  1. Is it because of the drug trade we have so many shootings and killings in St. Lucia?
    The gentleman from Trinidad but residing in St. Lucia is always defending marijuana. do you believe that is not correct? The penalty for drugs should be stiffer.

  2. We need more legal firearms in law abiding citizens hands, sad to hear about this incident .

  3. Give them bail when they are caught. That’s definitely the underpinning of attrition. I can recognize a brilliance when I see it.

  4. Don’t kid yourself, there are those in the Government who know who’s who, what to do, the gang leaders, crime bosses, distributers etc etc. It is strange how quickly some find the great sums of money for Bail – and why should anyone be allowed Bail for this kind of criminality? then you want to know why St. Lucia has become this way.
