When The Police And Government Fail To Stop Local Drug Dealers…

Dealing Drugs To Belfast School Children Is Risky Business!

No, I don’t recommend this in Barbados, and yes I’m aware that Irish politics might have come into play…

… but for a moment I thought of some of those evil young men who sit on a stone wall in a certain St. Peter location.

    Aside from concern that vigilante justice may ‘get’ the wrong person, or make certain people easy targets, I really do not see the objection.

    Drug dealing scumbug is an appropriate placard and obviously, as here, the Police are for some reason unable to curb some of these guys.

    I say, well done lads. Hopefully they will continue this form of ‘objection’ to these scum who sell drugs to children.

    Maybe we can start this here too? I am sure the two major construction companies have plenty of tar and the chicken producers have plenty of feathers.

    If this does not work, why not let the enthusiastic gun-toting bird shooters losse on these scum instead.

    That’s it, how’s this for a slogan?

    ‘Save birds, kill drug dealers instead’ ?

  3. WHY is Alcohol legal??

    What about rum shop owners/dealers,too?
    Do we get to string them up for their equally-immoral(but somehow-legal) drug,too?

    Seriously: why is gut-rotting alcohol legal?

    I say we tar&feather rum drinkers,too.
    Do you realize that Barbados has a long and proud tradition and history of being a drug-producing island?
    That drug is ALCOHOL
    (Rum!) – and it’s a disgusting one!

    Drug dealing if RIFE in Bardados, especially around the tourist hubs on the South coast.

    About a month ago I walked from Bridgetown to Oistins in the early evening, keeping to the beach as much as I could. I was offered drugs three times and saw two ‘deals’ going on – both purchasers were tourists. Of the three times I was solicited, all sellers offered marajiuana (sp?) and one offered cocaine as well (and also women, but thats a different rant!).

    Do I look like a recreational drug user? I hope not, and I don’t look much like a tourist either. I’d like to think this was just an average day in South!

    I’d like to know if anything is being done about these parasites, as it is very negative for BIM’s image AND may lead to us attracting the wrong calibre of tourists. (Actually, I fear this may have already happened!)

    In the week that saw a damning report on the customer service skills of public sector workers in BIM, the three private sector ‘businessmen’ above showed a very polite attitude and friendly demeanor. Perhaps like the opium growers in Afghanistan, these people will be involved in drugs until there is a viable alternative OR a police crackdown, but preferably an approach which involves both.

    *****

    I must add that a don’t agree with vigilanteeism (is that a word), as meeting crime with another crime is only counter-productive. What would be much more useful is if people helped the police, a concept which some sectors of our society do not seem to have grasped OR are too scared to do.

    A good non-violent protest would be to follow the drug dealer around with a massive placard reading “GET YOUR DRUGS HERE!” and see how long he sticks around!! You may get beaten up, though.

  5. comehere

    You mean the beach bums who sit and harass everyone from tourists to locals, cuss any and all, the ones who the drug police could find with their eyes closed since everyone from Holetown to Speightstown knows who they are, you mean the LOUD motorbikes that run the drugs up and down to that SUGA SUGA MULLINS BEACH AREA??? Who’s getting paid to ignore this third world drug market?

    Yes, COMEHERE, I know too well the area of which you speak. It is a most sad day in Barbados when the memories our visitors take home with them is a recollection of bare fear and primitive actions by the boys on the wall. I only shake my head when the papers declare that drugs are found and suspects get away. How so? On our tiny island, surrounded by the sea, how do these people avoid arrest? Wake up, Barbados. Take action.

  8. nice job fellas
    you know down in texas, we woulda hang him high and dry

    The scourge of drugs seems to be unbeatable. Too many times there are “citizens” who are afraid to give information to the police.The law enforcers need information.
    That Mullins/Suga Suga area has become to the north what Rockley/Accra beach is to the south.
    Tourists know it and come looking for their fix.
    “Mr Big” needs to be arrested, but sad to say,he is “protected” by his minnows and some “law enforcers” who obviously supplement their meagre salaries with ill-gotten gains.

    I heard someone say that Tia Tottley was involved in the local drug thing… (Note the names have been changed to protect the possible—- innocent.) Anyone ever hear of such a thing so????

    lol at all of you, who really runs the drug game in barbados, i sure it s not the dealers.

    barbados is marketed as a sex (bi or otherwise) and drug island, where u can get anything.

    who is doing this marketing?

    locals use cannabis mainly, few use cocaine, the most cocaine is sold to tourist. y?

    why is there a scarcity of cannabis and cocaine?

    bajans wake up, wanna sleeping too long, the american thief all of the cannabis years ago from st. vincent, why nobody said nothing? in most countries in the world cannabis is legal.

    ” in most countries in the world cannabis is legal.”

    Sorry, not true, there are actually very few countries where it is totally legal. Even in Holland, which is famed for it’s cannabis cafes, the drug is still officially illegal, but the sale of it is regulated to certain premises who are supposed to dispense it in a responsible manner (like liquor is regulated in somewhere like Saudi). Its actually also illegal in Jamaica!!

    There is a VERY good argument for legalisation of cannabis, the advantages being:
    1) Take it off streets and break the link to other criminal activity such as hard drugs and vice
    2)Regulate the sale to places where it will be dispensed responsibly, possibly on a ‘consume on the premises’ basis.
    3)Regulate the purity and hygiene and make advice on consumption
    4) It can be taxed!
    5) Others I can’t think of right now as I am a bit bushed!……

    Personally I used to argue for this liberal approach, as cannabis is FAR less harmful to society than ALCOHOL, look at the stats.! However I am a little more reserved now because of the recent findings linking cannabis use with schizophrenia and depression. It makes me wonder whilst travelling the South coast in BB, whether our vagrants have succumbed to cannabis related mental problems.

    A question for “WHY is Alcohol legal??”:

    Is your anti-alcohol stance motivated by a will to see cannabis legalised? If not, I heartily disagree with banning C2H5OH, and this is not just ‘cos I like a beastly cold Banks! Banning anything which already has a market, especially something which for so many years has been socially acceptable, would be a NIGHTMARE. After all, its pretty easy to make!

    If you know this for a fact, then fine I’ll bow to your superior authority. I was not trying to fool anyone, just wondering, and with no particular desire to go sorting through the vagrants pockets, I guess I may never find out!

    Some questions for YOU:

    Where do the vagrants get the money for crack cocaine?

    Is it not more than a little convenient to give a group of undesirable people a name like ‘parro’, it stops you having to properly understand them?

    Do you believe in legalising cannabis?

    Come on give us some juice!

  17. Politicians are 10 years behind the times when it comes to hemp use. People have been fighting for a long time against marijuana and pot prohibition with some movement going on now. Still too slow for those caught up in the jail system for possessing a little weed. Our freedoms have been trampled on by folks who know nothing about how beautiful cannabis can be for someones life, if one learns how to grow cannabis. Keep up the good work.
