  1. What do you have to say now Mr PM. The gun violence is in your backyard. Will you declare Marchard a hightened crime zone.

  2. With immediate effect I have now declared the whole of Saint Lucia an escalated crime area – because it truly is.

  3. My only fear is passing Marchand and having to stop on those speed bumps by the garage there. That place is too close to the Boulevard for me to stop. If bullets flying how i speeding off. Those who feel it’s only Vfort forgot that Marchand has had the same style of Leadership. Protect the Voters not the people. If it’s a supporter that was apprehended he will be out soon. He might even get a government contract to help pay his charges. Just saying. Don’t come for me, but stay and think. 2 communities headed by the same ppl for 20+ years are both gang and crime hot beds for the past 20 years. It’s No Coincidence.

  4. How are the guns getting into St Lucia in the first place. St Lucia Doesn’t manufacture guns!

  5. @ sad but true – I agree with you. I hate to say this – the folks in St. Lucia are promoting Jazz. I really hope and pray that you Lucians are VERY well equipped with adequate security to take care of all the folk you are inviting.
