    Not only shootings but botching an incident seen! Come on Barbados we were a more literate or should I say educated society in the twentieth century. You may have done the victim more harm than good by transporting them in a privately owned vehicle.

      @Hellicopter(8P); A person gets shot and you are saying that getting the person to the only medical facility (QEH) would be doing more harm that good in a private vehicle. I agree that the private vehicle do not have the equipment but time is important in emergencies in many cases. First Barbados don`t have a response time so that`s the problem. I know of some one who died a few years ago because the family could not get an ambulance and I heard a host asking if the family could not get a friend or the neighbor with a vehicle, the person went into a diabetic coma and no one was held responsible.

    Apparently Prison is a resort so no fear going there.

    No Veronica! They want a Massa to tell them when to go to get a plate O food, when to wake up and when to go to the cell. As regard to every day work they like taking care of slop buckets!

      Ossie – you sweet. The beginning of your last sentence and the rest of the comment is all in all. Look good at it. You either getting tell outside or inside.

    now if I could get at least another fifty of these shootings between this bad man crowd by year end it would not be a bad thing. I would encourage all war parties to continue to do the good job they are doing. Would want to encourage them to be more accurate but keep on keeping on.

    I have no problem with one idiot wannabe “gangsta” eliminating another idiot wannabe “gangsta”.

    Eventually they will wipe each other out.

    What I have a problem with is the indiscriminate shooting in public with no regard for the lives of innocent people.

      Over One million visitors last year so tourist still coming here ,people still visit London although terrorist people randomly throwing acid in people’s faces. In the USA guns violence is a daily occurrence as well as European countries and the Caribbean.It is a world wide problem . I don’t like it but it’s not Heaven no place can boast.

      • hcalndre August 23, 2017 at 12:13 am

        @Mazzie Taylor; no one wants to leave their country for a vacation and get shot in another.

    • Milli Watt August 22, 2017 at 12:37 pm

      @ buddy love I suggest you redirect them to North Korea

      • Jennifer August 22, 2017 at 2:52 pm

        Or Syria or Charlottesville USA. These guys are not bred to kill tourist. They are bred to kill their own people. Was there a shooting in any tourist area?? Was any tourist shot???? Some of these same tourist pick up these fellas to tidy them up. Should we even start to talk about killers??????

      And you trust the Government statistics. The same Government that is deceiving you. More Britians stay at home now and I know for sure as I own a rental property and the demand has grown as our friends have discovered. With regards London there is more to see and do here than the once Beautiful Island I grew up on for 30 years. Please open your eyes to your reality

      • Jennifer August 22, 2017 at 3:04 pm

        Blame all past governments, if they had trained and developed this people on self knowledge and to build and manufacture instead of looking for books = crumbs, they would not be killing each other and still depending on the almighty tourist dollar.

      Buddy seems happy living in a racist society where black people are second class citizens we don’t have that here in Barbados he is sad because inspite of the recent crime we are still happier than him.

      • Jennifer August 22, 2017 at 7:08 pm

        @Mazie – I can see with some of what you are saying (one just have to look). But I must add that racism has 3 tiers. And Blacks in Barbados falls under one of them. And blacks will usually respond in of two ways retreat or join, very few will disengage.

      • hcalndre August 23, 2017 at 7:10 am

        @Mazie; Barbados have the Class problem in a big way and had the race problem at one time, I don`t know of today because bajans were taught to stay in their place and you would never hear them complaining.

  18. Milli Watt August 22, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    you want it to stop and btw I don’t have a problem with it…..the lousy political class got to stop pandering to this subversive underclass for VOTES, withdraw the island from the treaties it signed a la TRUMP (it can be done) and start licking off some heads a la TOM ADAMS rest his lousy soul……DEATH ROW CLEAR AND OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

    • Jennifer August 22, 2017 at 6:59 pm

      @Milli – what are you talking about – treaties with trump. Are u serious????????? Not when the death penalty, public killings and lynchings all exist in that place. This government can’t be that stupid. Then they should make it legal to carry guns for self defense too. Look at them supremacist lot in Charlottesville and skin heads with them AK’s last week. At least them got a purpose and target.

    It is about time to band all guns in Barbados only countries that allows licensed firearms has this level of gun violence.
    Barbadians need to wake up…
    Stop following the United States of America.
    Band all guns then there will be no reason for anyone to have guns.
    Anyone caught with a gun would be dealt with severely……………
    If you own a gun you are 20 times more likely to be killed by gun licensed or not a simple fact.
    Just band them, look at the statistics of the countries that has banned guns and the answer would be clear as day.
    Before I forget the idiots that is going to start saying people kill people not guns.
    They would kill a lot less with out guns.

  20. DE August 22, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    All these gun, all the talk about customs, seaport and airport but I have not heard any one talk about investigating the Legal Gun Importer that we have in Barbados.
    Does any one remember the incident with the Gun Importer that was caught with all those high powered guns in his possession that was not registered.
    I wonder was had become of that case.

    Barbados is seen more as “Class structured” and not so high on “race”. If you got big dollars you can buy and live where you like without any problem. In other parts of the world , no matter how much money you have you can face problems by neighbours moving or writing on your door or you might even get a cross burn on your lawn. Property value drop, Just to name a few.
