      Realistically, it is perhaps too late to stop what already looks to be out of hand. I have heard nothing about resolution and prevention. However, on numerous occasions I have heard there are other countries which are worse than Barbados and that crime is down, that it is not so bad. I hear excuses by authority and citizens who neglect to blame the things they should. The chances are the worse is yet to come, at this point to think otherwise is not being realistic.

    People stop kidding ,you all selves , look at the low lives who is doing the shooting silly black young men , these are people who seems not to think for themselves ….
    What I would like to know how up to date (BPF) is on data technology local and international , which would give an indication as to if this gun was used before and how many times and should be able to profile the idiot shooter…
    My take lots of people in the right places , is doing the importation of guns to barbados, also families is up to what is going on,, then the protected ones who do what they like because who they are…………………..

    Yes some people are always saying that these things happen every where else. That may be so but this is where we live and we have to be concerned about it other wise we’ll soon be like prisoners in our houses. There are some places that I would have gone at one time that I am not going to go now, I am caucious even at the bus stop or on the bus and going into some stores, how much worse is it going to get.

      Bonnie Weekes, that`s the way bajans like to make excuses for problems in barbados, eg, if its potholes, oh, where the visitors come from, they are potholes, shootings, oh, they`re shootings in NY, but I`ll say this, no one wants to come to barbados for a holiday and get shot, even the PM sometime ago said that about the potholes. Water woes, you will hear which country don`t get water so why are bajans are worried?

    Oh boy again? It will only ease off when the government and community leaders begin to work together. But I think what they need to do is deport all illegals and work are with them that keep on commiting serious crimes. If its the case that they’re long term unemployed let the government pay for their schooling so as to get them a good trade for most of these people were born and raised in dysfunctional families.

    It is so sad our young black men are killing each other over petty things that can be resolved without killing each other
