    Sad to say my fellow citizens, mary, chastanet or kenny can curb this nation. It is only Jesus who can. Where are the churches, what are they doing? Prayers people, not blame that we need at this pointing time. Get into small groups anf pray, anoint family members with olive oil. Keep fasting and praying people. The men killing women is not the enemy. SATAN IS!! dont let him blind u all, he is hiding behind those men, they are victims too. Pray haaaarrrd and keep praying, God bless you all.

      I agree with you we’re calling on churches but we not getting our lives in shape as the bible says, y’all don’t meet and pray just party and live wild and expect God to run when we call Him think again this nation needs Jesus

      Stop blaming the devil for the wickedness that people do. People need to take responsibility for their actions. How can olive oil prevent crime? We need to love more and hate less. We need the entire population to participate in ridding the country of this hideous gender biased violence. Only the determined efforts of all decent minded and law abiding citizens would drastically reduce the all too frequent incidents of this ‘malignant societal cancer’. The killing of the fairer sex MUST STOP NOW!

      What jesus!!! Huh!!! Havent you realize that these things happen because of this (Word deleted) jesus!?… folks have been hearing jesus is coming soon grow old and see their mothers fathers grand parents die and still no jesus. The issue is this religeon (Word deleted). We are spiritual people and we need to go back to that. Break away from this mental slavery shit. Truly be free. Appericiate each other more and realize we are truly the Gods of this earth. That God leaves in us and not out there somewhere in the heavens. We have to realize that teaching that something is going to happen and it never does brings frustration. We have to give back to these slave masters whats theirs and go back to a culture where we would give our lives to defend our black women ….. as long as we keep going around saying we need jesus to help us it aint gonna happen because jesus never existed.

    Its high time that we Lucians elevate ourselves from this backward partisan thinking. Everything or act that is taking place in our society is because of learned or accepted behaviour taught by the family. Yes I agree that God is the main solution for this problem or should I say disease right now, but we really need to revisit what the term family really means, only then can we have a hold no this escalating vicious cycle.

    Ah ha! Thanks for the clarification… And she is right, what are we doing that warrants killing us? We must really take a stand. We need to stop the chatter about our greveances and make a concrete stand.
    Change starts with me, it starts with you, it starts with us!
    It is the decisions we chose
    It is us.
    If I express my anger in a way that affects the the next st lucian I can’t blame the government or even the cause of my anger I need to blame me. I decided, I chose. We need to take responsibility and we need to respect ourselves, others and St Lucia as a whole.

    Guys please understand, Mary Francis and her organization doesn’t care about the victims of those killers … there are more concerned about how law enforcement pursue them and treated.. They care about criminals treated as humans not about not about the humans whose right are violated by criminals… smh
    Not even the so called leaders are taking a stand against it. When someone can be killed because of a greeting text then what is left ….
    Human rights my behind…

    Women if you are being abuse by your partner it is not okay . Get out, if a man love and care about you why would he abuse u it is not love. Seek help before it is to late. Love yourself, you don’t need an abuser to validate who u are. Learn to be independent for yourself.

    I concur. Then what do we do? I recommend bringing back capital punishment even if there seems to be no evidence of it helping in curbing crime. What I do know is my people and I know that they may think twice before subjecting themselves to that sort of shame.
    My opinion, what do you think?

    “What are women doing to get killed? They’re being home makers, mothers, grandmother’s and wives. The foundation of this nation but insecure little boys who can handle independent strong women are killing the very life of this nation. Women are now more than ever overly cautious if not downright scared. Men wake up before its not too late

    As a father of daughters, I say Women need to band together and shut this island down! This is not only a St. Lucian issue unfortunately. However, women must pressure governments and the legal system to make the necessary legislative changes and actually enforce them to the extent that it results in real change to this craziness. The system is broken! Welcome to the new normal! Clearly current laws and penalties do not act as a deterrent to those determined to kill. Force the system to find penalties until you women find that deterrent that works to your satisfaction.

    The business of marching up and down with placards and candlelight vigils and next day back to business as usual clearly makes no difference ! This is the definition of a psychosis, doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Use your voices, work, monies, any power until the persons who commit these heinous crimes of rape and murder get true punishment for what they have done and are planning to do as I write.

    This lady did nothing to deserve having someone terminate her life in this manner. It also goes to show that abusive only carte about themselves. You mean to tell me that the amount of blows that was put on the woman by this man he never paused to think it was a woman who did so much for you? Cooked and took all you dished out on her body so much you killed her? How would you feel if some man did the same to your mother? What is it that the lady did to you that was so bad? Would you be happy if someone did the same to your mother? Would it be alright if someone did the same thing to your sister? Do you not realize that this lady had kids? She was not a dog you know. Even when a dog is hit by a car people feel sorry for it. This lady was a human being with a family. If you were the boyfriend did you not love her? Or you just used her and when you had no more use for her you killed her like an animal?
    Man’s judgement is quick but God’s judgement is slow but sure. Hope you are ready to face the great judgement for killing an innocent lady who only loved you ..murderer
