    Condolences to the family of the deceased. I hope the two injured persons will survived and make a full recovery. Commendation to the police officers for their alertness and courage. This spate of shootings unfortunately has become a norm. Chastanet use your bully pulping to speak out against this frightening phenomenon and back it up with unrelenting actions. Why do you speak so often and eloquently about tourism development but so deafening silent about crime? Very puzzling indeed!

    Don’t Be Too Surprised Of What’s Happening Because That’s Just The Beginning. This World Has Become Really a Chaos. All I Know GOD Is In CONTROL And That’s Why I’m Not Trouble Nor Worry,Because The God Of Abraham,Issac,Jacob,Elijah,Jonah,Moses,Noah And Jeremiah Is Also Our God. For We Were All Created In His Image And Likeness. So I Have No Need To Fear Or Be Afraid When Our Lord God Almighty Is More Than Able To Take Of Anyone Who Trust And Believe In Him. Our Father Lord God Almighty Is No Respect Of No One. Whosoever Come Unto Him He’ll In No Wise Cast Out. God Will Do What He Say HellH Do. All There’s In Him Is Truth. He Has A Reason To Allowe All What’s Happening. You And I Just Need To Trust God And Follow His Instruction That’s It. It’s Better To Obey Than Sacrifice. If We Ask For Rain Then We Should be Able to Deal With The Mud. What We Sew Is What You And I Reap. Peace Be With You All Who Choose To Walk By Faith And Not By Sight.For Without Faith It’s Impossible To Please…. The FATHER LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

        Shoot in the leg?!?! Really?!?! It’s these very type of crooks that led us to the place where we had to implement Operation Restore Confidence. I say stamp out the scourge before there is a need to amputate a limb.

    Carnival is evil, weather you like this saying or not.
    I Would like to commend our officers for making that very courageous move, which i call: (Dead or alive.) thanks to God you were able to gun down the gun man. I hope that the P.M. and MR; Francis is taking notes. Is time to take a bold stand like Mr. King. Bring back the ORC and the hang man. Forger about your visas man! COUNTRY 1st.

    Carnival was once just a Castries thing. Now almost every district has theirs. Two days of dehydration and intoxication while you almost naked in public. Makes no sense to me.
