A bus driver was shot dead Sunday night at Babonneau, crashing into a wall after sustaining gunshot injuries to the head, reports say.
According to the reports, the death occurred after 11:00 pm while police officers were investigating another shooting incident.
There are no further details at present.
Pierre is timid. It shows almost every day. He has a wonderful opportunity to end or slow down the gun carnage. Instead, he opts for a tactic (lengthy prison sentences), that is clearly missing biting, supplemental components. Pierre assumes that more people will be imprisoned, than those taking up arms. All the while releasing on bail, those who provide mentorship and stirring up the pot. As long as he continues to provide bail for illegal gun possession, he is making his job harder and longer to achieve.
Pierre doesn’t even know the number of tourists who have cancelled or change their minds about coming to violent St. Lucia. They may have read stories of violence while researching online. That number is not measurable. We can only guess. That’s potential revenue that went down the drain. Money badly needed by the state.
The one time I will put my hand to head for a murder, because he (the bus driver) was not one of those fellas. Man worked from sun up to midnight hustling on his bus, shuttle, transfers, short trips, round the island bus for hire, awah. Young man always working, no sleep. What could possibly be a reason to take out someone like him?
This is Really Foolishness to kill a Young man for no reason at all
I Hope the Police arrest all Those involved in that Senseless Murder
Per capita, Saint Lucia is one of the most murderous nations in the entire word! If this tragic statistic doesn’t awaken the conscience of our people –and spur us on to personal and collective commitment to change, this nation will bleed to death before the eyes of us all!
A couple months ago Pierre gladly accepted the job as Chairmanship of the Council for National Security and Law enforcement, previously held by Dr. Horace Chang.
Of all the Prime Ministers of bigger, more populated, richer, better experienced in this matter, perhaps none wanted the job, but it sounds good and adds to PiPs’ resume. It is a joke for a time such as this in St. Lucia, the one holding this title is unable to do what is required of him. St. Lici slowly but surely sinking into Haitian style govenance.
What on earth did he do to anybody? Fella was so cool.
All the comments on here sadly won’t change a thing. There needs to be a mass protest against this senseless violence to get government to get a move on. Not just a handful of people waving placards, I’m talking every man, woman and the dog need to be on streets in protest. Only then I believe we will see a change.
My word, what ever is happening to our beautiful, peaceful country. Some don’t like to hear it and chastise people who say it but I’m beginning to wonder whether all that bloodshed is not payback for evil deeds. I have read it in previous comments and have heard it in many quarters. Was there any evil or demonic deals during the election? Is our blood flowing as payback? Just asking for a friend but curious to know myself.
Imagine am reading a comment that we the people need to protest to get the govt to do something. SMH. In a few weeks you will hear boasting about their achievements in their constituencies and ministries and many of u all will be clapping for them. They will spend millions to try tune us against Guy and Chas and have made these 2 guys their enemies. In the meantime crime and gun violence is plaguing this country. They will soon tell you that How much they are putting the people first. I more think is 1st to get shot at or shot in the head or 1st to be robbed.
Pierr has no sense of direction really really thought we were doing good but putting this politican in power it’s clear to see he doesn’t care bout what’s happening his hands just tied up I think our nation suppose to be able to see that and people like that we should have the power to have them step down even before election cuz this country is getting out of control!!
MR PIERRE YOU ARE FAILING IN NATIONAL SECURITY PUT YOUR PRIDE ASIDE AND HAND THE JOB OVER TO CAPABLE CRIME HANDLERS. YOU HAVE EX TOP COPS WHO HAVE HAD TRAINING FROM THE US AND FBI AND VARIOUS CRIME FIGHTING AGENCIES. SET UP A NATIONAL SECURITY TASK FORCE AND GET TO WORK. WHAT IS THE POINT OF SPENDING MONEY ON OVERSEAS EMBASSIES WHEN OUR CRIME RATE WILL DETER PEOPLE FROM COMING. GET YOUR PRIORITIES RIGHT MR PM. PUT US FIRST BY KEEPING US SAFE !
365 days a year. at the rate we going st Lucia is on its way to being the most murderous country in the world, if its not there already. London has 9.5 million people, almost 10 million and they barely reach 100 murders per year. St Lucia has 180,000 people and they pass that figure per year. New York has over 8 million people and homicide is about 400. If that does not tell you that St Lucia is already a failed state , nothing will. The fish rots from the head. This is the price we pay for those we elect in office with no regard for his or her character. Shit hole country run by black men failures!
I’ve been here visiting for 4 weeks from the US. We have this same problem of gun violence, mostly young men with no hope. Goverments don’t care, tbey line their pockets with the money that should be used for more education and security in neighborhoods. All good people of the world need to rise up against this, but they (at least in the US) are too busy loving themselves and taki g selfies for social media. Just love your neighbors and help them when you can. We are all the same, white, black, or inbetween, we want to be safe and happy with a full belly and warm bed at night. The Earth has enough for us all.
