  2. This has many negative effect on not simply your total way of living, however your
    health as well. Put on any required safety equipment and make sure to take the most safe path possible.
    Set with your back flat on the floor and flex one
    leg at a 90-degree angle.

    • You ignorant Why blame Kenny for this. There is no word like blame in the Bible. Man has a chose of freedom. He either choose it of not. God Bless.

      • Yardfowl, you sound like a born or a paid SLP crap shooter. So, why don't you find a nice rumshop to shoot your type of shayte.
        If Kenny makes life harder by doing just about anything that seems will make him win the next election, but people are suffering as a result, some will not be able to cope. They will kill themselves.
        In Japan such people abandon their homes and live under bridges. Others simply commit suicide. Get way past your country-bookey education for a change.

        • So, the person expressed his/her self and for that is a yardfowl? Well, guess what? You are one! And you do sound like a born UWP. You try to analyze something that is far beyond your understanding. Leave that for the "country bookies" to do.

    • It is a joy to leave Saint Lucians in the hands of King Midas in Reverse, the Massa of Saint Lucia and Belambouche. After all, that country bookie as most Saint Lucians is steeped in country bookie ignorance. Negre marrons will learn that the wages of sin is death.

  5. he was with his family earlier and seemed fine. Nothing was out of place and i do believe there needs to be a thorough investigation. not because it was a hanging means suicide was the COD

  6. robotic feelings ur forensic questions are quite pertinent and do lead to the parallel possibility of a modus operandi for homicide.

    However, we need to examine StLucia's colonial heritage of "stiff upper lip" and "children are to be seen and not heard.

    This victim most definitely belongs in that era of "keeping it all bottled in " like a real "Victoria Regina" MAN!

    One blogger stated that he was "RESERVED" from family- A quality that was desirable in his youth-

    Ours is a "banana republic" hierarchy. Ascendancy is steeped in pedigree and dogs do eat dogs and crabs pull down other crabs to get to the almighty top of the heap.

    OUR favorite tools for social assault:Shame, guilt, mapewee replace supportive communication-

    the more to BOX in a victim who needs to REACH OUT!

  12. Apparently he is related to me. Never knew him though. Heard he was quite a reserved man who wasn't close to his extended family. Probably suffered from depression.

  13. True....while we may not have seen him do it....suicide appears to be the easy way out nowadays. Face it: some people just can't handle life these days.

  14. an old man hangs himself on a tree by the beach...ok...before i agree it was suicide...lets review some questions here...how strong was this man...how tall was this tree...what kind of tree was it...was it wet or dry...whats the distance of the ground from his feet in the air upon discovery of the body...did anyone observed footprints or marks near and on the spot...if such marks were seen are they from one person in an identifiable manner...how long is the rope from the tree branch to his neck...was there any supporting items for eg bench chair rock that he could have used to climb on and jump off...or do u think he climbed the tree...how physical was this man in terms of his appearance...(the answer from someone on the scene can tell u straight if it was a suicide or a murder) somehow i cant really drink this as a suicide yet till some of these questions are answered...a man of this age might be too feeble to climb a tree and if he did and jumped off the branch he might have a broken neck...or he had assistance with something under his feet and he walked off and he strangulated himself...

  15. yourl have no clue

    Some of them aren't even close to being depressed far less have mental issues. People open yourl eyes. There's a war thats happening everyday unseen. Ask yourl selves that question sometimes people fight for earthly things all of a sudden on goes insane one dies sometimes it's all demonic but that's none of my business

  16. We are all Gods children because from the time we were conceive God knew us. We do not know ourselves but the one who created us. That is why we have a soul and his spirit is in that soul. The evil one who is in the flesh prompts us to do things contrary to the good spirit. How you communicate with the good spirit prayer. God governs the world but prayer governs god. God knows the heart of every man. In this Era HE IS NOT PLEASED WITH ALOT OF US. pLEASE LET US NOT CONDEMN ONE ANOTHER. JESUS DID NOT DO THAT.

  18. havent you notice hanging is the easiest crime them days, with no way to tie anyone the the crime, no suspect, no evidences. lucia has no special crime unit to really investigate the sense n no database of ppl finger prints. its just the beginning of hanging in lucia, and nothing is being done

  20. There are varying levels of:
    depression
    coping abilities
    critical triggers
    BUT
    the one ingredient that overrides the ability to maintain equilibrium is
    substance abuse that alters our sober normalcy
    BOOZE (heavy reg drinker)-overtime, acts as a powerful central nervous system DEPRESSANT.

    For those who understand uppers an downers (Alcohol acts in much the same way as a major downer.

    Add a habit of binge drinking to some serious real world depression that hovers like a thunder cloud day after day= suicidal ideation with romantic /melancholic fantasy -especially when famous stars like Robin Williams do it too.

  21. A lot of the time, people just need someone to talk too, to take a genuine interest, a kind word. We are all too busy nowadays staring at our cell phones or minding our own business to see the desperation around us.

  31. Friends this could be suicide or someone could have arranged this. It is truly depressing times, and only Jesus can help us in this time. I've suffered from this and suicidal thoughts have come in, but the Lord has been keeping me. So lets just hope many others can trust in the divine power despite their troubles

  34. Suicidal thoughts usually imply mental disturbance, which more often than not go without being noticed . It's sad that the pressures of today's world are causing self loathe. I can only wish condolences to his family memebers and pray that this suicide chain breaks.

  37. Could be the person could be hiding or doesn't want to be exposed for something embarassing, so committing suicide is the only way out that certain people see. People commit suicide for different reasons- losing your house, wife, girlfriend, facing jail time, being embarassed by something they did, etc, etc. And suicide isn't something which is contagious, it's just an easier way out for some people.

  38. Concern suicide cant be contagious.. People fell HOPELESS
    STRESSED OUT DEPRESSED WORTHLESSNESS THEY CANT FIND A WAY OUT OF WHATEVER THEY ARE FACING.WHY one might asked.
    Its because some of us dont know our Jesus who can make our night turn to day. We do need a wake up call in St.Lucia.

    • It is not all hopeless. It is hopeless when people look to the world to satisfy them. People need to look to the Almighty and call on Him. Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of Yahuah, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
      Yahuah alone can save and sustain us and get us out of any situation. Forget about having big this, and big that. Be humble. Luve humbly. Instead focus on having a clean heart and relying solely on the Most High for everything.

    • I got @ concern's point quite clearly.Hopelessness, stressed out, etc, are reason which causes one to contemplate suicide.When we live in a small island like St Lucia with so many cases of suicide,someone who falls victim to depression, hopelessness etc, it become easier for them to follow the trend and I believe this what happening in St Lucia.

  39. We need to help stop the suicide. It is becoming contagious. Literally it is. Someone could be very depressed and may consider suicide. However, if it is not something that happens often, they may reconsider. If it happens often it will seem ok for me to do too.

    • i understand what u are saying - what if a teen think they have a prob and with so many suicides being mentioned that teen might think its the only way out and BOOM!!!! - GONE!!!!

      people need to know that JAH is within them and not in the sky (fairy-tale) and love them selves from the inside out

  41. People are depressed and have difficulty handling tough times. Instead of spend time on the phone or partying speak to your family members, take an interest in what they do, share your life and happiness.
