    When will the folly stop ?
    Not only growing the herb that is an illegal act –Ok get pass that BUT
    Shooting at the Police is despicable. The Police are here to help us . protect us and they do a very good job. Kudos to the Royal Barbados Police Force. These youngsters want FLOGGING !!!
    The Government of the day must act.

    Youngsters have guns thinking that they are large and in charge.
    Well you all have crossed the line when you mess with a COP on duty.
    25 years each in DODDS should be good enough and at the same time send a “strong message” to all who think that they can mess with the POLICE in the line of duty.

    I am speaking as a visitor. We have been coming to Barbados for almost 30 years and I am very sad to say that each year we see more crime. We are lucky to have never experienced this personally, we stay in The Gap and have just returned from our holiday, a safe one and a wonderful one. We hope Bim does not turn into a DR island kind of place where everything is All Inclusive and one is encouraged to stay within the boundaries of the resort property.

    I think an effort should be made to blank out the officer’s face

    We need leaders and not followers, while going to school these children are offered money etc so when they get older it becomes the norm and they continue to make money that way but on reflection now they would realize that it is not worth it. We all have to pray for these lost souls, all is not lost and there is time for them to redeem themselves.

      Lack of parental and positive influence.

    Each time I read a comment from you, you say always that the politicians are responsible. Forgive my – what to you may seem silly – Were you programmed to speak ill of the politicians on each and every topic? Would you be able to get your imagination stretch to the point where you could consider the effect of generational curses, demonic forces, the deliberate snatching of one’s stars even before they have left their mother’s womb, the effect of sitting and watching movies with subliminal satanic symbols in the background, demonic artists within the music industry, the uninvolved and permissive style of parental guidance, mental disorders, an educational system that takes great care of the “high flyers”, etc. Please jr smith, before you make comments on any other issue, find out about the impact of these few but extremely important topics and make your contribution one that is worthy to be read. May Yahoveh endow you with wisdom and understanding. Leave aside Blame. There are those of us who always look to cast blame on someone other than ourselves when in truth and in fact, the mote in our eye is longer than that of those whom we seek to blame for our own misdeeds.

    I don’t mean to discourage anyone, but praying will get us no where with this. God doesn’t do things for us that we can do for ourselves. He gave us more intelligence than animals and he expects us to use it.

    He gave us a blue print for family relations and he expects us to follow it. He gave us a guide for raising our children and he expects us to use it.

    When we refuse to follow His dictates we must accept the consequences.

      Agreed, I could not have said it better myself.

    Hope parents are seeing this. This is a serious reflection of the very poor home environment , our children are exposed to. Unless this is corrected, many of our young people are going end up incarcerated.

    @jrsmith, if there was an article about teaching children ABC’s at nursery you would blame it on the politicians! it’s kinda tiring almost every comment you make politicians, politicians….so wait, who responsible for raising children with morals, boundaries, discipline and guidance? PARENTS, NOT POLITICIANS!

  20. Roger Gibbons January 5, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    Stop blaming politicians for mothers’ failures.Politicians have their own hard mouth children to deal with, you think it easy?Those little idiots would have to be be working for somebody else that got more sense than them. Somebody said to stop flogging? Give me a break for God’s sake. I seh buss de tails wid licks.
