    Education is supposed to enlighten a person’s thinking, but it is a shame to see the amount of our young people who have been educated in Barbados and the amount of dumb things they are doing to each other, we need to be more firm with the gun carrying fools.

    I totally agree with the comments made by magistrate Fredericks a few weeks ago, I don’t see a valid reason why any one should be given bail for willingly breaking the law by willingly having an unlicensed gun in their possession, every peace and life loving Barbadian should fully support the Magistrate fully, we are loosing our young people at the hands of those who don’t care about others, the payrents who are willing to put up bail for the wrong doers should take the money they are paying to lawyers to plead on their behalf should be willing to invest the same money in an area where they will get a return on it and let the wayward persons stay in prison until their case is called thereby allowing us to be able to walk the streets more freely.
