  2. Let the criminals police our streets! No inquests, no IMPACS, not arrest and charging of police officers
    and no Mary. This is what we Saint Lucians want. We seem excited to see our police officers who try to keep this country from going down under, go to jail. We seem to bash them at every turn not realizing that the government that demanded them to build a modern four lane highway with spades and shovels, an near impossible task one would admit, has set them up to fail.

    It's sad but I don't blame our police officers who seem too afraid to fight, too afraid to do the job for which they were hired, too afraid to shoot at anyone and too afraid to even professionally investigate the atrocities committed by those criminals. I don't envy their position, seeing that our society seemingly prefers to have the criminals in control of our streets. While I am dismayed by those developments, I remain hopeful that one day our society will learn to appreciate our law enforcement officers and the difficulty their job entails. Only then will we truly appreciate that no arm of society can effectively function or grow without their input, for they are the ones to create the foundation for a thriving society, they are the ones that create the climate for business and development and they are the one to create the climate for peace and security which most of us yearn for.

    My thoughts and prayers are with our beleaguered officers.


  3. Y am I not surprise that somebody from that car got shot? The number plate has always caught my eye. In the places that illegal activity is prevalent with some dark tint. Anyways. one less


  4. When u put all your energy into living like a child of darkness, seeking the cheap pleasures that corrupt the character instead of treasuring the association of your precious loved ones u left behind at home, WHAT DO U EXPECT TO GET?


  5. What's puzzling all those criminal activities going on and the same US and Mary Francis that have a problem with police doing their job ain't coming and say to do anything with those criminals. Let the criminals take over the country. Kill all the innocent. If they were only targeting those like themselves but all innocent get caught up in the midst. While Hermangild come on TV and smile


  6. R.I.P Alvin, you will surely be missed. I pray God comforts your family in this time of grief, my condolences to Alvin's family.


  7. R.I.P Alvin...Still in shock...I pray that your family finds comfort and strength in the Lord...Saw you during the week with your princess, not knowing it would be the last...smh...
