The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has released more “facts” about the police shooting of 31-year-old Babboneau resident Mandy Louisy in view of what it describes as “misinformed statements” being made about the incident.

In a press release submitted to the media today, Aug. 20, the second in a week on the Louisy matter, the police said it is not usually the policy of the Force to “publicly comment on matters which have the potential to be the subject of judicial proceedings” but it is doing so to clarify “certain aspects of the matter”.

According to the release, “the facts of the matter are as follows”:

“On Friday 9 August 2013 about 12:30am, plain clothed officers attached to the Babonneau Police Station were on patrol in the Chassin area when en route they noted a suspicious looking male individual wearing dark clothes with a “hoodie”. He also had his hands in his pockets. The officers approached the young man like they would any other in a similar situation.  The individual was not known to the police.

The officers, stopped the individual, identified themselves to him and thereafter attempted to carry out a search of his person. The individual resisted and in the course of that resistance brandished a knife in a menacing manner at the officers.

While attempting to disarm this individual, a struggle ensued during which one officer discharged a single gunshot hitting him in the upper part of his body. That individual was immediately transported to Victoria Hospital where he was admitted in a critical condition. He subsequently succumbed to his injuries about 11:00 am.

That individual was subsequently identified as Mandy Louisy of Chassin, Babonneau.

The round discharged entered Mr. Louisy’s body from the front.

Whilst the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force understands the family’s and indeed the public’s concern and need to get the facts behind what transpired, such concerns ought not to be expressed in a manner that is contrary to what happened.

The police have followed proper protocol in the investigation of this matter to which end, a post mortem examination has been undertaken and the results transmitted to both the police and members of the decease’s family.

It is of course improper for the police to make public the contents of this report but as stated earlier, members of the family are in possession of the documents and are therefore fully aware of the their contents.

Investigations are continuing into the matter.

  1. Logical - for you name your comment is so ignorant. The FACT is that Mandy was innocent and robbed of his life by a bunch of low-life cowards who cannot come out to defend their side of the story!. Stop him from doing WHAT TO WHOM? He never did anything to anyone to start with.. The police officers had already immobilised him by hitting him twice on the back of his head, did they REALLY need to SHOOT him to?? at point blank/close range?

    Someone needs to get the autopsy results out to the public so all you idiots out there talking about the police force doing their job.. Is their job to KILL citizens in cold blood in the dead of night with no just cause? Innocent until proven guilty mate...

    You're right though, he was NOT shot because he was wearing a hoodie, he was shot because the 2 people who beat him over the head and pulled the trigger have no souls and deserve to have their dreams and waking moments haunted till the repent and apologise to his mother for taking her eldest child away from her...

  2. Good thing the officers stopped him before he had hurt somebody else. And for the people who cannot use their imagination, the police did not shoot him because he was wearing a hoodie.

  3. If and If for the slightest chance he was innocent and never did any body harm, robbing, mugging etc then rest his soul but besides that well ah well

  7. St. Lucian Police officers talking about "Hoodie" like they believe they are in Miami and the Victim is Trayvon Martin.

    What a group of worthless and wussy group of inbreeds.

    And not one of them have attained a tertiary level of Education.

  8. Blatant lie.
    If you look at reports after reports by the Police, they always have the same pattern and wording in sentence structure when their backs are to the wall, when they have done their gangster kind of eliminating citizens of this country.

    How else would they defend themselves, if not by a lie ( as we've seen) over and over.

    I know of a particular police officer, who has killed more people in SLU, than any other police officer in the force.
    He even brags about and cusses at the families of the Victims.

    But i now Justice will find its way to him and he will be exposed.

  11. This more has to do with training and lack of police equipment as well as lack of legislation( by the same politicians ual defend). If legislation was in place for tasers? pepper spray and mace that story would probably have a different outcome.

    • I rebuke you and your comments. I'm just stating the facts here. This has now turned into a Zimmerman case. Justice will prevail. Why don't all of you put your brains into use and pray for our country.

  13. It's not what happens which is the truth, it is how the police writes the report. 100 people can witness the truth but is written is the truth. So start walking with your phones to record, no your rights they can't prevent you from recording or take your recording device from you.

  14. So often in the media are tragic incidents. People brutally murdering other people. The story runs for a week or two, but then we hear nothing after. I'm waiting to see how soon before this case will run cold, when we'll hear no more reports or updates as to what justice was done. But one thing that pisses me off even more is that the media always has the victim or casualty's face posted up, but we can't even get the names of the culprits involved. Who were those officers that committed murder? Were they taken to prison? Are they out on bail? The Ronnie Walter's case is a prime and recent example of a story that is running cold, and it happened just last month. The media hasn't updated us since July. St. Lucia is a small island people talk, "rumors" are saying that individuals were apprehended , one tried to flee the country but was caught. Who are those people?? WHO ARE THEY!? Does the family of the culprits have money to post bail and allow these persons to continue to walk around freely until their court hearings? Are those guys indeed in prison right now on remand? I think, out of respect for the victim, the family, and the safety of the public that we should know. Expose them! Expose the criminals so that we are aware and not become the next victims on their list! Expose the convicted pedophiles and rapists! Expose those murderers !!!

    • You cannot release the names and photos of persons unless they are charged. If the officer was charged his name and or pic would've been posted. Obviously, if he was suspended, this would've been on the news. Unless there are new developments, the media has nothing to report. And we all know the judicial process here: it is long and drawn out. If the family takes no further action, the matter will die... not because of the media's inaction. People always want to blame the media for everything.

      And we do not have a database of people' pics sitting on, waiting to be released. Sometimes we are lucky to get photos of some victims and some alleged criminals, other times we are not. When we do not post a photo of a person who is charged, it's because we do not have a photo, not because we are paid off not to "expose" the pic or we are protecting individuals. At least I can speak for SNO.

      Also, if anyone was arrested and charged for Ronnie's murder there would've been a story. People are always questioning people daily about murders. The media cannot always say when everyone is being interviewed because they are not necessarily suspects. And if the police does not inform us, we won't necessarily know.

      The Ronnie Walter case has not gone cold. It is still under investigation. It may be solved or may never be solved. Either way, it is not the media's fault if it is not solved. If nothing new has happened, nothing can be reported unless to say there is nothing to report.

  15. It took them so many weeks to sit on their lying arses to concoct a bullshit story and expect us to swallow like we are thirsty on a hot freaking summer day? The RSLPF should never be trusted, not now not ever.Again since he was wearing a hoodie he's a target, a criminal, so they play a Travon Martin on him. The family should make everyone involve jump in the ocean and NEVER come on shore again.
