    Give his ass 35years flat hard labor stop dilly dallying with these gunman bandits. Attorney General you better start doing your job.
    These magistrates should be elected every 4 years so you can get rid of them for not doing their jobs and throwing away the key !lock these troglodytes up for good..

      @Kaiser. I agree with you. We have to try something to deter these gunmen.

    @Saga Boy –
    Simple – first stop the inflow of guns into Barbados.

    Every Barbadian worth his or her salt knows how the guns and ammunitions are entering Barbados.

    Oh how I wish for the days of Dirty Harry.

    A retired detective told me a story where Dirty Harry arrested some Bajan white boys for possession of drugs and took them to Hastings Police Station and the Sgt panicked and started calling lawyers, the Commissioner of Police and the ACP in charge of crime.

    I am wondering if that mentality still exist among the authorities?

    Case never reached the courts.

    @Donald. How do you stop the inflow of gun if people get paid to see and don’t tell?

    When gov tried to install cameras in some locations at the port the unions said it was an invasion of privacy. Same response when police start searching cars on the road.
