Sister: Victim was killed on his way to work

The sister of shooting victim, Peter Satney, 52, has told the Times that her brother was fatally shot on his way to work this morning.

Juliana Satney, better known as Marilyn Satney, said this morning her son received a telephone call indicating that his uncle had been shot.


(Juliana Satney)

“They took his bag – his phone, because the phone not even in the bag and all his papers, all his documents, they dropped it in the gutter lower down the road,” the woman told the Times.

She described her brother as a very quiet person who goes to work every morning.

“He does not have trouble with anybody because he is very quiet,” Satney said of her brother who is a construction worker.

“It shock everybody because everybody when they heard that, they did not believe that,” she stated in reference to the fatal shooting.

Her brother was shot three times in the abdomen as he made his way to work in the early hours of this morning, according to reports.

Residents of Cedars where the incident occurred said they heard two screams, after which they heard gunshots.

      The police cannot stop the violence. The pubic as a whole have to do it. Stop depending on the police. We the citizens of St Lucia have to take our country back from those criminals. It seems now people cannot leave their home to go no where so people we need to rally and give the police the info or take it in our own hands. Neighborhood watch needs to be brought back.

        Trust me they will when it hits them. They don’t care now. The politicians don’t care . It’s the little people getting robbed and shot. See how quickly they put up barriers by the Marina when one white person got hit by a car there. Now look at all those dangerous roads all over the island that have no sort of protection from the huge drops. Many locals have died on these. Nothing done.

        But one day, those chickens will come home to roost. The little people will have nothing for them to steal. They will turn to the big people.

      The police are in a comatose state. We the good citizens that have to declare war on the bandits and put them 6 feet under. And then when the next bandit is caught by the police and charged you hearing that the criminal was granted bail for $5000. Whilst on bail he gets a fireman and squeezes the trigger……….

    Once again another life has been lost to senseless violence. Condolences to the family of the victim. Crime is going to spiral out of control once the perpetrators are not apprehended. Some of these thugs are career criminals, they make their living by preying on people and selling illicit substances. The Police Force has to be more proactive and the citizens become more involved in fighting this scourge.

    Some st Lucian are just dumb. You all really believe the police can help stop the killings? Can you all recount how many police officers who commit crimes and nothing is done about it. You hear a male police raped a little boy nothing for that. Police men raped a woman, nothing. So what the hell do u expect from the criminals, it’s like the blind leading the blind. Who ever commits a crime and I mean police, politicions, business owners, lawyer, doctors etc should have to face the court system like any regular St Lucian citizen.

      We’ve had a gun amnesty. The SLP gov’t paid hundreds for the guns. The gunslingers took the money and bought better guns. At this point there is very little citizens can do save patrolling the streets themselves. But remember the gunslingers have guns. You have? This is a situation clearly in the realm of the authorities. Sure we can cooperate when we see a crime. But how competent are the police in delivering on prosecuting. And imagine you testifying to a crime for the police to lose the case. What happens to you when the gunslinger is free?

      The only solution to this is allowing citizens to carry firearms. The thugs have no problem acquiring them. They have no problem using them because they know law abiding citizens are unarmed. Imagine if this thief knew this guy has a firearm and the will to use it. Would he have taken a chance to rob and shoot the guy? I highly doubt that. Fighting fire with fire is the only solution sometimes.

    The seeds of st.lucia’s social ills were planted during slavery and at independence: slavery damaged many: psychologically emotionally mentally. Giving so called independence without adequate economic help to build infrastructure, educate the masses, and set them on strong footing has trickled down for decades: teen pregnancies, poverty, dysfunctional homes, frustration, short tempers, fights, beayings, violence etc. Police cannot solve this.

So many cellphones around the place peeping into people’s bedrooms for as little as $700 and nobody cannot take pictures of the bandits for free? What is the reward for exposing the bandits via social media? Now every bandit with a gun feels free to walk the streets killing people. I say we adopt a zero tolerance to illegal gun crimes and that we have no bail for persons found with illegal firearms. Now the police USE of FORCE POLICY must be tweaked ensure that there is a shoot-to-kill policy by the police once they encounter resistance from bandits with illegal firearms.

    its sad that whiles our country is going through this crisis ppl look upon and blame politicians. the crime situation is affecting us as a citizen. we all need to do our part in its prevention. Make use of y’all smart phones and start recording when you see something is happening. A little can go along way. If you have information give it to the police not your gossipy neighbor. PPL we need to take back our country from these criminals. to many innocent ppl dying.
