    This breaks my heart. Aside from the victim and his poor family, it breaks my heart as an adopted Bajan citizen that my colleague and I warned ex-Commissioner Dottin in his office in 2010 that this epidemic was coming, and how it could be prevented. His response? He laughed in our faces and said “It won’t happen here”…. Welcome to Barbados 2017.
