  1. Your bail protocols need to be revisited – why – because they allow criminals back on the street to easily. If they are drug/gun dealers – cash comes by very easily and that needs to be taken into consideration when granted bail. St. Lucia laws are sometimes ???????????

  2. Opium, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl panadol, paracetamol, LSD, marijuana, morphine chemotherapy bay leaf, drugs drugs drugs…

  3. @jay. The system created by many disjointed and myopic people has brought us to this point. Hardly anyone seems proactive. Let’s examine the illegal firearm haven that is called St. Lucia.

    Twenty years ago, anyone with even half a brain, would conclude that we would have arrived in this very unsafe condition if we did nothing. Well, we did nothing. In fairness we did a tiny bit. The ineffectual Lacorbs jolted awoke during his slumber, passed an anti-gang legislation thingy and promptly went back to sleep. His successor was a complete waste…not even good enough to call manure. As the mafia would say. “forget about it.”

    Presently, we are on the cusp of new legislation coming into effect by way of the “Firearms Act.” Already, it starts out with serious deficiencies. There is a clause that allows a fine for one caught in possession of an illegal firearm. I believe the fine is in the vicinity of $30,000. Any Simpleton knows that this is play money for a drug dealer who is worth his salt. Also, St Lucia Uber rich can pay this off easily. Is the legislation making a loophole for them? If is revenue that legislators are desperately seeking, they are blind to the social and medical costs of letting a dealer pay a fine. I could guarantee that cost is beyond $30,000. By the way what about the message of zero tolerance for illegal firearms?

    Great will be the day when there is no bail for firearms charges. Greater will be the day when magistrates/judges are not given leeway during sentencing… I am talking mandatory sentencing. Then we will start to recover from this nightmare.

  4. Its really a Disgrace arresting and Charging persons for Illegal Firearms and Ammunition .The police loosing their Sleep to Arrest Criminals and less than 24Hours they are Back on the Streets .The Ministers of the Shitstem Responsible not saying a word.F&&&&&y

  5. If the police is doing a great job lets support them in the fight to stop these hooligans from destroying out communities and societies. These people are menace to our livelihood and put fear into the weak souls. Lets go police hunt them out!

  6. Next time write an article in the news paper. That’s to long for people to read. That’s why it’s called a comment! Hello!!

  7. This bail system is really demotivating to the police. Imagine doing your investigation for months. Finding your perp. Finally busting that perp. Only to see these criminals laugh at the legal system.

  8. When will the Anse La Raye police arrest Bogar’s son for killing Changoo at Jacmel? If nothing can be done, we at Jacmel want all the Anse La Raye police to resign with immediate effect.
