Just read this on another forum. Great news I think!
Yes ...good news ....BUT
... IMHO this has taken far far too long to resolve ...just how difficult is it to put a couple of plain clothes police officers in a hire car and drive past
Hope this news will put some traveller's minds at ease - yes mdp it has taken far too long and may not be the complete end to it, but it's a start i suppose. Hopefully we can get updates in the near future from anyone visiting that area.
and thanks Em for the news.
At long last it seems all the posts here on Tripadvisor and the Barbados Free Press about this have done some good.
Yes great news, Barbados will definitely be better off without that sort of thing.
This is indeed what we need to hear. It saddened me to think that this beautiful gem of the Caribbean was being tarnished with this isolated thuggish behaviour. And maybe more than that, the level of concern it has caused which has maybe stopped people visiting for the first time.
I have always felt safe in Barbados. News of the Boscobel louts havn't and won't stop me taking my family there. Reports of the police finally acting on this sort of undesirable element can only do the island good.
So glad to see that justice has been done and hopefully that will be the last we hear about visitors being harrassed in the area. I took some friends to Animal Flower Cave a couple of weeks back and there was a guy waiting on the corner giving directions we just drove past but its very disconcerting for strangers to the island when people do this. I notice that John the dog replied to the bajanreporter story in his own inimitable negative way. I am very protective of my visitors just in case anyone steps out of line in their presence and don't cover up what happens to me here. Well done RBPF
John the Dog is still around???? Where can I find him....am in the mood for a fight!!!!! Lol
