Stuart upset about level of violence
FOR THE SECOND TIME this week, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has expressed his unhappiness about the level of violence being used to resolve disputes by some in society.
“It does nothing for the reputation of Barbados to have human life devalued in the way in which I see it being devalued in cold blood by certain elements, admittedly a small element in the society,” he told the media yesterday, after delivering the feature address at Reynold Weekes Primary School’s graduation at the Barbados Workers’ Union Labour College, Mangrove, St Philip.
“But that small element can do Barbados’ reputation untold damage . . . . I am not at all happy with these developments.”
Stuart said that the entire nation had to come together at all levels and recognise that everyone was “under threat if this approach to life takes hold in Barbados”. (BGIS/BW)
