        Myth most of the criminals involved never left bbarbsdos. Stop making excuses. Many of those deported for violent crime crimes were criminals and bullies before they left. People are being deported for overstaying. By treating your own people as outcast is disgusting. Domestic violence, Child abuse are treated very lightly in Barbados. Time to accept you people and help them resettle. Everything is fine as long as the money comes in.

    I heard these six gun shots as I was in the oistins area……sounded as clear as day. Immediately after I said to myself, I hope no one got shot.

    Sigh……need to find some gainful employment for these people.

      RD Willz I got news for you. Unemployment has nothing to do with the gang violence Barbados is seeing right now. Most of these men are ‘gainfully employed’ in the lucrative drug trade. The fights are over drugs, territory and reputation.

    il bet that in silver hill atleast 5 police officers live in that area . and the same for all of the gang related areas.theres always talk of who have guns and who is doing all the bad things. yet these socall police officers chose to look the other way. saying you awright we gotta live here. like i say before policing is not just a job to earn money its an obligation to protect. the commishiner live in one of the worst ares in the country .always at the main bar there still all the crime .you dont want to get involve the give up the badge. simple as that.people in the force 20 yrs and never had to write a report .

    • Bajan March 13, 2017 at 9:11 am

      Since you hearing the talk on the street, maybe YOU, Orlando, should take the lead in your community and give the police information and go all the way and give evidence in court against the people you know are shooting and committing all types of crimes. Talk it over with your family first and see what they think about it. I am sure they would walk the streets feeling safer and sleep more comfortable at night too.

    • Realist March 13, 2017 at 11:52 am

      Umm…they are right. They do have to live there. It’s fine for you to take your righteous stance but do you know the dangers officers are faced with every day? Bullets don’t automatically bounce off one’s skin just because you have a badge. They have to think about the well being of their family.

      I understand your frustration but in a situation like that, if I had to live near to deviant elements I would look the other way to. It’s just a job at the end of the day. And a man’s first obligation is to his family.

    And everyday you all will come on hear and repeat the same thing?? Sound like broken records now. I would keep saying go and read Revelation and see violence has increased and will get worst on the earth. The shootings and killings wont stop because you sit and murmur, get your lives right with God in Jesus name amen.

    mr bajan . i dont even believe you is a bajan anyways . no fight aint over no drug or territory . where i come from its just lawlesness plain and simple… you know what im saying is true. you maybe one of the makebelieve officers im talking bout .my name is orlando . whats yours

    • Bajan March 14, 2017 at 2:44 am

      Orlando behave yourself. People having three and four sexual partners is lawlessness. People driving down Broad Street the wrong way is lawlessness. People having information about the violence and not reporting it is lawlessness. Men shooting and killing each other is BUSINESS, plain and simple. Help the Police clean up the crime. Afterall you is Bajan too and you want a safer community. I going help you my brother, this is the Crime Stoppers number 1 800 8477. Its free and confidential.

  11. L King March 13, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    If they’re not Bajans deport them immediatly upon released from prison and like Trump close the boarders because if Caricom aren’t providing extra resources to prevent crime then why should beautiful Barbados have to put with lawless outsiders.

    IF some of the crimes are being committed by Bajans let them serve the due sentence on the island THEN said them to Africa to complete a program of helping the poor – for they know of poverty there, corruption and injustice. I’ve been there!

    Lots of families know who have the guns , who do the drugs look around see what you see , people living with the life styles…but then look at the fools who ends up at (DODDS) young foolish and black ….
    If the gun violence was effecting the white people in barbados something would be done………..but then the big question who controls what ??????????????????????????????????…….

    • Jennifer March 13, 2017 at 6:58 pm

      Hahahahaha – Boy I like you. Wish a lot more of us could see and start questioning too.

  15. L King March 13, 2017 at 5:44 pm

    @jrsmith. Aren’t you forgetting that 92% of the islanders are black – so why even mention that they are black!

    Sounds like trouble in paradise.
    Does anyone remember Jamaica in the Sixties? It was a life sentence for possessing a bullet, and woe betide an individual found in possession of a gun. A life sentence was a real probability. Radical solutions are needed to solve serious problems, not postering.
    You need a secure means whereby the public can pass on information confidentially to retain their anonymity.You need an amnesty to facilitate the surrendering of firearms without fear of prosecution.

    Someone called Ricky name in Nelson Street. What about Sherwin Patterson aka Jersey Jersey US drugs deportee and one of the biggest criminals in Barbados aided by the boys in uniform. Also feel he is untouchable and moves a lot of cocaine, Marijuana and involved human trafficking of strippers in the clubs from Jamaica and other parts of the region.
