      I always give a speech first before anyone leaves for Bim on staying close to family/friends and not wandering off alone or becoming friends with strangers. Sad I feel the need to say this.

      Tourists not only have homicide to factor in, cost of living, cost of getting there, theft is high, harassment is high/ include sexual. There are many other places which have the same and more beauty to offer. Other factors as well if I wanted to go on.

    Toronto has had only 23 homicides to date, with a Population of over 6 million. Barbados has a population of a little over 284 thousand, with how many homicides to date? We do know it’s high, Barbados is in serious trouble. If they do not get crime under control real soon…. Let’s just say it’s a very disturbing thought.

      While there is serious trouble amongst the youth. I will not live no where else in this world. All that has been happening in the past weeks is but those who have grievances with each other. A very small % of the country so I will not say that any one should be afraid to go about their business.
      I will keep praying for our young people who seem to have no hope. God is still on the throne and He is in control. Hope still for many. For those who believe. Shalom!

    The country is small, you comparing a Mercedes Benz to a Mini. If these murders increase to a much higher level what industry will be hit the most? Think about it, what will the island do then, look at the bigger picture no tourist no income for Barbados, they will go elsewhere, do you really want that to happen.

      Bajans would prefer to be rude and tell tourists to stay where they are or go somewhere else. That’s the mentality you dealing with unfortunately. They don’t think of the tourists who read there ignorant comments. Should the day come where they need tourists so they can survive, they will be begging for help to save them from the hell hole they created themselves.

    I am concerned, worried about the escalating murders in bim,I am not comparing Barbados with no other country or island,,some comments speak about people not having jobs,I don’t see that as an excuse to killed, cause guess what ,no one then is safe,some one say Barbados don’t need tourism, guess what ,I need tourism, if the tourist don’t spend a dollar when they arrived,at least they spend it on air fare,possible hotel accommodation, which provide a pay to someone. Let us used this media,to come up with constructive idea,if it means marching for days to the attorney general office,letting voices be heard,hoping the justice system will be stiffer with the crimes committed..shalom to all.

    We are talking about crime in Barbados and the first thing people are saying is how would it affect tourists. What about how it’s affecting Bajans? We are coming to the painful realisation that you cannot build a country’s economy on tourism. As has been said, Barbados is not the only beautiful place in the world where people can get sun and sea. We need to understand that we have to abandon this broken economic model. We have to focus on production, both agricultural and industrial, and make sure that the cake is sliced fair so every Bajan can get a piece. Until we do this, the problem of crime will continue to rise and sooner or later the tourists will turn their pack on Bim.
