    This proves random road side checks is a must. BIM needs to crack down on all areas of crime, not just guns and homicide.

    Crime can be brought under control. There are some main roads that should be blocked off at night . Then the roads left should be used to monitor and stop and search motorists. Police the Roads at night. This is the key to controlling the increase in Crime in Barbados. Do this and there will be a reduction in the foolishness.

    I have no problem with the police doing random checks. But no sensible motorist is going to stop at night for a group of men who look like police unless it’s in a high- visibility area with a lot of people around.

    @, Maria,L, on the button, these are my everyday thoughts for our Barbados ,to be rid of the vermin, which is gradually destroying us. Stop and search is the most economic and effective way, to control crime.

    This driver in this case ,had no driving licence, he should have been breathalyse as well, this should be the norm in Barbados. random breath testing, seizing of vehicles if the driver is over the limit, then the vehicle search, which would open a allading cave of the unexpected, guns ,drugs ,stolen property, no insurance ,no driving licence , stolen vehicle, unroadworthy vehicle.

    Why is it always hard work for us black people to get any thing done for the interest of our people/nation. why, why, why, its always a struggle. our people are hurting daily.

    Now’s the time for steppin’ out of place
    Get up on your feet and give account of your faith
    Pray to God or whatever you do
    What I see make me stop and stare
    Spiritual wickedness in ‘igh and low places….
