Four Shot At Football Match As Thousands Run For Their Lives: Jamaica? Guyana? No… Barbados!!!


Welcome To Your New Island

The Barbados Advocate and the Nation call the shootings an “incident”.

We call it Barbados out of control – the natural result of what happens when you combine no rule of law with no effective police force and a top-down culture of corruption in government that has permeated everyday life.

It looks to us like 15 years of starvation wages for the Royal Barbados Police Force and 15 years of corrupt governments are the chickens that are coming home to roost.

Read it and weep…
