      It’s not the guns, it’s the people. Guns don’t kill people do, if there are no guns they will use knives, machetes, hammers etc. They will get the job done regardless of what weapon they have.

      I think you will find a gun can kill more people faster with no chance to fight back, they can kill 2 or 3 people at once and they can accidentally miss target and hurt a bystander much easier than a knife or hammer. A young man has much more courage stood 20 feet away and just pulling a trigger than he does having to be face to face with his enemy and having to physically stick the knife in. The most dangerous weapon but the most cowardly really.

    This is another senseless murder. My condolences must go out to the elderly man’s family and friends.

    My God. Why they killed that man. The police will catch them but the man is dead. If this continues soon there will no room in the prison. Where these fellas came from killing their own.

    And this madness ,goes on and on . our political management of Barbados LTD. seems not to be really concern, we need , nothing is being tried ,nothing is being done to stop this madness, when the flights are coming half empty, and less cruise liners are calling what the hell is going to happen then.

    Its this kind of a time I wish we were still control from London, at lease they would be doing something. this is the kind of republic we want.as like the others ,violence and poverty, them and us, divide and rule. that’s where we are at.

    What a senseless killing! A man doing his legitimate duty, not interfering with any one and those thugs just out his light.
    Barbados needs taking back! This surely is not the Barbados in which I grew up. Everyone seems so helpless. Where and when will this madness end?
    It is one thing for the lawmen to do their part and then these thugs are given a pat on the back( note pun intended). The punishment meted out to those who deliberately deprive a person of his life or and property should be dealt with appropriately.
    The fine should fit the crime! Full stop.
    In times like these I wish I was a judge.
    God help and deliver Barbados.
