    in 1999, in response to isolated incidents of crime The DLP ran a national campaign on Crime and Violence and accused the then BLP government of not doing anything to combat the Crime situation. It further promised that if elected they would fix the Crime and Violnce problem. Where are those DLP voices now that our country is seeing a ‘shooting’ not to mention other crimes, on an almost daily basis?

    Have you examined the levels of crime in today’s world? Crime is an international problem it is not isolated to Barbados violent crime has reared it’s ugly head all over the world and criminality has reached a new level as those who are involved in criminal activity expend serious criminal energy. Methods are put in place to combat crime and i will tell you this Mr Part time preacher no particular Government will have all of the remedies for it.It is not partial to any Government, people like you need to pray about the crime situation instead of playing political football with every issue you just make yourself look silly with these donkey alerts.

      @Sherlock – True, there is much crime all over the world. Even in the UK especially among blacks and biracial groups, lots of stabbings, etc especially if you live on one of them bad estates aka projects. This crime situation will get worst especially when this privatization thing starts that they all want. The only people that will be safe is the 1% as they got their ammunition too and shooting range to practice. Shoot first ask questions later.

      @David E Hall – These people only have plans for themselves dear, once they get elected. Their main goal is raking that grea$e SCUM off the top of the SHEEP soup, then they will turn of the stove and leave the potatoes, dumplings, yams and eddoes underneath undercook. Blame the CHURCH AND the EDUCATION system too.

    Prayer tell me what does crime and violence have to do with the government. Not everything is a political issue or need a political response.Crime was in Barbados and all over the work for years.If there was war in heaven you most definitely will have war on earth,so suck it up deal with the unmannerly unruly children that are being raised without morals and stop looking for persons to blame and ask what can we all do as a nation and not what does the government plan to do.

    Crime happens all over the world it’s true but you Sherlock get a map of barbados out then pin point the shooting murder fatalities in the last 12 months then draw a circle around it how many square miles ? It’s no a huge state of America it’s not the uk it’s a tiny island and your crime rate per population and square miles is very worrying .

    The AG refusing to start back popping necks. Furthermore he want to release prisoners early. 31 of the 50 states in the USA still have the death penalty. We need to get rid of murderers…permanently.

    ….and all the Police were doing was driving helter skelter up and down Station Hilll with sirens blazing.
    Thought they had seen Peter Bradshaw walking up Station Hill and going to the back of the old Glendairy Prison to administer the word of the Lord to the yute…seeing that it was a Sunday.
