    The lash has always been the answer from the days of slavery right on.
    There was one lad who from the time he entered class until 3 PM got beaten by teachers.
    Perhaps it worked on slaves, if they were slackening, the lashes upped the work rate. It also worked on donkeys so humans were no different perhaps.
    Yours truly was moved up from Infants B to Standard 2 and was beaten repeatedly until they put me back in Standard 1.
    If a kid couldn’t answer a question or got a sum wrong the lashes were supposed to be a required learning aid.

    Some years ago on Tudor Street there was a bus driver off duty saying how he had beaten up his woman the night before – I told my friend there must be some Barbados badge of honour or bravery that could be bestowed on him – He beat up a woman and was proud of it.

    Disgusting, demeaning, immoral, callous, low depraved, heartless and bestial behaviour by all the above, though I may mistakenly have besmirched the name of beasts.
    I thought that was a thing of the past but it seems ingrained.

    David;
    Without knowing anything about the background and whereabouts of this action, I wonder if anyone else got the impression that it was staged to some extent. The blows seemed held back somehow in the manner of a professional wrestler beating up on another one with a chair.

    But having said that, and recognizing that my first impression is unlikely to be correct, it was truly horrible and different to the Buhbadus that I grew up in where a guardian would never beat a child (no matter what she had done) on a public road with a big piece of wood (looks like a light 2 by 3 to me) like that one. Such public beating would have been with a strap.

    We’ve come a long ways, in the wrong direction.

    Sid Boyce; Talking about public beatings and slavery. AFAIK there was never caribbean type slavery in Ghana, Africa. Yet I observed a standard practice of black men with whips beating youngsters who were trying to sell little trinkets to tourists (mostly black tourists) in tourist areas of Ghana. The beating was really ineffectual as the youngsters all avoided the whips easily but I had a culture shock when first observing it.

    Perhaps I should hasten to explain that the attempted whippings were the only negative behavioural oddities I noticed in Ghana. Those people were perhaps the nicest ones I’ve met in Africa. reminded me of Bajans in looks and temperament.

    This sort of physical violence should not come as a surprise to most bajans;It permeates the whole of the society ; it is to be found in the schools ; the courts; the religious institutions; the social classes; ; you name it there are few in that so called godfaring country who will find anything wrong with the state hanging; who do not literally believe in that rather out dated biblical saying spare not the child; Few bajans refuse to take responsibility for any of their faults. It is all left to the the good lord, whoever or wherever he/she/it may be
    That woman and those looking on would probably argue that this is what the lord wish them to do. So that when next they appear in the church, all they have to do is pray and ask god to forgive their sinning wys and all will be well again.
    The starting point for ending this kind of national violence and uncaring
    attitude must begin with asking all persons and institutions to take
    personal responsbility for their misdeeds and seek to do some thing practical and meaningful about it.
    Leaving it entirely to god , the church , the penal institutions will only breed
    more violence.
    we should start by banning all forms of corporal punishment in all our schools.
    Making it an offence to abuse our women and reintroduce the spirit of friendly neighbourliness and replacing the worship of material wealth with more humility and concern for all members of our society whatever their statioin in life.

    The mother goes from bad to worse by the statements she gave to the Nation newspaper. She says she beat her 16 year with a cricket bad and break he up. She also says she does break up she 18 year old.

    This is a crime, pure and simple and the police need to carry out and investigation, arrest and charge her and bring her before a Magistrate to answer for these criminal acts.

    At the end of the video it is clear the mother is attempting to choke the child by putting her knee and body weight in the child neck. This is NOT the actions of a mother, the woman is an animal and society, including her children need protection from her.

    It is sad that in 2013, this act can be considered an acceptable way to discipline a child. Look how many just stood around to watch the incident and took the time to record it. Then the mother supports her actions by proudly stating that she beats her 16 and 18 year old sons. When those boys turn around and beat someone else (woman, man, or child) we ask “how the youth get so?” I hope the journalists that have covered this story will cover the followup stories of how these children have turned out! When you post something like this on the internet, the entire world has the opportunity to form an opinion on Barbados society.It is time for this nonsense to end. People, think. You have done that child, several other abused children, and this country a serious injustice.

    The ancestors of nearly all black Barbadians were brought here from Ghana known then as the Gold Coast. Because of little miscegenation except with the ugly British most black Bajans has retained their Ghanian DNA in physiology and attitude.

    The British combed the Gold Coast while the French combed the Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire) including Senegal to supply the plantations in the Caribbean & Americas.

    The Child care board needs to be brought into this. If the mother also beats her 18 yr old daughter like this, she and they need help.

    Wonder if the mother regularly beats her girl children in public? Note that the daughter doesnt seem to have been as severely injured as would have been suggested by the horrific video images.

    Still wonder if the whole thing wasn’t staged to some extent

    “Uh gine roast yuh ass in licks right in de front road fuh all yuh frens and dah good fuh nutting boy to see. Yuh gine see hoo god yuh serving” or words to that effect”.

    I think the mother was playing to the onlookers, one of whom was some distance away and used a fairly good camera to record the action. The video was taken using a very good cell phone or a real digital camera.

    “This is a crime, pure and simple and the police need to carry out and investigation, arrest and charge her and bring her before a Magistrate to answer for these criminal acts.”

    What evidence would be used to justify police action? A video on Youtube?
    The alleged victim seen in the video must make a complaint or any of the witnesses to this awfully violent show of societal and family dysfunction.

    If the girl suffered serious injuries and had to seek medical assistance then the onus would be on the medical authorities to summon the police to make further investigation into the cause of such physical harm to a minor (if she is under 16 years).
    The Magistrate Faith Marshall-Harris should tell us if the courts allow such video evidences posted on the Internet as admissible in our backward Victorian judicial system where hanging and whipping by the cat o’nine tails was an institutionlised form of punishment.
    But why are we so shocked by this sort of violence perpetrated by the descendants of slaves. This sort of horrific violence against “disobedient and wayward” slaves was par for the course in slave days with Barbados known throughout the world as the perfect plantation system underpinned by a regime of brutality with the express backing of the Church. Ask Lynch of the Virginias who might have had relatives in the Barbadoes who could have helped him with his Christian interpretation of discipline and promoted that patented ultimate form of violent cruelty against the local blacks.

    These violent and inhumane characteristics have continued down the ages are now embedded in our social DNA and gladly supported by the Church as methods of discipline ordained by their god of love.
    “And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money [property].”Exodus 21:20-21

    @ Disgusted…. I agree this violence permeates all of society. I grew up with a violent alcoholic father who battered our mother with cutlasses, fists and broomsticks. We were considered “upper middle class” living among judges, lawyers and doctors. I swore that one day he would be the recipient of those beatings.

    One evening forty years ago, he attempted to hit my mother, she had moved into the guest room and was not speaking to him. He broke down the door and started going towards her. I was seventeen years old and I had seen and had enough of this and knew what was going to happen. I picked up the nearest thing I could find, a dining room chair and broke it over his head and shouted for my brothers and sisters to get their hockey sticks. There were eight of us. We surrounded him and when he attempted to hit me someone brought down a hockey stick on his head. When he attempted to hit that person I brought down the hockey stick on his head. After getting several blows with hockey sticks with a blood streaming from his head, he gave in and told us to finish kill him. I told him that we didn’t want to kill him we wanted him out of our lives. He told me to leave his house and I left. The rest of the family spent the night with friends. I left the family home and didn’t speak to my father for several years, and he NEVER tried hitting our mother again.

    I came to the conclusion that after all he was my father and had been misguided by alcohol all his life. He had stopped drinking by then and was separated from our mother so I began speaking to him. My mother is now in her early eighties and my father died when he had just turned 66 some 17 or 18 years ago.

    I swore I will NEVER let ANY MAN do that to me. My ex husband once slapped me and ended up at the doctor with stitches on his ear just above the temple. He swore he would NEVER forget that day and I told him that he should file that away for the future references whenever he tries to hit a woman.

    That mother in the video is a beast and should be brought before the courts for assault and child cruelty.

    Do you have ANY idea of the challenges involved in raising teenagers on the blocks in these days of drugs, sex and bling?

    Would you think more of the mother if she just did nothing and let the children do as they like…?
    What would you think of her when her sons ends up on the front pages for mugging some old woman? …..or the daughter ends up with 9 children from 7 men and all on welfare?

    Does she look able to engage the services of a psychiatrist to help her to address the challenges of raising a precocious sexy teenager in the ghetto? ….or to sit and reason with them herself?
    Do you have teenage children? ….even the ones at the expensive private schools are major challenges….

    So it seems that the woman has resorted to the only option available to her to assert some parental control….cut the children asses…

The mother has claimed that she approached almost every institution for help in controlling her daughter and putting her on the right path. Apparently the public beating worked. The Daughter appears to be properly chastened.

    The public beating was barbaric, shocking, horrendous and all the things that posters here have pointed to. It is something that no one should emulate with their charges but it appears to have worked. perhaps that is the major lesson from this incident.

The battle I had with my father was never a teenager vs parental control. It was years of seeing my mother being abused by a bully who controlled his spouse from the time she was seventeen years old. Do you know how helplessness a child feels when it witnesses spousal abuse? Do you know the fear that child feels when a quarrel erupts between the adults? Have you experienced the fear deep within when the head of the household comes home drunk and looking for a fight?
    There is no excuse for that type of abuse that woman did to her daughter.

    How does this get to be a race matter or slavery issue. Bajan really like to make nuff excuses rather than squarely address the core issue.

    This is criminal conduct and the mother in this video is not doing it based on race or Barbados’ history of slavery. In my opinion it stems from probably her (mother) ignorance (in the true sense) and also because she has no regard for the law.

    She must be brough to justice for her actions.

    So Bushie she should kill her daughter in the process? What she did could have resulted in serious injury. In my case, we were defending our mother from our abusive father.

    The girl don’t appear to have died IG. …and her mother may have been protecting her from herself….
    LOL
    In any case, who better to kill she? …if not she mudda? Perhaps mothers should have that exclusive right (dem bring you into the world so why dem can’t take you out….? :) )

    Take people like Onions and ac….LOL…
    If this was the case their mothers could have made the world a better place a long time ago…

    Anyway, Bushie dun wid dat…. Don’t have the facts!

    the mother is going to live to regret this action, I thought it was massive abuse, it just shows the progress we black mothers have made in 2013, maybe the mother was treated like that by her parents so thats all she knows. The poor child will one day either treat her kids like that, or never want to lay a hand on her kids, but in the end the mother will one day regret the abuse she laid on the child, and the embarrassment she put that child through, and where is the child care board, or a government office where kids can call to protect them against these crazy parents.

    when the child grow up and hate her mother, the stuipid mother should not be surprise, and pulling the girl’s hair out will give her brain damage, so how do the mother expect the girl to behave, she is a teenager, let the girl enjoy her life, the mother must be jealous she is not young and cute anymore, and all those adults standing around and none of them couldnt stop the woman from killing the girl. Write this in your dairy my dear child, and one day, spew it back in your mother’s face, she is a devil and she needs psychiatric help.

    the actions of the mother and many parents today especially in the carribbean countries and africa, is related to slavery because its handed down, the mother got treated like that by her mother or father, and therefore she thinks that’s how she should act in chastising her child, so its a part of our slavery history. Then a few days after she is smiling with the same daughter, just a matter of time before she do it again. The girl is going to hate her guts and leave her when she gets older.

    It’s good to get more angles to a story, even though it may not change your opinion. Two other items of the same situation:

    @onions
    I was waiting to see how long it tek u to resurrect the Crop Over picture. lol.

    Bushie, your logic too black and white for some. It makes perfects sense until you blend in the “grey” that we have allowed ourselves to be so guided and confused by nowadays. If more parents had “control” then we wouldn’t be having lots of the issues we do as we speak.

    Granted though, by today’s standards it is a clear sign of abuse. Justified? warranted? needed? merited? who knows? but those are other questions for other places.

    Love the loyalty of the daughter in the paper though. unbelievable…

    …If the cap fits we can be sure that Old Onions and ac would be rushing to wear um.
    If Dat woman was Onions mudda there is no way he would have turned out so warped… A couple dozen cut aXXEs every month and PERHAPS she could have made something of the useless onion bag…

    Listen nanci
    Many upstanding citizens who LOVE and HONOUR their mothers got their tails cut with all sorts of things back in the old days… ….including hard-ears Bushie. What hate what mother what…?

    If you want to see children who HATE their parents check out the USA where there is NO cut tails or even harsh words….
    …where children kill their parents, siblings AND a whole junior school for some frivolous reason or another…

    “Spare the rod and spoil the child”
    …..but words of wisdom are nonsense to a fool (in this case to TWO of them :) ) right Onions and ac?

    Mind you (as Caswell is won’t to say), Bushie successfully raised all his many children without EVER hitting one of them….
    .admittedly, when the first fellow was 13 the Bushman took him for a drive down North and showed him a “document” which specified that being the one responsible for him coming into the world, his dad held the exclusive right to terminate him if dad ever felt so inclined.
    A brief but very graphic demonstration of how this would be executed then followed…. (wunna ever visit those blow holes down by St Lucy…?)

    That boy turned out to be a perfect gentleman – who only ever needed the slightest look to behave himself….
    ….and he obviously clued his other younger siblings into the situation. :)

    …it was only recently when he requested a copy of the “document” to show his teenage daughter that we had cause to discuss that drive down north many years ago….
    ….can’t imagine why he would want to show such a document to that little Angel…. :)

    David (not BU) ……if we minded our own business there will be no BU. Because you are a parent hat doesn’t mean that you have the right to abuse your children.
