    This news is truly sad, but my question to Barbados Today is why our newspapers only bring negative news from Jamaica, Its rare to none to see our media cover or Highlight positive news from Jamaica. Reports like this would only lead bajans, and other Caribbean citizens to think of Jamaica and Jamaicans as only crazy people, this is truly sad. Why couldn’t we highlight these great stories,reports from Jamaica that happen in the same week.
