Murderer uses victim’s BlackBerry to broadcast shooting news?

Jason Husbands’ family, friends receive shocking text message

Barbados police are investigating the shooting death of a motorist on Lamberts Road, St. Lucy on Tuesday afternoon. Jason Husbands was found dead lying next to his auto, having apparently been shot in broad daylight. Lamberts Road at this location isn’t exactly busy but neither is it deserted or infrequently traveled by the public. Somebody must have seen something in the middle of the day!

Family and friends told The Nation that all Mr. Husbands’ contacts received a message from his BlackBerry that he had been shot, and that from the content of the message they believe it was sent by the killer or killers.

Why would Husbands’ killer send a message like that? That act in itself is a message to Husbands’ family and friends – and to the people of Barbados – that the killer thinks he (she? they?) can act with impunity and not worry about the police.

    Acting with a feeling of impunity of legal consequences is the example given to Barbadian society for many years by the Government and powerful, influential, wealthy individuals within that society. Now everybody is acting that way. Live with it.

    But they seem to be shooting the wrong people! If they are sending messages don’t shoot the messengers!
