  1. I am glad to hear that these vermin fungus among us are still in custody. This is a great start to ending Catch and Release of Criminals.

  2. Please please please don’t grant bail to these demons (agents of the devil). If you do make it possible for them to pay – like 100 billion. I know that everyone deserves representation – word to the greedy lawyers – please please “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Sometimes for your well being and the welfare of the St. Lucian society you just have to say nicely I am unable to represent you at this time.
