Hilaire Highlights Need For ‘Complementary’ Social Interventions To Deal With Crime

Castries South MP, Dr. Ernest Hilaire, has advocated ‘thinking out of the box’ in the battle against crime while highlighting the need for social interventions to complement other measures against societal problems.

Hilaire, currently Acting Prime Minister while Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre attends the CARICOM Summit in Suriname, commented to reporters on Monday.

“I am one person who believes that we should be thinking out of the box. There are some very traditional approaches when societies are faced with high levels of crime and threats on citizen security. You want tougher laws. They want more rigid law enforcement and you would focus a lot on those issues and we kind of downplay the significance of social interventions,” he explained.

“I am one person who believes strongly in having complementary social interventions to deal with social problems and not always deal with them through legislation and the traditional law-enforcement and other forms of enforcement,” Hilaire told reporters.

  1. Is this the guy St. Lucians elected to represent them, and now acting P.M.? Hiliere always comes across as someone with his Phd to Snow people with so much verbiage, and is as boring as a broken Record. Peo, let me say this:- That trio, the unholy trinity in the cabinet, will/and is the downfall of St. Lucia. I don’t have to name them, but at this turning point in our history, the records will not speak well of governance in St. Lucia. I remember St. Lucia before there was an elected government – it was a nominated one – then was the first SLP and I was a member; all was not too bad, but people there is one very much an unworthy element in the cabinet, and ther is cause for concern; with him is Fing as useless as a dummy in today’s world. The world today needs/requires fress blood, new thinking, not the crap Hiliere comes with – its yours, not mine so deal with it. In all you do for the immediate future – find the Lord God and Pray – it will be darder and darker if you don’t. Be Blessed.

  2. Dr. Hilaire brilliant idea, love it. but what about the Marigot road you said Rayneau would repair. How long will Marigot people drive in that dilapidated road. We are in need of good roads.

  5. Hilarie, you’ll need to start with you’ll behavior in the house. The way you speak in public. The hate you are ending out there. You cannot continue to talk with 2 sides of you mouth. Modify your behavior. You, Richard and King need to be sent you your room to think about you’ll behavior. When you hard the chance you should really have knocked King our at the King and Queen if
