    I feel for this man and his family this must be so painful. I pray for Gods strength to deal with your lose. I am disappointed however in the people who may have seen something and the police as well. At 3 pm in the afternoon in this area nobody saw anything?

      They are conveniently blind. What goes around comes around and one day witnesses to this criminal act will ask the public for help when one of their loved ones is a victim of a hit and run incident.

    That only shows the weakness of depending on eye witnesses. Law enforcement in the progressive world have long circumvented that. They rely on science and technology.

      Police men are lazy…most businesses in Rodney Bay has surveillance cameras. With a little bit of effort they could determine if any business camera captured the accident.

    No witnesses?

    No surveillance camera footage?

    Who are they trying to mamaguy?

    Once again the RSLPF lives up to it very unfortunate reputation that makes it somewhat of a little-mentioned laughing stock within the law enforcement community within CARICOM nations. That reputation being that they are corrupt, ineffective, and lacking discipline. Apparently it’s because of one fundamental problem — a fundamentally flawed recruitment and training process.

    And, one more reason, despite record levels of visitors, that travel advisories for St. Lucia exist in many western countries while firearms pour in from Venezuela and rampant money-laundering from the Middle East continues to occur.

    The conduct of the RSLPF helps render our nation the ‘banana republic’ that it remains today.

    God bless.
