Barbados Police Ignore Death Threats Against Hotel Owner – How Will Other Offshore Investors React?

Barbados Free Press received the following letter from hotel owner Adrian Loveridge. Mr. Loveridge came to Barbados over 20 years ago as a foreign investor – seeing all the potential of our island and our people. In fact, as he says, he fell in love with Barbados and so decided that of all the places he’s been – he would risk everything here.

He and his wife Margaret run Peach and Quiet Hotel on the south coast. Their establishment is always top-rated as one of the best bargains in tourism in the entire Caribbean.

Yet, for the last few years Mr. Loveridge’s experience with the current government has not been smooth. He has been tossed off government tourism advisory boards, fired from the Barbados Advocate newspaper where he wrote a tourism and business column and for the last year or so… he and his wife have experienced a never-ending litany of threats against them.

Threats to murder, threats to rape, threats to burn down the hotel. A burglary in the middle of the night under strange circumstances, a ladder up against the Loveridges’ bedroom at 3am… the message being obvious when connected with the threats.

The Royal Barbados Police Force has been notified of these threats on several occasions – most recently 2 weeks ago.

The police response? Nothing. Nada. Not even a phone call.

Why? Because on Barbados the police do not care about the rule of law.

Foreign investors are welcome on Barbados… as long as they keep their mouth shut about any corruption or mismanagement. We have our own ways here and you’d better know that if you come into conflict with a politician YOU ARE IN CONFLICT WITH THE POLICE AS WELL.

Meanwhile, the police also continue to ignore complaints of threats to murder an old lady who is involved in a lawsuit where the Prime Minister and the Chief Justice are defendants. In that case, death threats have been issued against witnesses and a lawyer from Canada AND THE POLICE IGNORE THESE THREATS AS WELL. (Story at Keltruth Blog link here)

Oh yes, Mr. Foreign Investor…. Come to Barbados! Tropical paradise!

Just watch out you pay the appropriate tributes to the establishment… or you too will wake up at 3am with someone breaking into your kitchen, and find a ladder against your bedroom window.

Welcome to Barbados…

It is now a full seven days since I reported (in writing), marking it for the personal attention of Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin, the multiple death threats that myself and wife have received and the perpetrators intention to burn down our hotel.

Knowing that our hotel was currently full with a capacity of 44 guests, I had perhaps mistakenly thought that the Royal Barbados Police Force would have found this of interest.

Sufficient interest, to respond, as clearly if the repeated threats had been carried out, the global media attention it would have attracted, would certainly have impacted negatively on our tourism industry.

I also emailed the Prime Minister personally back on the 29th December 2007, advising of the threats, but again no response has been received from his office.

It leaves me to think that is any citizen safe in this country?

The threats to Dr. Don Marshall, Irene Sandiford-Garner and the recent attacks on the family of a prominent businessman while he was attending a political meeting are equally disturbing.

Abortion As Election Issue Heats Up – Follows BLP Candidate And Abortions Manager George Griffith

Abortion In The #1 Killer Of Blacks In America
.
“Abortion is the number-one killer of blacks in America. We’re losing our people at the rate of 1,452 a day. That’s just pure genocide. There’s no other word for it. (Margaret) Sanger’s influence and the whole mindset that Planned Parenthood has brought into the black community … say it’s okay to destroy your people. We bought into the lie; we bought into the propaganda…

Some blacks have even made abortion “rights” synonymous with civil rights.”
…Rev. John Hunter of LEARN

george-griffith-abortion-barbados.jpg“And for those who feel that women in the 21st century should not terminate a pregnancy if it is unwanted and if they so determined, they would have to ask themselves why are we then saying and talking about fundamental rights and freedoms if we then are going to discriminate against people and condemn that when they exercise that right,” Abortions Manager & BLP Candidate George Griffith quoted in The Nation News

“Dead Weight Of Human Waste Should Be Eliminated” – Founder Of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger
.
“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents.

It [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.”

…Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood (background here)

Will Barbados Elect An Abortions Manager As A Member Of Parliament?
.
As BLP Candidate and abortions manager George Griffith is finding out, ordinary folks in Barbados aren’t exactly lining up to shake his hand. Oh sure, he has his core support group follow him around looking happy and singing songs – but they look suspiciously like the same people who are committed to Planned Parenthood in a big way.
Will the ordinary Bajan vote for someone who is so committed to ending human life that he made a career out of it?
Even folks who don’t feel strongly one way or another about abortion might not want to see Griffith as their local representative.
.
How much will abortion be on people’s minds when they hear the name of George Griffith? We found a few recent articles from The Nation News from before the election was called.
.
There is no doubt that abortion will be a factor in the George Griffith campaign, but no one knows how much of a factor it will be.
.
What are your thoughts on this, folks?
.
Here are a few articles from the Nation News…
