    @ Hal

    You are doing something right when local Bajans attack you.

    They live in a warped world.

    If you agree with them you are their friends once you disagree frequently they seek to discredit and malign.

    Watch the ones who criticises you most they do the same things they want to pull you down for.

    Crabs in the bucket mentality and very untrustworthy people.

    I am not expecting to hear any further details of the body found in Welches
    Anyhow i have a right to speculate and that i would do until officials come to a righteous understanding that they are being paid by the people and their job is to present clear and irrefutable evidence no matter where it leads
    Dead bodies being found in stategically locations is not happenstance

    @ Mariposa

    At the risk of offending your fan base…….. Police said at approximately 11:20 am yesterday, they responded to reports of gunshots in the areas of Martinique Road, Ivy and the general vicinity of Welches, Flint Hall and Licorish Village. While combing a bushy area known as the old train line, which connects Licorish Village and Flint Hall, they found the body of 39-year-old well-digger, Kendrick King.

    You reminded us you “have a right to speculate,” which is true. But intelligent, reasonable people, would do so rationally.

    Why couldn’t you have speculated that the victim was shot, ran and fell where he was found, rather than suggesting he was “strategically placed” in the area?

    It’s clear you’re not pretending………… you are definitely……….

  • “Sir Mariposa makes observation as according to what sources told the police and where the bodies were found.accusing the former administration of ‘hiding up’ crime.

    My friend, there wasn’t anything sources told the police and where the body was found that would remotely suggest what you’re attempting to imply.

    What are the significant differences in this case, when compared with, for example, the case where, when sometime during the early morning hours of Friday, September 1, 2017, as a result of information received, police were led to the discovery of a male, Caucasian body in a remote area at Hillside Garden, the Mount, St. George?

    What are the significant differences in the media reporting crime or how the police progressively disseminates information on crimes, to the public, prior and post May 24, 2018?

    You’re only trying to make a case for usual political nonsense that the present ‘government,’ for some untoward, political reason you imagined or fabricated, is with-holding information about crime, when you KNOW the RESPONSIBILITY of giving the public details on crime lies with the RBPF…… and NOT the PM, AG or any other member of parliament.

    As such, you’re going about your observations dishonestly. But that your role on BU.

    And, it’s this type of silly political grandstanding and politicizing every issue that’s ‘watering down’ the blog.

    Firstly in my earlier comments my reference of sources was to what witness said they heard in Welches
    Not being any where in proximity of the incident
    I rely on media reports and sources
    The facts at this time suggest that witness said they heard gunshots coming from that area where the body in Welches was found
    Hence i am expecting officials to give a clear and define corroboration of what was said in the media
    Along with a clear explanation as to the condition of the body when it was found

    Okay. But bearing your above comments in mind, could you please refer us to the reports or facts from the media, sources and witnesses that SUGGESTED led you SPECULATE the body found at Welches, was “strategically placed (in that) area?”

    RE: “Hence i am expecting officials to give a clear and define corroboration of what was said in the media.”

    And, what else was REPORTED in the media OTHER than people saying they heard gunshots and called the RBPF and Police saying at approximately 11:20 am yesterday, they RESPONDED to REPORTS of gunshots in the areas of Martinique Road, Ivy and the general vicinity of Welches, Flint Hall and Licorish Village. While combing a bushy area known as the old train line, which connects Licorish Village and Flint Hall, they found the body of 39-year-old well-digger, Kendrick King?

    When you have political operatives fabricating stories, purposely misrepresenting facts and blatantly lying to REPEATEDLY give the impression ‘government’ (NOT the POLICE) is responsible for giving the public details on murders and purposely with-holding information relative to crimes committed in Barbados, emotions such as showing sympathy for the victims and their relatives, ‘goes through the window.’
