      This is a big problem in BIM. Programs implemented to help with combatting crime and saving lives, which has been used successfully throughout the world for decades when used by Bajans gets abused. Why do they have to destroy everything they touch?

    What’s wrong with BIM? First it was “Amber Alert” which they totally screwed up, now it’s “Crime Stoppers”? Seriously people get something right!

    @, Maria, L, hail, hail, on the button, simple rules and regulations ,honestly implanted, would be a starter to reduce crime in Barbados, but not even the simplest is tried in Barbados.

    Crime in Barbados is control by people who are protected and above the law, things is not going to get any better , until the people who sits in they 5 to 10 million beach fronts, the major big criminals being lock down at DODDS ,were will always have this mess,

    When last has crime stoppers, visited DODDS, and see the faces , of the majority of the prisoners,(THE FACES) view they back ground and ask the questions, ordinary young people gone bad, not being affordable criminals, but committing crimes above they station, with guns , from where by whom being brought into Barbados.

    Who should be blamed. when we have guns in Barbados , at a % of one on one, we bajans would be scared of venturing out after 6pm . locked in our homes.

    WHAT IS SAD TO SEE , MOST PEOPLE IN BARBADOS WHO’S PART OF THE ESTABLISHMENT, ARE ALL SCARED OF POINTING FINGERS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTON AND CALLING ON THE PEOPLE WHO IS THERE TO MANAGE BARBADOS LTD, TO DO SOMTHING, THE DRUGS, GUNS, BURGULARIES , FATAL VEHICULAR ACCIDENTS, HOW DO CERTAIN PEOPLE SLEEP AT NIGHTS , KNOWING WHAT THEY KNOW AND DOING NOTHING.

    If the Crime stoppers lines are used in the way there were created to be used it would be a tremendous asset in preventing some crimes,catching some criminals at the same time protecting the informers. It now seem as though its purpose is being compromised by some illegal activity . I do hope that those in charge do whatsoever is necessary to allow the intended purpose to function like it does inn other developed countries around the world.
    This is serious business and should not be toyed with.
