  1. Police like the idea of shooting people. Most of these police officers have a serious discipline problem. They just plain blank wicked.We need to start bringing charges against them but then and again they work together always have another officer to cover their dirty work for them and the system is to damn slow.

  2. it's quite interesting how police officers just shoot a person, and give petty excuses as to why. i wonder what happens to the people who becomes officers cause it seems to me they have no mind at all of what they are doing, it's like they're possess. how do people expect crime to stop if they can't deal with it in a more suitable manner. why all the time a shooting, who knows, maybe the officers are playing a game to see how many each of them can shoot before they are resigned. this is my opinion. i'm not against correction or justice but i haven't seen it in St.Lucian since the government gave officers right to kill civilians like birds. a family has been a victim of it, and yes he deserved to be punished for his actions, but what puzzles me is how it was reported he was shot in the legs but died! really! is that what happened. the criminals and police officers needs to realize there's a god and nothing stays in the dark, i guess it's more to add to my prayer list.

  4. I cant think why a man could be under Investigation,and still be shot by police, are the police really thinking of the actions they take,while Investigating people for crimes, cause some of them are really going over Board now with they reckless shooting of people.
