        The concept of “duality” is a pantheistic concept that claims that creation is God with God, FIRSTLY…. There is only two entities existing in the universe…CREATION which by nature is CREATION…… and CREATOR (GOD) who by nature is CREATOR….The nature of a thing cannot change, thus CREATION cannot be the CREATOR (GOD), and the CREATOR (GOD) cannot be CREATION, thus man who is CREATION is NOT , and CANNOT be CREATOR (GOD)

        SECONDLY the issue of man doing good or bad is an issue of the knowledge content of the mind, man can only do good when God dwells in the heart through the Faith of Christ (Knowledge of God), but once the mind is absent of the Faith of Christ (Knowledge of God), it would thus be absent of God, and result in bad actions……NOTE ( The presence of one is the absence of the other, thus cannot coincide at the same time)……. WRONG KNOWLEDGE = WRONG ACTIONS…RIGHT KNOWLEDGE = RIGHT ACTIONS ……

        CONTROL THYSELF !!

    Condolences to the families directly affected by this continued insanity. The Private Sector and the rest of Civil Society have to vigorously and frequently agitate for practical measures to be put in place, by government, to subdue this seemingly never-ending spate of homicides. The perpetrators of these heinous crimes are demonically wicked. The government’s response or non-response to this spate of butchery is painfully distressing. Lucians should put their party affiliation aside, come out in their unprecedented numbers, demonstrate throughout the whole of Castries, to send a clear and unambiguous message to the powers that be that the vast majority of the people are totally fed up with their inaction. Enough is enough!

    Government can’t be blamed for these incidents. It is you me and everyone else. We have a responsibility, and do we act on it ? No we don’t. Changing legislations won’t make a difference. We know the perpetrators and hold silence. Arming the police won’t make a difference nor will it stop the happenings. Can anyone few hold the country hostage to their whims and fancy? That will happen if you allow it. What have you done and or is doing to change things. The change begins with you.

      Who says Government can’t be blamed! They are the biggest purporters of tribalism and hate. If you are not on my side then you are to be downtrodden. Additionally, if there are no policy direction then they must be blamed and oh, by the way, Hurricane Allen did say that he “will make St. Lucia safe.”

      OMG it’s so frusatrating to read these comments saying the government doesn’t need to bare blame. It is the role of the government to provide security for its citizens! It is insanity to read comments saying that the government should not be held accountable and that people should just not commit crime. Why not just conclude these statements with a call to abolish all laws of the state then? It’s this type of complacency that allows these sort of crimes to continue. At this point the crime wave is out of control, I don’t care for party affiliations, but the murder rate has DOUBLED and people are still saying can’t blame the government? At this point any and every measure should be established; minimum penalties for fire arm possession, increased policing, implement new divisions within the police department, hold off on fixing whatever road and open up a new criminal investigative department with a fully operational forensics lab…anything! They need to do something and not just remain mute while the ignorant populace says oh we can’t blame the government. How foolish and gullible can people be? St. Lucia is a TINY island, and I know someone will comment and say crime is everywhere n blah blah blah, St. Lucia had a murder rate of about 33 for 2017, Chicago-the famous American warzone had a murder rate of about 24 for 2017. Maybe that will help put things in perspective and shed light on the direction the country is headed while we blindly sit and hold dear our party affiliations.

      1. We are the government

        But ultimately the blame comes down to us. We put a select few to represent us. We have to be blamed for allowing these representatives to be so laid back in their jobs.

      The year 2018 has arrived with the St. Lucia police investigating, possibly, the last two homicides of 2017 after the bodies of two males were discovered in Cantonement, Vieux Fort on Sunday night, Dec. 31.

      According to reports and law enforcement sources, the first victim was discovered around 9 p.m. in a parked vehicle with gunshot wounds to the upper body, and died several hours later in hospital.

      The second body, also with gunshot wounds, was discovered later on in the same area where the first body was discovered, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

      It is not yet confirmed whether the victims are locals or non-nationals.

      Police believe the incident/s occurred around 8 p.m.

      Unofficially, these deaths bring to 60 the number of homicides recorded in 2017.

    January 1, 2018 at 10:52 am

    Nobody but the individuals who partake in these brutal, heartless and selfish acts are to be blamed. However when we have people claiming that we must reach 60 homicides for the year gone not understanding that the tongue is very powerful and we need to take heed of what we say and wish for
    You don’t know who will be the next victim .

    Don’t be an idiot. First of all what “white God”? that comment alone shows you have no intelligence and are just a slave in your own right. Secondly you’re arguing with people who may never have said crime was Kenny’s fault. So once again you’re just a waste. And lastly if in fact someone did believe it was one person’s fault, any intelligent person would see now that it’s a bigger issue than just party and government and should try to work to fix it. Your parents should have just aborted you and save the world the pain of your life

    I have totally had it with this most ASININE argument that government is not responsible for crime. Only a docile mind would absolve government from its most important and sacred duty, the security of its citizens, residents and visitors. Government CANNOT totally eradicate criminal activities but it can and should put measures in place to reduce crime to manageable or negligible levels. Japan hardly has any gun related homicides. The Japanese government has policies, strategies and measures in place to combat criminal activities, particularly gun crimes. It is people like those with this fallacious notion that government bares absolutely no responsibility for crime, gives the government succor in doing little or nothing to fight this scourge. You, who perpetuate this myth, are complicit in these homicidal acts. You are certainly part of the problem and not the solution. Re-educate yourselves. Just weary of your preposterous line of argument.

    Again; The people plead the one and only thing government has to do , and which should be blamed for is A fully working active laboratory or department responsible for forensic tests.
    Put things in place you both parties! The people cry.

    Let us now once and for all, every one get on board let is now call out to who so ever is able to voice to get this message out,let us match, speak out, take control, stand United for our children sake. Please take heed you Brothers and sisters reading!

    Japanese have a totally different mindset, cultivated over long period of time. We like to compare ourselves to them but if we were asked to live such structured and disciplined lives in the various aspects including work, leisure and the use of cell phones in public etc. there would be a national rebellion!!
