  1. bravo bravo to.the rspf. if he was shot and killed his family would be on tv asking for justice because he was a good boy.

  2. what about the o e from gros islet that was arrested for the illegal firearm he had in his vehicle his father is a police officer. that one will not make it on the news ? why

  3. Why his picture is not showing after he is charged ?He may have commented other crimes and can be identified by other victims. I think that is a way to have solving crimes in this country. The time is riped for showing their photos.

  4. @ BB and John John- That’s a fundamental flaw that we all know of which the law makers refuse to fix! They will say he is under age as if we innocent people only get killed by adults! The system is designed to ensure crime prevails. It is designed to shame victims and protect the identity of criminals as long as possible.
