  1. Once again, let me continue to say the marijuana snd cocaine are killing the nation. Its time for the banan, france and larry to hsve their followers to stop what’s happening.

  2. those who dont want to hear about God but now you calling on politicians for an answer ? how sad

  3. Listen to them Kenny , PJP, still missing the point and can’t understand this is bigger than both of them Oh well. More reprisals to come that’s what I said and taddaaaa. News flash for some of you who are still in denial I have news for you there will be more before the weekend over and into next week too so save you energy. For those who need to learn the art of investigative reporting they need to hit the streets or spend some time in a barber shop or bar in VF this has nothing to with red or yellow.

  4. As of now, there are more than 2 ppl dead in the Vieux Fort as a result of gun violence. This news article will need more updating before midnight.

  5. There are unofficially 4 people dead in the ongoing gang feud.

  6. They refuse to enact a minimum wage . How can you have over 80 percent of your people working for 3 to 5 EC dollars an hour . When can that do for a man ,woman or a family . The system and the 2 political parties have failed the people…

  7. SLTN all this excessive adds now is making the page slow and very tedious to get to the story. Not saying not to make your money but the adds are taking over

  8. It appears that the dishonourable one has te inside tract of what’s happening on the ground, and much as I would like, a supposed honourable Police to be given all that knowledge and information, I doubt that they would do anything about it. What a state of affairs with St. Lucia; who pays, who suffers? who is maimed for life; whose children must be deprived of a proper education? so this is the sad story of St. Lucia under this Government – St. Lucia is done, its all over – before the next elections, your Tourist industry will be a thing of the past. Your sister nations from the Leeward down to the Windwards will be laughing at you. St. Lucia has become the laughing stock of all the Islands, thanks to a government with friends with international Witches, Haitian Voodoo, obeah, Secret Societies, anything but the ‘Holiness of th Almighty & the Holy Spirit & Jesus the Son.’

  9. @THE FOX. If you don’t have nothing sensible to type then don’t type at all. If Flambeaux was in power they wouldn’t be able to do a damn thing about it either. Politrickians on both sides need to learn to stop politicising crime. End of story. That’s why the country in a mess. Red and Yellow alone you’ll seeing.
