    A question for you.

    While you have not said it outright DO YOU WISH THAT MORE OF THE DRUG DEALER FOOT SOLDIERS get killed off?

    You know that depending on how you answer that, it defines you as either hopeful that these killers can be changed OR THAT THEY ARE A LOST CAUSE?

    With each death, especially the younger deaths, I grow more despondent with regard to the hopelessness that such represents in terms of “options for the perpetrators”

    That one could be so hopeless AND SO YOUNG.

    and what is Mugabe doing to give these citizens hope Tron?

    Not one RH and this is why de ole man been saying rather promoting this message

    And the only party with this deliverable IS THE PDP!

    The St. Andrew murder. The 2 victims and the two accuses are all YOUNG MEN aged between 20 and 24.
    Barely out of childhood.
    What is it with YOUNG MEN?

    +++++++++++++++++++++

    Their mothers perhaps?

    They all actually do have mothers, something they all have in common!!

    “Under the Illinois Parental Responsibility Law, you can be liable for the personal or property damages caused by the “willful or malicious acts” of a child “not yet 19 years of age,” if they actually live with you. It’s not easy to make parents liable under that law, but it extends your possible exposure another year, to age 19.”

    Are mothers (and fathers) in Barbados held legally responsible for the acts of their offspring?

    In Barbados most of the parenting is done by women, single women.

    In many cases, the man has disappeared for whatever reason!!

    While it would be interesting to know how these young murderers were raised seems we need to hold the parent, or parents responsible.

    Maybe if a parent/parents went through the raising process with the constant fear she/he/they would be held accountable for the actions of their children we would end up with fewer criminals.

    The only time we see a mother, rarely a father, appear speaking on behalf of a young criminal the story is how good a child he is.

    If the young criminal happens to be dispatched by the police in the execution of their duty the police are to blame.

    It should not get to this stage.

    If it does, there should be a record of the delinquency not only of the young criminal but of the parent/parents.

  • The discussion about the so-called murder statistics is once again totally hypocritical. The panelists criticize the government for an international drug war, which it did not initiate.

    The same discussants, however, remain silent about the Donville Inniss case. Or they even support it by demanding an ancient “complaint” (invented by the British to protect slave drivers from prosecution) that never occurs. The silence about the “Donville” case is very obvious and shows the people who opposes democracy and order on this island.

She must explain what was this public interest claim. Have the attorney general been asked any questions in parliament – or by the media?
    Since three persons were arrested over the alleged drug smuggling offence, does the withdrawal of the Herbert prosecution suggest the other two must be guilty, or at least there is more evidence to prosecute and to do so would be in the public interest? There is a case to be answered. Where is the president?

    Maybe he is NOT wealthy?

    According to sources he borrowed $70,000 from a friend to help with his kid’s tuition. I mean who borrows from a friend to put a kid through uni? Even a Simple Simon like me was able to put the kids through school with EARNED scholarships, and borrowings only from legitimate student loans places. I also hit up a sibling or two or three. Lolll!!!

    I’ll be honest I don’t know any friends who would lend me even $7 to put the kids through school.

    It is not as though uni is an unexpected expense. Parents receive at least 18 years notice that the uni time is coming.

    Unless like the former DLP administration “free’ UWI tuition is cut off from students and their poor parents with little or no notice. That was really, really bad thing for the administration in which Donville served to do.

    Once you are an adult you must take responsibility for your own actions. No point blaming mummy or daddy. I’ve never blamed either of my parents for a single thing. Long before I was 18 I was sensible enough to perceive that they were doing the best they could with what little they had. And they had very, very little.

    The young man who was recently found in a grave in St. Andrew had a “good” job. Another one who was convicted some years ago had a “good” job too. Worked with one of my siblings.

    We see that some of the 1% and some of the politicians are very, very greedy.

    But we are all afraid to say that some of our young men are greedy also.

    They want everything, and they want it now. And if they can get things by drug dealing they are willing to do so. They don’t care that they are putting their lives at risk. They don’t care that they are putting the health of other people’s sons and daughters at risk.

    The thing is when a young couple is in love nobody tells them about the vomit, the piss, the shit, the noise and the expense.

    @TheOGazerts

    Appreciate the feedback. I’d like to use this opportunity to clarify a few things:

    I too am a Bajan by birth (41 odd years ago) and up until a year or so ago, by residence.
    I recall a BU commenter, on this post, indirectly querying the independence of caribbeansignal.com. Let me be clear, the domain and the blog belong to me. When I present data, I do my best to present it from a non-partisan point of view. Of-course, commentators on BU will always try to spin it in a way that furthers their own agendas. But hey, humans will be human.
    In addition to the murder stats, I also track fuel prices in Bim and have 4+ years of freely and easily accesible data for those interested.
    I have also done research on gender equality in select board rooms of Caribbean companies.
    Finally, as a long time reader of BU, I may not agree with everyone’s opinion, but I respect the right for everyone to have an opinion. My only hope is that we try to refrain from the ad hominen attacks. If you disagree, great, but attack the argument, not the person making the argument. Then again, if we all did that, then it’s quite likely that a part of the entertainment and belly laff value of BU may decline. And we don’t want that, do we? Lol.

    All murders are reported in the print and electronic media. These reports are quoted in the regional media, making the news available around the Caribbean. Online papers can be read by people all over the world.

    With this in mind, could someone please explain why would any government in Barbados would want to hide the murder rate or suppress news about murders.

    All people are saying is that the government is being untruthful, but they can’t tell us how.

    Despite your denials, the reality is that you and ac are the same person or group of persons. It is highly unlikely that two people have identical writing styles. I’m sure if anyone read your comments prior to the last election, they would see how you opposed travel advisories about Barbados the same way you are now accusing this administration of doing.

    With that out of the way, how can you say you’re being truthful and accuse government of using obfuscation tactics when did not bring evidence to prove they are doing so?

    Tell us WHAT methods government is using to hide and confuse the citizens about the truthfulness of the murder rate. Tell us what is the source of your information. Where can we find it? In which newspaper was it reported? Or is this something that originated in George Street?

    Then you go on to say that people “understand the many strategies put in place to undermine people realities on the ongoing criminal activities and its effect on the number of murders commited so far,” which is basically a generalisation. It’s expected that operatives like you would say people know about the strategies. But, where is the PROOF? Tell us WHAT are these strategies? Describe them or give us details.

    Without giving us facts or PROOF, you are merely accusing government based on hear-say or on what you believe.

    @TronSeptember 14, 2019 10:16 AM “Or let’s take your assertion that you can go into @government buildings with short pants.”

    There are no government buildings.

    There are only buildings paid for by the taxpayers.

    That is buildings that we money paid for.

    You like you forget that “the government” B nor D don’t wuk no where.

    The government has never paid a cent of taxes in its (non) life.

    We buildings.

    And if we feel like wearing short pants, we will wear short pants.

    Ad if we feel like wearing arm holes and no underpants, so be it.

  • As for govt obfuscation.The proof lies in their detailing of murder with descriptive and separation measures which in itself would remove some of the sting and over flow of negative press. (Quote)

    Is the above mumbo jumbo the best you can offer as proof? All you did is post another incoherent generalisation.

    Please explain in English what do you mean by saying “detailing of murder with descriptive and separation measures?”

    What are “descriptive and separation measures?” Give us examples.

    It does not make sense. You are making things up as you go.

    When has giving murder statistics become the job of any government?

    As far as I can remember no government in the history of Barbados has ever taken on the responsibility of giving details on murders or murder statistics. This was always done by the police.

    You are WRONG!!!!

    It’s clear that you’re making up things as you go.

    The RBPF’S personal department, which is usually headed by a senior superintendent, is responsible for the recruitment of police officers.

    After the initial interviews, a written examination, medical and psychiatric evaluations, as well as back ground checks, the prospective recruit has to meet with a recruitment panel of senior police officers for a final interview before he/she is chosen to attend the police training school.

    This is an internal process and is not overseen by government.

    Police Officers are referred to the Police Services Commission for dismissal.

    What does Mottley sitting at a media briefing on the Crichlow case have to do with anything?

    As I said, you are criticizing for the sake of criticising. You made certain accusations that you’re unable to prove, explain or defend.

    Stop making up things as you go.

  • There were 29 gun-related crimes during the first 6 months of 2019 or an average of just under 5 per month. Since July the total is 2. Has the access to guns and especially ammunition been impacted due to RBPF or government iniatives. Are knife-related murders linked to drugs-gang warfare? More drugs available so need to war? Discuss for 20 points and depth recognition. #nospin

    Guyson Mayers was replaced with Margot Greene as chairman of the Police Services Commission. Keith Whittaker was retained on the “new” Commission, but, unfortunately, he died in June 2019.

    However, I understand PSC was abolished and a new body was established with responsibility for the police, prison and fire officers.

    Has the access to guns and especially ammunition been impacted due to RBPF or government iniatives…”

    Hee Hee it has nothing to do with any government initiatives.

    What it does have to do with is THE EDICT as advised by de ole man.

    “…Mother, son murdered at home in Rices shooting …”

    Mar 17, 2019 · Barbados murder toll for 2019 climbs to 18 with a double homicide in a rural community.

    On Sunday March 17th 2019 about 8:10 pm police responded to a report made via telephione that two masked men were in the area of a residence located at Rices, St. Philip….”

    THE EDICT IS A VERY SIMPLE ONE REALLY.

    Any unsanctioned murder WHICH MAKES THE GOVERNMENT OF BARBADOS under Mugabe look like if it is not in control of crime will be met with this type of retribution

    Wunna got to talk to de fellers pun de street though.

    Wunna heah pun Barbados Underground real out of it!

    Go down in *** and talk wid *** and wunna going know what going on!

    UNSANCTIONED MURDERS WILL RESULT IN DEATHS not death.

    And the anonymous tips dat de police getting are part of the real crime interventionists strategy.

    The Royal Baygon Police Force IS NOT THE CRIME SOLUTION, the drug lords are.

    But doan mind de ole man, nor me sources, heheheheh

    Listen to the braying mule…Hee Hee
