  1. I’m very pleased with the action and hard work of the Police. I just want to some of us St Lucians are bias and Condon crime for personal gain.

  2. Good job Officers !! – These are all charges. Those folks have not been found guilty. How soon can we get some verdicts

  3. Send them in for life imprisonment hard labour have them to clean our beaches, fix our roads give them one meal a day

  4. Hope they are all convicted and charged and hung. That’s 8 less problems for the country and taxpayers.

  5. “our youths are doomed..check the age range.”

    Not just the youth, the entire country is doomed. Young people are needed to sustain economies and NIC. With no new inflows NIC will go broke. Pensioners will get nothing for all the years of contribution. NIC is one of the largest holders of government debt. If they start liquidating these, government won’t be able to afford to pay them back. This is at crisis levels and the sheep leading the sheep are pretending it isn’t. This country is almost guaranteed to become a failed state. That’s the result of unchecked lawlessness, disregard for societal order, and the do as you please attitude of the vast majority of people in this country. A country and society cannot survive thrive without law and order and people following established rules and protocols.

  6. Teenagers! We need to give hope to our youth. They should not be going down the path of destruction. Help! Prayers!

  7. @Haiti here we come: Agreed 100%, how can any Country carry on at that rate beats me. Sorry to say, we are very close to what goes on over there. Beside being dead, take a look at the amount of young men locked up in Prison; they neither work, pay Taxes or contribute to anything legally, socially or Economically, they would rather ‘steal, kill & destroy’ the classical Badge of the evil one, its name we’ve all heard i.e. Voodoo; so go knock yourselves out; next stop, St.Lucia.

  8. This is very incompetent and sloppy investigation by the police,..they have no skills,no resources, no intelligence, no tactics,no mind….one man get shot they arrest and charge 8 individuals, that means the police didn’t do a proper investigation with evidence and ballistics etc.they just hoping that those boys will squeal on each other…with some doe or land suitable assurity those negroes can walk……or the police was hoping by taking out all those thugs off the street the shooting wpuld stop but it hasn’t
