  1. What is the cause of all these shootings? What is the root of the gangs? Is it for Marijuana and cocaine? Or is it for women?
    I wonder!!!!.

  2. If the government enact a livable wage the young men on the block would get a job in the private sector

  3. @ Leader, is your statement fact or fiction. This is really a sad situation, the way so many lives are being taken away. By the way, what is the homicide toll at present? I heard the PM in his address last week say 27 but this didn’t sound realistic. I stand corrected but after the blood bath in Vieux Fort it had gone up to 21 or 23.

  4. The carnage in St. lucia continues despite the presence of big numbers of police and soldiers from neighboring islands under the RSS. The foreign troops should be detaining and arresting suspects in large numbers across the island. Suspects and would be killers should be on the run from security forces with no time to shoot anyone. St. Lucia has a major problem and should declare a state of emergency until they get the murder spree under control.
