  1. He is not the only one, I have seen the police assault vendors on the beach in Rodney Bay and rip there clothes. It made me very angry and made me realise that the police can't be trusted, I was even told vendors have to pay the police to leave them alone. I am a tourist so I do not think St Lucia is a safe place if the police can attack there own people for trying to make a living. I love St Lucia but I am a bit put off by this behaviour.


  2. Its high time they get rid if the stupid officers I'm really sick of den , $750 ? What's that crap ! Smh . Only in Slu


  3. again, making a mockery of our judicial system…how do you deter someone else from committing a similar crime, when bail is set at $750?


  4. $750.00 For assult is the bail set for an officer abusing his power. The court system can make so much money in st .lucia but they dont have the capability of doing so simply because they are all blind. They beed to start charging people more for disrespecting one and other jah.


  5. 750 for each count. Are you freaking kidding me. That is why they feel they are above law. Free a prisoner and sent his ass to jail. Then the others outside will learn.


  6. Salbet I so glad they not making joke with these idiot officers that abuse their authority and think they can get away with it
