  1. Good job, was waiting for that for a long time at Bois Den. We want to know their names.

  2. Please, please, please – I know that everyone is entitled to due process. However, if you were able to obtain the illegal firearms etc. etc. etc. and drugs on their person with intent to sell-you have a strong case against them. Honorable Judge, Lawyers etc. — please please please for the sake of peace and innocent bloodshed in St. Lucia. Lock them up and prevent them for going back out to re-group and re-strategize to make matters worst – just saying and praying for St. Lucia.

  3. They will be back òn the street before you know it to conduct business as usual, and we wonder why there’s so much crime in the country

  4. Yawn! Yawn! (again). They will be redirected back to the streets once they have posted bail. They will promptly rearm and continue as if nothing happened.

    Sooner than later, a wise man will ponder why he can’t seem to put a dent in crime. Hereby, proclaiming the situation an everlasting mystery.
