Hang them high, says The Sheriff
Murderers deserve nothing less than the death penalty, says concerned citizen Steve Hunte, also known as “ The Sheriff”.
And he turned up at The Nation yesterday with a noose to demand that the Attorney General move with speed to make hanging those who are convicted of killing possible again.
Hunte, a plumber by profession who contested last year’s General Election as an Independent candidate, condemned those responsible for taking the lives of 20 people so far for the year.
“We need to get Barbados cleaned up. We cannot use deterrents any more; we have to use detergents to clean the entire nation,” he said, echoing some of the views that have been expressed on The Nation’s Facebook page in recent days in response to gun violence. (TG)
