  1. Meme no there isn’t a season for drowning, likewise there is no season for low IQ people like you. Stay off the internet if you cannot make a useful comment. Bayteez!

  2. Was this man really homeless, does anyone know or was he just doing drugs or mentally unwell? I understood from persons in Gros Islet, that he did have a daughter who would feed him and give him money. I will always remember him as the one who refused to take anything less than $5 from people.

  3. @question is that the fat black type of man that seemed a bit Indian and he was very fat and black and refused to bath and would stand under the shantee opposite the gros islet gap?

  4. @g.w, yes the big, dark skinned and unkempt man who was most likely not of sound mind.

  5. This man ask me for $10 once…I was shocked!…I was used to them asking for $1 lol
    But RIP to him 🕊
