    • I can tell you’re not an advocate of the death penalty. It’s been proven that countries with the death penalty have low crime rates. The death penalty is a deterrent. You sit there and complain, What if one of your family members were to get killed by someone? I bet you would be singing a different tune.


    • I couldn't get over the terrible grammar in his comment. I don't even know what u were talking about.


  2. At a political meeting Chastanet dress like a priest with holy water, saying that it would destroy all evil in the country.

  4. Bring back hanging take these crimes more serious than pound of weed cases..these murderers get into prison to live a good life and we are out there working hard to feed them 3 meals a day thats bulls**t ...Kosh Nige hold strong blood...sympathy to the family and RIP Randy...


  5. So after you'll killed him. All of you are walking with you'll cutlasses and saying if its war the family wants they will get? Are you guys that ignorant and self centred? Dont you know how hard it it to loose someone close to you? I pray to god that my family dont do nothing stupid to you'll but the almighty will make you all suffer


  6. Stop complaining Lucians. The death penalty is the only answer. Hanging, electric chair or firing squad. Give the criminals a choice of how they want to die. Problem solved.


  7. When i heard the name I was praying that it was not you but the photo confirmed it was really you. I pray that those hoodlums who took your life senselessly will rot in hell, soon very soon. Karma has a way of dealing with that when earthly justice can't. May your soul rest in peace my dear Randy. Theirs is behind!


  8. People believe or not this is something that has been going around for those who have been killed in the pass so don't put the blame on politics
