  8. Don't blame who is responsible for addressing crime. Don't blame who gets paid to see that our lives are protected and we have a fuctioning Justice system. A functioning system would ensure that criminals are not only arrested and released but they will be convicted based on forensic evidence. No heavy reliance on persons as witnesses where their lives are under CONTINUED threat from bad boys.

    DON'T BLAME WHO IS RESPONSIBLE, BLAME ME.

  10. Every single day it's the same thing. As parents we need to keep our children off the street, have them indoors before nightfall. Of all the things that a 15 year old should be going through being shot should not be one of them. May God wrap his healing hands on this youth and provide comfort to his family and friends especially his mother. We need to take back our country from those who believe that a life of crime is better than on honest life. Lord, my prayer for today is that we become the loving and peaceful, God-fearing nation that you intend St.Lucia to be.

  12. Instead of putting the innocent citizens at risk why not enclse a cricket fied and have bullet proof shields 5x 5 see thru slots but they swing up or down at 15 second intervals spaced 10 second run sideways of each other. Object of this gangland arena mortal shoot shout games. A purse determined by paid viewers paid to winner of each one on one shootout- online or live as rival gang members attempt to shoot each other as they duck dive run to each shield for safety in alloted time and clips.
