    No bail, 25 yr minimum sentences plus an extra 10 yrs for the men contributing to the DELINQUENCY OF A MINOR 35 yr mandatory sentence for those two.
    Hey Mr ATTORNEY GENERAL you have the opportunity to grow SOME BALLS and send a message to these TROGLODYTE GUNMAN that they and any others who come before the court system will feel the full wrath of said system.
    Let them know law an order will prevail, do not capitulate to them, hammer them! mercilessly! Just like they did when the opened fire on innocents.
    Me personally I would give them a life hard labor sentence.
    I know you are a fecklees do nothing Attorney General but you can regain a little semblance of respect good will with the citizenry of BIM. DO YOUR JOB BARBADOS DEMANDS IT!
    To the RBPF great job now go get the rest of these skulldugerous’ cretins who are causing mayhem.

    A teenager, mind not fully developed, easily manipulated and led astray…. We are too proud as parents! Or he would be packing somebody supermarket shelves or mixing concrete! Once we start to work for our own money, most of us continue to work…. But we as parents sit down and make excuses that no jobs are out there but d guyanese youths coming and finding d non existent jobs…. Parents, continue to let your sons finish school and sit on blocks idle every day and you will either lose them to prison or the ground!

    The young men don’t want to work hard for their money. They want it the easy way. As Bob said. Many more will suffer many more will die.

    What happening in my family unit? That is the question everyone should be asking themselves as these persons who commit criminal activities come from a family.

  28. Bajan August 30, 2017 at 10:12 am

    At the time of the alleged offences were any of these men on:

    Police bail?
    Court Bail?
    Probation or on a bond to keep the peace?
    Community Service ordered by the courts?

    In the US, they build jails based on the number of trouble kids beginning in kindergarten.

    These 3 young men unfortunately will get the most negative comments and backlash because of all the violence that has been taking place, also due to the fact that so many people were injured including a child and someone died.
    I don’t know much about 2 of them but Raheem is not a bad person and he didn’t shoot anyone. I am sorry he was with the crowd!
    Instead of always assuming the worse the guy that died had a gun on him shoes he wasn’t as innocent as we want to believe, who is to say he didn’t shoot 1st and one of those guys retaliated, who is to say he didn’t hit half the people injured and not the 3 being blamed, we dont know but these 3 are being pinned for all!
    Who is to say that it is not someone else who is still free that they know or was in the same proximity that did shoot and someone saw them running (I would run to) but they just aren’t talking, if you realize they aren’t charged with murder!
    And I am so sick of the stupid comments about, ” oh he was smiling that means nothing where you at the court?, look at the video and not the pictures the officer was speaking to them for all we know he could have been saying ” Boy you make a whole Rasta man cry meaning Raheem’s father”
    He could have been saying one a ya all gonna be Virgil girlfriend tonight, and he responded by saying not me, who knows what law or rule is there that an officer can’t have interaction with you, I mean seriously try to think about other circumstances or instances before we crucify.
    This is an unfortunate situation all around and I hurt as a mother to see the paths our youths are taking. And the last thing we should do unless you were there and saw any of them is judge or give them a sentence before being tried and guilt proven, i highly doubt they had 3 gunmen maybe 1 so all 3 couldn’t possibly have shot 1 person, rhe police have a serious job on their hands but find the right one!
