    This is really gun town. What is the government or judiciary doing to combat this lawlessness? Seems Iike the lawless are in control of BARBADOS.
    We need a serious revolution in this country, not the volatile type but one that is in the interest of country.
    I cannot believe this is the Barbados in which I grew up more than six decades ago.
    May God have mercy on Barbados and deliver us of this sordid mess.

    According to a comment I saw on this website, what is the government going to do to combat this lawlessness? Almost every day, we hear another person being shot down for this and that. Time to stop the madness now!

    It’s now past the point of no return , there is no hope for Barbados. Quoting a foreigner who said to me two weeks ago ” the the only thing Barbados has going for it now is Rhianna ” .

  5. greengiant March 17, 2017 at 12:54 pm

    Ossie Moore, both you and the foreigner needs optical examination. There is so much positives in this country at the moment and so many positive ambassadors apart from Rhianna.
    However some of you only see and hear the negatives, that’s because your sole mission is to criticize the government at every turn, while at the same time dragging the country’s image into the muck. One example of positive is the name Darian King. Check him out.

    More than 60 years ago @LorettaGriffith . The world has changed. You have changed; I do hope. There’s nothing of awe to see here, however, in fact, this is just a new local tool to the very familiar face of violence…Across the World. Barbados does not make guns yet guns are raining down and trust me that’s only but a drop in the bucket. They are a lot more guns where that one came from.

    Guns, however, do not kill people; cliche but people kill people. increased pressure will see increased violence. People resort to using a higher power in otherwise powerless situations. Violence is a power man cannot rid society of once governments continue to perpetuate it as a means of power.

    When it wasn’t guns it happened to be a cutlass yet the outcry was not …what the government is doing about all the cutlasses.

    The real question is, what can you change? Change begin with each one of us.

    Me too, I’ve been to the island 53 times, and although so many of these shooting are drug related, why put yourself at risk of being at the wrong place at the wrong time

  8. Ossie Moore March 17, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    To answer your questions MS. Griffith and Mr.Bayne the Barbados Government will do nothing as long as it’s just the rank and file bajans getting shot down.

    The Barbados Government and will step up to the plate and start to do something about it when there are no more cruise ships docking in the port , and when the planes from North America , Canada , England and Europe start to arrive GIA half empty.

    So until then it will be gun play at the OK corral of the Caribbean you as usual

  9. Ossie Moore March 17, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    Okay greengiant ! you are just like the majority of bajans ( with respect to my bajan friends ) ALWAYS IN DENIAL . . .

    Shooting up the place always happens in Jamaica , Trinidad , Guyana and every place else , but shooting up the place ” does not , cannot and will never happen in Barbados “.

      It’s true what you say it’s so true that it’s time to stop the indoctrination of white black divide excuses excuses you can’t find any excuse to kill your own . Barbados is not 3rd world it’s a beautiful island many bajans travel move mix . So much rubbish chatted . The days of slavery are gone bajan people are no more slaves to the powers that be than the brits the Canadians the Americans etc . Beautiful little island so much investment so many tourists beautiful weather the government need to get a grip quick .

    @greengiant!!!! So!!! are you saying that the Attorney General is wrong to go seek the Help that he should have asked for years ago, id this NOT an admission that things are out of hand????
    It is FOOLS like you that have allowed this to happen, by NOT admitting that things were NOT going in the desired direction in the first place.

    BTW!!! The Country’s Image is already in the muck, fuelled by the BOZOS that we have in Command.

    @Ossie Moore!!!! You got it, and that is why we are where we are Today, it was always happening elsewhere, so we did not have to worry, but!!! Now we do.

    BTW!!! We dont NEED an election to replace the DLP with the BLP, for God’d Sake PLEEEASE make the Fledging Party the Power Broker (Balance of Power) , that’s the only way the Grip of the other Two WILL be Broken, and that’s the only way we will move ahead.

  13. Ossie Moore March 17, 2017 at 3:30 pm

    To Mr. Waterman ! You are very right and like the Bajans would say ” ya tek de wurds right outa ma mout ” being that as you say

    ” it was always happening somewhere else ( Jamaica , Trinidad , Guyana etc.etc. ) so we did not have to worry, but !!! Now we do.

    But to add insult to injury the Barbados Gov. is not doing anything about it thinking that the problem is going to go away , but the only things that go away if you don’t fix them is your teeth !

  14. Beresfordo March 17, 2017 at 4:23 pm

    The government can hardly be faulted for the gun thugs in Barbados. Perhaps that’s the problem.in other words,do take a look at yourselves.

    It is because the people from Barbados are morally inferior to people in the rest of the world. Maybe there is something toxic in the island water supply. It causes the crazy disease, makes people violent and unreasonable.

    Kim Gaskin, the past with its GOOD and EVIL lives in the presence, as well as the, old is in new concealed, and new is in the old revealed. In any event, when a psychopath wreak havoc on society, the first thing the psychotherapist does is to examine his PAST in an effort to ascertain the reason or reasons as to why he does the things he do. So it is not unreasonable to concluded that the genocidal colonization of the of the people of African extraction has in some small way contributed to the social pathology we are witnessing in the Black community today. Now it can be also argue that the Divide and Conquer ideology instituted by the plantocracy to incited dissent has contributed to the attitude of hatred with now see in the Black world today.

    • Jennifer March 17, 2017 at 8:19 pm

      @Mark – Well said. And it is not a small way, but a very BIG WAY. It is responsible for all of the behavior of blacks WORLDWIDE. What we see is a SCATTERING WITHIN A SCATTERING as they run to settle in different countries, suffering the same oppression. Instead of researching this information and its effects we go behind the veil of silence and embarrassment and hide and tell ourselves it is not so anymore, not even understanding that we are the remnant of our ancestors currently with the remnant of the same colonialist suffering the same things in a different form. You can only truly emancipate yourself by educating yourself and your children.

      Kay Critchlow, let me asking you this question: why is it that the European, the Chinese and the East Indian, are so far ahead of the Black man in the business affairs? And let me add this: our worldview is shaped by our customs our values and traditions! Take cricket for example: it is from the remanence of our colonial past but yet it still continues to exact some influence in our way of life still this day.

      Mark Fenty March 17, 2017 at 8:56 pm

      Kay Critchlow, would you believe me if I tell you that the European, the Chinese and the East Indian had over four- hundred years ahead of the Black man to perfect thier business expertise?

    • Mark Fenty
      Mark Fenty March 17, 2017 at 8:58 pm

      Kay Critchlow, when the European, the Chinese and the East Indian were trading amongst each other, the Black man was still shackled to the institution of slavery. So you are able to see how the historical consequences of slavery still continues to have a detrimental effect on the Black man in the business affairs today?

    • Mark Fenty
      Mark Fenty March 17, 2017 at 9:07 pm

      Kay Critchlow, why to this day we still have white people all over the world who still dislike Black people because of the colour of their skin? So how can you in good faith argue that the past doesn’t consciously and unconsciously influence the future?

      • Jennifer March 17, 2017 at 9:52 pm

        Mark – This populace is blind and staggering with wine (Lies). The recessive is currently controlling the dominant. The skin thing all has great biblical significance. We need to love our own and ourselves and get our identity back. IF THESE MEN and women GET THEIR IDENTITY YOU WILL SEE A NEW NATION EMERGE. Watch birth of a nation. We have been assimilated into another people culture. Their RELIGION, HOLIDAYS, NAMES, new NATIONALITY, and COUNTRIES. But the question is why. These people can ONLY SEE THEIR PAIN, NO ONE ELSE’S. No compassion at all. Get on with things. As soon as they do not get what they want, attack and throw toys from the pram.

      Kay Critchlow, let me end by saying this: look at the manner in which some Black people bleach their skin? If Black is suppose to be beautiful, why it is that so many black people bleach to achieve a fair complexion? Now is there historical circumstances as to why some Blacks believe that a fair complexion is more acceptable? And do you know that there wasn’t one successful Revolt in America during slavery because the House Slave which the master favored over the field-slave, undermined all of the field-slaves plans by informing the master? We have been our worse enemy from the days of our enslavement to the present.

  17. Sarifa Patel March 17, 2017 at 6:03 pm

    So what do you think the Trinidad government is doing about the 100 murders there for the year. Rumor has it that these bodies are found without certain organs. Are tgey being sold for profit. The wickedness of the world of today can never be solved by any government. To combat such evil man has to change in their hearts. No matter what one says if a person is bent on evil you cant change them. They must come to know their own evils and then change and only them will nations get better.

  18. Jennifer March 17, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    @Kim Gaskin and Kay Critchlow – One of the things that black people was deprived of was reading during slavery for the fear of them finding out their identity. Black people still do not like to read today. May i suggest to you guys to google the effects/impact of slavery yesterday and today and its impact on the black family. The result of this terrorist atrocity on the political, financial, educational, technological and social of the region. And why the majority are eating from the bottom of the bucket and still being affected. Without this educational WEAPONRY IT SHOWS HOW IGNORANT WE STILL ARE WHILE THE OTHERS KEEP SILENT AND LAUGH.

    This is hear and now . I’m sick to death of double talk. Since 2008, and I go every year , Barbados has changed to the worst in many many area. It has nothing to do with slavery and other garbage.

  21. Jennifer March 17, 2017 at 9:40 pm

    Garbage!!!!!! If I was like you I would say the same thing. God don’t sleep.

  22. Dewayne yetman March 18, 2017 at 1:19 am

    We bajans will ever be the Pearl of the Caribbean. We will always be on top because we are smarter and adopt well to white culture than other islands. We are better than Jamaicans and Trinidadian. We are a different breed and will never fall. They say a fall comes after pride but we will not fall. Those other island ppl that we dislike we will never turn to them for help because we bajans are smarter.

  23. b man March 18, 2017 at 3:04 am

    Everyone have choices we need to blaming others for our actions and stop complaining but alot of people have weak minds very dishonest and ignorant bad so the only way to solve a problem is violence look at how they drive or treat each other there’s no love but remember the youths watching
