Not one word in the Barbados newspapers
According to the talk in Bridgetown, four days ago Constable Jonathan Barrow was shot four times in the legs. He was treated at hospital where doctors recovered at least two bullets from the wounds. Barrow is now resting at home.
Nothing in the news media, but everyone is talking.
First to report the shooting was Sheri Veronica (photo above) of Naked Departure blog who ran the story on July 28th, and followed up with a mention on her Naked Departure Talk Show yesterday.
Officer Barrow was one of the police involved in the infamous Shanique Marie ‘finger rape’ case. His partner at the time, Everton Gittens, is currently in Dodds Prison on murder charges stemming from the shooting of two men attacking Gittens’ alleged lover.

Drug dealers, corrupt politicians and bad cops
Who made this list?

That woman has stones.
And she’s pretty too!
