Here it is again, another woman loosing her life to domestic violence in less than six months.
This is so sad that the powers that be seem not to see the urgency in placing laws in place to combat this treatment of women. Something should have been done after that lady who lost her life so violently some months ago. Now you have yet another lady being stabbed to death in front of other people.
The sad thing is: How can these things happen in public places and no one does anything to help that person?
I think it’s about time that persons in charge work earnestly to make the changes that are needed to combat this domestic violence. When is enough going to be enough before the changes that are need to combat this domestic violence are with? But it seem that in Barbados things runs at two speeds — dead slow and stop — unless it’s a party.
For any human being to loose her life in such a manner is truly sad and brutal, and it needs to be addressed without delay. All that seem to be done is talk and more talk.
One thing is for sure, if no capital punishment is being handed down on those who take the lives of women, or anyone for that matter, in such a cold blooded manner, then it’s going to just continue because they know that they are going to be placed in prison, and don’t mind being placed in prison, eating and drinking at the taxpayers expense.
This isn’t going to cut it anymore. Like the book said: “An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.”
So if that man can take the life of a woman that easily without any remorse over his actions, then that person’s life should be taken also.
If you don’t start giving women equal rights in this 21st Century in Barbados, you are only modern in buildings, but old fashion in thinking.
To all you men out there: When a woman say no to you for whatever reason, or reasons, walk away. The life you take can never be replaced, and sorry isn’t going to cut it, because your actions weren’t sorry in the first place.
I have heard of men telling women, if “I can’t have you then no one else will”. Women aren’t yours to own, or to control. They are not an animals. The funny thing is some men seem to take more pride in their cars, bikes or even animals than their women.
Women are the most precious gifts that The Most High has given us as men. Treasure them, love them, respect them.
