? Where is the govt.? Where are the people, police, leaders? What is border control doing regards to illegal guns. Hello, is anybody there? The place is becoming a corrupt, gun-toting hell of a place! WAKE UP!!!!!!! get the place back on track before it’s too lates or people just like me will not pick Barbados as a first choice future destination.

    Well most west indians/bajans want to be like the Yeh,Man big country,Uncle Sam,you have it deal with it. Barbados have become just as disfunctional as the US.
    Our women are just as fat and obeste,a raging ghetto mentality is in place. The mess barbados is in, must be placed soley on the shoulders of bajans.
    They have lost they culture,to religions which have no economic value what so ever, the only persons who benefit those outfits are people like Benny Hinn, his worth $500 millions.
    Waiting for divine intervention.

    Amaria Maria, We live in the UK and visit Barbados annually. We could of had a holiday in Canada, but we decided to visit BIM and spend our cash in the island that we love. We are not frightened to visit our main concern is why are the gun rate crime is increasing for such a small island? Your bread and butter is Tourism, you don’t produce or have a manufacturing industry. So what are you going to do let the lawless morons ruin the island? Never mind the UK or America they have the resources to do what they have to do. I forget wanna don’t like Bajans that live and work hard in the UK to give advice or tell wanna anything that’s why the country is in the state it is in. By the way, I’m BRITISH.

      Amaria Maria, when I state British Bajan – those who travelled on British Passport before Bim became independent and Barbadian descendants. The group attended Diaspora Conference held this month, not one person on the panel including Heknows The Sleeping Giant had NO interest in anything said by the UK group. But yet they had the nerve to ask the group to invest in Bajan Companies. British and Barbadians that live in the UK spend more money when visiting the island than other foreign tourist. The Black Americans are bringing in the barrels of food when visiting they have no intentions of spending 5 cents. Too late to seek our advice, the donkey already gone down the ABC High and stick to the traditional saying when advice is given ‘you ain’t saying nothing’. All we can do is to continue to promote Barbados as a holiday destination because we have no intentions in up setting you all with constructive advice. I leave you all in the hands of The Sleeping Giant.

      There is no excuse under the sun Barbados. Pick up a fork or a hoe and work the land. Barbadian suppose to be highly educated but some where along the line some of the citizens lack common sense. Don’t wait for hands out get up and help each other.

    Always using Jamaica and Trinidad to feel better about allyuh issues.

    What a stupid comparison,T&T continues to enjoy record visitor arrivals,for both business and tourism,.

    The dynamics are very totally different,Barbados is too small for these kinds of activities,everything intersects. You’re attacking,robbing and killing tourists,that’s like T&T blowing up their own Oil and Gas facilities.

    Please don’t try to trivialize Bim’s current issues,as a Trini I saw Bim as a place where I could come and let my guard down,but it seems that you are more likely to get robbed and shot randomly in Bim than in T&T where serious crimes such as robberies etc are at a 30 year low,UNBELIEVABLE.

    You people got work to do,that place is festering and you cannot believe it would simply go away,it wouldn’t.

    So instead of looking for misery company,I suggest you,everyone of you get up and take back BIM before it’s too late.

    It’s glaring now,it’s ridiculous now,and you’re accepting it. Run those guys outta town.YOU CAN!

    • Geoquip August 21, 2014 at 8:33 am

      RIP sir.

  18. Geoquip August 21, 2014 at 8:39 am

    Raymond you are correct,I much rather stay home than go to a place where I can be killed for my stuff as a visitor..Bajans are forgetting that the sand and blue water thing is no longer the ultimate tourism option,it’s like McDonald’s and Cheffette’s,it’s a dime a dozen,and there are more ‘exotic’ and safer destinations to pursue sand and sea.

    What you gonna fall back on BIM?

  19. kelvin August 21, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    listen we need to stop looking and comparing what gine on in other islands and clean our mess up. you cannot compare crime in Bim and Ja because of the literacy rate of bim is 95% while in Ja its about 70% and kingston population is half of barbados.with that being said clean your house and stop worring what other territories are going through. CRIME IS EVERY WHERE and unfortunately that young man got caught up. RIP brother.

  20. brewster August 22, 2014 at 7:14 am

    Just read that the guy had already been shot before. Seems as if we are not dealing with an angel. Nevertheless, it is still sad. BIM needs some serious policing and educating as 19 people for this year is way too many.
