W.I. News Roundup

In Caribbean news on September 10, 2008 at 2:28 am

There’s a lot of crazy ish happening in the Caribbean. I trolled the West Indian Times for the latest news and much of what I found was depressing.  A succession of hurricanes are pounding the region. Bahamas and Haiti have taken quite the beating. Hurricane season doesn’t officially end until November.  Eek!  A police officer fatally shot a pastor in Trinidad and Tobago. The headline read “Police Kills Pastor in Love Triangle Gone Wrong”.  The pastor was sitting in the front seat of a parked car with the police officer’s girlfriend.  She was also a cop.  It’s unclear whether the woman was wounded in the shooting.  Scooting over to St. Lucia…nurses there walked off their job for several hours after an armed man attacked them. The staff felt nothing was done to tighten hospital security. I can’t say I blame them.  I would have high tailed outta there too.  Jamaica wants to dole out some $4.5 million U.S. dollars to keep American Airlines from cutting flights to the country. Yup, it’s all sun shine news in the West Indies.  – MJ
