    @Rawle Spooner!!!!! I am adamant that there is NO LAW in Barbados to stop any Law abiding Citizen from filming the Police on the execution of their Duty.
    What should be a worry to the Bajan Population, who has to endure these things Daily, is the Actions of the Judiciary, who seem to believe that as long as a charge is Laid, it should go to court, rthis should hve been disregarded at the DPP level, and as it did get to the Court Level, the Magistrate/Judge has the Authority/Power to Throw it of if as i am certain is not COVERED by any Criminal Law in Barbados, this man ha been sentenced under a Law that i am sure doews NOT Exist.

    There MUST be someone/Anyone who reads this Comment, that can set out to verify my assertion that there is NO LAW in Barbados prohibiting Videoing of the Police in thier interaction with the general Public.

    This is a Very Dangerous case of. we are the Police and we can do whatever we want to.

    But Someone SHOULD remind them that they are there supposedly to SERVE and PROTECT.
