  1. Bail is still being set at such a small amount for firearms and ammunition. I don’t know how police officers continue their work when the court system is so soft on criminals.

  2. Any time bail is set at such a small amount, it’s because the individual was very cooperative and he assisted the police in knowing some of those in possession with illegal firearms. And, I have no problem with that.

  3. WHY ARREST PPL WITH AMMO AND FIRE ARMS, AND LET THEM GO ON BAIL. KEEP THAT INFO TO YOU ALL SELVES. LET THEM GO TO GET MORE AND CONTINUE THEIR CRIME NONSENCE. THEN WHEN THEY KILL SOMEONE YOU ALL CLAIMING MENTAL ILLNESS. CHOOPS.

  4. Thumbs up for jokers. Police offers as much as I may have my little prick with you all… but Awa wee. Efforts down the drain.

  5. 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.

  6. I am still asking about all the previous gun cases in the court. Are the courts still known as adjournment courts?Magistrate Phulchere please let us know why some of these gun cases cannot go to trials.
