    It’s the ppl that are dreadful, not the island…. Take stock…. We go to church and still do ppl the most dreadful things! So then, how easy is it for non church goers to kill each other? If we really want to curb this craziness that seem to be taking over, we have to check ourselves first, learn to tell our friends when they are wrong and make sure our young men, (your sons), start becoming productive members of society! But do we really want it to stop? Or do we find too much pleasure in making others lives miserable?

    Guns do not shoot themselves, people acquire them, aim them shoot them. We have one of the best Police forces in the Caribbean with a very high rate of solving crime and they are well respected. We have had I believe 13 murders for the year, one of our neighbours had 10 yesterday, 520 for the year. Another island 280 and an island with half of our population has had 26. When I was growing up we were taught Scripture in all of our Schools, we went to Church, we belonged to organisations like the Interschool Christian Fellowship and Barbados Youth for Christ, we went to Christian camps and genuinely loved each other…..Crime was at a much lower rate. Instead of talking foolishness we need to go back to being a Christian society and not adopt the practices of other Countries………like legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage. We used to be flogged in School for major offenses and yes, people who did commit murder were hung.

    Every body blames the government. Nobody wants to take responsibility for their own actions. It has nothing to do with being a BLP or DLP. it has to do with the upbringing in the home, teachings, respect for life, morals. Whether or not things are hard in a country, the gangs will continue to war against their rivals. If A don’t like B he will do what he has to and wants to. Stupse. Stop looking for excuses and blaming the government for every thing. If MIA and her crew was in and the same thing happen then what. Stupse. Like what I say or don’t.

What happens if government puts everything in place that people say they should and takes the responsibility and these lawless youth still don’t change. Then what. They kill, spend a few years and back on the street. Then revenge killing happens. I say hang them

    Kool Rasta says that :

    { “Barbados is different to any other place we might get killings and stuff so do other countries all who talking foolishness go live some where else and see if you won’t want to come back fast Barbados still the best place to live ” }

    Well Kool Rasta you need to do 2 things

    (1) take your head out of your rear end.

    (2) Get out from under the rock that you are living under.

    You are using the old bajan cliche “talking foolishness ” . . . you can tell a bajan anywhere , anytime because if you listen to them in conversation and don’t agree with them the first thing out of their mouths is that you are ” talking foolishness .

    And the second thing that they’ll do is put their tongue between their teeth and and suck in air in a disgusting manner in what they call a ” stupse “.

    Back on topic , bajans like you Kool Rasta are always in denial and always using the comparison factor mainly that:

    ” Crime is bubaydus is not as bad as in COMPARISON to Jamaica , Trinidad , Guyana , the USA ,etc etc. yet still the black cattle are killing off the black cattle every day.

    How come the whites , Asians , Indians and other races are not killing each other every day like the ” cattle ” are doing ? and you
    say that buhbaydus , better known as little england , better known as the rock , better known as bim and is on it’s way to becoming better known as the ” crime capital of the Islands ” is the best place to live ? man tek de marbles outta ya head do.

    Using resources like the Police. The over worked and under paid. The person’s who cant get decent salaries or working conditions or equipment. Every day they work hard, citizens curse them daily and for what. Putting their lives on the line. Citizens sometime have information that can assist in getting these guns off the street but Mr. Stewart they either simply dont care because it hasn’t hit home at them or they encourage it. I hear talk of a Gun Amnesty…..now study it. A mark is on your back, will you surrender your gun leaving yourself naked. So in my opinion that isnt the answer either. Maybe you and all the other concerned citizens can sit with the necessary and important persons in positions to find a WORKING solution. When that happens I will be glad to do my part to continue to assist.

    When cost of living rise, unemployment rise obviously the crime rate will rise. Im not finding excuses for wats going on, but if the tables were to turn on ssome of you “better off” people who have ur nice jobs, nice house, you wud see things differently. Imagine working to support ur entire family and one day u are unemployed because of job cuts, ur not going to let ur wife, children, mother suffer, the only other thing is finding a way to get dat money. Weather iit’s a small or big crime, every crime has consequences, some end in prison, some in death. Imagine urself being dead broke, then try to make an honest dollar by selling fruits etc, and get arrested for not having license to sell, or selling to the wrong ppl , wat wud you expect to happen next. Ppl commenting saying Barbados was never this way because all you seeing is the crime. We at a stage now where when we go shopping, ya either have to have a car to throw ya things in, or buy bags, while some ppl barely scrapping sardines, cornbeef and biscuits for de children to eat , now have to put in for the bag.

    The problem is that there is no punishment for murder and those doing the killing know that. Once they don’t kill any one important nothing will be done about the court system. The Police are doing their best, The prosecutors are out playing galf.

    Another black Bajan man gunned down in the street. This is becoming the norm because the authorities are putting the murderers in Dodds and feeding them. I didnot believe in the death penalty, but I say that if a young man takes a gun and deliberately shoots another man six or seven times, then the murderer should give his life in return. We sign on to agencies that have caused hovoc around the world with their ungodly rulings – do not lash children, do not hang etc., which are against biblical principles. Countries that are signatories to these agreements execute their murderers
    We need to do something before we lose our reputation as a quiet, stable island.

    Barbados is a very beautiful island and I think the people in high office needs to address this emediately .that’s how crime begin and when the criminal are not dealt with others follow. It needs to be stop. Don’t make the mistake and say other countries have crime also. Because this same countries if they had put a stop to it today they would have much more of a great country. Don’t wait for you to be a victim to speak out. Pressure those in position to do there work. That’s what they were put there for and being paid for. In my country we have given one man to much rope and today it is a long rope to cut. Do it now before it is to late.
