    Five people with guns five , five,, what the (Attorney General ) and the Government is doing about guns in Barbados..
    seems its so easy to get hold of guns as like buying thing ……..
    I will bet any one if the 1% of our population of people in Barbados who is always protected and secure by our politicians, were the ones who is being effected , by the gun crime it wouldn’t last for a month …. Its an issue of them and us………………………………
    It will all back fire one day , you people at the ports and where ever , who are allowing the guns and drugs into our barbados , one mistake thats all it take,,
    People all have a good Look around in Barbados , look at certain people life styles, ask you all selves the questions which is necessary, to come a reasonable conclusion who is doing what, why is it always the silly minos, who is ending up at (DODDS)…………

    Gun crime in Barbados is out of control and action is required before it becomes a tsunami army, totally unstoppable.

    We visit Barbados each year and have been doing so since the late 1980’s. In the last few years we read about more and more stabbings and gun crime. Very sad.

    Decimate the economy you will decimate the society. If there are no opportunities if people can’t get money to buy the things they want and need, if it seems like there is no hope crime will be the result.

    People in barbados is hurting by a bad government , but is not willing to stand up and do anything about it…
    Its coming too late Barbados would go totally broke and failed…….
    Bajans need to drop the party stupidness and push the people who is failing our country out of office… each individual constituency needs to move a vote of confidence on these out of control politicians , getting them out one by one………………..

    The major problem in Barbados , party politics is going to totally destroy our country……… the selfishness by bajans a they useless parties………….

    The government has absolutely NOTHING to do with this crime situation in Barbados, We as parents and the young men who decide that they will waste their time and the government’s money when they are in school are to blame. Everyone has choice. Many of these young men do not have the requisite qualifications to get the type of work that they think they should have so they decide to get involved in drugs or to rob and kill. One sees five and six year old children working hard in other countries why do our men want to live a life of luxury by stealing?
    We need to stop the crap about not using capital punishment and DO something before the situation gets worst.

      Well said…the political pundits use every incident to push their agendas! Crime is present in times of plenty, as well as times of need. Unfortunately, our society has become extremely materialistic and that is more than likely the driving force behind crime. Everyone wants to live ‘like the Jones’ but few wish to put in the hard work! It all boils down to the choices we make and the guidance we receive.

    That T intersection needs a police surveillance camera. Lots of tourist transits that area, and as well local public.

    @jrsmith what the government have to do with crime in Barbados? Factors such as lack of discipline, respect, lack of a fear of God and bad upbringing contribute to crime. We have a Muslim community in Barbados and we hardly hear of their members being involved in crime. You sound like a political lackey. Barbados has become a godless society.
