    This could conceivably cost Barbados millions in foreign exchange. Far more than the cost of providing security at isolated government public establishments. At the barest minimum, there should be warning signs to visitors to such establishments pointing out the absence of security after daylight hours.

    That was a heartless remark. These people were robbed on a beach at noon by a person holding a gun on them. they could have been dead and in Barbados if the police arrived fast so would the robber. Barbados is a major tourist draw so news of this nature is not taken lightly ,

    As is always the case you have to be aware of your surroundings and be prepared.
    I have been going to Barbados since 1980 most recently Mrarch 1- April 7th. This is my 23rd or 24th trip in the last 35 yr.
    Every year I take a Moke and do my own tour. Only once was I in a situation over by Boscobelle where it was clear four local boys were trying to divert tourists up a dead end to shake them down.
    They move very quickly when you floor the accelerator and point the car right at them.
    I drive a circle route and stop for lunch at the Round House and this has never been an issue.
    Having said that, Barbados needs to pay attention.
    One bad news story can under 1000 good ones and the only folks who get hurt in the backlash are the hard working folks in the tourist industry.
    Mr. Stuart are you paying attention?
