  1. In many countries, and some US states such as Florida, a perpetrator has to prove that bail money is legitimate. One just can’t throw a pile of money on the desk and expect to get bail. It ain’t happening. I’m not sure if there is such a law here. If not, it should be considered.

  2. Arrested for possession of an illegal gun, released with paying pity money. Why doesn’t bail have some teeth, so (the) individual(s) have an incentive to show up to Court, or think twice about possessing an illegal firearm?

  3. Them man will never ever go and work for 3bro 5 EC dollars an hour like the thousands of St Lucian and take shit from the boss who thinks that he owns you and treat you are like his dog

  5. How many of the previous gun cases have been finalized? What were the results? Or is it a series of adjournment?
    We need to know. The gun cases are just like the sale of our passports we are not hearing anything from both uwp or slp.
