    Face the facts folks, Barbados has evolved into a violent place on account of many things. Mainly because of politics. All a suspect or blatantly guilty person has to do is indicate how many votes he or she is worth. and bam they get begged for and get off the hook. Our judicial system is literally controlled by politicians. Police is doing their work but penalties are very lenient. Our economy is in such a bad state and encompassed by polarized or partisan politics. We have evolved into a state of high crimes through many faucets, drugs, guns, poor education, anxiety of everyone especially of youths, and high cost of living through relentless and unmerciful taxations.

    To repeat the words of the man from the 70’s with the cheap purple suit , glasses and walking stick King Dyal . . . . the ” black cattle ” continues to kill one another.

    The ” black cattle ” from the 70’s has produced more “black cattle ” who continues with the production of idiots.

    The negro bajan mentality and the mentality of most negroes , kill your fellowman and then try to blame it on the Caucasian because of the economic situation . . . .no jobs , no housing etc.

    Barbados is now a piece of 2 x 4 rock of idiots producing idiots.

    Buy the way , how come the whites , Indians , Chinese , etc are not shooting up and killing each other like the ” cattle ” are doing to each other ?

    The RBPF have to become creative in getting guns out of the hands of lawless young men. Zero tolerance must be revisited. Stop and check methods and raids have to be increased in a big way. Motor cyclists and cars transport the guns and drugs. Police have to setup road blocks and traps. Intelligence based action is one thing but if a policeman observes a block youth looking like he has a gun he most likely does .
