  1. Don't be an idiot? Human rights is not about ordinary people taking each others' lives its about the government being held accountable for taking people lives. These are rights to be derived from government actions only. The right of the victim extends to the government doing all it can to bring their killers to justice. AND justice is not meted out by the police it is meted out by the Courts. Anytime justice is meted out by any different body other than the Courts it is considered as extra-judicial (outside of justice) unless the Courts subsequently adjudicate on it (like in an inquest) and judge the action to be right. But that is after the fact. So talking about Mary Francis is an idiots way of saying that he does not understand what is human rights. But if you don't understand something don't pretend like you know. Do some research and don't do margee with yourself.

  2. We need a special gang unit within the police department to handle gang activity on the island. Also, all persons who participate in gang activity are considered the enemy of Saint Lucia.

Hildren rignt stuff we all know what is right and wrong zo if we instill good habits we aught to reap positive lets us all invest better parenting. In our children and stop loving them too much for all the wrong reasons so the problem is not the police or the pm but we parents lets start with us each one just see how much a difference ot will make asking our children to put down the guns put down the weapond have a peace treaty. There's an old proverb that says "if you want to clean up the world dont complain just pick a broom sweep your front yard and the other neighbors sweep theirs and before you know it the entire world is clean.

  4. Mary Francis made the statement saying that police are killing innocent people ,when we citizens of this country no that the people that were short an killed by police were all murderer's and criminals now the police are the criminals? Question do u think that police have been killing innocent people in this country, now where is Mary Francis to advocate the rights of people for taking each others life in this country and now we are calling on the police,this is what the police are asking of the citizens of this country is to forward with information of those engaging in eligibility ,now I am asking for restore confidence as a citizen of this country

    • How do you know that the people who were shot and killed by police were criminals? Unless you were rolling with them. Killing people because you think (by way of hearsay) that they are criminals is wrong. Even killing a criminal unless caught in the act and in preventing them from committing a crime is also wrong, nobody has to tell you that. In the absence of the rule of law anybody can kill anybody claiming that they are a criminal. Would you put your total trust in the police in selecting who should be killed? Can't police be criminals too? Thats why there are Courts to decide punishments and it is not up to the police or any citizen to administer punishment or decide who should be punished.

  5. Where are the guns coming from? Who's bringing them in? Our policemen have to step up their plan and game to out smart the bad boys who's tarnishing St.Lucia name. It breaks my heart to see the young man loosing his eye sight for what? Can we solve our problems without a weapon? Where is the LOVE for our brothers and sisters after all we are all St.Lucian. How can you all sleep knowing you kill or hurt someone? I hope the young man pull through,and they arrest his cousin and make him serve a long sentence in prison.

  8. So the South is hot now rivaling Castries for 2019 shaping up to be a banner year. When will this PM come out and make a definitive statement on crime. Question Where is the UWP crime plan initiative ? Answer they don't have one. The Bajan PM has MORE BALLS than he does. He should never had open his shabbin posterior "I will make st Lucia safe again" and can't deliver on it he can't even address it to date like this is not second biggest obstacle facing the citizens of st Lucia and the sattin sissys are all lining up like ducks to show their confidence IN WHAT I ASK.

    • You idiot everything is the government you all sit on your lazy backsides robbing and killing law abiding citizens who work hard to accomplish their goals and keep saying it is the PM fault. Nigger you all want everything delivered to you all on a silver platter sucker get a life. The PM owe you jack he doesn't even know if people like you exist,he is too busy trying to repair the massive damage left by looser like you go figure it out. Get an education as poor as St.Lucia is there is something for you to do if you seek you will find you lazy bum stop being jealous of the PM he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth he is not trying to reap us off you take being an azz hole over the top dummy.

    • Well said ! She have more balls and brains of course he out of touch all he concern with is turning VF into Vegas borrowing and spending what we can't afford and just digging St Lucia in a financial bottomless pit they don't know the headaches that come with it they don't call it sin city for nothing. In their dysfunctional out of touch mindset Its a malwee so you not going to hear him or any minister say anything as far as they are concern they can kill their one another just don't touch the tourist we cant have CNN or the Daily Mirror on our backs.

    • Nobody has the formula to make anywhere safe again. That formula lies in everyone of us in being our brothers' keeper. If you want to take all campaign rhetoric and turn it into facts you are more of an idiot. There are things that are within the control of politicians and there are things that are not. A kid can make that distinction and can figure out what cannot so don't insult your own intelligence be less than a kid.
