  1. Those idiot politicians do not have the foresight to figure out that the illegal gun ownership law does not deter the criminals. Whenever one is faced with such situations, step one is to increase the penalty. The idea is to have the criminals poop in their pants just thinking about if they are caught. We have had too many years of this man's incompetence. What a shame.

  2. That's the same area the local man of Soufriere suspected the gangs were starting. Soufriere has the most history man come on people! Our people and it's visitors need to be safe on the streets and in their homes. Thanks to police officers. Keep up the good work.

  3. I thought that the penalty for gun charges was mandatory jail time of 7 years if im not mistaken...so why is it that these culprits always seem to get off either with little or no time at all?!?!?

    • because they always have a sad story to give the magistrates when they reach at court and the magistrates would believe their lying ass and exercise discretion.

  5. Good job by the Police. Now the Courts need to start coming down VERY HARD on individuals who are found with illegal guns, weapons. They need to send a very strong message this will not be taken lightly. Being hardly anyone spends a long time in prison for illegal weapsons possession, the young guys who use it for criminal activities will continue to do so. Yet, a law-abiding person who applies for a gun permit for protection will get denied.
