    Thanks to the public another firearm has been taken off the street before someone be come another victim of a shooting. The general public must be more helpful in aiding the police because it is the right thing to do. There is no need for people to be carrying guns about in Barbados

    Create national anonymous hotline for tippers and you will get the place cleaned up in no time. Start handing out harsher sentences to these thugs and send a strong message.

      Goes to show that we can predict how some children will behave later in life even when they are young students. Those who show signs of trouble early on should be aggressively helped in an intervention program. This type of news is so sad and points to an overall downfall of society.
