Finger-rape story sparks reader fury against Barbados "THE story of a Jamaican woman who was allegedly finger-raped by an immigration officer before being thrown out of Barbados on March 14, 2011, has sparked the fury of readers, perhaps betraying deep-seated animosity among Caribbean islanders. Here are some of the comments the Jamaica Observer received online:

Manuel Sata: This is an outrage and very shameful. The Jamaican government has many tools at its disposal to retaliate against Barbados yet it is seemingly polite about this travesty. Sadly, this is not an isolated incident and requires a strong response. Jamaicans, if little Barbados can treat some of us like that, you retaliate by not vacationing there, don't buy goods made in Barbados and boycott Bajan-owned companies in Jamaica. Support Jamaican-owned enterprises. Jamaicans, you have power. Use it!!!
