  1. to the person or persons that killed Patrick your day will come you left his two to three year old daughter without a father and he was all that she had. Those who know will really understand. and to the police please do your investigations properly and swiftly cause you do have a clue why he was murdered like this. Use your skills and connect the dots

  2. Wah. A hustler. Bro on your way to work. Yesterday morning you wish me a bless day and tell me hold on tight. So f. Sad

  3. Folks, our country has been lost since 1997 when PM Kenny Davis Anthony took over from the late Sir John George Melvin Compton. The shocking fact which most people do not realize is the homicide rate in 1996 was 8 per year and that increased to 40 per year by 2002. This represents a 400% increase. Similarly the Debt to GDP Ratio increased astronomically in that same period to little benefit for the country. The SLP government has be in power for 4 of the last 6 terms, they are responsible. You can find these facts with a simple google search, please go make yourself wiser.

    it will end when people stop having hate in their heart but love, it will end when people stop being jealous of each other, it will end when people stop borborling and scamming each other it will end when people have respect for each other, it will end when people stop wasting others time when rendering a service to the public for example the long lines at the banks and only two tellers to help people. it will end when you owe somebody that worked for you for how long and you pay the person on time. It will end when the police stop abusing their authority and actually do their work to apprehend the real criminals and give us the justice that we deserve. Alot of times people just come here and say things but they fail to realize its an accumulation of alot of little things that cause people to do crimes when you just cant take it anymore.

  5. My advice to these young men and women that is in that mischief mindset it’s not worth it..for the country not good for the family and friends my heart is my age going around st lucia people are angry..people don’t want to talk my question is why..God heal our wounds and land please I’m begging

  6. What is the total number of deaths this week what is the next steps and we have had shoots everyday this week from Sunday some have died but other are in stable condition each one is getting earlier than the last. If so many have been happening in the day time and school is opening on Monday what can we do to protect our children that are going back to school

  7. @ Lucian Nice

    When we as citizens stop turning the other cheek to casual crime, a perfect example is the young men, knowingly unemployed, not paying any taxes or have any financial commitments anywhere….but have top clothing, cars, bikes, able to give women money, have some serious gold in the neck, fingers or ears. Its true, survival of the fittest, doing what needs to be done to eat but at what point is it deemed no longer acceptable?

    Dont bring government into it either… the failure started at home…it is a vicious cycle…and will continue to be until the social status of the modern-family home has been sorted. Single moms or troubled homes breed young men whom are out of pocket ready to be accepted by the streets,

    It is a hard matter to deal with, jobs are not plentiful not to mention having provide for a family on an paycheck to paycheck salary. Young men branch off to do what they learn outside the home, they are recruited by the kingpins, the kingpins associates and so on so forth. Now because of the saturation of these individuals…turf becomes an issue. Loyalty becomes an issue. Trust becomes an issue…. RESPECT becomes an issue.

    We have lost a vital part of living on this little island and that is being our brothers keeper.

    Its all become a selfish world.

    So the fight will always continue…

  8. You all know who the criminals are – because you all are very familiar with each other and that in itself is a SERIOUS part of the problem – the St. Lucian government needs to solicit outside assistance/intervention for this serious gang/killing issues which clearly they are unable to resolve.. Therefore, let the foreign forces which are extremely well equipped to handle your 238 square miles assist before it is too late for St. Lucia.

    You rely on tourism for your economic growth – remember social media is in full effect with imagery all over the world with the current situation in St. Lucia thanks to your citizens – you guys need a resolution sooner than later.

  9. Let’s be clear: this shooting and killing nonsense has nothing to do with Kenny Anthony, Pierre, SLP, Chastanet or UWP. Folks have a false sense of personal power. Killing or gun violence does not solve problems. It creates problems and hardship. Our laws don’t seem to deter possession of illegal guns.

  10. Isn’t it ironic that after 18 months of being among us the Police caught a man accused of killing 3 people. How many of those murders are next door to you is the question ? Is The Fox guarding The Hen House ? Why are The Courts So Consitpated ? The Evil Doers are taking advantage of The Downfall Of Justice. HELP !!!

  11. James Banks wrote that the shootings have nothing to do with KDA, PJP or Chas, then wrote that the laws not helping. I got news for u. The laws that govern us can ONLY be altered by PJP right now. KDA and Chas kept those laws. Hence it is OBVIOUS that KDA, PJP and Chas hv primary responsibility based on your assertion about our laws. STOP SHIELDING POLITICIANS. The borders can only be protected by the National Security measures set by PJP. This foolishness about the Home. Facts Our transportation system to where all the jobs are means parents hv to lv home 5a.m. and return 7 or 8p.m. and therefore the kids are left to raise themselves. Tell PJP and King to do something about Travel Time and congestion on the CGRI Hwy. Here we go again. PJP is the only man now who can do something about expanding the road network to help parents spend time at home.

  12. “This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come”. This is a quote from the Bible. It went on the list the evils that will be seen. This book has not been wrong. The three main reasons for the state of affairs in our nation and the world are forgetting God, lack of love and pride. One may want to add selfishness. Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to a people.

  13. no it will only end when people acknowledge that there is a God and dont make him an option but a priority In our lives. that’s when it will stop. there is no other way

  14. Dear St Lucians πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨
    It will be always so, what has been,must fullfill ❗
    If there no one to preach,how can we be saved ❓
    Lying Pastors and more :
    My heart is broken Within me to see pastors begining in the name of the LORD, is not how happy the house is and not big ❓ So then God has becomes a beggar ❓
    They are like a drunken man, like a man overdose by wine, because of the LORD and his holy words…
    The land πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨ is full of adulterers ;
    because the curse the land lies parched…
    The pastors,prophets… follow an 😈 evil course πŸ’‰ vaccinations,and use their power unjustly…
    “Both prophets,priest, pastors elders christians are godless ;even in my temple (the ❀️ heart of man)I find their wickedness”…
    Therefore their paths will becomes slippery ;they will be banish to darkness and there they will fall…
    I (God will bring disaster on them in the year they are punished”,declares the LORD.
    “Among them,I saw this repulsive thing : They prophesied by Baal, (the foreign gods… and led my people of πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨ St Lucia astray…And among them,I have seen something horrible :They commit adultery and live a lie…
    They strenghten the hand of the 😈 evildoers, that no one turn from their wickedness…
    They are like Sodomie to me ;and the people of πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨ St Lucia are like Gomorrah”….

  15. My siblings just returned from St. Lucia and they said – it was so sad to see soo many people in St. Lucia elderly, adults and young folk heavenly involved in witchcraft, voodoo and abeah – way the devil is running rampant – what a shame.

  16. @ Anonymous – If you believe witchcraft, Voodoo and all other nonsense you may add to the list work then you will see them and you will understand the wasted practice. I do not believe in that crap and will never understand how this nonesense can work. It is a mind thing and once you believe then in your mind it works

  17. We will not judge by what we see with our eyes nor we will decide by what we hear with our ears, but they will be destroyed not by human hands ‼️
    Keep fearing God !
