    Just a quick question .I was told if you’re pulled over you can tell the police you’re going to the nearest police station and they would accompany you there and everything would be sorted at the station.Does this only apply to women?

    Not so sure about that Violeta. Not sure about that at all. Some years ago , the AG said that action is illegal so the police stopped

    The laws need to be changed to include ” FRISK AND SEARCH”. 10-25 yrs for robbery and we need to become in humane when it comes to murder. To hell with amnesty international ( a waste of time)

    Every time they hear the crack of the whip
    Their blood run cold
    So to remind them they should never scheme to take
    Another man’s soul.
    Like in Bahamas, Antigua-Barbuda may be it’s time the cat is reinstated in Barbados.
    We have people hands and heads being chopped off in public for assault and robbery by the authorities in Saudi-Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates etc. And what does the U.K and U.S government do–they kiss the hands and feet of these people.

    In future , please set up a road block with 2 Police vehicles for safety.
    Some people out there just bent on CRIME with no respect for Law and Order. If Barbados continue like this I can see DODDS the 5 star hotel going up another flight in order housed these fools at TAX PAYERS expense .

    @Maria Leclair!!!!! YOU ARE COMPLETELY WRONG, They are ILLEGAL, under the Barbados Laws and Constitution, like here in Canada (Same Laws) the Police MUST have “”REAONABLE AND/OR PROBABLE CAUSE”” The cannot just up and stop and search you for no reason, Barbados as far as i know is NOT yet a POLICE STATE, everyone up to and including the Police have to follow the rules.
    Only the Driver of the Black Jeep can say what really happened, my supposition is that he must have had some pot on him, but now, he is in more trouble than what he would have been with the Pot.
    @Shakila Payne!!! That is just hear say, not true, they must investigate, and you will only end up at the Station if you are arrested and charged with an offence.
    @Violeta Patricia Piggott!!!! there is something going on in Ontario at this moment Called CARDING which is essentially stop & Search by the Police, thatb too is Illegal by the Canadian Constitution and the Canadian Bill of Rights, and it WILL end up in the Supreme Court.
    Even un the USA, an officer MUST have Reasonable and/or probable cause to stop and search anyone, the casees we hear of are by ROGUE COPS, and we do have some of them in Barbados also.
    if the people allow it to persists, it will become the norm, there goes your rights and freedoms.

  13. Tony Waterman August 24, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    @Eddie Smith!!!! YES, at that point it is legal, as that would constitute “Reasonable and /or probable cause”

    @Wayne Banfield!!!! Sure, until you give someone a ride and they inadvertently left their POT in your car, and being unaware you allow your car to be searched ILLEGALLY.then what???

  14. Tony Waterman August 24, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    Not long ago the RBPF was entering and searching People’s Homes without Search Warrants, and if they did have a search warrant, they were not showing it to the Owner of the Home before instituting the search, all that is Grossly illegal, yet people stand by and let it happen, That is the Laws in MOST CIVILISED Countries, and i will assume that Barbados is in That Group, so why are these types of ILLEGAL POLICE Activity being TOLERATED. and where does the Bar Association stand on this, are they FOR the People or WITH the Police.

    With the amount of gun crime going on in BIM. Stop and search. Well done RBF. Hope the officer have a speedy recovery and wunna catch the Hit and run moron.

  16. Mark Ashby August 29, 2015 at 6:02 am

    Do you really think that the members of the RBPF are allowed to stop certain vehicles? Is this the same organisation that was stop outside a neighbourhood by a security guard but search another neighbourhood without warrant? People talking about reducing crime as though the police are going to really search at the persons who are bringing in the weapons in this country. Stupse, stop fooling yourselves, law is for one group of people of one colour in Barbados.

    There is nothing wrong with stop and search. Too much crime in Barbados and something has to be done to stop it. If a person is innocent then what do they have to fear. Barbados is becoming like Jamaica and the US. I say frisk them, it will get some of the guns off the street. Barbados is not on the 100 list of places not to visit because on crime on tourist. Barbados depends on tourism and returning Barbadians, with the increase in crime people will not want to travel to Barbados. Some Bajans are afraid to even visit there now. Some people turn to costume jewelry and not gold because they are afraid. Can’t you’ll see that the police are protecting you but stopping and frisking. This way they will find the guns and get them out of the hands of the idiotic criminals. I don’t live there so I don’t know much about police brutality. I haven’t heard much about it so I’m not saying it don’t exist but there is always one bad apple among the bunch.
