Violence forces early end to J’ Ouvert

Violence forced an early end to J’ Ouvert celebrations this morning, an official of the Saint Lucia Fire Service has said.

Divisional Officer, George Victorin, explained that there was a good turnout for the event.

But he said there were quite a few incidents.

Victorin told the Times that a young lady was stabbed in the chest and had to be transported to Victoria Hospital.

He recalled that soon afterwards, a fight broke out.

According to Victorin, both incidents took place on Jeremie Street near the Castries Market.

He disclosed that as a result of those and other incidents, the police called an early end to the event.

Victorin stated that the festivity was supposed to have continued until 8 am but was halted before 6:am today.

He observed that his men faced the usual challenges relating to manpower and equipment, but were able to get the job done.

“We had coverage of most of the events,” the Saint Lucia Fire Service official revealed.

Victorin appealed to revelers to contribute to a peaceful carnival celebration.

“It’s a peaceful event and we are supposed to enjoy it,” he asserted.

        That is so so true. I used to jump jouvert and get home in just enough time to shower and head back on the road in costume. Those were the days.

    Seriously, can’t you see a Pattern of Loss of Life by Violent Means, since the Inferior Party (UWP) and Pinocchio at the Helm?
    Even Carnival Events have to be shut-down, due to Allen/Pinocchio’s Good Boys + Let Loose Unsupervised.
    Lord, We are DOOMED!

    A definite pattern. Upsurge in violence with Allen as PM. It is because he is paying Lucifer for the election.

    The more attention that is given to SBT,the more fulishness he talks. People in this country are very hyper, angry and decencertised. Any little thing they want to kill or hurt each other. It is a sad state for our country and the world at wide

    We can’t make the majority of law abiding revelers suffer because of a few ignorant hooligans. RPF take control and get those hooligans off the streets.

    Sad but True, I hope all your holes are blocks especially the one in your pipe. You should not be able to have children because it is thugs like you and those in your blood line who cause destruction. Cheap talk, you jack. Everything must be politics? Go to NSDC and learn a skill.

    I swear I will stop reading St. Lucia Times. I am beginning to think this person is one of the administration on this site. One can’t be coming on here every second to be so unscrupulous!

    I thought Allen was elected to eradicate crime. So he pulled a fast one on us. What a joke. Lucians look it your votes are not working.

    Police force too laid back, it’s a small country everyone know where the hot spots are, I can’t imagine the police force doesn’t have that kind of info as well. If they straticially place their resources in the right areas the event can be controlled.
