  2. Pure bull sh--. A simple march won't resolve the issue of crime in St Lucia. Let's stop the papishow and take a different approach to solving crime.

    • Prayer? You negroes need to stop looking toward the BS the white man has used to enslave you for the past 500 years. This has nothing to do with God. Japan is nearly devoid of the Christian God yet the murder rate is pretty much non existent in a country with 127 million people. Iceland has many Christians and many atheists and the murder rate is pretty much non existent. A country of 325,000. Two contrasting societies with the same story.

      People need to be held accountable. IF a politicians gets elected into office on a platform of solving crime and he/she doesn't, they should be taken to task. Police commissioner should be fired as well. City police only patrol when cruise ships are in port. The police don't give a sh!t about locals. Just take a stroll through town. You see all sorts of infractions happening right next to police. Do they take any actions or fine anyone. Nope. Only two weeks ago I was driving along Brazil street. 3 vehicles parked in a what was clearly a no parking area causing all sorts of traffic problems. I saw a cop passing by. He watched the situation. I asked him if he was going to ticket the people. His response: he doesn't have his book. Walked off, traffic problems persisted.

      This country is a free for all. The rule of law only applies to a select few. Look how quickly that guy got that girl arrested for these pics. How many times have such pics been released here with no consequence? When you hold office the cops act while it takes the police hours to show up when the common man reports a break in. Ultimately it is our fault. We put party ahead of country. We accept the same nonsense time and again. Still can't think for ourselves and continue to be slaves.
