And the whole scenario was captured on security cameras.

  2. The manager said the employee has been left traumatized by the incident. He said this is not the first time the bakery has been robbed.

    According to the manager this wasn't the first time this bakery had been broken into. My question for the manager is this: What have your company put in place to protect your staff and to prevent such from happening? Since this wasn't the first time, shouldn't your managing team been more proactive in protecting your business and most importantly your staff? We have seen in the past that CCTV cameras alone don't protect businesses, not if the faces of these unscrupulous individuals have their face covered?
    it is my professional opinion that businesses should look to spend more and do more to protect firstly the lives of their staff and their business. They need to start thinking outside the box. One example where this behaviour would not happened again is to prevent access for anyone to have their hand enter beyond the counter, like it did in this situation. One way in achieving this is to have deeps where the cash in placed in a deep like those used at gas stations and then the item placed there for the customer. That way there will be no form of contact. This is only one form of protection.

  4. First, my sympathy to the young lady. Pointing a gun at someone can traumatize them to an extent that they have everlasting anxiety problems.
    What you saw was terror. I guess Mary & Co are waiting for the White man's to declare it terror. Yes, this is small island states terror. Doesn't security needs dictate that hoodies be outlawed? I can't recall the last time I froze outdoors in St. Lucia. If you have, let us know.

    • Having cameras at the establishment in this case does not lessen the work for the police. Base on the video, the individual's faces were covered and oh the camera would not and cannot uncover their faces. Don't blame the police.

    • The police would have gladly taken them out but Kenny & Co. had to fly over to the US Embassy to run their a** for cheap political points....and looks where we're at now. Our lawmen's hands are tied. Thank you Kenny,

      • What has Kenny and Co, has to do with the robbery which took place? Wasn't it Chastanet who said during his campaigning for the last election that he was going to take care of crime because Kenny did not know what to do? Stop with your bullshit and let us come together as a people and work together to find solution to this problem we as a people face in this country. The crime problem in St. Lucia is not the fault of UWP nor SLP, so stop with that foolishness.
