    What is happening in Beautiful Barbados? It is not the Island that I know. Are we still parenting or the children running the show? Get your act together, otherwise you will lose tourists and those of us who live overseas.

    Question where are the parents of these young men. Remove their pants and apply the rod of correction to the seat of knowledge. Time for parents to do what the scriptures say beat the foolishness out of them spare the rod you spoil the child. For the parents who have good kids keep praying for them for God’s hand of protection on their lives.

    Internal Gun War going on in BIM get the Defence Force on the streets to deal with the Gun Slingers. Who the hell is in charge of Barbados? Wunna went up Broad Street, popped into Cave Shepherd and elected mannequins to govern the island? DEMs dummies! The BDF might as well take over until a New Government is Elected.

    Let the AG know that “THE ONLY CURE FOR GRIEF IS ACTION”.
    Wake up AG, time to do something, anything…….NOW, right NOW.
    To the PM, “even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there”.
    You too must do something.

  36. Donild Trimp August 11, 2017 at 8:57 pm

    This is not Bajan culture. Indiscriminate shooting of people in Broad daylight? Never was, never will be.

    This is imported culture.

    Time for mass deportation of all illegal Guyanese and Jamaicans from Barbados.

    The time is also here for the deportation of illegal St. Lucians and Vincentians and all the illegal foreign squatters.

    Get them out, get them out.

    • Belfast August 12, 2017 at 12:02 am

      Hitler in the 1930’s blamed the Jews for all the ailments in his adopted country Germany. Why do we not build concentration camps and lock up all the Caribbean people living here while giving a free pass, by way of Work Permits, unable to be filled by Bajans to other preferred real foreign nationals?

  37. Alex Alleyne August 11, 2017 at 9:06 pm

    @DTrimp, many bajans who were living overseas got sent back to BIM cos they were “bent on crime” while in other people Country. What you gine do , send back them too ???.
    Never the less I know you are as upset as I am.
    “KEEP THE FAITH”…….stay safe.

  38. Donild Trimp August 11, 2017 at 9:07 pm

    Time to rid Barbados of all the wannabe copy cat gangsters.

    Come on ACP Griffith, do something and do it fast.

    In your recent comments you stated there were 18 gangs in Black Rock.

    With so many gangs concentrated in such a small area of Barbados, how difficult is it for the Police to get a hold on this nonsense?

  39. Lisa August 11, 2017 at 9:07 pm

    I take it Barbadians now have License to Carry because people walking about armed.

  40. Adrian Allison
    Adrian Allison August 11, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    This is unusual criminal activity for Barbados and while it is cause for concern I think it’s being blown out of proportion to suggest that this island is unsafe.
    The level of violent crime that happens in the US doesn’t stop anyone from visiting there so this must be put in rational perspective.
    I’ll hasten to add that this criminal activity must be dealt with quickly and decisively otherwise it can spiral into what some are suggesting.

  41. Donild Trimp August 11, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    @ Alex Alleyne –

    I know what you are talking about but I am so upset with what is happening to Barbados.

    I know times change but this is frightening.

    It is like the wild wild west. Shooting in crowds and at people in broad day light with hundreds of witnesses around.

    This is madness and the RBPF and Defense Force must have the co-operation of all law abiding Barbadians and the Politicians in their efforts to bring a stop to this lawlessness and return Barbados to some sense of normalcy.

    Hands off the Police and the Defense Force and let them do what they have to do.

    All cowards, just the same as those who sit back in their offices and hope that it will all go away. Do not work like that in the real world.
    All of a sudden, many of the usually nuff mout ministers, and their loyal yardfowls are all suffering from Freundalitis.

  44. Belfast August 12, 2017 at 12:08 am

    Money talks. Over the years many Barbadians been making some money, recovering pep bottles and african snails. The plantations, when we had canes used to pay a bounty for rats caught.
    In 2017 the authorities should consider offering rewards for information leading to the recovery of illegal weapons, and the prosecution of those who handle them.

  45. debera brown August 13, 2017 at 2:22 pm

    YES, Mr. Trip blame the dirty attitudesign on the Barbadian (by brith) after teaching them to beat him teachers,To be bully at school, to smoke at the back of the school yard,& the of you know what,go right ahead blame everyone else except yourselvessels, I am living here long enough to & see,my daughter went to school with them (princess margreat school)what his she going today, (nurse)so take your blame somewhere else (in the mirror).
