  1. Don’t tell me – HE WILL BE BAILED OUT FOR $ X+Y – the story of that failed society should be made into a movie, named ‘ Pirates in Paradise ‘ Starring Idi Amin as main Character. That’s not one bit funny; blood is being spilled.
    The Spirits of death are laughing at us – some time back, a highly Educated, qualified and High ranking woman came to St. Lucia with a group of International Witches, with a political theme, ever since things in St. Lucia has not been the same – Some may laugh at those who Pray, but just imagine if none did Pray, you would be in a worse state. We are now at war, the war of good versus evil; don’t give in to evil; Our Almighty Father is watching and will answer in good time; be on the ‘Good Side’ my brothers and sisters, keep the faith. Amen.

  2. Don’t tell me – HE WILL BE BAILED OUT FOR $ X+Y – the story of that failed society should be made into a movie,

  3. The criminals ( lawyers and magistrates) who aid and abet these societal ills need to be disciplined as well. The whole system is designed wrongly-
    – you ran away from police = jail
    – you toss something in the bush, even though it is alleged-= more jail
    and now a laywer and magistrate will look to dismiss this case not based on facts but based on technicalities. Crazy system

  4. I had to erase 3/4 of my comments so as to get that little bit of the original to be printed; well I don’t know what’s going on at SLT.
    Sad that these stories are being read internationally, putting an ugly stain on the Paradise of the Caribbean; sorry most of all is that which I feared the most, your Tourist Industry; who is to employ the laid off masses? I’m still among the faithful ones living in hope. Amen.

  5. It took long for the acting prime minister to say something. Its a shame that no one from the Soufriere Representative Office can visit or even pick up the phone to call the family of the victims.

  6. …..ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha why would I get upset with lawyers or magistrates who give bails they are simply going by the guidelines of our laws as it currently stands. Until our laws are change or amended you are offered bail until you are tried and found guilty of a crime. There are no laws in St Lucia or the wider Caribbean that states if you are found with a firearm you must be held and denied bail only if you are fingered out for a crime and the ballistics of the firearm has your name written all over it. Thank your Massa Laws Lovers and those who continue to enforce these laws and their principles.

  7. I am happy that the Police arrested a killeri wonder how many people that he have killed from our 60 plus those cockroaches refuse to go and work for 2 to 3 EC dollars an hour working 12 to 16 hour shifts without over time
