Mia: Too many innocent people being shot


Share post:

THE COUNTRY NEEDS to know that someone is in charge.

This is the cry from Opposition leader Mia Mottley who has called on Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite to come to the people and speak on the current crime situation.

“Barbados does not have the buffer of size that Jamaica and Trinidad has and therefore  a shooting in St Lucy will cause panic in Silver Sands. What is frightening is that there are too many stories that the absence of marksmanship is leading to a lot of stray bullets so then you have a lot of people who are now unintended victims,” said Mottley, who was speaking Wednesday at a nomination for the Christ Church East seat which was won by attorney Wilfred Abrahams.

Mottley said this country was going to go through some rough times before “we get it civil again”. (LK)
