How long since we had an actual MURDER TRIAL in Barbados?

Charles Leacock, DPP frightened of murder trials?

Charles Leacock, DPP frightened of murder trials?

“The Director of Public Prosecutions will probably justify each individual decision, but he cannot justify his overall cowardliness.

Folks, I woke up this morning and for some reason a fact and a question came into my mind:

Fact: All persons accused of murder in Barbados are allowed to plead guilty to a lessor crime. Always.

Question: How long has it been since we had a real murder trial in this country?

Whether you talk about Anna Druzhinina murder or the Camus Trendz firebombing mass murder or any murder in Barbados, one truth comes to the surface: DPP Charles Leacock always makes a deal in murder cases to allow the accused to plead to a minor offense.

NEVER do we have a trial.

WHY?

The justice system wants my respect? Then the justice system should get real or STFU!

The Director of Public Prosecutions will probably justify each individual decision, but he cannot justify his overall cowardliness.

  1. WTF?

    Anna’s murder was a murder. They hanged her, watched her die and did not cut her down, then set the house on fire. If that is not murder then what is?

    This man Leacock think he is god over bajans. When he let Anna’s murderers off with a kiss I knew there was no hope for law on this island.

  2. just want to know

    Those murderers should be hanged, to do such a horrible thing to sixteen year old; & maybe put Leacock in the mix as well. Too many murders are happening in this small island & no sympathy for the victims family, what injustice!!!!!!!!!

  3. lily white

    where does Leacock come from? Guyana?
    he not a Bajan.
    what are his credentials?
    where he pop up from?
    someone has to know about he background.
    i get a bad feel with this man
    who is he married to?

  4. After 8 years the murder trial that killed my Aunt Vivienne Haynes started this Monday! 8 years!
