  1. The police Should carry out Further investigation into this incident for more information

  2. Judge for your selves – ain’t that the result of one, be he a Juvenile or not, the result of magistrates being too soft on criminals charged with possession of deadly weapons? this punk might have been one at the juvenile detention Centre, but being at some ‘Trade School’ or at work, he prefers that his trade is ‘holding up someone or killing to rob you of possession’. How nice, Miss Mary? (keep informing the Police of these suspects) May God have mercy on St. Lucia.

  3. that feb mate will be out on bail just last week another juvenile was arrested for the same offence and where is he now? out on bail

  4. Imagine the whole of saint lucia except magistrates seeing this fundamental problem with the legal system…democracy sucks!

  5. Well all I can say our magistrate went to bamboo law school and the king pins using the kids to foster there criminal agenda while the law remains an ASS.

  6. Hope police are trying to trace the source of the guns while he is custody.

  7. What is this? Where are these kids parents and who exactly is leading the blind? Is there anyone who will accept any type of responsibility here? Are we heading into a the no return zone with no one bold enough to step up to the table to say we need to do something drastic or else we are gonna lose those young kids and the future generation.
    How does one kido have such access to this much ammo and guns. Is it so easy to get one that soon enough he will open up a shop and start selling online also.
