  1. In other words – the fool received a slap on the wrist and is back out to commit additional criminal activities which may or may not include ——-?????????????

    To those who believe that the malvetayeees are looking for legal employment and if the minimum wage is increased they will not engage in illegal activity – think again.

  2. Excellent work by the RSLPF!

    The fellow may be bailed out, but his pockets are lighter and he has a day in court. Bordelais may well be in his future. But, that is for a jury and judge to decide.

    A firearm off the streets and a reckless fellow feeling heat and a whole lot poorer. A good days work.

  3. Did we ever had a minimum wage in st lucia , nah never . Hope one will be enacted for the first time early next year as we can not continue to workers working for wages as low as 3 EC dollars an hour, educated or not educated

  4. There were two police vehicles involved in an accident, we have not heard much from this. Can someone comment plz.

  5. I wonder what happens to the guns after they are seized from the criminals. I know the police are not destroying these weapons. So the question is are these weapons getting back on the streets?

  6. @James I can think of several things that can be done with seized firearms.

    First, I would ask, how is it that you “know” the seized firearms aren’t being destroyed?

    That aside, they could be sold to licences and approved firearms owners, with funds going to the government. They could be rendered inoperable, but still be used as training aides for police. They could remain operational and still be used as training aides for police. They could be traced to a nation of origin and be passed to them for investigation as to how they were transported to St Lucia and aid in the prosecution of smugglers in those nations.

    These are just a few possibilities and I assure you there are many more.
