  1. Are these two guys related or just coincidence of last names?
    Asking for a friend?
    I doubt very much that crime will stop in the near future in St Lucia,as long as there are soo many young men are unemployed due to the slave wages system..
    What do we expect with such low wage system, very soon, the crime situation will arrive at the politians doorstep and by then it will to late.
    Two thirds of the island are poor, desperate, overworked and underpaid and what do we expect from desperate people…
    The government has been taking about enacting a minimum wage for over a year ago and still, no action… It’s time to look at the other side of the coin 🪙.. None of the politians can’t be trusted.
    Kenny Anthony said it and that’s a fact..
    The same families are in both sides.. untrustworthy.they are afraid of each other and due to that the workers are not being represented properly..

  2. A rock star gone bad
    now rock star becomes a criminal
    rock star turns in. prisoner what a shame on that mess
    So please any other rock stars out there remaining please do your best to keep the title as rock star never give it up for a prisoner’s title please
