      Lucians are fast to react and their daily bread is COMPLAINING espevially when it is about ssomething that they will not benefit from personally. This is actually returning a CURSE on St. Lucia and many of them are expressing hatred undercover so I am never surprise when these crimes occur. St. Lucians themselves have to stop crime no government can do it for them. Speakout when something is wrong, give support to someone who is trying to do something for the country, forgive more often than before, respect each other and other persons opinion, do not judge especially negatively when you do not have the full facts, criticize less and help make changes for the betterment of St. Lucia and its citizens. People please comment on the news item not on the other person’s comment. A person`s words and expressions always come back to hunt them either in a positive way or negative. Ensure yours come back positive with peace within you. Also St. Lucia Times should monitor the contents and expressions of information expressed under these news items.

    People need to stop politicizing crime. Its this one fault or its that 1 fault its always the blame game. Instead of playing that game we all need to come together and reports those criminal acts when we see them instead of turning a blind eye. Lets put our heads together to figure out how can we help curb this rise in crime.
