    Is this the magistrate who remands unemployed teenagers for petty offences? Is there classism in or sentencing?
    How about a minister driving without road tax or insurance? Who determines sentencing policy in Barbados?

    He should be spending Independence Celebrations and Christmas along with the Jail along with the Judge.
    Why the favoritism ? A serious crime deserves a serious punishment. Let the punishment fit the crime as this is the only thing that some of our young people will ever respect.
