  1. We need the Black Squad headed by the Terminator

    • We need this we need that. What we need is for Lucians in the diaspora in Texas and Broward County to stop sending down the guns. St Lucia does not have a gun factory.

  2. You swear as if uwp is the cause of the shootings ,grow up and see the reality of society

    • Well the UWP should have remembered that they should not politicize crime on platform. It was Chastanet who said he had solution on platform. They blamed Kenny for all crime when they were in opposition ..now the shoe is on the other foot ...it is painful !

    • When the Labour Party was in Government it was Kenny who was sending people to commit crime saying he was doing nothing. Chastanet promised to curb it and make St. Lucia great again, what has happened. When UWP in office you all saying do not politicize crime, Really where are we going, The hypocrisy of it all, as Chastanet and his crew has disappointed the masses, surely not me, as I saw the lies and the deceit and the desire to get richer at the expense of the poor. So think about it, listen to news and the politicians when they talk and further read the papers. Choops!!

  3. The green dpp needs to get a move on it. Get impacs over and done

  4. Hermangild is the u.w.p's puppet .. cant do anything about the present crime situation .. the police force needs to be re empowered and impacs dealt with so that those damn criminals could be taken off the streets ( permanently) , never to return into civil society. We need the police and as long as impacs hovers over our heads there won't be much that we can do .. what a shame!! Hermangil?? ..hmmm . I doubt it

  6. Unless we can get Impacs out the way the police will never be effective against crime. The police operates in fear. Mr. Hermingald you all promised to deal with Impacs within the first 100 days and the rest is history.The criminals are emboldened because of that. The Dpp. must move faster than that.

  8. But those who won't care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers.
