ATTORNEY GENERAL DALE MARSHALL is urging Barbadians not to be quiet on crime and violence, as no corner of the island is off limits to the scourge.

He made the plea on Saturday night during a cocktail reception to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Crime Stoppers Barbados at the Southern Palm Beach Club in St Lawrence Gap, Christ Church.

Pointing out that the longest journey on the island, from South Point in St Philip to North Point, St Lucy, took under an hour, Marshall contended that all Barbadians were at “risk” and therefore did not have the luxury of saying that crime did not or would not affect their community.

Making reference to Bathsheba in his St Joseph constituency, he revealed that the once peaceful village was also reeling from the upsurge of violent crime as “young men are threatening law-abiding neighbours with guns”.

“So when you think that what confronts us today is limited only to inner City neighbourhoods like Chapman Lane and the New Orleans, it only takes a Bathsheba bus to get from Town to the East Coast of our country,” Marshall said. (SDB Media)
