Violent Threats Continue – Barbados Police Do Nothing

A friend who knows I write for BFP asked if all those threats to murder Adrian Loveridge stopped when the new government took power. The short answer is “No, the threats continue and the police continue to do what they do best – cover-up crimes likely to involve political elites.”

My friend then defended the police saying that they can’t do anything without witnesses willing to testify, and seeing as how BFP and Barbados Underground blogs are written anonymously, Mr. Loveridge cannot expect the police to do anything.

I explained that the police had received IP numbers from bloggers and witnesses who were willing to testify and that they had a victim in Mr. Loveridge who had already filed reports with the police. In fact, Cable and Wireless informed Adrian Loveridge that they had already provided the information about who was doing the threats to both the police and the former Attorney General. (See HERE)

“Oh, I see what you mean then.” said my friend.

Regular visitors to the Barbadian blogs are well aware that a person or persons have been making threatening comments for the last ten months or so on various blogs. Victims of the death threats include hoteliers Adrian Loveridge and his wife Margaret, bloggers Ian Bourne (Bajan Reporter blog), Kathy Davis (Keltruth blog) and lawsuit defendant Marjorie Knox.

Of particular interest is that threats were also made to burn down the Loveridge’s hotel, and that two arsons did happen. When someone threatens to burn down a hotel, and then there is an arson, one should expect some reaction from the police, don’t you think?

The threats were properly reported to the Royal Barbados Police Force along with the IP information that would enable the police to find the culprits, but seeing as how the main suspect(s) are BLP government supporters – perhaps even linked to the BLP government itself – we didn’t expect that the police would do anything more than pretend to investigate.

And that’s pretty well what happened with the police… Nothing.

And with the police unwilling to do anything, of course the threats like those above continue even to today.

BFP Is Going To Publish All The Threats And The IP Information

We don’t know if this will ever shame the police or the government into revealing or charging the person(s) who is doing the threats but we will publish the details of a selection of threats in this article – including the IP information and date etc..

We’re not sure how long it will take us to go back in our records, but we will try to post a few every day for the next week or two. I think we’ll start back last year at the beginning and then work forward to the present. That way readers can appreciate how the threats developed. Also, readers will see that while some of the comments might not be considered threatening by themselves, they are threatening in context of other comments left by the same people.

Readers should also be aware that on occasion the people posting the threats will do so using the handles of known and responsible BFP readers, so don’t pay too much attention to the name of the poster… it is the IP Internet number that counts!

It will be a long list that develops every day as we have time. If you want to have a look, you can click on the next link… Continue reading

Interesting Coincidence – William Duguid And Persons Making Death Threats Used The Same IP Internet Number A Year Apart

We’re Doing Some IP Research…

Hi folks. As you will see when we post the article after this one, the death threats against Adrian Loveridge and others continue – so we are doing some research into the internet source of the death threats and look at the amazing coincidence that we found about IP Number 72.22.157.140…

The IP number was originally used by Dr. Duguid of the BLP when he first set up the official BLP Blog and asked us and our readers for our opinions. That was back in May of 2006.

Then over a year later in August of 2007, the folks who run BFPE blog who also made death threats against Adrian Loveridge and others used the same IP number as Dr. Duguid.

Now… a few points…

We understand that IP Internet addresses can and do change occasionally…

HOWEVER, we also know that some IP numbers are permanently assigned. Cable and Wireless would be able to look in their records and see about this IP and if it was or is permanently assigned.

Wouldn’t it be quite a coincidence if Dr. Duguid posted from a permanently assigned IP number at say, BLP Headquarters, and then some time later BFPE posted threats from the same IP number at BLP Headquarters?

Cable and Wireless could easily check this out.

Quite the coincidence, don’t you think?

Here are the comments that came from this IP. All dates and times are GMT… Continue reading
