    The Merrymen said it back in the 60’s . . . the guns.

    This little island is indeed an enigma. Your nation is in a declining economic, moral, political and social state and no one seems to realize it. It’s absolutely painful to watch. Your leaders and policy makers are totally useless, they fail you repeatedly, they are mostly tired old men and women devoid of any new ideas, creativity and innovation, sorry to say, but from my observation, there seems to be no vision for this country. Are you Barbadians aware that your gun related violence is unusually high…even abnormal when you consider other island nations? Take Japan, an island with a population of over 127 million compared to your 270,000 and 147,000 Sq. miles compared to your 166 Sq. Miles. In case you guys have been living under a rock, it has less gun related violence and deaths. What I find even more alarming about this island is that no one seems to be in shock…no one seems to be panicking. Your police chiefs, Attorney General, Prime Minister, parliamentarians and civil society all seem oblivious to what would be considered a national crisis in other countries where the size and populations are much larger. There is a shooting almost every other day on this island and not one word from your elected officials. Barbados is like a twilight zone. For an island this size you’ve got quite a few guns on your streets. Just another day in paradise I guess. What the hell is going on with you people…..why are you not calling for the heads of your leaders? You’re supposed to be an educated lot. Something has gone horribly wrong with this island and nobody seems to care. Mark my words; you will all care in a few years when this island has descended into Chaos. Those that have ears to hear let them hear!

      Mr. Crowley you deserve an award for what you have written, do you believe that these ministers in the government pays any attention to these matters? This bunch is only interested in a pay check and taxing the living life out of its citizens. I heard a person on radio a few days ago saying that the gun related deaths and crime is not as high as other places and I wonder if he is an apologist. As you and I know that Barbados with 275.000 people and 166 sq. miles. that the numbers are outrageous. Calling for the heads of the elected officials in Barbados? This PM said the electorate gave them 5 years and he is going take every day of it, so the people could talk until the cows come home, they can`t be removed until the next election and what is worse the people would only talk about the crime for a few days and then back to their comfort zones.

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    It will come to a stage where people will be too scared to visit. This stuff is becoming major news in places where a lot of holiday makers travel from. Barbados needs the tourist industry. It really does. The charm of the island over other places is people feel able to go out and explore this beautiful place when they visit. If that stops. It would be an economical disaster for Barbados.

    @, Mr,Crowley hail, hail, very , very good piece ,,,,to add our politicians , has maneuvered themselves into a position where they are not accountable , to the mass of the population who is black and have adopted the way of the white man how to control black people religiously, this by allowing them to believe in the every minute consultation of God and is expecting nothing more than surviving until they die and go to heaven to rewarded…….
    What our politicians strive on , the fact that bajans are party supporters and thats inbedded in they minds come what may,,this make you think if you are not in denial , this government was put in place to destroy our nation……. How could a country which was punching above its weight , is not as like a tin pot government ,, in the 50th year of (Independence Dependency)….
    Our issue of guns , how easy it seems to import guns and drugs into Barbados.. and thats no concern to the politicians , or to any one who is enforcers of our security laws…………
    To me the big criminals in barbados is above the law and they are all protected..
    In (Jamaica) there is always seizing guns large quantity of drugs and sometimes people to go with the guns, in Jamaica anyone seems to be prosecuted so long laws are broken ,,, (this will never happen in barbados ) the big ups in barbados is way above the law, we are an educated non democratic nation ,people frighten to challenge our crooked , corrupt politicians …………………….
    We need to stop them , using the same vote which put them in office to remove them , if they are not working in the interest of the people, we have had enough, this is a world cry which is echoing from many countries………..politicians, politicians…….

      @Jrsmith – Hahahahaha, Good shooting yourself. Listen hun, you have a bit of stuff twisted. We got a double whammy situation going on here in this society. The shooters are the non-brainwashed ones (oh yes). However, their ignorance of self is at systemic level. They don’t give a toss about any god anything. Now the god lot is the REAL problem, that condescending lot who is serving that blue eyed man and who is also suffering from Stockholm syndrome. The lot that runs into the churches to launch their campaigns and the ones who celebrate how long the corporations they work for were open. The zombie lot with out stretch arms and rotating eyes, well programmed as they repeatedly regurgitating the same garbage. Believe it or not this lot is more dangerous than the shooters. These are the ones keeping the chains on this people just like them on Bussa. Problem is there is not only the missing education links to bring about black unity but also the retention of what little history they received. Getting involved in political rubbish which will not serve any purpose for this people – never have and it never will. That lot playing to the piper. You see forces are at work, keeping this people on self destruct mode. To have black unity/brotherhood would mean change. Those politicians, churches, historians, judiciary are all in the same hole.

    Such a beautiful island. Shame. Get the guns off the streets or people’s will stop visiting your lovely island

  16. seagul May 29, 2017 at 1:34 pm

    Look at the demographics. The brainwashed are shooting each other. The tourist product is protected to the max. The tourist are shooting us with their tainted dollars and obscene privileges. The zombie devil of church of England keeps us asleep while our children are abused at every stage. A pimps paradise society is fully in and out of the clergy. What we must realize is the reality that a lack of love is the world’s greatest disease.

      You seagul should be the last one to talk such. You is the same one who i read on a previous comment about the hebrews.

    The comparison of japan to Barbados is a good one. Unlike Barbados, Japan is a sovereign nation run by JAPANESE, controlled by JAPANESE, and owned by JAPANESE looking out for JAPANESE. They are encourage to invent, manufacture, supported, and trade among each other first. They are not being strangulated and will actually strangulate if given the chance. Barbados is the total opposite with a bunch of brainwashed zebra politicians who care for themselves etc giving out votes for a ham and rubbish while serving……………..
    The Japanese have self love and self identity etc. We got people in Barbados at work blocking this people from the privilege of such. We will see a lot more of this come next year and this activity will move from the lower level to the higher level as more people swallow that placid spirit. We need to get to the grass root of this situation. KEEP WATCHING.

    In the quest for “Law and Order” Barbados must first take a serious look at and or remove the “PM” , the “AG” and the “COMMISSIONER of POLICE”. These are the persons that should look out for the safety of the REOPLE in the Country. Then and only then will the public see these gun happy fools off the streets.

  19. Milli Watt May 29, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    this ain’t as bad as it looks a chopping up and a shooting and nobody dead. not a bad day at the office.

  20. fedup May 29, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Barbados is headed in the wrong direction in all aspects – economically, politically, socially, morally, …
