  1. HOT PEHHH. Btw Doesn’t that mean the lady commissioner has to return. At all cost protect the carnival.

  2. I am hoping that the CSA and law abiding citizens take the police and by extension the government to task on this. We are being overrun by mindless criminals. We don’t need sympathy from politicians.
    Politicians have set the tone for getting duty free vehicles at any cost. It’s only naturally the criminals follow suite

  3. Why should police officers be deprived of their leave to accommodate persons having fun?

  4. I try so hard to be nice, but sometimes there’s nothing nice to say. It’s up to over 10 people shot, some killed, in st.lucia in just over two weeks. The whole time comm. Phillips and his boys there hiding. Not one murderer they arrest, not even one suspect they name, over 8 people killed. Mr.Phillips never called in his boys when the three kids died in Dennery, mr.Phillips had nothing for the mother who lost her son, never called for back up for that, but for carnival? You see is different. Mr.Phillips didn’t even issue a statement to reassure the scared citizens of st.lucia that he is there, he is doing something, so maybe one person in st.lucia could get justice for their dead child, but mr.Phillips will be out in force, with all his boys, to protect the visitors during carnival. Stupidity should be a crime, pierre even more stupid, that’s why he haven’t fired him.

  5. And after Carnival More and More Homicides Unsolved. Where’s the Modern Technology for the police Man power and The Tools .This is More than Bad

  6. No way I am playing any mas in this crime ridden environment. Criminals to brazen and you never know who jumping next to you. I’m out until..

  7. The Entire police Force should protest for man power and Modern Technology to Deal with crime Stop asking Citizens to Come forward to give information this type of Investation is out Dated I sick and Tired of Hearing this

  8. Those resources would be better put into solving crimes such as all the homicides. But for a sleazy, drunken carnival all the resources are in place! Crazy island, with crazy “leaders” and people obsessed with Limin and good times. Put that energy into something positive and helpful to the island. Haven’t you noticed that Sent Lisie is descending into hell?!
