    St. Lucians are becoming numb to homicides. This is very disconcerting. If there isn’t any expression of outrage after these shootings then the country is in serious trouble.

    Redmealybud, your response to my comments is completely baffling. Have you lost your sanity? I did not comment about any solution to murder cases even though that’s a monumental issue. I think your comprehension skills are severely limited.
