Are Barbados Police thinking like Hosni Mubarak during “Arab Spring” or David Cameron in London Riots? Serious lashes on Social Media…

The cyber-group known as Anonymous was ready to take on NATO; Mubarak wanted to close Egypt’s Internet while a member of David Cameron’s Cabinet wanted London to have no Tweets nor RIM devices not so long ago when riots loomed heavy…

What Commissioner Dottin fails to realise is if he embraces Social Media, then when Bertie Hinds was about to allow Dancehall artistes to hold Concerts, then Dottin could have aced it with a Tweet or a Facebook Status message without cutting his vacation short as he did at the time... (APOCRYPHAL) "@Bertie-RBPF If you let Mavado/Rolex or whoever get to National Stadium, your job will become a Vacancy faster than you can say 'COLORING BOOK' Contact me via Inbox ASAP! #vybzkartel #onthejobstress #police #barbados"

In Barbados, Commissioner Darwin Dottin made a serious allegation that elements of Social Media are seeking to destroy Society As We Know It – however, in stating where his finger was pointing at he stopped short!

While Government recently took steps to be more responsible with ICT and legislation, can it reach a stage which would not be unfamiliar to China, Venezuela or Zimbabwe? Watch the video and make your own assessment!

  1. Very good research! Like how you edit the talks, thanks for sharing!

  2. I believe Dottin meant you and how you probe him at Tapas, as far as myself concern. When you do what the papers won’t do, will that cause certain people to hate your site? Love the braveness, but tread carefully, these folk have their own agendas hear?
