      A police office must not shoot a fleeing assailant.
      You morons are the same ones who cry out foul when a white racist American police officer does the same to Blacks in the US.

    As far as i see it the officer did nothing wrong. The needed to shoot him and all those who do not obey the law twice. That officer needs a good dam lawyer. WHY THE HELL DID HE RUN? DID HE HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE …MAYBE A WEAPON? DID HE PUT HIS HAND IN HI POUCH? HOW CAN WE SAY THE OFFICER DIDN’T FEEL THREATENED.The criminals want to get away with every and any thing . Weed IS FREAKING ILLEGAL!! So some ppl get to obey the law while some , its ok for them . (Word deleted) I would have emptied the gun on him. Theses same ppl will rape, steal, kill, rob, threaten and then get $500 bail. the bail is set way too high as far as i see.

      I agree with you, and Imo…. Operation restore confidence was the best thing to happen to us when these so call ‘gangsters’ were just killing innocent persons with all their stray bullets having persons not able to even come to the city to carry out their daily transactions…. If it were not for O.R.C, St Lucia would be in a terrible state….. But, I guess, the only thing we Lucians see to do, is hate the police cause the police ‘evil’ and the police is ‘fight dong’. The same police that is on the road in the dark of the night in times of storms and all other life threatening weather when these persons are at home with family, the same police that will ran after a group of armed bandits who probably just robbed and killed somebody…. That same police

    St. Lucians so hypocrite the man is a police officer doing his job. It is sad that someone died. I doubt he wanted to kill the man and every comment you read these people calling to send him on remand the bail too low idiots bail and remand should not be a form of punishment but a guarantee that that the accused will appear in court. The man didn’t just purposely take a gun a kill the man in cold blood like many of the hardened criminals do. If it was the other way around and it was the police officer who had died many of you would be rejoicing. Lucians make me sick. The job of a police officer is not an easy one. Give the police a break and let justice take its course. Is not every police officer in a bad egg. Most of you commenting would rather take the side of the criminal than support the police in their fight against crime that’s why there is so much violence in st. Lucia today. If a criminal kill a man in cold blood no body never see anything, if is a police that shoot a man everybody is a witness even on TV you seeing them talking to reporters. yo par pear, day ban hypocrite

    St lucians dont think! If a police officer shoots someone dont go judging based on what u hear. Im nt giving the ofdice right but Be think what if every criminal turned his back and run after comitin a crime that would be stupid cause no police would be able to do anything

    These lucians too hypocrit àll a them hiding the criminals because they figure they will get a dollar from but wait when its one of their children who becomes one of the victims u will hear them, their children was good!thats what theh all say.st lucians what is it that u’all want ? The police are there to do a difficult in these criminals times ppl killing ppl with no regard let us stay and reflect, could’nt this just be a caze of reflects were the man run and the shot just took the man in his head, please humor me a moment because i simply would not believe a police who is good or bad would get up in the morning and decide he’s going to sboot someone in his head.surely its only the criminals themselves who would give such impression to cause chaos against the police

    Because there are so many evil people in the police force, they have caused the people faith in them to run out. Officers are not helpful and show no concern for society, they are on a power trip, and not just officers but government employees, because they are not being fired nor disciplined. What happy resulting in once death should be dealt with no partiality. Lucia in itself is a hell. God need to just do something with this place.
