  1. ? Don't u think that this young boy should at least been charged or don't u think there should at least be a court case with the police because. For all I know it was reckless driving. And that death wad by don't. U think that he should have at least been charged


  2. Woow cant believe that. She was my friend back home. Life can be unfair. Really unfair. Dont even know how to feel cause the mom of this child is also a friend. Life is messed up. The devil is a liar.


  3. Yes a bicycle can kill you, just imagine if the rider was going down a hill, the speed and the force that came into that person the damage can kill. It's very tragic that a bicycle ride can cause so such pain.
    Lets us as a nation be very cautious when riding our bikes on the island roads. Slow down, be a careful bicycle rider. May he/she rest in peace.
    A safe, peaceful, healthy, and prosperous New Year for all my St.Lucians home and abroad. Peace to all much love.

  4. RIP Renee, it's sad on both party.SNO will publish the teenager's name but when it's the criminal they take long.what about protecting the teenagers identity


    • The teenager is not a suspect and was not arrested. Furthermore, the article was written and distributed by the police force.


    • But to me it is the laws of the land that depending on the nature of the crime or should i say incident it is unlawful to release that info unless the person or suspects are has been officially charged
