  1. When all that drugs went missing up in Soufriere went missing the other day what people are thinking it’s going to be a sunny day in paradise without repercussions ? Drug’s (the white devil) breeds crime. All you see going on now it’s about drugs(the white devil ) fellows don’t fight over weed anymore it’s a local commodity grown right here everyone can get that like green figs. Even that shooting in VF I have my own theory because every one in the community knows he an officer is not yesterday’s he is been living there……that’s another chapter. People stop blaming the PM for every shot fired this is bigger than him; these shootings are not random acts.

  2. So many Cameras in that area .This is very Disturbing to ask eye Witnesses to come Foward.Countryman have posted a Video on You Tube updating on these Homicides .He have made it abundantly clear that he will only Speak to the Cop he’s very true and Correct so where do the Rslpf go from There

  3. This guy comes on utube saying whatever comes out of his rear end and lucians are running with it goes to show the he say she say they say is the cause of a lot crimes in this country,

  4. Country man is nothing but an informer!. ..most of what he utters is untrue,just sithing gossip everywhere….he once said gratta boys dirt Kimmy, whilst Kimmy is alive and well.. .dat guy is a fool looking for likes and clouts…Mouta Massy bwoy.

  5. The man thought kimmy was Richard he probably check he made that mistake already
