  2. Curfews wont work in Saint Lucia, plus we need more cops on the road. Get those useless cops out of their desk and onto the road


  3. If you possess a gun and you're not in law enforcement or licensed, then you should spend the rest of your life in jail, away from the public because you intend to shoot someone, someday.
    Life should be celebrated not taken away, no matter what that Soul has done on Earth. The Creator gives us that Breath of Life and no one has the right to send It back with an incomplete mission.
    I do think that it is now time to bring in curfews to certain parts of the Island, starting with Castries. Hire more Coppers too cuz this shate has to stop.
