      Definitely was. The incident occurred not too far from where I live. The man’s screams and shots woke me up. I am now accepting Donald Trump’s views that we need to arm the innocent. The criminals are armed while we are not. How can we fight back?

    This is set to get worst. I would like to be armed too sitting in my rocking chair behind the door.

    Back in 1980 / 81 after the Mariel boat lift from Cuba a huge crime wave swept south Florida because of the Cuban criminals that Castro had allowed to leave Cuba on the boats.

    Well the on the front cover of November 1981 issue of TIME magazine there was a picture of the State of Florida with South Florida highlighted that read ‘SOUTH FLORIDA PARADISE LOST’

    That same thing can be said now about Barbados , bajans as usual are always in denial and will never admit to it , but Barbados is now ” A LOST PARADISE ‘

    Another one that will be off to DODDS to chill with friends and explore the criminal mind for using a firearm.
    Gun charges should be 20 years. Death due to gun shots ,life without parole.
    You-people like marching, its time to march for the removal of the AG.
