    He should be given a fair trial and if, found guilty, hang him by his balls in the said area. Stupid and a cowardly act.

    Dont jump the gun. All the Police has is “a man assisting them” and even if charged the onus would be on the state to prove beyond a show of a doubt that he is guilty.

    Dont forget, innocent until proven guilty.

    We must band together as caring and united citizens of this beautiful and Blessed Land to renew our efforts and look out for each other. Family members need to reach out more and show more togetherness.
    There is a wave passing over our Island and therefore we need to change, and or adjust some of our attitudes as well as behaviours. Let the churches band to together with the citizens, hold a day of praise, worship, and earnestly pray. We need intervention before this evil wave overrun us. God answers pray! We must pray and have belief. Heavenly Father protect Barbados.
