  1. If we suppose that all of you are right on the subject of crime, that in itself would lead to more crime. Everyone is either ratcheted up in politics or too tied up in crime themselves. according to the best sources the origin of crime is tied up in poverty, lack of opportunities and inequality, and as far as I can see all of them lead to the other. Do we have money? No we don't; as the lack of money is the common denominator in all these problems. Even the basic such as funding our police and justice system seems to elude us because of our poverty.

    So what do we need to do in such a case?
    I guess try to get richer.
    Does that happen overnight?
    No.
    But can we wait or have some patience?
    I doubt.
    Why?
    Because of politics.

    So politics may be the single biggest issue which prevents us from arriving at a census, jus as with everything else.

    My conclusion: Politics is destroying our country not crime.

  4. Everything is politics. Pray for the youngsters, instead of talking politics in my head. Parents need to train their young men from a very young age to pray and work for what you want instead of robbing and killing for things that do not belong to them. God bless our beautiful island.

    • It happened in the US where a gunman even shot a congressman. These people are more VIP than the PM of St. Lucia, they even have their own police force. So who is immune from world violence? Don't let your ignorance mess with your head.

  8. Whow. This crime situation is out of hand. I leave in St. Lucia and I did say St. Lucians make the biggest mistake of their lives by voting this man Chastanet. Yes he is not the one doing it but he has the power in his hands to change and amend the crime laws. Awah not a word not word from this empty man. His campaign was Kenny Kenny cannot deal with the crime but I will and I will make St. Lucia safe. Lol Chastanet where the hell are u to deal with the crime.

    • So you're saying Chastanet or the police can stop people from committing crime. No matter the punishment crimes will be committed. What we need is better trained, better equipped and all around better police officers to solve crimes. Consequence is what those animals understand. Give them some serious consequences. That can only happen if they are caught and prosecuted. And you know about the consequences of Kenny opening his behind to the Americans. A police force that is now afraid to act. Place was dead quiet after restore confidence because the criminals were afraid.

      • You said "Yes", Hurricane Chastenet will bring down crime rate . . . and voted for him. You were fooled. You blamed Kenny and LaCorbinere for not being able to halt crime and you voted for the Hurricane. So yes, my friend, we are asking the Hurricane to cash-in what he has promised. We were not fooled!

      • Police can only do damage. In order to prevent all this negative behavior parents, teachers and the country's leaders need to take a stand to invest in the future of their youth. Young people who are occupied in sports or in other extracurricular activities like music, church chorals, dance groups, mentorship programs etc, are always less violent. IDLE HANDS ARE THE DEVIL'S WORKSHOP. So when we fail to guide our youth, give them positive role models, or allow them to have motivating programs we fail them.
        We fail our youth. As parents we need to take the time to teach and set examples. Don't wait for police to set them straight, it is our job to prepare them to be good people in society. Train them up from young.
