  1. bailed for possession of unlicensed fire arms,are the govt serious in combating crime in st.lucia,needs an iron fist.


  2. I really thought a 5 year sentence was mandatory for firearm possession so why this is not implemented? That would surly sent a positive messages.These small fines for intended criminals is a joke.The police work so hard to get the guns off the streets but the magistrates seems to be a joke with their fines.
