    It is so easy to pray. Prayers and having faith is something that is needed. However it is not the only thing that can help us right now. We need to take a step back as Lucians and discuss the real issue. Why has the crime rate gone up so rapidly in St. Lucia? What can we do to solve this problem?

    I know it is very easy to blame to government just as it is easy to pray. Let us ignore our politicians for once and discuss how we can take our country back.

      Looshians stand up! Demonstrate for police assistance from abroad. Our police which seems to be in need of being deeply cleaned from the inside, needs help from the US, England and any other country. Our police is a bunch of burocrats without military skills and probably with an agenda .

    No preventative measures, no proper investigative measures as police lack good training and support services, manpower lacking. Crime fighting plan a mystery. Just if a perpetrator is caught the court system is snail pace. So deterrents are almost all nil.

    I suspect the days when there is no criminal activity is when the criminals decide to take a time off.to rest or sharpen their act. So sad.
