Why are Barbadians so angry?
Justice Carlisle Greaves posed this question after he dealt with a brother who confessed to killing his brother over the playing of loud music.
“Why does it take such little unimportant things to trigger us to curse and abuse people, to threaten people with violence?” the judge asked.
“We are so angry. For what? Over little things. Here we have a case where one is disturbed from sleep, where one doesn’t act with consideration for the other and the next thing it escalates and a brother is dead and everybody is left to suffer.”
And he urged Barbadians to say a prayer and to be grateful for what they have. (HLE)
