  1. Good work RSLPF. Keep up the good work and know the majority of us St. Lucians are on your side.

  2. There are some malvaatyes in St. Lucia whose main goal is to cause destruction. Most of citizens are law abiding, however the small percentage of malvaatayes is ruining the island both internally and externally. Godspeed

  3. I don’t know how and why St Lucia has so many firearms. The police force needs to start making impromptu random searches of motorists and communities.
