  3. We all making comments in our little small islands. How would police in America deal with this situation? I can tell you he would be dead by now cause lately in America this is the trend right now. The officer's life was threatened by the fact that his firearm could have been taken from him in the process. I think he needs better training in dealing with situations like this where excessive force is used and also he needs a partner he can trust with his life. This would never happen in SLU not at all.!!!!

  5. Only in Grenada. I would not want this police officer to patrol the streets of St. Lucia.
    They should give him a desk job and his partner should be thrown in jail for being an accomplice.

  10. There are other vids circulating . The other cop did assist. It's good to know the facts before making judgements. How many of you would be happy a cop shot ur little girl or little boy because he or she punch him in the nose and broke it. U guys are sick if u believe every time we got a situation like that someone must die. Smh

  19. I'm quite amazed of how you people in St Lucia promote your police officers. Sounds to me like they are a bunch of corrupt and heartless murderers. How can some of you imply that the young man should be dead because he beat a police? Its obvious that most of you don't know nothing about the law and the duties of a police officer. Please people next time some of you just shut up,cause you making St Lucia look like a place full of illiterates and uncivilised people. Well done Cpl Roberts. Don't know what was the problem with the other cop!!!!

    • In the U.S. he would be shot for doing nothing. So don't make it seem as if we are so ignorant in Lucia.
      Some of your people in the diaspora pretend as if you'll suddenly become geniuses just because you'll migrated or you'll spent a few years at a college or university.
      I find you are very disrespectful.
      I wouldn't want this police officer to patrol the streets of St. Lucia.

  23. Officer should be charge for a lack of sufficient force in handling this situation. A law man should never allow himself to be humiliated like that. An office must be trained to use adiquate force to fulfill his objective so that on-lookers will learn to have even more respect for the law.

  38. The failuire of that Jr officer to get involved is disgraceful. He is an exception among our generally fine men and women in blue. He should be dismissed with all haste as he obviously poses a danger to his fellow officers... He is a joke

  43. It's funny how ridiculous some of you can be. If it was here if it was there this would not happen, blah blah blah because you police officers would engage in some illegal activity. Typical island fools missing the bigger picture totally.
    First ask yourself what is wrong the above video?
    Why is another police officer present and just strutting like he's on the red carpet?
    You are arresting someone you don't even have a pair of handcuffs.
    Those policemen obviously need better training as technique and communication seems to be a problem.
    Enough with the ignorant talk not here not here, policeman have to follow laws also and shouldn't get to play judge, jury and executioner. Go get properly trained.

    • I agree with your point but I think you are misunderstanding the st.lucian commenters as being proud of having a "badder" police force. No no they are very right! This would not happen in SLU and the Saint-lucians say this because they are fully aware of the corruption of our police force. Belive me there's no pride in the statement "If it was lucia he would be this n that" it's just the truth.
      As to why there is an officer on the catwalk I am unsure. I feel bad for this clearly docile officer this is public embarassment.

    • Check the law (constitution of saint Lucia) and any constitution of any other country when it comes to safety and protection to yourself and your colleague. you are not well informed my man. Go and read. This other police officer HAVE A DUTY TO ASSIST the other one. As far as I know his ass will be grass for doing nothing to assist the Police officer. In that case any force used would be have been justified. I can assure that this Police officer will not have a job after that investigation is completed.He is a coward and Lawenforcent agencies don't train you to be a cowad.

  50. If there was not an immediate dismisal of this spectator so called cop, the commisioner deserves an ass whooping himself. This stand by cop endangered his self,his partner and the public he is not worthy of dat badge he wears he cnt back it up, lucia police to the world, dnt mind dem the law abiding st.lucians got urll back. Operation restore confidence.

  51. At first I was tempted to defend the other officer. There must be a logical reason why he stood there while his partner was getting beat by a dumb criminal. First I thought he was doing crowd control but even after several persons surrounded the Corporal and the perp trying to assist, that other officer just stood on the sidelines. What if one of the civilians had pulled the officers gun when they surrounded him? My next conclusion was maybe he was the supervising officer, but he actually the junior officer so he couldn't have been supervising the incident. It should have been the other way round. Finally after much review I realise what his role was during that whole video. People look closely, his job was to hold the Corporal's hat. I am assuming Corporal assigned him that role because he knew the his partner was a punk-ass who couldn't swing a punch to save his life. Bottom line is that other officer is in the wrong line of work.

  57. first, that other cop should have been dismissed with immediate effect. secondly, the coporal never let the guy go. he effect an arrest but never gave up. the gentleman who assisted him should be put in the uniform that the lazy arse cop is wearing. but rest assures, had it been in lucia, da man afi dead!.

  69. Couple of things..
    1) Notice the police officer NEVER gave up and was on his target (the offender) all the time.

    2) Notice the police officer NEVER stopped his pursuit at anytime.

    3) Notice the weave wearing woman wants to get a piece of the action coming close to the individual.

    4) Notice there was one other civilian who tried to help the police officer but had to later, give up.

    And...

    5) Notice the police was armed, yet he never thought to use his firearm.

    Now that's a making of a proud and efficient police officer and reflects the level of professionalism that we expect from police officers.

    Kudos Grenada.
    Great police work.
