      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.

A very small % of the country so I will not say that any one should be afraid to go about their business.

    Mr. Haynes I’m not sure if you have look at some statistics and recognise when an economy is in a recession where unemployment is on the rise young adults will turn to crime because they still need to be feed, clothed etc.. No one wants to see they family suffer so being hopeless they do what is consider to be rational to them. Yes every country has crime but looking at the record one should ask how has the level of crime increase within a period it speaks to the country similarly to poverty, mental cases it is all connected.

    Barbados has crime like everywhere else, it does not take a brain surgeon to know that. The point you are leaving out is, the crime in Barbados is incredibly high/ out of control. Why is it you chose to ignore the most important fact? Crime is measured by population due to the fact the more people, the more Crime. Why is it so difficult for some Bajans to understand this simply straight forward concept? Put your thinking caps on!

We are becoming like the US interested in our own where is the selflessness guiding a brother. In the older days everyone ate from a pot if one was needy a society grew together not in isolation.

      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.

    Shana Vanderwolf how can you even consider that? did you ever heard of a” trade off” in economic terms? well apply it to social terms it refers to the forgoing of one act to pursue another. If our youth, given the opportunity to choose between a life of crime or and education to learn while being able to survive how would they choose? most of them are scared children guided my those who seek to exploit them. They don’t understand your attitude determines your character your character determines your destiny. So if your thinking that crime is crime and is develop base on crime my dear friend you are incorrect. The economy can make or break a society make up of our children.

    Crime is determined by population
    It is not uncommon to live in a high populated area with low crime. The calculation of Crime is not understood, it is clearly seen in the comments. To understand whether or not Crime is high, low etc. one needs to know how it is determined. Calculation by population ( every 100.000) is an accurate way of calculation. Can’t go wrong with this method. You can expand to population by area if you want to

These are not the only factors. It’s the young ignorant men most of the time fighting over drugs money, drugs and gang related foolishness.
    Barbados is still s safe country to walk at night and sit in the verandah. Many countries would be glad to boast about this. Although you must be mindful that things can escalate if something tangible is not done expeditiously.

    Yes there is crime elsewhere but i don’t agree with that argument. It comes over as if “it’s no big deal”. We want to get a hold of this crime situation before we get to a state where we have to arm ourselves to walk to the shop for a pack of bread. Or walk around entire districts known to be high-crime. We need to nip it in the developing stage than to try to fix it when the proverbial horse is out the stable. Right now his head peeping out and he’s quite anxious.

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.
