  3. What else can we do as a youth? The ministers don't care about us they only care about their pockets. The police force react quickly for drugs but take time robbery... So many people leaving school with all kind of degree and still no work! The rich keep getting richer cause they check for each other. Who start the war among the youth? Who goes to the ghetto and ask the youth what they want in life? Some people work all their life and never travel cause the money is just enough to survive. So please let's not say get a job like there are jobs waiting for everyone out the be thankful that u got one so u can buy a phone or PC to read ur news on fb............ Big up (sno) st Lucia news online!

  5. Thou shall not kill.
    Thou shall not steal.
    People if urll dont have anything to say pls don't comment. If urll don't know the guy pls don't comment. For those who know let the whole world know them for wat they are. People in bishops gap are pleading for their life....holding people up.....IS THAT RIGHT. Residents have to run for their life. Of course we all have parents and they will be heart broken but if u know ur child has been doing wrong pls cry silently, we'll respect u for that. PARENTS PLS DON'T GIVE UP ON UR KIDS.

  7. Well lately Marchand is having a slate of robberies early morning or at nights when individuals are going or coming from work. Not saying He may have or may not have been part of it. But hope the individuals doing it take hid because they can just hit on the wrong person. The Police are aware of it but it seems like there no Station at Marchand since you never see the Police patrolling or feel their presence in the area, like when the Station was opened some years ago, when you would find police officers patrolling on feet and in the vechicle

  12. Was just about to say that, that means u know something. How do u know this young boy robbed anymore. Father put a hand. Unbelievable. Sad another young man gone. This is someone's child. Not cool at all. No one values the one thing they have ,their LIFE.

  13. Nameless how do you know he robbed someone? Just asking cause I don't know.
    I wonder how it is so easy for someone to take another life and still live their own like nothing happened. Funny thing though at the end of it we are still called upon for judgement at Gods door step.

  14. May he rip, but these youths need to find themselves a job and stop robbing people. I guess his death will deter other would be criminals like himself, from robbing people.

    • Nothing to do with job. They need to change their damn mindsets from guns, drugs, tiffing and violence to something less damaging to their brains.
