About 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13, 2023, officers attached to the Community Relations Branch, Castries recovered a .380 pistol from a fifteen (15) year old male student.
Officers were summoned to a Secondary School within Castries, where a search of the male and his property was conducted.
Following the discovery, he was arrested and has been charged by officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department, for unlawful Possession of Firearm.
15 years old and you have a gun in a school? boy you see if i was your parent paying money for school in them hard times there you would not have a face after that
Some of these young people are bent on causing destruction to themselves, their school and their community as a whole. They do not have any desire to do good and stay away from trouble. I am happy an arrest was made before imminent danger prevailed.
The time has come for St. Lucia to incorporate metal detectors sooner than later. For such a small island -it’s really too much.
In addition some students do have any desire to learn – they want to be gang bangers.
He should be publicly Flogged!!! Make an example out of him so the rest can learn,we cannot be giving these petty punishments & the criminals go on to be repeat offenders,make an example out of this individual on the square for all to see…If that gun was used & he confesses to using it then chop off his hand.Examples need to be made.
His mother will say he was such a good boy, not in any gang.
He has to get the same kind of bail the adults are getting for firearms. $30 thousand dollars.
@Valentines Day Massacre right after you. You are charged and found GUILTY of crimes against the state, of which you aid and abet in spreading misinformation and promoting the fiscal mismanagement of state funds by the now defunct opposition leader Allen Chastanet. You were a fierce advocate of the UWP plans as it pertains to a new wing at St Jude’s Hospital, when they clearly had USD$30 million at their disposal to finish this project in a timely manner to provide much needed and proper healthcare to the citizens of the south. Such malicious behavior and advocacy have brought on delays that has cause great hardship to a people; many had to endured substandard life changing services. For this you are to receive 20 latches from a cat o’ nine and 600hrs of community service to be severed in the town of Vieux-Fort. In addition, letters of apologies must be written to The Most Honorable Kenny Davis Anthony (1000 letters double space), The Most Honorable Phillip J Pierre, The Most Honorable Lucian Highgrade, The Most Honorable Richard Fredricks, The Most Honorable Dr. Earnest Hilaire, The Most Honorable Stephenson King, and The Most Honorable Alva Baptise.
Many serious issues happen at schools across the island that don’t see the light of day. Thankfully, this situation did not turn into a tragedy. The state of our country can be directly linked to the quality of our education system. Our ministry of education, under both administrations have failed the citizens of this country. The current crew is concerned with fete, lime and travel. These issues will continue.
