  1. Come on ppl there are innocent ppl living there who never trouble a soul we have to realize is different come and go who do their crime I’m sorry for the homeless ppl and happy no one was hurt it can happen to every and anyone of us or our family just my thoughts

    • I am almost 50 and for my entire life I have been hearing bad things about these places. For decades “outsiders” going to those places commit crime and frame the innocent residents huh? Yet the innocent residents never provide the police with information to apprehend those criminals. Those shacks are so close you cant a fart in one without your neighbour hearing so everyone knows what is going on there. Yet its always the outsiders. Baby enough with the bull****. The entire place should’ve burned down. No decent St. Lucia would’ve shed a tear. But soon you will see Sarah Flood on the news talking sympathising. Proving how disconnected politicians are from the population.

      • Giving information to the police can be very dangerous as some officers are in dealings with the criminals

  2. I agree the grave yard should be removed from there cause this location has been the cause of many lives being taken or ruined. It’s also not a place for people to be living at. I am happy that no one got injured but that place hs to be removed.

  3. Most of the people who live in ghetto’s are people who work as security guards and work in the private sector as we are second class citizens who earn 4;25 cents or less Guardsman want people to work for them 12 hour shifts for 51 dollars that is worst than slavery in 2019 it seem like the world has not progress

  5. When you work for the private sectir, its only the ghetto you can afford to live .. Do you think that you can work for 4;25 cents 12 hour shift which adds up to 51 dollars a day with Guardsman Security and own a home, no never you can never achieve nothing in life

  6. WILTON YARD IS A SICK PLACE THE OLDER PEOPLE COVER UP FOR THE CRIMALS BY HIDING DURGS AND GUNS FOR THEM THATS WHY WHEN POLICE GO IN THERE THEY GET NOTHING ALSO THE SO CALL BOSS IS OUT OF JAIL SO THE S*** IS ABOUT TO HIT THE FAN ALL OVER AGAIN HAVE FUN CASTIRES

  7. If we do a research in the last twenty years this must be fire number 205 more or less.Does this serve any purpose,does it reach a conclusion?How many more to come? Its not our culture,most of us take care are carefull when handling,electricity,gas,fire.We love our homes our dwelings all our personal things that we have acquired during our lives,we teach and train our children how to respect and handle matches candles, gas stoves, electrical conections.Now in Wilton Yard,will anything ever change for the better,? if a pig walks out of his mud penn on to a concrete floor,does he become a better pig? It has nothing to do with the EC 4 dollars per hour issue,it has to do with education.Do you have and cause an impact on the comunity were you live? or has the comunity impacted you, over welmed you and dragged you down,to their standards.

  8. The guilty idiot came on TV and said that he left a lit candle and the wind threw the candle on his mattres.I guess this is related to the 43% to the 4.50 EC per hour,most of us light candles for our birthday,others dont use LUCELEC
