  2. If the law enforcers of this country want the citizens support, then do your job; enforce the law. The Guy came publicly and said he knows who did it. Then why is he now dead?????
    On another note; when a country turns away from God as we have then you give Satan free course. The bible says "Satan is like a roaring lion. Going to and fro. seeking whom he may devour. The Word may suggest he needs permission. Let stop giving him permission and turn to God our Protector, The REAL LION of Judah.

    • I rell agree with what u saying there. A man try to be a good sumeritan but the Saint Lucia police force never take people serious until its too late or until they another clue for the crime case and then neeed to go get the statement they ignored at first. The way I see it is the police is responsible for not exercising proper protocol when it comes to cooperating and protection witnesses.
      When I look at the avergae type of citizens being murdered, its the younger people dieing out in crime, so just a suggestion... Why the government don't give the youth the chance to police themselves in addition to what the police force already existing.
      Give the youth a chance to occupy their time and have a sense of responsibility for their country by sanctioning voluntary policing or rather lawful enforcement programmes during weekends or so (ofcourse supervised by the proper authority).
      We need to work with the youth the bridge the gap between what is accepted morally by youths and elders. One lucia we have so one people we should invest in.
      All this crime is happening because since the past we have never focussed on integrating/ developing our culture to suit modern times, in our (lucians) own likeness... stop following the model of the United States because we not benefiting off of it and clearly they are not going to help us build our nation.
      One country, one life, one style, one community, one playground, ONE ST.Lucia...

      And a note to the criminals, misguided or purposely being lawless, read some of these stories on the news and open your mind to change.

  4. Isn't this the same guy that appeared on a news broadcast saying he was shot, saying he knew who did it and saying he knew they would come back? If he was ready to share this info on national tv and not hide his face my gut tells me he would tell the police! Smh SLU needs to have some law!

  8. So saddened about this crime situation back home. Law enforcement need to step up. We need law abiding police officers who will help build lives rather than being an instrument behind the trigger. The system is messed up (very corrupt) I know we are leaving in the end of times but geezzzz! Money and power equals greed! And we are leaving in such a time! Put down the weapon of destruction!
