The Nation’s Associate Editor, Sherie Holder-Olutayo takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados. Today’s front page story which revealed that eight young men who stole copper and cable from local businesses, has our online readers buzzing. Here’s what some of our online readers had to say. Av Ellis Bowen: What about the people who purchased the copper from them? Reeko Lynch: Sad that this is the life these young men chose for themselves. Paul Forde: Sad thing is that all of them are between the ages of 17-25. Margaret Lorde: What a shame, ridiculous, dey all want some hot lashes in their backsides. Jon-Ross Johnson: Sorry to see. Last week customs people get bail I think for bring drugs in two barrels. these get sent up something ain’t right. Youngters ain’t not going to work for $300 a week when copper makes money. Trevor Wood: What about the people who bought the copper? If they are still operating and offering money on the black market, all that will happen is 8 others will come in and fill the void these leave behind. Conchita Moseley: Young able bodied men just wasting their lives. Have all the opportunities, free educations better homes and lifestyles but they have chosen to become criminals. Jim Lynch: I guess they thought it was a good idea at the time... pity none of them had any brains or morals.
