    • What a stupid ass comment. Yes there are major shortfalls but the officers are not to blame. An officer can only operate within the parameters of his/her training and resources available to them. The problem is with the wider picture - resources, training, forensics, government support, judicial support and most importantly, support and cooperation from the community as a whole.

  6. When criminals are emboldened they don't just hurt each other, they attack the innocent people also.
    The authorities need to show them that they don't run this country.
    We all have to come together.

  7. It's for all these reasons I don't support free movement of criminals among Islands, CIP, DSH. We must secure our own before we add to the burden .

  8. Them fellas have no mercy, how much longer until the kidnappings start. You telling me that happening at 3 p.m. in the afternoon, time we start setting traps for these criminals.

    Officers watch bait car and start doing some bait cars around these areas and catch them fellas. Right now the criminals are being very innovative. Claiming they working with Lucelec, now they claiming they are police officers investigating in your neighborhood.

    We need to get inventive to catch these hungry dogs, a hungry man go kill anybody for some bread to it. Thank goodness they didn't chop the woman, but what about when it's the next one. Papishow, and don't tell me they don't have money for bait cars. Just take any old car and them salops will try to steal it, they more desperate to rob and steal than to write an application for a job.

    If our young men put as much effort in applying themselves in a skill or trade that they take scouting your house and your goods they would have an abundance of viable skills.

  10. We simply not ready yet as a country. Thanks God it was only the car. By now the Police is supposed to put this together because the car was recovered in Jackmel. Now what happen in Jackmel at the weekend 3 murders. The police now need to ask for all what they need from the government to do their job more efficiently. We must as a people to support them, but there are times they can really play the capital A letter because of their behavior. Meaning abuse if authority.

  11. ...unfortunately no one will be, "police are investigating"...bullyshit; there MUST be DNA left in that car.

    • Yes their maybe but where will it be tested

      (16)(2)
    • idiot police hater everything blame de police.

    • Just look at the kinds of individuals that join the police force. Look at their academic records. A good indicator of discipline and intelligence. Now ask the obvious question. Are we expecting more from the police than they can deliver?

      (6)(3)
    • For DNA to be tested they need a functioning Forensic Lab and you also need a suspect whose DNA would have to be compared against what may be found in the vehicle.
      Fingerprints are very effective but you need a facility to compare fingerprints and of course a fingerprint database.
      Do we have a working forensic lab?
      Do we have a fingerprint database?
      For sure the Police aren't the ones preparing our yearly budgets.
