  1. What benefit to anyone to have the Inspectors’ photo instead of the criminals’ photo shown? the criminal activity in St. Lucia and in Castries in particular is not only bad news for the tourist Industry but its very bad taste for the youth as an example to defuse conflict. The lac of a Church life in St. Lucia has cause irreparable harm to the young folks of the Island; how can that be mended? I think the Preachers and so called Priests should come down from the pulpit, go to the Street Corners, the highways and byways and reading out from the good book, preach the word of the Almighty and save some souls for what is shortly to come. To be blunt, WW111 is right around the corner. Are you saved?

  2. An old 46 year old man and still committing black on black crime! Another useless black man!

  3. He will Face the Courts and Be Remanded at Bordelais Corectional Facility For a Very Long time

  4. From Last year to this present Date too many Unsolved Homicides in St .Lucia and No one in Authority saying a word about it

  5. The inspector rather place his mugshot than that of charged individual. These little details aid criminality cause the charged man firstly has NO NAME and NO FACE…protecting him from public scrutiny. BigPappyshow

  6. Yes
    That’s a little bit stupid to place his photo instead of the criminal photo. What was he thinking. The publisher or the reporter should not have done it.

  7. Can’t believe some of these old men in their 40’s and 50’s are still on the streets committing crime. Embarrassing to the see these guys acting and dressing like they’re still in their easy twenties. That’s what a lack of ambition gets you at the end of the day.
