  1. Good Morning!

    I would like your help with getting a matter sorted out. You recently posted an article regarding the Vieux-Fort shooting and someone is posting using my handle Pastor Gwen. I am Pastor Gwen and the comment made regarding this young man was not made by me or is reflective of my feelings about the incident. I am requesting removal of the comment because of the work I do in the community. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. I am concerned for my safety and it would provide me with peace of mind.

    Thanks and I will await your response.

  2. Stop the political games. The bullet does not differentiate between colors. Stop the ignorance for once. Bullets can ricochet and hit unintended targets of which everyone is a potential target . This is no shit going on there.

  3. I’ll say lock both families up see who will take jail for their kids . Because fir all you know these lads was probably the bred winners at a certain level and no one will talk. Some family members are well aware of situation like this and we’ll never try to correct it and when it is blown out if proportion the expecting the foolice to dispense justice

  4. The fish starts rotting from the head. you lucians who voted in this criminal cabal without a care should hang your heads in shame. the people get the government they deserve. there is more crime barely halfway through the year than previously. the criminals are emboldened. they in charge and everyone must bow. lucians you made corruption, now you gotta live with it.

  5. i love ghetto vigilante justice! why kill such an innocent, kind hearted young man? sorry SSU, let the ghetto sort this one out. JUSTICE FOR JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Where is the outrage from KDA with what’s happening in Vieux Fort. It’s time for these drug lords in Vieux Fort to be brought to Justice. But wait! Will that ever happen when he is being represented by whom? Find out which law firm represents “the hand of plantain”. Find out which law firm has been trying to have monies seized from him by the police and in the possession of the Customs department, returned. It’s all a game where money is their only concern, Where the corrupt is being looked out for and protected by the corrupt in authority. What a sad state of affairs in this country. From a destroyed police force to corrupt and inept governments. It looks like we are doomed.

  7. The police is working with the bad boys how can the crimes be stop. People are afraid to speak cause of the dirty cops
