  1. Another act of criminality in the heart of Castries while the Chief Security in vacationing. Who will bell the Cat? Certainly not this woman. Call back Frances. She has balls.

  2. Here we go again crime is taking over the island . I pray to God that it does not get like Haiti..

  3. Boyce, please tell me how the PM or the comm. of Police could prevent you from stabbing someone standing next to you if that person disrespect you or if you have been looking for that person for sometime, with the intention of stabbing him or her.

    UWP hacks you all lost the elections accept that and move on.

    Let us encourage people especially the young ones to accept responsibility for their actions and not the positions.

  4. Gone are the days when you could run chat with someone and walk away. Everyone wants to prove that they are better through violent acts.

  5. The police need to start profiling these suspects and searching them at random in Castries. If you look a certain way , dress a certain way. We are going to stop and search you. That should be the new policy.

  6. Any new intervention must inconvenience every single lucian…..random search every suspect looking individual in town. We need a shake up! I dont mind being shaken up cause have nothing to hide. Rslpf..I wish you all the best with the limited resources. Politicans and lawyers need to investigated as i do think they benefit too much from crime.

  7. I hate to say this ..but if this level of crime, killing, robbery and violence continues in St. Lucia, all your marketing advertisements both local and abroad for increase in tourism will be for naught.
    Tourist will be advised not to travel to St. Lucia ..I am not certain that the government understands the impact this level of crime could have on the economy.
    The recent incident with the tourist have already reached the US, Canada, UK etc etc etc
    Your very economy depends on tourism…praying

  8. St. Lucia is on life support right now…and I hate to say this but its pulse is getting weaker by the minute. too much corruption going on and lack of accountability. if y’all think this crime business and corruption is not being noted by millions from around the world think again. the age of technology is here to stay. information is traveling at the speed of light right now. y’all economy is going to hell in a had basket. y”all need to step on the breaks as of yesterday…good luck this one. this is so sad for such a beautiful island with so much potential. wow
