Dentella Dorma Marie Hoyos: Raped, beaten and robbed – Barbados Police advised me to keep quiet or lose my child

Barbados Rape Sexual Assault

“The police said I might not be able to see my son if I pursued charges.”

special by Dentella Dorma Marie Hoyos

I once loved the little Rock but after being raped here literally and figuratively it has changed for me.  I have kept so much pain buried inside and at some point you become like a pressure cooker.  The pressure cooker blows a gasket.  The water is boiling and those boils are tears of a tormented traumatized soul.

I never like to talk about this but will shortly after I was separated from my husband in Barbados. I watched my mother die suddenly in front of me in a home utilities some were turned off. Doctor Richard Corbin in his own words.  “Mrs. Hoyos has been under tremendous stress and the sudden death of her mother is related to her divorce.”

Then after my mom died which was the first devastating blow of many. I was dealt another blow. As I was left to fend for myself . I hired some workers to do work on the beach home. I paid them what they asked and they worked late one evening. They knew I lived alone and my boyfriend was gone. I went to rest as I had hired them for a week. I was subsequently assaulted in the very home that I am in now. I had a boyfriend at the time that was supportive and comforting after this hellish ordeal. I can’t believe I am one of those one in four women stats but I am.

I often tried so hard to bury that pain and it comes back when I least expect it and like flood gates of hells fires have been opened. With the help of this boyfriend ( We ) found one of my attackers. He can confirm this and would and has and remains a close friend. The police said I might not be able to see my son if I pursued charges. Documented. I was so confused. What do I do? Catch 22… do I bring justice and not see my son. What was I to blame that I hired some bad workers? Unknowingly recommended to me, this what is being laid at me.

So somewhere my attackers are walking free… Free to harm again. Free to hurt another’s heart. For any tears any woman has if she is assaulted and I did not get them locked up I feel just as much at fault and blame. If I had only been stronger and had the courage and conviction to pursue a criminal case.

Porn profiteer Minister Donville Inniss cautions Barbadians against websites that “deliberately spew filth”

Orgasm Barbados Inniss 2

“Inniss also voiced concern about people using social media to spread “the nastiest” and “most untrue” reports about fellow Barbadians, and warned that the state would do what was necessary to tackle the perpetrators.” (Nation News, April 8, 2015)

Above: One of the porn websites that made Inniss money

Donville Inniss made a fortune on Internet Porn, now he wants to censor political debate and truth

Pssst… Want to hear a good one?

Minister of Industry Donville Inniss and his government are preparing a law against what he calls “cyber-crime” – but protecting people against hacking is only part of the law. Censorship is what it is all about.

Lately the Minister has been speaking to all who will listen that social media, blogs, twitter and facebook is “out of control, running amuck, spewing filth”

Donville Inniss has a good reason to want to stop the truth… for years he made money as the Online Porn King of Barbados, and no – it wasn’t that he owned a website company and other people put porn up on his servers. That’s what he loves to tell people, but a little digging on the internet shows that Inniss registered porn trademarks in the USA and Canada. Barbados Free Press covered that and printed proof in a series of articles listed below.

How low can you go?

Barbados Government Minister Donville Inniss was part of the lucrative online sex business for years. He profited from websites where desperate pregnant women and teenagers performed sex acts for money.

Inniss also profited from websites showing humans committing sex acts with animals.

You know we couldn’t say this if it wasn’t true folks. Our WordPress hosting company would take us down faster than a rum disappears at Oistens on a Friday night.

Inniss and Orgasm.com profited from websites with pregnant women porn, teenaged porn and sex with animals. All the proof is in our articles and after all these years Inniss hasn’t been able to make Barbados Free Press remove these articles. Because they are for true!

Only one journalist on this rock had the integrity to ask Minister Inniss about his porn business, and Inniss responded by savaging Ian Bourne whenever and wherever he could.

Go ahead, Minister Inniss. Pass your internet censorship law.

Everybody knows why you want that law.

40 years ago Barbados teenager Marcia Rollins went to England to become a nurse

Black Caribbean nurses made a huge difference in England’s National Health Service

Marcia Rollins is from Barbados. She always wanted to be a nurse but opportunities were limited on the island so when the UK needed new recruits she joined thousands of other Caribbean people and left for the ‘mother country’.

“It was always my dream to be a nurse. England was seen as the mother country and there were opportunities in England moreso than here in Barbados to do nursing.

I was terrified but full of hope for the future…

My plans were to go there and study nursing and get back to Barbados as fast as I could.”

Marcia was just 19 when she arrived in England and intended to return to Barbados soon after her training finished. She actually ended up spending 40 years in the NHS making a unique and valuable contribution as a Registered Nurse and gaining a diploma in health care. She retired in 2008 and moved back to Barbados.

“It was always my dream to be a nurse. England was seen as the mother country and there were opportunities in England moreso than here in Barbados to do nursing.

I was terrified by full of hope for the future…

My plans were to go there and study nursing and get back to Barbados as fast as I could.

You had things that weren’t very nice – Get back to the Jungle. Take your black hands off me. Things like that were said to you. To be quite honest, I didn’t let things like that bother me…”

Then I had a family… two small children and going back to Barbados was a far dream. I have no regrets. I consider England to be a University of Life.”

After years of denial, Bajan Reporter Ian Bourne finally admits that Islam and the Koran makes Western society “more dangerous, less tolerant, less civilised and less free”

It has been four years since Ian Bourne fell into his own trap and posted a cartoon of Jesus giving the finger, but then wouldn’t post a cartoon of Mohammed giving the finger… and then Bourne took down the Jesus cartoon so he wouldn’t be seen as a hypocrite for insulting Jesus but not Mohammed.

For years Bourne criticised BFP for asking questions about how the Koran and Islam mandate killing of unbelievers and former Muslims, about the lesser status of women in Islam, about how the Koran says it takes four women to equal one man witness, about how Muslims should hate Jews, about how the Koran and Islam instruct slavery, rape and submission of non-Muslims.

And now Bajan Reporter publishes Pat Condell’s latest video Nothing to do with Islam.

Could it be that Ian has had an epiphany?

If so… good for Ian.

If not… pass me another Banks beer baby!

Sheri Veronica – As school children in Barbados we were taught to hate Jamaicans

Sheri Veronica Barbados

“Respect Jamaicans”

by Sheri Veronica

THE TRUTH IS, we were taught to hate JAMAICANS.  As a little girl in primary school, our teacher taught us that Barbados was the jewel of the Caribbean.  We were taught that any mad/crazy slave or any slave who could not take instructions, were shipped off to Jamaica.  This was the mandate, I supposed in my little head (or was that taught to me also), of every Caribbean island.  Send the mad and **aggressive slaves to Jamaica.  Then as time passed and you start to see clearer, meet people and question things, you soon realize that the insurgent slaves were the brave ones.  They were the men and women who could not be broken…

Barbados news media and blogs lament Charlie Hebdo murders and loss of press freedom – but not enough to print the Mohammed cartoons

Mohammed Goat Cartoons

Yup, we anonymous writers at Barbados Free Press have published Mohammed cartoons in the past, as we publish the one above now. (Hey… The muslim prophet Mohammed sure has eyes and a tongue for that goat’s behind, doan you think?)

But that doesn’t take much courage at all.

So we can hardly fault the Barbados Advocate, The Nation News and Barbados Today for not publishing the “offending” Mohammed cartoons that were the excuse for three devout Muslims to commit their usual murders – this time in Paris.

Even the worshiped New York Times gave the “juis suis Charlie” salute, but didn’t have the courage to print the same Mohammed cartoons that were the latest excuse for Muslim violence and murder. The NY Times said it was out of respect, not fear, that they didn’t print the Hebdo cartoons. Really? The NY Times sure printed the infamous “Piss Christ” photo of a crucifix upside down in a jar of human urine.

Why did the NY Times print something offensive to Christians but will not print a Mohammed cartoon? Because the New York Times editors like the rest of us fear that if they print the Mohammed cartoons, they will be murdered by any number of violent devout Muslims who wish to obey the verses of the Koran that instruct Muslims to murder.

So we self censor or publish anonymously because we know that Islam is a violent religion, that encourages adherents to believe that vile, barbaric behaviour and violence will gain them heaven. The problem is with the foundation of Islam – not some current flavour or interpretation.

“There is an absolute and utter failure of the majority of Muslims to this day to condemn continued acts of violence in the name of Allah and to purge their religion of those who foment such violence.”

And that’s something we’re going to have to face here on this rock sooner or later.

Look no further than the Al-Falah Muslim School to learn what Barbadian children are being taught by their devout Muslim teacher… Barbados Muslim Girls School, 14 year old student: “Nothing wrong with beheading, chopping off your hands, severe beatings”

Someday those chickens a going to come home to roost here, just as they did in Paris.

Battle of Broken Hill: 100 years since the first jihadist terror attack in Australia

Alma Cowie, Katrina Dawson (r): murdered in Australia by foreign jihadists 100 years apart

Alma Cowie, Katrina Dawson (r): murdered in Australia by Muslim jihadists 100 years apart

One hundred years ago, January 1, 2915, two Muslim immigrants to Australia launched jihad attacks on a Sunday excursion train, killing four and wounding several others before being killed by police, in what became known as the Battle of Broken Hill.

On December 15, 2014, a Muslim cleric took hostages at gunpoint in a Sydney Australia cafe and held up an ISIS terror flag in the window. Thanks to Sheikyermami.com for the photos of the two victims one hundred years apart.

The list of murders to please Allah (P.BUH) between those two dates is impressive, and surely must be pleasing to the Muslim prophet who himself loved to behead, rape and enslave infidels – and instructed that his followers do the same.

The Holy Koran instructs all good Muslims to commit acts of violence to spread the religion and political system called Islam.

So that’s exactly what followers are doing.

Any questions?
