  1. And for goodness sake, Please stop the attacks on tourist It is St.Lucia's major economic life-blood. If it continues the economy will erode.

  2. I haven't been to St.Lucia in 13-years, and all these Homicides occurring now were down at approximately 3 murders a year. It made news for probably months when one person was murdered on the Island. Our young people need to stop trying to copy bigger countries and instead become more creative. There is allot that they can do in difficult times like these: learn trades, go back to school, or start our own business from scratch.... To many murders by youth against youth in St.Lucia..
