      If you compare the sizes of the countries and populations the percentages of crime are the same. My children are bajan but i am so glad we moved and live in another country. Its such a shame as barbados is a beautiful country with beautiful people.

      Mazie Taylor I do read their news. I don’t know what news you read, but deadly shootings are up in BIM, and BIM has changed over the years. Be careful

      • harry turnover April 9, 2017 at 6:44 pm

        But BIM is NO WHERE near Trinidad and Jamaica…..I have no doubt that you read their news,the point is do you UNDERSTAND what you are READING…last count Trinidad had 141 and Jamaica ended 2016 with 1,350 and by Jan.21st this year they had 82 murders.

        • hcalndre April 10, 2017 at 6:25 am

          @Mazie & harry; look at the population of jamaica and trinidad to that of barbados and see where barbados would be. Barbados uses numbers and percentages when it suits the situation.

    Gun crime in BIM is as often as the sports and weather in the news. Got an AG who just collecting a big fat pay cheque every month while doing nothing. coupled with a PM who is scared to make changes to his line up of ministers . Well never the less, it’s half a dozen of one and six of another.

    • Haskell Murray April 9, 2017 at 10:00 am

      No politician can stop something like this , what they have to do is cutoff the channels where the guns enter Barbados

      • Ann April 9, 2017 at 11:32 am

        I support your suggestion. The guns are The biggest problem and who is allowing them in. No one wants to take responsibility in stopping the violence.

    Why each time something happens,u can trust for someone to mention politics?Whichever government is in power,acts of crime,accidents, murders will occur.You can always tell when people or not educated,when we fight against each other and kill one another and have to face the law courts,go and say a politician made me kill him,when someone gets injured in a car accident say the politician made me knock down that person.It’s time to rise above the ignorance,when it relates to certain issues.

    • Coralita April 9, 2017 at 1:33 pm

      Thank you!!! Sheer ignorance from some. Blaming politicians like if they raised the criminals. Blame the parents, they got them and raised them and they know of their behaviour.

    • hcalndre April 10, 2017 at 6:49 am

      @Janelle, what you think that the politician is elected to do, only draw a check and get rich ? Crime is the #1 issue on most citizens wish list and if the person in charge of that ministry don`t get crime under control he/she would got to go. You must stop giving these politicians a free ride.

  10. Greengiant April 9, 2017 at 11:11 am

    You all want to go to heaven without dying ( give the police information on your Sons / daughters ) who are carrying guns, involved in selling or using drugs. If they’re not working, having large sums of money, expensive clothes or jewelry this is reason to get the police investigating your children, youthful or mature relatives. While they may get prosecuted and serve lengthy sentences in prison, you may save their lives giving them the chance for a better life later.

    Rather than taking their money, gifts and other benefits, you need to be rejecting these temptations regardless of how challenging life may be. You can choose to pay an attorney or funeral director, but you will pay, it’s that simple. So those who are blaming the system, government, poverty and everything else need to look in the mirror and ask who or what do I know or suspect that could be contributing to this growing violence in our society. Think about you young children, relatives, and those of your friends and work mates who can possibly be exposed to this high risk, selfish, evil environment. Yes it’s our duty collectively to snitch to save our lives, those of our fellow citizens and family members.

    • Coralita April 9, 2017 at 1:33 pm

      Well said!!!

    • Milli Watt April 9, 2017 at 2:31 pm

      why should i then de police won’t have anything to do and you won’t have anything to run ur mout pon… takes a lot to make the world go round. just doing my part

      • Coralita April 9, 2017 at 2:42 pm

        Milli Watt open your mind and think.

        When the parents hide their criminal children they have time to break your house and mine, they have time to rob you and me, they have time to shoot you and me. If the parents give them up, then the police can get them off the streets. The police alone cannot and will never be able to solve all crime, If we want safe communities we have to do our part to assist.

        If people take your advice, they will see crime and don’t report it. Is that what you want, really????? It is the responsibility of citizens to report criminal activity.

    Barbados: Land of the flying fish, flying bullets, and declining population of living persons. On de flip side we has an increasing population…of guns….and gunA-slingers.

    Peoples…please remember de CRIMESTOPPERS NUMBER …1-800-TIPS. It might just save a life…like yours.

  13. Biscuits April 9, 2017 at 1:13 pm

  15. Donild Trimp April 9, 2017 at 1:48 pm

    @Tony Webster – no need to call crimestoppers.

    Spend a Saturday afternoon in any rumshop and the answer to where and how the guns enter Barbados is common knowledge.

    This is easy detective work for the RBPF.

    The regulars can also tell you who in the community owns an unlicensed firearm and who are the legal owners.

  16. Tony Waterman April 9, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    @Ryvan Springer!!!!! I agree with you, and we both will be taking some Licks for saying so.

    @Sharon Ellis!!!!! I don’t believe so much in the Uneducated apect of it, i believe more in the Inability of the Government to Lower the Unemploment Rate is more the Problem. with an unemployment rate of at least 10-12% (Maybe more) Lawlessness is sure to increase.

    @Kevin!!!! NO!!!!! You Check the STATS, but Check “”Per Capita”” and then YOU come again, i have been say all along that it is people in Administration in Barbados who are thinking like you, that are the Problem when it comes to Crime in This Island. That is why everything is going so so wrong, and PARADISE is being QUICKLY being turned into “PARADISE LOST”
    Everyone Including Some Officials keep referring to Jamaica and T&T whenever anyone Challenges them on this subject, WHY??? let them look after their problems, and we should pay attention ONLY to getting our House in Order.

    @Mazie Taylor!!!!!! Stop living in your FOOLS PARADISE, look at the STATS “”PER CAPITA”” and you WILL see a very different Picture.

    @Ryvan Springer!!! I am with you, up to Last Night/Yesterday, 1 Dead, 1 Seriously Injured in SHOOTING.

    @Sharon Ellis!!!! Before you say it’s NOT Close, PLEASE look at the Stats “Per Capita” you WILL have a different View, i am sure.

    @Eve Watts!!! That is because if you look at their reports, the lump Petty Crime and SERIOUS Crime together, so whem PETTY CRIME drops 50-60% then they simply say, “CRIME WENT DOWN”

    @Alex Alleyne!!! Quite True, but outside of being Incompetant, he does NOT have any room to manoeuver, as for the AG. well!!! He is a Lost Cause, he has all the problems listed, but has never came up with a List of SOLUTIONS.

    @Haskell Murray!!!! Sorry Sir, you are wrong on that count, they can put Legislation in Place, that would make anyone wanting to commit crime, think before they act, the Last time i mentioned this “SOME” people TRIED to Castigate me for wanting a Dictatorship in Barbados, but the Person i was speaking was always ELECTED with MAjORITIES, and by Fair VOTES, not like the EXTRA BOX in St.Phillip at 5.30 AM
    Find out why there is “”NO GUN VIOLENCE IN SINGAPORE””

    @Veroniva Boyce!!! Dont look for the “BEES” to be that much better, we NEED and ALTERNATIVE, and it is time that Barbados has a “VIABLE” Third Party than can be given the “BALANCE OF POWER”

    @Kaiser Sose!!! If they really want to rid us of this Scourge, YES That will be an aletrnative to what we have now.

    @Lynda Bonnett!!! Yes it’s commonly referred to in Other Countries (mainly USA) as “DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS) and this is NOT the First time for this in Barbados.
    It is usually associated with Gangs and Drugs.

    @Janelle Wickham!!!! Because When the Politicians sit Idly by and do “NOTHING” Hell yes!!! they are part of the Problem

    @Coralita!!!! Same answer for you as i gave to Janelle above.

    @Greengiant!!!I undertand you, and you do have a point, BUT!!! “THE LOVE OF” a better lifestyle is more tempting, than giving up the Perpretrators of Crime, Family or Not.

    @Tony Webster!!! And let me remind that there is NO CHANCE of anyone in Barbados getting to know who called in the TIP, as it is NOT ANSWERED in Barbados, thats a CANADIAN in CANADA, with TOP CANADIAN FEDERAL Security Clearance on the Other end. who then redirects the Information to RBPF.

    1-800-TIPS, is the SAME Number i would call here in Canada.

    We must all blame the politicians, these people were put in office to (Govern Barbados ) this includes the security of every one of us , we are not supposing to be walking around barbados dodding bullets and being scared in our own homes………………………….
    If the 1% of barbados were effected by the guns and drugs, you bet your ass , our politicians would make sure the madness stops, they dont care for our black people , they have done nothing to help to stop the madness…………………………………
    Too many people the criminal element in barbados is being protected bajans are in denial , why no one is caught importing the guns , because the dock and airport is helping them……….

    • Jennifer April 9, 2017 at 4:12 pm

      @jrsmith – Well said. Mind you the 1% is watching all of their previous and current plans come into FRUITION.

      • Jennifer April 9, 2017 at 4:51 pm

        You know one of the organizations we have to point the trigger at>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> is that AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL. They perform a similar task like the UN. They have put restrictions on these DEVELOPING and other countries world wide, on tackling crime HARSHLY too.

  24. Saga Boy April 9, 2017 at 4:18 pm

    Tony Webster and Ryvan Springer or whoever your name is you are a liar. Stop misleading persons by suggesting that Barbados has a higher crime rate per 100,000 than Tdad or Jamaica. Trinidad’s crime rate is among the top ten in the world T no 7 a few years ago. Venezuela was no one. Barbados is no where near those two or Jamaica. The information is available on the Internet on international homicides statistics. Stop with the stupid emotionalism and blaming the government for every thing.

  25. Saga Boy April 9, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    @jrsmith you are talking nonsense of the highest proportion. If your son or daughter committed a crime who would you blame? The AG? Explain logically the direct correlation between the criminal who commits crime and the politician. And do it in a manner to demonstrate that your logic is representative and be projected into the entire population of Barbados. Stop making excuses for lawless people.

    • Jennifer April 9, 2017 at 5:05 pm

      The whole long and short of the string is that when you have dismissed the laws of the “God Head” for SERPENTINE LAWS and CONTROL. You will get all of this type of anarchy.

    the politicians should share some of the blame but the gunslinger know right from wrong, education and a lack of ambition is the problem, bajans got money to party and buy expensive clothing so why not come togather and open businesses to uplift their communities. Once you’re ignorant people will use as a tool look and see who getting killed or jailed, sorry but this would never stop as long as persons getting rich off of it and life ain’t fair

    Well folks who wants to talk crap about number of murders in Trinidad and Jamaica remember this both of those two island have over a million plus each Barbados might be 300.000 give or take.So do the math or just look at how small Barbados is 166 square miles or 21 by 14 eventually it gine catch up to ya.

  32. jrsmith April 10, 2017 at 4:45 am

    @, all, hail, hail, barbados suppose to have some laws in place , but its no sense having laws and not enforcing them…
    What should happen to help stop the madness , a simple stop and search law , use our police back up by the Defense Force everyday ……
    Stop and search is such a tool………you pick up…
    Drunken drivers ….
    Guns …..
    Drugs …..
    Stolen property……
    Stolen cars……
    Not insured vehicles …..
    Wanted persons …….
    Un road worthy vehicles ….
    Men with under age teenage girls……… …..
    Exposure of certain people who you never think would be involve with crime…………………………………………………………………..
    This is not something magical , its a benefit to our country its a start , we are heading for (total disaster ) but why our Government is doing nothing…(who is being protected here )….
    It doesn’t take all that man power ( 1 Police Officer )+ ( 2 Defence Force armed Personnel ) 3 units for a period of time spread around Barbados and the same around our seaport and coastline………….

  35. Carlisle Norville April 10, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    Even though some of we police in the Royal Barbados police Force , should be behind bar’s including dem Drug Squad boy’s, as a law abiding bagan I would like a new unit establish of young verry highly trained officer’s, with all right’s to target all them drug lord’s
    we got here in Barbados , especially them that some drug squad officer’s on their pay roll ,( Barbados rotten to the core, people you would never believe are in the gun running business, & others in association with certain business people bringing in cocaine & gun’s, (i would like somebody to tell me, how de hell we are going to fix crime in Barbados, when we got criminal’s in high Places.!

  36. jrsmith April 10, 2017 at 3:08 pm

    @, Carlisle N, hail , hail on the spot , must further add ,, a day will come when the ones who’s carring out the protection , is going to need protecting themselves because they know too much, which will also put their families at risk , when the dog ++++ hits the fan….you will then see who runs for cover ………………………

    • Jennifer April 10, 2017 at 4:47 pm

      @jrsmith and Carlisle N – well said, these are the house Negros. But my mum always said when your OWN dog bites you ………….. you well bite. We the low down of Bim is in serious economic trouble out here just like the lot in the USA. For now we can subtract the police (kkk) gunning down in the streets of America. We doing the gunning down we self.

      • Jennifer April 10, 2017 at 4:51 pm

        Once we get that impending dollar collapse and that war in Syria well on the way by that “good” man MR Trump, that should get things started down here.
