    What we need is more prevention, not cure.
    Work with those that can be worked with. Work with the upcoming generation, show them another way out. Push education, work with parent, encourage godly/upright living, hard work.
    Taller fences, bigger dogs, bigger guns, more patrols etc. won't solve the problem. Violence seems to be breeding violence. Create avenues for our young people to express themselves in a constructive manner.
    The Government has a role to play to foster peaceful living in the country, they must have a long-term plan and vision.
    The parents and family have their part to play. The schools have their part to play. The church (no matter what your denomination is) has its part to play.
    All Saint Lucians have to come together, one person can positively affect the lives of many.

  2. Well, Well, Well!

    When hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, Kanye West stated that George Bush does not care about black people. Many folks thought from that point that this shine was the epitome of pro-black and he was praised for saying such. Now let me take the time to enlighten these beasts. George Bush even though he was the President could not act on this tragedy unless he was asked by the governor. The Mayor for the state of New Orleans was a black shine called Mr. Nagger or you can call him nigger which would be more fitting. There is a chain of command in the political realm. First the mayor has to speak to the governor, then the governor transfers the information to the President. Mr. Nagger was found guilty and he was later jailed for exploiting that very same black community, but Kanye West said nothing about this piece of trash. How can someone who literally did harm to black people not be considered as someone who doesn't care about his own people? How can an opinion of a white person cause more harm to the black race than a black man who has done injustice against his own people? Whenever you hear a negro talking about what's the solution don't even take this monkey serious. These savages don't reference behavior, they are only concerned about opinions. These modern day slaves don't want solutions and you can tell this by observing their behavior. The hypocrisy is just so ridiculous that it is not even funny anymore. I'm out.......

  3. The biggest problem in St.lucia is the GOVERNMENT. Both SLP and UWP have failed St.lucia !! I believe in every country and the parties that represent the people regardless of their political stance or ideologies must come together on common ground issues; For St.lucia these issues include National Security, Health Care and Education.

    If the government, regardless of who is in power would start to fix these broken systems and who ever succeeds them will continue the work. We would have less problems today. Instead it's always a blame game and PATRIOTISM IS LACKING !!

    HOW LONG HAS THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM BEEN BROKEN ? no government has started to fix it.

    HOW LONG HAS HEALTH CARE IN THIS COUNTRY BEEN BROKEN? no government is fixing it.

    OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM IS A MESS... no one is fixing it. The economy is a myth...

    AM SORRY FOLKS THE COUNTRY IS DYING... 5years from now if this trend continues Castries will be a huge Ghetto and the people that own property will have to forget about police protecting them and begin to arm themselves.
