    • Castries Fisherman, for the purpose of elucidation, I trust that you’re making reference to their court trials as opposed to their bail hearing, which is a totally different ball game, altogether, when it comes to the severity and harshness of the court decisions. It’s something that I noticed that even some senior police officers and the Minister responsible for Justice don’t seem to be making a clear distinction between.

  1. Anyone caught in possession of a gun should not be allowed back on the streets until they give specific details as to how they came into possession of such a weapon.

  2. Why are we bailing guys with guns,in the first place.Do they have any excuse to why they need a cannon in their waist.Did they purchase the gun in SS,Who and how facilitated the purchase,there is a net work all set up cant we get any lead ?

  3. One of the intresting things is that they love the bails sistem,the fantastic amount of cash that comes in,to the coffers,and its all cash.Its a great bussines the law dosent matter to much,who cares, let them go so we can catch them next month,and collect more cash..They are all in its like our trafic tickets
