  1. Madam or Mr. Magistrate please don’t give a slap on the hands and ask him to go. We want to hear the maximum place on him for others to learn the lesson.
    By the way what’s abouts the other firearm cases all you have adjourned? We want to hear the outcome of these cases.

  2. We, as in the criminal system is a waste of time. I firmly believe lawyers judges magistrates and politicians all benefit from illegal gun trade…that is why it will thrive. Them men eh want to squeeze their own pockets.

  3. Is he out on bail yet? What’s the flipping delay? He has important scores to settle and dirt to do.

    People led by donkeys.

  4. What the hell the man doin , strutting around Castries with 17 rounds illegal firearm, that could have been massive, major damage, well done officers. Madame Commisioner crack it down, loitering,undisciplined youths, after school or on weekends should be doing something productive for their futures, family’s and communities instead of loitering without purpose, regard or thought! Too many recent murders and rapes in Gros Islet St Lucia, so many not even being reported on the News as too not scare tourists away even more…check yourselves tourists. smph….crack it down officers even more…. Bc this sheet is ridiculous, and out of control,start talking people, give up these mfukers…..woiii

  5. The Magestrates and Lawyers make the Police look Bad at the Courts .That’s So Embarrassing to the Judiciary Shitstem in St.Lucia

  6. Their should have no bail for illegal firearms point blank and period, an investigation should be done on this firearm to Much unsolved murders need law and order in this country

  7. Y’all can beat y’all behinds all y’all want…I know for sure those guys rather be judge by twelve than to be carried by six… far as i see this guy had an illegal fully loaded weapon to defend his own life as the evidence shows he never fired one shot…afterall y’all know how tings gwan in likkle st.lucia,the police never there when the enemy come snuff your life away.
