    Whatever the judge decides it better be a penalty that sends out a clear message to those who believe that they can hit and run like it’s the order of the day.

    St Lucia is small …someone had to have seen something that will lead to you eventually. Now. .after searching and looking for leads. You’re held. Hope you get what you rightly deserve.

    We need to pay better regards to life. Respect life. Fullstop

      Society you have a great point. Jail wasn’t made for murders and law breakers.
      It’s made for persons who commit an offense that warrants them doing time.
      If anyone of us end up there it’s because we did something that was un lawful. So let’s try to not commit these heinous acts so we can live free.

      I believe you do the crime you should be ready to face the time. Fullstop
