  1. What about the other Homicides in Vieux. Fort. This is a Clear case of FriendShip


  2. Twenty-three years old and going to do some time. What a wasted life!!

  3. Don’t waste the taxes payers money on his old stupid A$$ use the resources to interrogate him to see if he can give us some names of the other thugs running around in this country.

  4. I am sure that is is not only one person he has killed . I hope that the young men will go find a job when the government enacts a livable wage . A young wasted life that might get 20 yes to life imprisonment

  5. When the government enacts a livable wage…
    @Fire burn do you really think it’s because of the minimum wages this thugs are killing people?

  6. Well they rather work for the drug lords than to go and work for 2 to 5 EC dollars an hour but if the government enact a livable minimum wage I think that they will be motivated to go and do the odd jobs in the private sector

  7. Do you thing these guys will ever work for minimum wage when a whole month salary can’t buy them a pair of shoes they would rather sell their whole family to devil and face the consequences later so good luck with that?

  8. fire burn your comments FIRE BURN. you can pay them $50 to 100 an hour and there will still have evil minded ones who just feel that being a bad man will earn them respect

  9. This is so ridiculous, the young people have no respect for the old generation, the crimes in the islands need to be addressed, how many more people have to died because these thugs are fighting for neighborhoods , we are not America stop trying to be gangsters . The government need to bring in strickers gun laws , and stop babying these thugs.

  10. The law need to start hunting down these thugs the same that they are doing to people and so them no mercy, enough is enough stop playing and get off your all asses and make the islands thugs free again.
