    They need to catch this person quick. When this hits the social media in Canada and elsewhere it paints a grim picture of Barbados. So pull out all the stops and catch him for the sake of us all.

    Really? I never saw that response with regards to the lady who got shot recently at the ATM. Is this a case of black and white. You tell me..

    “Probing”? Is this a deliberate choice of words? If so it is rather an insensitive choice, lacking empathy for the victim.
    @Leroy Paris, I saw nothing in the report to indicate the race of the alleged victim. Unless all Canadians are white, I think your comparison of these two unfortunate cases is morally inappropriate.
    @ jrsmith, you are spot on. All external ATMs should be covered by surveillance cameras. Fundamental I would have thought.
