    I am so glad BFP exists…I planned on making Barbados my full time residence but changed my mind becasue of the dishonesty of people. I have had 3 thefts in 5 years….and if BFP was around I would have known so much more than I did and there is not a chance I would have invested in property in Barbados.

    Even the police chief say there is a gun culture in Barbados. There is a culture of dishonesty that will continue to be a stumbling block in holding the country back. Until the people who are elected get integrity…no one else will. Big change is needed!!!

    it is all going down hill…..The Merrymen could not record their song about beautiful Barbados today.

    Tourists and investors be very aware of things!!!!

    -ipod and robbed at Pebbles beach
    -Cannon 10 mega piel camera taken
    -toshiba lap top computer taken

    and dealing with house builders is disgraceful. they take so long and never finish….

    on top of that

    Looks like your last thought got cut off midstream. Let me guess, you were going to talk about dealing with the Bajan lawyers next.

    Green Monkey….yep lawyers….they are all a bad bad bunch….they all connected. It is a sad sad thing to see such a beautiful place get so bad.

    The greedy and dishonest ones on the island making it a hard place for the decent good folks to have a good life.

    I took a walk though customs yard the other day….i see lots of wrecked cars being imported. No laws to control that either…those VIN numbers worth a lot of money……the cars worth nothing. I think to buy a used car and then see this…..nope best to stay away from this place.

    not a good idea. Barbados doesn’t need this kind of publicity

    My friend stopped off at the bottom of Holder’s Hill, St. James to buy from some road side food vendors with a tent, robbed of phone, money last friday. Later found out that this is a high crime area from another friend who has connections. Stay away. Loads of burglaries and robberies in the area. We have to take crime seriously it has already spiraled out of control.

    Typical Bajan ostriches. It does not take Facebook or any other social media to present the truth to tourists, although it does speed up the process. Every tourist that got either robbed, conned or scared shyteless by someone attempting to break into their accommodation or stopping them on the road to extract a “toll fee”, never forgets and they go home and tell everyone they know wuh happen to them. Worse still, many tourists subjected to these kind of incidents never return to Barbados.
    As I have said before, the number one priority for most tourists is SAFETY.
    You two ostriches would openly deny the right of any traveler to Bim, the right to make an informed decision about where they will go to spend their hard earned dollars? Steeewpppps!

    In what way does this page help in solving or stopping crime. Shouldn’t we be loking for solutions and not sensationalism?

    i don’t ever expect to see my money, blackberry, camera or diabetic testing equipment— taken jan. 2— again…what’s the point of mentioning that when someone managed to sell my bberry and the other stuff. i have to say that since this incident earlier this month i’ve managed to rebuild my interest in barbados but i’ll always watch my stuff like a hawk.

  13. candain bajan

    confirmed that there 1s thousands of illegal guns in barbados and they are some very high powered gun like uzis, aks and other submachine guns thats
    why there is so much shooting and gunpoints robberies at night in the country side
