  1. Yeah right! You got caught stealing the man weed! Try it agin!!

  2. I don't believe any mask man shoot that man , he was on someone property taking nuts without asking permission and he got shot by the owner , the owner probably threaten him not mention his name or else that's y he saying is masked men, that doesn't make sense y would someone put mask to shoot you jus so dts my opinion, sorry gentleman for your pain but speak the truth so the public and police can assist you

  3. To be living your life in constant fear of being robbed, shot, abducted or raped is by no means abundant living in this country. If the CIP programme is to attract the best investors to this country, crime must be effectively controlled by the powers that be. We cannot be pedicuring one foot and at the same time shooting the other. This is a nationwide collective effort and not something left only for the government to do. Though numbers are comparably lower than last year at this time, they can be lower. Plus, we are only halfway through the year.

  4. He was looking for cashew nuts and was shot or he was where he should not be, doing what he should not be doing??? Hmmm

    That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

  6. Down south man say Castries doing so we can do to.smh
