      Yes. Depend on the police to deal with the situation while you and many like you sit on your lazy arses. The police has nothing to lose. Detect or not. But we have everything to lose. So stop pointing fingers at the police, get your lazy arse up from your slumber and help in the fight against crime.

    A few years ago the Government and the Police Force imposed a ban on the importation of toy guns as people were using the toys to commit armed robberies.
    Now we have more real guns (with bullets) on our streets than toy guns which means that the toy gun ban was successful. Let’s see how the Government and Police Force will restrict the importation/smuggling and use of real illegal firearms on our streets. Quik Quack

    “Has Kenny Anthony made St Lucia safe? He didn’t. He didn’t, but we will. I will”… Allen Chastanet, before the general elections. Now we at 48. By year end, we will be at 60+. Someone, or some people should be held accountable.

      Careful what you wish for while playing the political game. You, your children or anther close love one might very well end up being 49, 50, 52…. or 60. You pick the number you are most comfortable with. Each of the 48 numbers are real people some innocent, with real family left grieving Not political points. Oh P.S. yes the government needs to do something and quick. That I agree with. We cannot just say it is criminals killing criminals or throw our hands in the air. Unacceptable!

        First of all I didn’t wish for anything. I just used a mathematical probability to drive my point home. And you said I picked a number I’m comfortable with. Yes, and that doesn’t mean that I excluded myself or my family or friends. What you failed to address though was my point that politicians come on platforms and lie, or make false promises to the electorate to win elections, then forget those same promises. That is my argument. And they must be held accountable for those promises.

    Let those of us who know God and have a relationship with Him, cry out for mercy!
    There is great power in prayer, for The Bible states, “One shall put a thousand to flight, two, ten thousand.”
    God’s Word is truth!!!
    “lf my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face, then will l hear from heaven. I will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
    PPRAY! PRAY!! PRAY!!!
    “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

      How can God heal our land if he don’t get rid of the stubborn and wicked ones. We pray but do we specified how we want our Country healed? We pray for peace, protection, justice ect. Let God clean our country, whatever way he cleans the criminal or prospective criminals should be OK with us.

    Lack of adequate home training, plus ignorance coupled with a lack of education, fast life, easy money, envy seems to be the order of the day. Education education and more education is needed.

    I can not say poverty because there are millions of people in the world who are poor …and still do not resort to crime.

    It is now clearly obvious. The government has lost control of security, safety and law and order in the country. I am not saying that the government has caused what is going on but they have lost the ability to control it. The line here is fine but significant one.

    This is always a mandate of a government to keep crime down and they have failed largely due to inattention, failure to listen to ideas and to act appropriately thinking that the solution is a political one and lies in the hands of cabinet. Nonsense as time and events have exposed them. The relevant minister has tremendous homework to do as he cannot in all consciousness feel comfortable with the extreme lawlessness sweeping the land. If you add to that the increasing pile of unsolved cases coming back to back Helen is in dire straits.

    Guess in the next 10 years there will be a shortage of young men. Young men need to pray and make peace with one another. Forgive and shake hands. Always keep in touch with your minister for jobs, whether it’s short or long term or create a job with your skills. Start small. One love πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased. It’s irrefutable that young black males, in St. Lucia, are fast becoming an endangered species. The entire country – government, opposition, private sector, religious bodies, civic organizations and all citizens and residents should declare war on crime. It’s critically important that government provides sound leadership on this issue. The government’s reaction and leadership on this very worrisome matter is very pedestrian. There is a dire need to gather intelligence about the importation of these illegal guns and ammunitions and plug these porous borders. Guns are much too prevalent on the streets. Mr. PM , there is a need for proactive crime fighting policies. Stop sitting idly by and watch your people being slaughtered.
