Chastanet says criminals are the enemy!

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has declared that criminals are the enemy.

“I am not convinced that  poverty contributes to crime only – there’s still a certain amount of values that we have and Saint Lucians must see criminals, not as maleways, but as people who are affecting our society,” Chastanet said.

He declared:

“They are the enemy – they are the people who are destroying our livelihoods.”

The Prime Minister said as a result, people should not be protecting the criminals.

He told a news conference on Thursday evening that the police  alone cannot be doing the job of crime fighting.

Chastanet spoke of the need for the judicial process to obtain quick convictions so that people know that crime is not going to pay.

“Right now I think a lot of people commit  a lot of crimes in this country because there is no fear of being convicted,” the Prime Minister told Thursday’s news conference, adding that there was need to change that.

He explained that while his administration will be seeking to beef up the police force with new equipment, the emphasis in the first six to eight months will be on the judicial system.

Chastanet disclosed that more money will be spent on obtaining Magistrates and Judges and increasing the number of court houses.

      You see why when I read the comments and I see what you have written
      My only thoughts then is to toss you into the corner and start throwing jabs at you
      Tell me what is it that you have against Chastenet? Did he abuse you as a child ? Did put his mouth on your penacool and sucked out the good senses in your brain

      Let’s discuss something good for get him for a while what can you offer

    When when a woman is pregnant and going through tough times, she will attract a Soul of low calibration for her child, therefore those kids are most likely to become criminals. This can be prevented by helping these women in every way possible.

    And don’t forget, the first 5 years will shape the child as well….so today’s criminals are a product of society’s neglect, we can fix the source for the next generation.

    The haves should help the have-nots, otherwise crime will end up on your doorstep. You cannot live inside gated walls forever…so it’s up to you! Pay it now or pay it later…your choice.

    Some how I think that Mr Chastenet and his crew is getting it all wrong in his quest to suppress crime no amount of judges ,magistrates and police will be able to rid or suppress crimes that a perpetuated against us at this time .

    In order for this to happen it would unthinkable the amount of work that will have to be done and for this to take place there will need the birth of radical regime change of which can take the sides of any form , the current concept and thinking of the masses will have to change discipline will be first and foremost and as we stand at this juncture we a just an island of lawlessness where any thing goes at any given time , law is for some and not for others and this has to change ,there must be one law and this must be one mind set and unless this is so we a doomed .

    Because this nation is so dependant on tourism and foreign investment. Chastenent must invest a proportional amount of money into crime fighting and criminal processing services as a political sign that st. Lucia is not a backwater and that it is a nation that takes these offenses seriously.

    Sadly, most chimps in this country are not clever enough to gauge reason out of political manoeuvre and will therefore default to the typical chimp mindset of the white man keeping them down.

    I’m honestly not surprised by it. Politics for the common man is red vs yellow in st. Lucia.

    Which criminal is the enemy? Is it just the fellas peddling drugs round the corner? Is it just the hooligans shooting one another on the streets? HELL NO! The criminals are mostly people who LIME with you, Mr. Hurricane . . . it is the BIG WIG, with money, who is the enemy enemy of the state. They are the ones behind the drugs and killings! Deal with that!

    Chastenet once said poverty or poor people were the enemies. Now its criminals. That guy just says whatever comes to mind.

    In situations like this that’s not how you say that. The proper way to phrase that is as follows: That guy just says whatever comes out of his jaw. In any he has no mind. If he has one it is redundant.

    I knew this thing would come back to bite him in the behind the moment he said it and it has come to pass: remember when the caller on the radio call in program made the statement about taking the life of the then PM KDA ? From things like this all sensible public figures would have at least in public distance themselves but not Chastanet in his second to none wisdom. Instead he said he understood the caller’s criminal position. And today he is coming to tell us criminals are the enemy of the country. Once upon a time it was politically expedient to take the side of criminal vocalizations but now crime is no longer sweet. I think the seat is getting a bit hot for you Sir!
