    Gazer…many people are not aware but after the abolition of slavery…Angola State Prisonm, formerly Angola Slave Plantation in the South quickly became a replacement for slavery, catching runaway slaves and dropping them in a chaingang, as ya can see, imprisoning people in the US is a very lucrative replacement for slavery, whether they are guilty of a crime or not.

    Dont be surprised that the little copycat shithounds on the island are not trying their hand at selling people into prison.

    The judge in PA is getting an upclose and personal relationship with his handy work.

    @ WW&C
    Take note that debt, credit card, etc, etc, is a very successful form of social control, as noted in the essay.
    Take note also that the same “debt, credit etc” that fuelled their materialistic machinations for the past 60 years is now about to become their worse possible nightmare….
    Greece is only the very tip of a global iceberg that is about to create a chill of biblical proportions.
    Money Brain has been very quiet on this, but Bushie is sure that he must be wetting himself regularly at the prospects of the coming global monetary collapse….
    It will make 2008 look like a girl guides picnic……and all the signs point to an election year date with this inevitable crash….

    “Keep telling yourself that and dont investigate the backgrounds of those current companies and the individuals behind them, you dont know who is who because of the secret acts created to protect them, find out who is who first before you get defensive.”

    This is a comment made to Inniss'”Barbados is no Tax Haven”….what is wrong with Dumbville’s brain that he cannot understand that the environment was created to reduce Barbados to the status of a taxhaven, the secret acts government in the Caribbean created specifically, which PROTECTS and ENCOURAGES offshore companies to use the islands as tax havens…Donville does not even know who all these people are, did any of the 2 governments do any background checks over the years…no…did they run their names through Interpol….no…but they creared secret acts to protect them though…so now Dumbville ya have to be more transparent cause the big countries are losing too many billions, ya seem to be ready to fight…have fun.

    It appears that everyone knows. ..except Donville Inniss, minster of international business, that once those journalists got those 11 million Panama Leaks documents in their hands, attached were copies of ID cards, passports and other IDs of those smart asses evading taxes, they can separate the offshore companies no longer active from the criminals and noncriminals, etc and etc.

    Now if Donville was smart, he would play nice with investigators to find out what the companies in Panama papers, linked to Barbados addresses, hint, hint…CGI Insurance etc, been doing down there, why is the name being used, the identities of those involved, how much money is being hidden, is it money leaving the Barbados economy etc, etc is policyholders money involved and does the link Panama, Barbados, China, Hong Kong lead to India and will policyholders lose their money again, like with Clico…

    … soon as Donville thinks he can play hard ball, remember, the investigators already have the identities of tax evaders….and no one can stop corresponding banks from pulling out….but that is me being real, what do I know.

    Might leave myself vulnerable to others, but I am still going to walk the plank.

    The penal reform act of 2014 could have been written by an A’level student.
    I am not a legal eagle, but the sentence below should have the reform act nullified canceled / illegitimate / stuck down / tossed out….

    “the need to deter the offender and others from committing similar offences;”

    That is not making the punishment fit the crime, that is punishing the poor guy for possible future crimes and future criminals

    At least it explains why stealing $7.70 worth of food is worth a six month sentence.

    (Bear in mind that I am no lawyer or do not claim to be one)

    Forgive me if I have become an instrument with just one note. I fear that exposure to the writings of John, Zoe and the capital “AC” must have damaged me in some way.

    If a citizen of Barbados was caught in the US or Canada with 29 lbs. of marijuana, I doubt if he/she would be fined and sent back to Barbados. I believe that detention and then immediate deportation would be the action taken.

    I doubt that I with an American passport would be fined and then sent back to the USA. In fact, having an American passport might be seen as an act of treason and I can hear the average Barbadian arguing that any length of jail time would be just too short.

    If the average Barbadian was found with a similar amount of marijuana, I doubt if he/she would be fined and then sent to his house.

    This is why it is important to have clear and well defined sentencing guidelines. Arbitrary prison sentences help reinforce the classism/shadism/who ya know that is part of Barbados. If justice in meted out in an inequitable manner, then we are saying that not all are equal in the eyes of the law.

    The poor, hungry Bajan who seeks to assuage his hunger is meted a punishment that is reminiscent of that imposed in earlier and darker times, whilst other are handed a sentence that makes a mockery of the word punishment.

    As an exercise, the law students of Cave Hill should be given the task of trying to create sentencing guidelines; a task of making the punishment fit the crime; guidelines that mean two individuals committing the same crime will receive a similar punishment. These guidelines may never be used, but the exercise would open these students’ eyes to injustice being served as justice.

    Are there no hungry lawyers in Barbados???

    @ The Gazer,

    You have raised some valid points. Take the example of our media. They tend to show the photos of a black suspect either in chains or being frog-marched to court surrounded by burly policemen. I have yet to see our media publishing similar photos of other groups. Perhaps it is only Negros who commit crimes on the island?

    It is a Sunday, I would not waste your time carrying out any further investigation. All you need to know is that Barbados remains a truly sick society.


  11. Well Well & Consequences May 15, 2016 at 11:54 AM #

    Yes, it is indeed a sick society that wastes no opportunity to denigrate members of their own race with absolute glee, but can bend over backwards to enact secret legislation to protect all others….they are the biggest, dumbest asses ever spawned and the disease seem to afflict Caribbean leaders the most, the ones in Barbados are the worse, they show no mercy..

    I am still trying to figure out the reasoning behind creating Secret Acts to protect offshore companies, without knowing the identities of those behind the companies and then have the goddamn nerve to create laws to arrest anyone talking about criminality associated with or commited by such companies…are these black leaders for real, are they cursed.

    Well…party is over.

    Due…do you now see why newbie companies can never compete with established companies like Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway…the dude is seasoned, not just any company can buy 9 million shares in Apple.
