Public encouraged to ‘snitch’
The rate of murders on the island reached a historic high of 49 last year, and with the first already recorded this year, at least one member of the Royal Barbados Police Force has come out to urge Barbadians to see providing information, also known as “snitching”, as a greater good.
While delivering the feature address at The St Michael School annual speech day and prize giving ceremony on Friday, lawman and former headboy of the Martindale’s Road institution, Ryan Brathwaite, warned that a person can never tell when the tables might turn.
“We live in a society now where people believe they should not snitch, they should not become informants. I want to say to you that you are being a nice, decent, moral, citizen of your beloved Barbados, and your contribution is to ensure we continue to live in a safe Barbados.” (SDB Media)
