  3. I was a couple of feet away from the incident and what happened Was, the one the police shot and killed actually was revelling at the jou' vert like everyone else with his pistol in his back pocket. The ones who engaged tried to take Or maybe steal that pistol off of him rather than alert the cops who were just a few feet away. Their plan was unsuccessful. The ones who got shot were innocent and was not involved in the incident. Why come to a public activity with a gun on u? Especially with the number of officers on the job.....and then use it in their presence and thought u were gonna escape after committing such acts of atrocities/terror. I saw on the news that he was a skillful boxer, but don't they teach discipline in that sport? And if ur so good with ur hands, why do u feel u needed to carry a firearm to a jou' vert jump up? Smh. That boy made some poor choices with his life and paid a hefty price for it. It's sad to hear someone with his potential went out like that.....

    • He had the choice of walking away or even better checking the police. But that wasn't his style he was a shooter and he loved firing shots around people with everyone seeing is him that do it. This young man has been bursting shots in Castries not now without a care in the world for who sees him or how his name is mention all he cared about was I'm bad. Well my boy badman all meet the end either by the cops or other bad guys.

    Time they clear up some more of the garbage on our streets. Good job to the RSLPF on the quick response. Get your counseling and get back out there!

    Why is in public spaces and at public events these clowns want to have their beefs. Go and shoot each other by the Gros Islet Cemetery.

  12. Those guys were emboldened by the IMPACS debocle created by that autocratic and vindictive Kenny Anthony. The police were already making good strides by eliminating them one by one. We need to look into having the second operation restore confidence to kill some more of those low life.

    (15)(13)
    • You do know the the Operation restore confidence was the root of the IMPACS problem right?

      (2)(1)
    • I totally agree with you that under kenny's administration these thugs were being eliminated one by one but when the corrupt gov't condones such violence then what do u expect. we need to take back our beautiful country b4 it's too late. a crack down on the thugs should start now with the assistance of foreign forces.

    • You see everybody knows how much he loves bursting that gun in crowds with countless witnesses and not giving a damn so it eh nothing new he did that morning. The only difference he didn't count on shots knocking back and thank you it was from the cops instead of a badman.

  21. I wonder why he open fire in the crowd? Was he being robbed by some persons in the crowd and took out his gun to defend himself? Anyways another bad boy dead. When will they realise they will all be killed early in life. Anyways his choice. Just glad I was in my bed. So Mary Francis plz come on tv and asked that there be an investigation into this killing. The police just killed another known criminal. OH BTW Kenny plz run to the US embassy again. I hear the Police STOP carnival in G Islet later as a result.
