Increase in the Murder Rate

Blogger at Caribbeansignal.com doesn’t only track the movement in the petrol price. Although it is early days to push the panic button the early trending is a worrying sign.
– David, Barbados Underground

There has been a 60% increase in the number of murders between January and March 2018 compared with the same time frame last year. Jan to March 2017 saw at least 5 murders versus 8 for 2018. The number of murders recorded during March 2018 was four. The victims are:

56-year-old Laura Springer (Female)
25-year-old Jakeil Jaden Pierre Small (Male)
31-year-old Shayne Welch (Male)
23-year-old Kemar Gooding (Male)

The number of murders during the same period in 2017 was two. NOTE: I have not included Linda Atwell as media reports have, so far, been treating her death as un-natural and/or suspicious.

    The murder rate in London is currently higher than that of New York.

    Would you believe that?.

    There seems to be an uptick in many countries

    Maybe an indicator of social conditions.

    The average for Barbados shows that we have not had a spike to align with perception on the ground but we need a drill down analysis based on a shifting social landscape to proactively manage a creep that maybe at play. The good analogy is what has occurred in the PSV sector. The subculture associated with public transport that we have been unable to stem.

    We read the ‘mini-bus’ culture as representative of bottled-up energies of Black people in Barbados, the stifling of an innate entrepreneurial instinct – a manifestation of. This is an historical problem.

    Certainly, the old appeals are no longer tenable. And that should be recognized by the elites.

    Maybe we should seek new ways of confronting these challenges. For they are unlikely to get any better.

    Instead of trying to re-impose old remedies, maybe a clean break is now necessary, even if insufficient.

  • Ok, so they armed the police as Gabby suggested, has the violence ceased? Of course he did Jack and the beach when I was a boy too. We’re still protesting against those who would dare to encroach on the last vestige of bajan ownership. so, the increasing murder rate at present, there are many contributing factors, however, the one that we overlooked or seem not to be mindful of…Single mothers. A few decades ago as the veil, stigma was lifted on unwed mothers, the women went ape shit in their breeding and spitting out these retarded bastards. Even up until now I’m seeing so many kids brought into this world where the only thought given is to a baby’s shower and some silly name. What will become of that child/children is left up to a toss of a coin it seems like. No doubt some simple simpleton will disagree, but the reality is there for all to see. When compared to the youngsters hitherto, where at 4th and 5th forms in high school what separated us from our fathers, uncles and older brothers was only that we went to school, they went to work. but we were decent young men in the making. Our mothers with less education didn’t coddle us, they demanded from us in most cases that we do something with our lives. In many instances our mothers went out and found someone, a carpenter, mason, electrician any tradesman to take her sons on if so be the case. We dare not go and learn a trade or continue our education if we were so inclined. I left Barbados when I was 20 years old, did the GED and struggled at a CUNY institution, came back to Barbados, look what I’ve found; mummy fooping the carpenters, masons and electricians to support these 30+ year punk ass sons instead demanding the sons get their ass out do something with it, beside bulling for brand name clothing.

    Your claim is totally at odds with the demographic statistics showing a declining birthrate both in the UK and your mother country Barbados.

    Aren’t both jurisdictions actively promoting, as a policy directive, an increase in the birthrate to stave off not only a pending demographic collapse but also to supply and maintain a pool of ‘active’ employees and consumers needed to contribute to a tax regime on which a growingly large ‘greying’ segment of the population would become long-term dependants?

    Who else do you expect to make the largest share of this requested additional contribution to the making of this national demographic cake?
    Not young ‘idle’ women and men with loads of ‘fooping’ time on their hands?

    Please don’t expect career women to have time to be baby-making machines

    Promiscuity my donkey!

    Black Bajans have always practised that art of outside ‘fooping and breeding’ even in the cane fields with the white men and slave masters of yore.

    Marriage has never been fashionable among black people in Barbados or the wider Caribbean with a history of African chattel slavery.

    Sex outside of marriage has always held the sway; even today among so-called educated blacks where 70% of births occur outside the ‘bonds’ or ‘banns’ of legal marriages.

  • Hal. Do you live in Barbados? If you look at Barbados now, you will see females producing less children. Once upon a time, females will stay home and mind house whilst producing an average around 4 per household. Nowadays, female saying “one child is sufficient” and others going back to the maker with absolutely none. So Hal. If we are seeing less babies and the majority of these mothers are working, how then you can state people depending on the state for support.

  • Today’s society are angry and violent due to the financial strain in most homes. Children are seeing parents in pensive moods wondering where the next meal will come from, how will the utilities be paid and a myriad of woes. All these actions are played out in front the children. They look on knowing that they cannot contribute a dollar and with that become disoriented and hit out at anything including becoming violent, start robbing along with taking a life. This is the real-life Hollywood with real-life actors trying to be part of the real-life world. Check with the statistics and you will see also that the majority of these murders are deliberately carried out to ensure the person pinpointed will never survive.

    I am told there is a principle in advocacy that if you are going to ask a question you should already have the answer. My reply was broader than just Barbados. In fact, the family is in crisis all over the democratic world.
    In the Anglo-Saxon world, between 40-50 per cent of marriages end in divorce; a large number, if not the majority, of young couple are not married in the UK. It is now normal for young men and women to have children with different mothers and fathers.
    Over 100000 children are kept in local authority care in the UK, the vast majority because of parental neglect or physical or emotional abuse. In the last financial year alone, local authorities increased their application to the family courts by over 130 per cent.
    The situation is now so serious, that teachers have taken to feeding and bathing children first thing in the morning; some free food canteen remain open over the weekends so that children from problem families can be fed.
    To qualify for fee food at school, the parent or guardian must be on benefits. Unless in cases of ill health, statistically very few couples, married or unmarried, have children who are in this category. Even if one parent is out of work, it is unlikely both would be at the same time. Any benefits would therefore be top-ups.
    In fact, the risk-prediction model used by most local authorities is vastly under-estimating the number of children that should be taken in to care. It is this crisis that was meant when I said ‘our courts’, I should have made it clear by saying UK family courts and the recently formed drug and alcohol courts. But the phrase ‘Bajan at home’ should have made that clear.
    The guiding principle of our family law, and the family courts, is that in marital disputes decisions must in the first instance favour the mother, this includes custody. I have seen grown men cried because they were not allowed to see their children.
    This was also the principle behind the pensions and divorce legislation, even where there are no children.
    Elsewhere, there has been a reference to the increase in knife and gun crime in London; but like most things, sweeping generalisations ignore the details, what some people erroneously call nit picking.
    The majority of the children who end up involved in gangs are from single parents, local authority care and children brought to Britain from war-torn countries.
    This is not new, the authorities have known about this for years but have chosen to play it down – since it does not serve a political purpose.
    Television programmes have been made about it. What is true, and it is the unarticulated part of the knife and gun crime claim, is that implicit in it is that the young people are of Caribbean heritage – that is a political decision.
    Over the years, we have seen Rap and Hip-hop blamed for the increase in youth crime; You Tube; reggae music; the Notting Hill carnival; medical and psychological problems; lack of education; drug abuse; aggression; the list goes on – anything but racism.
    Even in schools and colleges they now have what is called zero tolerance, which includes hair styles, the wearing of brown shoes, not looking white teachers in the eye, and every other petty excuse to ban school kids from school. This means from the cradle to the jail.
    But this is not new: read Bernard Coard on the way kids were treated in London schools in the 1970s, a period when social workers set out as a profession to ‘teach’ black parents a lesson.
    Talk to any of the retirees back in Barbados and they will tell you about social workers telling parents they are no longer in the Caribbean so cannot discipline badly behaved children or pre-teens who wanted to stay out late at night, and the children playing the game by reporting parents to the teachers, who would call in social services.
    That was when the syntax of social welfare included such phrases as latch-key kids, home alone kids; etc. It was, and is, an issue about race, parenting and crime.
    It is interesting that the solution being offered is a return stop and search (imported from New York), which is the political objective, a return to the 1970s when the 1824 Vagrancy Act was dusted off to deal with young black boys. The 1981 riots and the Scarman Report.
    About Barbados, we had that debate in this blog following the CCJ Selby decision and I am not prepared to go over it again. Apart from the reminder that 70 per cent of children born in Barbados are from single parents.
    Again, why is it to criticise an institution or policy is to criticise Barbados? Of course I criticise the criminal justice system that is intent on criminalising children; I criticise a brutal court that can remand a 15 yr old school girl on $5000 bail because she told a police man to bugger off; I criticise a family court that could try to penalise Rasta parents for wanting to home-school their children; I criticise preachers who get in the pulpit and let go at ordinary working-class boys on the block. I criticise promiscuous married men and women who routinely have affairs and think such behaviour is fine. I criticise leading politicians who get on public platforms and talk about ‘horning’ people. I am not saying we should be angels, but we should certainly strive to lead better lives. I also criticise keyboard warriors, waiting in the ante-chamber before kicking the bucket, and trying to make their last days relevant by being bitter and twisted.
    This is not criticising Barbados and Barbadians, but a call for improvements in our institutions, in the way we are governed, a call for ethics in public life.

    We also know that Jackson was NOT on the balcony when King was shot but he came to the seen afterwards, based on foreknowledge, and draped himself on King’s blood, literally and figuratively.

    That blood was used to nearly elevate Jackson into the highest office in the land, not the first nor last, we suggest.

    King himself knew that Jackson was a Judas. Just look at what happened after his speech the night before he was murdered by the government of the USA. He ignored Jackson, brutally, because he knew the fix was in.

    But there will be no Bethnal Green guidelines to follow in Barbados; just Victorian-type conditions of Dickensian description which, according to your harangue, still exist on the streets of London especially among those of Afro-Caribbean heritage.

    Just return ‘home’ and put into practice what you constantly preach about and we are sure those ‘Anonymous’ BU keyboard warriors would unveil themselves and follow you like Christ to the very heavenly tip of Land’s End.

In the movie Selma which was about a King led march they didn’t use any of his speeches because the movie producers feared lawsuits. This is the same family that authorized the use of King’s voice to sell trucks in the most recent Super Bowl but refused to donate or sell any of King’s memoribilia or artifacts to the new African American museum in DC; the price wasn’t right.

    Oh what an’ illuminatingly’ black interpretation of the Christian story called the ‘Passion Play’!

    Of course MLK was onto the black Judas and like the fictional Christ in the RC Easter play foresaw his pending fate. Like the ‘bought’ Judas, Jackson was subsequently scorned and treated by the white establishment as a genuine house-nigger bastard who would sell his dead mother just for personal fame and material fortune.

    Sometimes we present in shorthand

    Jesse Jackson entered the national political milieu on the cusp of a number of Afrikan-American leaders entering high offices – governors, mayors, senators, HoR, cabinet secretaries.

    Harold Washington was the godfather of that political current.

    It was Washington who put together a winning coalition which was defeating entrenched incumbents in the major cities of the USA.

    Jesse Jackson tried to capitalize on that political current. And in spite of the ‘hymie’ talk, he was seen by many as the one who might have replication the coalition politics of Harold Washington on a national scale.

    In any event, and like all modern politics, the Zionists in America were beaten back by a number of forces including the NOI.

    Jackson certainly made a good run on his first time out at getting the Democratic nomination. As we seem to remember, another 7 or 8 points might have made all the difference.

    Is was race more than any other factor which in toto defeated Jackson. White people voting for the white candidates.

    Certainly, Black ‘folks’ had high hopes and were galvanized in ways we have not seen again until Obama.

    Political scientists seem to generally argue that were it not for Jackson, there would never have been an Obama.

    But US presidents are not unknown for their involvements in illegal activities, or secret services, clandestine agencies. Maybe these were justifications for Jackson the Judas.

    De ole man ent no criminologist nor am I a statistician.

    I am just a simple man who observed things

    I will therefore say that these statistics will be divided into three categories 2 2018 for BIM.

    Murders that are drug related AS IN TERRITORY DEFINING HOMICIDES

    Murders which are acts of passion, which are related to and generated through incidents of domestic violence and altercations where a feller GOTS TO SHOW HE ENT NO ONE’S BITCH

    and (accidental) manslaughter

    So what can impact on the first category or for that matter all three categories?

    The following seem to be the options

    Incarceration,
    State Supported Death Penalty or
    Instruction or what can be called Behavioural Programming.

    The latter of the three is the only one that may have an effect BEFORE THE ACT.

    Education of the “Thou Shalt Not Kill” variety that is so compellingly structured that a feller will pause before killing another one.

    It becomes glaringly evident that the first two have not worked yet where are we on the third?

    Ironically it is interesting to see the time and money invested in promoting and glamorizing death and destruction using Hollywood and augmented by Animation for the population of indolent youth and the fast increasing parasites that have been birthed AND WHO WALK AROUND “LIVING NUMB SHELLS.”

    And as the ole man says, the issue is exacerbated by the fact that we live on a 11 by 16 mile rock
    where the order of the day or the majority of the population is getting all up into peoples business or some other meaningless activity of the day.

    In the absence of the collective’s pursuit of things that are meaningless. what else do we expect?

    Certainly we cannot expect that we “wukking at Fraizers and getting paid at Layers (plantation)” or that we will be producing people like Stephen Hawkings when the collective is feeding our population filth like Days of our Lives and the other litany of filth?

    What are single mothers?

    The term “unwed mother” has NEVER been used in Barbados, since most first time mothers were not yet married [and some never married] not being married at the first birth has long been normalised in Barbados.

    Every child who is conceived is conceived by the actions of TWO people.

    So when was there a “veil, stigma on unwed [Bajan] mothers?”

    Go to the Archives and you will READ for yourself that the majority of Bajan children were always born to women who were not at the time of the child’s conception and or birth in a formal/legal marriage.

    And yet in my father’s time [he was bornat the beginning of the 20th century] years passed without a murder being committed. Why?

    In my time [i was born mid-twentieth century] there were maybe 3 or 4 murders a year. Why?

    What evidence do you have that unmarried women are more likely to have retarded children?

    I put it to you that married couples because they tend to be older are more likely to have retarded children, whereas the young not yet married women tend to have very healthy children as long as they are properly nourished during their pregnancies.

    Both my grandmothers born in 1879 and 1886 had children before marriage, Between them they raised 5 healthy, law abiding, hard working sons and 2 healthy, hard working law abiding daughters.

    If you will take the time to check at the Archives you will discover that both your grandmothers also became pregnant before they were married, as most of our grandmothers did.

    Since Barbados’ birth rate us 1.8 per woman in her lifetime where is the evidence that people are mass producing children? And why would you consider 1.8 mass production, when the optimum production rate is 2.2.

    Where is the evidence that Bajan parents depend on the state to support their children? Do you know the meager payments welfare recipients receive? It is certainly not enough to support a child. If as you contend Bajan parents can support their children on the petty amounts paid in welfare then they are economic geniuses and we should nominate them for next year’s Nobel prize in economics.

    True.

    So why have so many men, here, there and everywhere abdicated from their fatherly responsibilities?

    Please note that while there are many father absent families [I never use the term fatherless, because only rarely are the biological fathers dead] there are rarely motherless families in Barbados. Every household, every family has a mother present, and often grannies and aunties nearby playing supporting roles as well. You know like now the children are on Easter vacation and so that the mothers can go to work the grannies and aunties chip in with significant amounts of time, of child care, meal preparation, laundry, visits to the beach, to the parks, to libraries, to museums, to art galleries, to places of interest etc.

    Since the fathers, grandfathers, uncles etc. in a family are not dead, why are so many of our boys bereft of positive male influences, male time, male money, male love?

    What are our men doing with the time “SAVED?” and the money saved when they neglect their sons, grandsons, nephews etc.

    My friend ended up in jail, I ended up at Yale: Toronto lawyer and activist Jamil Jivani explores the destructive ideas that can influence young men. For Jamil Jivani, whose early years in Brampton were shaped by a father’s absence, an obsession with gangster subculture and friends who flirted with criminality, a capacity to aspire helped turn his life around.

    I met Lucas in the summer before I started high school. He briefly worked with my father at a restaurant downtown, and my father had introduced us in what felt like an attempt to pass me on to Lucas so I had somebody looking out for me in my father’s absence…A sense of urgency overcame me, and I was determined to embark on the criminal lifestyle I had long fantasized about…I went to one of my closest friends and asked him to locate a gun for me. A few days later he confirmed he could get one, quoted me a price…It would also have betrayed my mom’s trust. It might have caused her to lose faith in me altogether, and she was the only good thing in my life…I abruptly stopped talking to him and most of my other friends. I couldn’t face them because I felt that I had exposed myself as a fake, a wannabe. I also just wasn’t sure what to do with myself anymore; I was a person without a purpose…School was the only thing I had left, so I put my energy into my classes for the first time…He [friend Lucas] was convinced there was some conspiracy against him. Prosecutors, witnesses, police officers and judges all wanted to get him. Being in jail wasn’t his fault…When Lucas was released, I held nothing back. He grew more furious with my every attempt to tell him that he needed to think about his own responsibility in creating the situation he was in. He threatened me, accused me of believing the government’s lies about him and cussed a lot. We had the kind of no-holds-barred conversation that is hard to come back from. We never spoke again…in my first year of university I had come across one idea that made a world of difference: the capacity to aspire…Lucas desperately wanted to be admired by women and respected by men. He thought that meant he needed to be rich and tough, or at least appear that way…Psychologists Clark McCauley and Sophia Moskalenko McCauley identify “status seeking” (that is, pursuing respect and admiration) among peers as a key motivator for people who turn to violence. Young men are especially vulnerable to this way of thinking because testosterone levels appear to be an “important driver of status seeking.”…McCauley and Moskalenko note that if a young man can achieve status through mainstream means, such as school or work, he is less likely to turn to violence. By contrast, if a young man is not able to achieve status through mainstream means, he is more likely to seek that status through violence or other negative behaviours.

    Why did you have to wait until you are almost a septuagenarian to know about young men and violence?

    Weren’t you told in Sunday school the story of Cain who killed his brother Abel?

    Isn’t violence hardwired in the ‘psychopathic’ DNA of men who are all descendants of Cain; if we were to accept that Biblical tall tale of the ‘art’ of murdering one brother passing from one generation to the next.

    What you should be querying is why he Cain, his brother’s killer, wasn’t executed or incarcerated for life as is your wont to see applied to perpetrators of similar acts of fatal violence as witnessed today but was allowed to roam the earth spreading his genetic streak of violence with his equally ‘cursed’ sister by engaging in the first documented case of pre-Freudian incest.

    Like you, Cain was a producer of food crops and certainly not deserving of such a bum rap and bad press just because of a human frailty of losing his cool in a situation where he was taken advantage of and made to look like a downright fool just because his crops (after much toil and sweat) were stolen to fatten his younger brother’s hungry flock of black-belly sheep as sacrifice in the Age of Aries to appease a ‘bull’-headed unpredictable god called Yahweh formerly known as Baal of the Levant.

    The Facebook Cambridge Analytica scandal is an example to show how state and quasi state actors are capable of monitoring you an your internet usage

    What can be done [BY BU AND] on his/her end to neutralize most of this fear?

    The brackets and caps are mine.

    What can be done on BU’s side is to create a video/animation or subscribe to an online video/blog which carries the most up to date YET SIMPLEST VIDEO that will assist the average reader in an idiot proof process to guard one’s machine.

    De grandson for example has told the old man to use the Latest Tor Browser http://www.torproject.org to access BU and many of the other sites that the old man visits that are watched by third parties.

    Then, if you are really paranoid you can install VMWARE and other OSes that create virtual instances that isolate your machine completely at the time you interact with BU in particular OR THE INTERNET in general.

    One further step in limiting all outgoing and incoming traffic and outgoing to/from your computer are things like Hands Off and Glow Worm

    Again the issue is simplicity of the tools since too simplistic a tool does nothing AND YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING or it can badword your machine into the need for a total wipe for it to work again GIVEN THE RULE IMPLEMENTED and how you might have INADVERTENTLY locked down your machine

  • Today’s Barbados Today is scathing in its comment on the decision by the DPP to drop the charges against Lord Evil and his henchmen. If for no other reason that it took 4 years.
