  5. Regardless of who was right or wrong, a 17 year old boy is dead. His father is hurting deeply. His mother had to learn this whilst away from the island.

  6. O plz shut up nikk they chose to leave the life so who know how many parents these young guys left crying no matter what age they talk about guns already u know what a 13 yrs old told me shut up if I don’t want shots ringing in my house tonight only because he ask me for a $1.00 and I told him don’t go begging ppl like that

  7. A bunch of u ppl in here claim to be good holy and righteous crime happens every where didn’t God created sin and wasn’t there laws to govern things one day one day wen it hit some of u guys door steps u will really understand wat corruption is justice for one justice for all

  8. All the other countries in the Caribbean are working hard to reduce crime ,they realize what can happen when criminals get out of control. They also realize the negative impact of violent crime on employment levels, safety of citizens and development of other young people who choose not to be involved in such violent crimes. These criminals were not elected to run st Lucia ,so st.Lucian citizens are better off when the police do their jobs.So st.Lucia should try to be first and not last in minimizing violent crime.

    • Lucians so stupid… so the job of the cops is to kill ppl… I hope u run a red light one day and they kill you and your family
