    What is the real motive for going after the constable? Its a petty situation. Doesn’t the station have an Inspector? Couldn’t he have hàndled this situation? I suspect its a jealousy thing going on here. Apparently the constable’s sleek black 4 door burning a lot of them who make a lot more money than him. Smh.

    From my understanding the matter was resolved between the two in the presence of the Administrative Officer and the Inspector. So how did this end up going so far? Is it true that an ASP who is very close to the cleaner is the one pushing? St Lucia Times you broke the story so you need to do some in depth investigation. I suspect that there is alot more to this than meets the eye.
