      Sherwin Williams get your head out of the sand. Tourism for now is what supports most of Bim! BY the way I am not a tourist. My family born and raised in Bim!

      The truth is many Bajans would not be eating if it were not for Tourism. You need to walk around Bim and open your eyes if you believe differently. If you cannot see tourism is the survival of many you are blind. Don’t think you can all of a sudden change this and people won’t suffer and crime won’t become worse. Nothing wrong with admitting Bim needs tourists!

    I wonder if they are going to apprehend a suspect within seven days, but no gun will ever be presented as the murder weapon.
    Then we will record another crime successfully solved.

  11. Vernon Chandler May 13, 2016 at 9:44 am

    I do not understand what the AG or the commissioner or anyone for that matter can do if someone decide to take up a gun & shoot another person. Does the AG have mind control superpowers to stop people from doing what they want to do? If you or me or anyone decide right now to go & shoot someone for whatever reason, what on earth can the AG or the commissioner do to stop us from doing it?

    • Donild Trimp May 13, 2016 at 12:58 pm

      Vernon Chandler, you need to up your intellect to understand certain things.

      Guns are not produced in Barbados. Nine out of ten Barbadians can tell you how these guns enter the country.

      It is the same with drugs.

      Barbados is a small country, don’t you think this information would have filtered down to the COP and the AG?

      “Margureta Worrell, my mind is actually purer the your own”

      I am not condoning this behaviour, but I am engaging the problem from a sociological standpoint. In other words: I am looking at the forces which gives raise to the egregious behaviour of the criminal class and what incentivizes it . Shaz Luke, go and tell an unemployed youth on the ruff side of town that it is not right to take someone else life during the commission of a crime. We all know right and wrong, but what does right and wrong to do with reality?

    Guns, Guns everywhere . Where there are DRUGS you will find GUNS. The TWO go together like glove in hand. DODDS must be put into a 2 story dwelling in order to housed these “fools” for a VERY, VERY LONG TIME.

    Will never happen Sheriann Norris. Should have started to happened decades ago, too late now. Unfortunately Barbados is now over populated, stricken by poverity and destruction.

    Where is the PM in all this? He meets and greets all citizens on their 100 birthday. However he never addressees the crime situation nor offer the families of the victims of crime, words of empathy, condolences etc. Mr. PM and AG should be speaking to the Citizens with some words of reassurance as to what action is planed to combat this crime.

    Veroniva Boyce, in the early 1990s Barbados was progressively moving towards period of moral anarchy with gangs everywhere right? I kinda recall the fellas move with some protection no matter the event at that time.

    Well as I see it, the effort to eradicate or lessen the incidents of gun violence/crime must be three-fold, not necessarily in the order given here because they may overlap during implementation: (1) Law enforcement authorities must embark on a concerted and sustained effort to not only cut off the supply of guns coming into the country but to retrieve as many as those currently in possession of the criminal element. The latter is going to be difficult for obvious reasons but the effort has got to be ongoing.

    (2) The legal system must come down much harder on convicted criminals by imposing stiffer sentences. If the laws that govern crimes and sentencing need to be changed, then the politicians should do it if they truly care about our country. Enact some tough sentencing guidelines for the Magistrates/Judges to have at their disposal. Do the parliamentarians have the political guts/intestinal fortitude to get this done? You be the judge. Criminals and potential ones, those bent on a life of crime, must get the message that if you’re convicted in a court of law, you’re going to spending some serious time at Dodds since by your wicked deed, you have forfeited your freedom and must now pay a lengthy debt to the victim/society.

    (3) We must address the moral/spiritual and sociological reasons why people commit crimes. And there’s a multitude of reasons/explanations for this. It’s not accurate or correct to say that crimes committed in our country are mainly economic. Some may be blamed on hatred, passion, revenge, gang warfare, turf battles and all that goes with the illicit drug trade.

    Finally, neighborhood residents must be vigilant and be aware of happening in their communities. In today’s world, even in a small society such as ours, people tend to spin a cocoon and essentially operate within it confines for safety/security. But by reaching out to communities and working in partnership with residents which makes for good and effective policing, the police can make deep inroads into not only apprehending criminals but preventing crime as well. We’re all in this effort to fight crime as the whole nation is negatively impacted by its commission. As one of our late PMs challenged, “It’s all hands on deck” time. May the Lord have mercy on our beloved nation.
