  1. Can someone please help me – I understand innocent until proven guilty. However, with all due respect in your 238 square miles – most likely you have indeed arrested the murderer.

    The question: would someone who is literally arrested on a murder charge be granted bail?????????????

  2. Criminals Photos Should be published .This is Really Foolishness in St.Lucia.Stop Being good to Criminals

  3. They refuse to go and look for work to do in the private sector ,in Dennery all they do is smoke cocaine drink rum and steal young plantains from hard working farmers and sell it for road side vendors. Those women who are buying stolen food should stop that practice…

  4. @bipolar, farmers are lacking work force here to work on farms. You are indeed right but what you said is not only confine to Dennery, there are other places like Babboneau, chousel, bexon, roseau, etc. Its time those farmers revert to serious whitch-craft when they go steal they stay right there pulling grass out or digging drains until the owner arrive. Moly, crack, weed, met all are available to our youths today coming in primarily from Martinique.

  5. God dnt sleep u lil wanna b badman real badman does kill people n nva get caught when u digging yr pit dig one for yr self pussy nothing but distruction shall follow u 4 the rest of yr life rot in jail u lil pussy real niggas do real shit n nva get caught learn dt disgrace to human race more to go hospital, cemetery or jail fools ?
