    There has to be an underground existing on the island with political or drug cartel operations. Commissioner Griffith you are now tasked to have volunteer undercover units for the safety of the environment.

    Ossie Moore, doesn’t matter the color of skin. Help to provide a solution to this growing problem. Its mostly the youth that is doing the crime. Education, jobs, recreation and family unity is a way to combat the crime situation. Stiffer prison sentence.

    From information received this incident occurred during the power outage. On my way to my home last evening when i saw that the power outage was basically engulfing large areas and the thought came to my mind that this situation if not speedily rectified could create cover for the criminal element who may have nefarious intentions. This has always been my concerns concerning these frequent power outages. They have been occurring too regularly and the Barbados light and power need to get on top of this situation, i know for a fact that within the year 2017 there have been a frequent number of power outages in the parish of St Philip and i some cases these outages have been for considerable lengths of time, on one occasion a neighbor on my arrival home told me how happy she was that i had arrived home,i guess because of the fact she knew of my background in law enforcement, but she was literally scared, especially since during that time home invasions and robberies were being reported in various forums of the media. The Barbados light and power needs to check their plant infrastructure and get their act together, i have always viewed their services as efficient but within recent these outages have been too frequent and these long periods of darkness during outages can compromise safety and security it has always been something that weighed on my mind, criminals and the criminal minded operate on opportunity i shudder to think of the chaos that would ensue if we were hit by a major hurricane God forbid. If the down time in these so called minor outages are so long before restoration God help us in a crisis.

    Ossie : Dear Bram AZA ,
    (1) What color of skin are the youths who are committing 100 % of the crimes in Barbados ?

    Bram AZA says : ” Education, jobs, recreation and family unity is a way to combat the crime situation. Stiffer prison sentence ”

    Ossie : Bram AZA , you just answered your own question . . . . . by saying ” Education, jobs, recreation and family unity is a way to combat the crime situation. Stiffer prison sentence ” which translates into :

    Personally at this point the JFK quote needs changing around so that it says :

    ” Ask not what you can do for Barbados ,ask what can Barbados do for you “

    Ossie Moore : I was in Brooklyn New York in 1977 ( sitting outside on the stoop ) on the night of the very infamous blackout in New York City. And I do remember and official from Con ED calling the blackout ” AN ACT OF GOD ”

    Could the power failures and sewage problems in Barbados be acts of God also ? . . . .. . just asking man ! ! ! !
