    The Barbadians with their Black American influenced anti-police sentiment need to wake up and see the police are not the enemy. The police are the thin blue line between the rest of us being victims of ignorant men with guns anarchy.

    We want to crucify police every time they fire a gun and shoot known criminals. What rules do these gunmen operate by?

    That statement sounds crazy black amEric an influence . Sound dumb clearly you don’t see what’s going on where police is killing black men every day . Don’t compare the two do some research before you make ignorant statements. #blacklivesmatter.

    When people come before the courts on gun charges and get a slap on the wrist probation, nothing will EVER change. Keep up with this lenient bullshit for political gain and see what it doing to this country…
    I can’t wait for them to start building houses on Pluto!

    Crime is not just a problem for the Commisioner of police. Unemployment, family situations, glorification of the drug and gun culture and many other factors all contribute to the criminals becoming who they are. The underlying problems need to be addressed. The police can’t be everywhere all the time. The whole society is waiting for someone else to solve the problems. What are WE as citizens doing to stem the tide. Will we wait until we become like Jamaica?

    These young men that are running around with the guns shooting up the place and murdering people did not come from Mars. They come from within our homes. They are our sons, our brothers, nephews cousins, grandsons, uncles and neighbours. We need to stop blaming other people for the violence these lawless men commit every day in Barbados. We need to take responsibility for our part in ignoring the signs of trouble when they were younger. A lot of us buried our heads in the sand or pretended that the boy child was ok. He was just doing what boys are supposed to do. They did not become killers overnight….they had help along the way…our help.

    This madness will never stop until some one of the big up family get murdered then something will seem to be done….
    Drugs and guns are being brought into Barbados by people who many bajans is acquainted with , these importers is also protected by bajans.

    Our politicians and police is expecting the low life with the guns is going to walk into a police station after shooting someone and hand the gun over. Simple laws around the world which is enforced and is very effective in finding guns and drugs , seems extra ordinary hard to be introduce in Barbados.

    My take the people who is protecting the big criminals don’t want to interfere with they pocket money and is also afraid any enforcement will upset the big boys. so our people will suffer and families who loose they love ones will just accept the fact that nothing is really being done.. We are still living in the past in Barbados shooting and murders every week , something that is very new to us , but what do we do say the same things when they is a shooting and murders….

    My take to try stopping this madness, extend (DODDS) lock more people up , clean our streets of the scum no bail for people involve in knife crime and shootings , for carrying a knife first offence 1 month imprisonment 2 years probation, 2nd knife offence 2 years imprisonment.
    For carrying a gun 6 months imprisonment 3 years probation , 2nd offence 3 years imprisonment…
    For murder we bring back hanging , 40 year prison term , or life imprisonment.
    For gang crime if there is 10 villains they all suffer the same fate..

    We must stop living in la, la, land you cannot talk about keeping people in prison what it cost ,when these same scum bags is driving around our neighbours and villages just shooting any and everyone , they know what they are doing they are selecting the areas , which to shoot up …

    Only those without eyes, ears…and the ability to rationalise facts and circumstances, and to draw their own conclusions, could not see the monumental irony…of the almost daily bloody murderous mayhem in this “beloved rock”…all the while every possible media niche continues to “celebrate” fifty years of progress, development..and yes…independence. My poor li’l head swims in incomprehension: what difference, if any, between:-
    authority, independence, responsibility, civic responsibility; governance; tipping-point; culpability; root-cause; cause-and-effect? ( Yes, you may add several more of your own)

    Could we perhaps find some external force, entity, or philosophical whipping-boy, to blame? Or should we merely…look in the mirror?

    Whenever the police attempt to crack down on crime and criminals in certain neighbourhoods all you hear are comments about them oppressing the poor black man. Its the poor black man who is out there shooting up other poor black men and women. Does anybody remember that right after a gun incident free Crop Over, lawyer Andrew Pilgrim that police held several men, including some of his clients, over the weekend and then didn’t charge them. Can we imagine what would have happened if some of these people were not detained?

    Our value systems have changed and part of the change has to do with the importation of culture. In this class-based Barbados society, the disenfranchised and marginalized resort to the commission of crime to sustain not just themselves, but the community in which they live. So the people who we see in the newspapers on a daily basis that are deemed by all and sundry to be violent, within the community they are seen as heroes, because they are providing social service and that is a reality we need to face. We need to confront this and turn around all corruption, from top to bottom…or we all go over the cliff….Deeper soul.

    Drugs and guns have taken over Barbados people here in the USA and other countries will soon stop coming to Barbados.Every one there is blaming the Government and Police for the foolishness the young people is doing.Please stop hurting Barbados.

    Well said Joy i agree with u on everything

  16. BAJAN September 2, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    Welcome to Bajanhistan. More guns, bullets and death than Afghanistan, Pakistan or any other ‘stan’ in the world.

    This is no laughing matter, the powers that be do not want this madness to cease, reasons being the majority of politicians are corrupt to the core, also they are CRIMINAL lawyers who must eat, no crime, no work for them or their agencies. We have a defense force of over 1500 trained personel that only works at independence parades, let them have joint operations with the police force and start with the blocks, dig up the blocks and remove all illegal structures as necessary , set up road blocks and search vehicles also, sea searches of fishing vessels yachts etc, we are a sovereign nation, we gotta start some where

  18. Bajan October 1, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    I agree with the above comments that the Defense Force should join force with the police and help to protect the country by random roadblock and searches etc.,. This would help a great deal to eliminate the useless killings. Also, have background checks (DBS) of immigrates coming into the country, thus building up our nation into a safer place and reduce crime rate.
