    Shooting had to stop. Fit cameras on all public transport would be helpful to future shooting etc police investigations.

    Evidently…no-one else was in the bus…no-one saw…and no-one heard…anything. Amazing. In broad daylight. In the middle of town. In front of witnesses. And right behind the H.Q. of the R.B.P.F. They most likely heard the shots. Amazing.

    Clearly, we have “arrived”….at our destination…either intended or unintended. Should we pray? Pray more? Set up a C.O.I on crime? Add to the agenda for next meeting of the Thursduh Throng?

    Lord…are you really listening?

    Gun crime on this once peaceful island is becoming a major problem.This issue with guns has to be eradicated before it is too late. This problem can have a serious effect on the tourist industry if it is not nipped in the bud. Tourists will not feel safe on the island things get out of control.

    Our politicians , the protected ones and the major criminals have no real concern for barbados or us real bajans…
    No water in our taps, raw sewage on the streets , flooding every time the rain comes, 100s and 100s of guns coming into barbados monthly and a lot of people who are fake ass Christians living big off the proceeds of crime ,knowing who the criminals are this is an act which needs to be enforced in barbados…

    Lets be logical! The B-43 bus is operated on a designated route! The bus has an operator- (driver) and a conductor I suppose. Now there is a passenger whom the driver picks up. The driver should have been alert to the pedestrians and traffic along the route. So did the shooter follow in an other vehicle and ambush the injured man from the rear of the bus? That is the logic that has to be proven.
