  3. This story seem a little bit sketchy to me. When something is too good to be true it usually is. A two year old could have made up that story. We don't have all the details so this story is incomplete.

  7. I am not judging but why would a salesman of a prominent business unless it is his business be going home with this amount of money. Why would he risk his family's safety and was it coincidence that the thieves struck on that day.

    The business obviously failed to secure its property adequately but maybe it is insured. The business should invest in a cash transfer security which might cost less than the life of a man with family or anybody whatsoever.

    It is not about pointing figures but this should be investigated thoroughly.

  11. How are St. Lucians so quick to destroy the reputations of their brethren without any evidence or knowing the circumstances? Without even knowing the person too. Ironically, these are the same people who wouldn't ask any questions if their unemployed son came home with a motorcycle. I rather suspect that they are jealous that they were not part of the heist because we do have a culture of criminality you know.

    We need to be more careful when expressing opinions online.
