  2. What do you expect people to say when he is out at 2:40 am and the picture posted is with him in that kind of pose with his hair looking like that. The fact is we have too many youth focused on the wrong things and parents who are not paying attention. Then again the parents are soo young themselves they never got to live life so the cycle continues children cant parent children.

    • Listen to you . Just listen to you as ignorant as it gets "that kind of pose with his hair looking like that" So because he wore a certain hair style means was a bad kid ? His "pose" means he was a bad kid ? typical arrogant St Lucian.

      • Point is our young men are revelling in murdering each other while we argue about who's to blame. Are you not fed up. Our government has no direction on this issue, they just dont care and worse they have not the faintest clue where to start.
        Wake up lucians our country is being auctioned off while our youth are left in limbo.

It's clear that this young guy didn't have to b taken away like this...he is someone's friend, brother, cousin etc...hence the reason for anonymous not wanting to come back...don't b ridiculous if you dnt agree with someone's point of view ok

    • I don't blame you. Don't worry with the people who will write criticizing you trying to make it seem like they're all for country. I could not encourage anyone to come back to St. Lucia right now. Crime is high (41 murders already and it's not just criminals killing criminals) and there are few opportunities, plus the people . . . smh. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

    • Before you say such non-sense, stop to think about the massacre in Vegas and other mass incidents in the US and elsewhere......stupid people!!!!!

      • So both sides really? Wat are u saying? Think of the side where people have a choice to go where ever they feel ok

  4. Sad. Crime in St Lucia is evolving. Where did all these guns come from? Do the authorities have ANY PLANS to get the guns off the streets? The last I heard is that there will be after school programs for the youth. That's fine. That MAY help curb the future crime problems but what's about now? 41 murders how many have been arrested in connects to these murders? Government ministers let's pretend it's an election year. Say something. At this point I will accept a lie. Lie to us and say we have a plan and it will be under control. Just say something.

    • "Where guns coming from" ? Ask the diaspora. There are no gun factories in St Lucia and not all are coming in on fishing boats and customs only seeing what they want to see when they open the barrels. I know of persons who have bought guns in Texas and Florida and sneak them into St Lucia. Those same individuals went into Courts Vieux Fort with guns and threaten an employee over a sale in front of everybody and to this day nothing came of it because of their last name.

    • I do not live in St Lucia but I have family there.i am from Barbados but live in london. The same is happening in Barbados and London. I believe as a Christian we need to pray for all our youth. I Also believe the leaders need to make stand against crime. Stuff will happen but prevention is better than cure. There is no cure for death. Where are the church role models? In fact where are the the role models? The positive ones. Let's not give up on our youth they are supposed to be our tomorrow, our caretakers. Let's us find solutions.

  5. Imagine don't even know the gentleman and because he lives at bagatelle automatically classified as a thug? ??? For your information I happen to know him and he was not a thug at all!!! Actually far from it! Never even been in trouble for that matter. Smh, he was actually passing when the shots rang out . people it can happen to anyone of us .think before you post, especially when not sure of the facts!.unbelievable. Smh.

  6. 16 but shot in the streets at 2:40 a.m....parents did you know where your child was?......such slackers!!!!

    (12)(4)

    • I am assuming the matter is also being looked into by Human Services Department. It is high time the state make it mandatory that parents and guardians take up the responsibility of their children and their actions. My brain can never process a 16 year old on the streets at 2am unaccompanied by a responsible adult. This is madness.

  7. Heart broken!reminds me of a tupac song....(SHORTY WANNA BE A THUG....only 16een ni**a..16eennn)...he actually say those word....this thing is tottaly outta hands,i plead to the youths dem fi put down di guns and learn to love each other.

    • Imagine that this child was not a thug at all and to he label as such just because of his residence is heartbreaking! !!!!! People we need to be careful before we post especially when not sure of the facts.and I say so because I knew him personally poor soul was just an ordinary child . never been in trouble and for u to make a statement like this is uncalled for, Smh.......He was just passing and got hit, it could happen to anyone of us or our family members. Don't be so quick to judge.poor Edmund. Shame on you and your factless post.

    • Wishful thinking brethren, what we need is policy and action.... words, prayers etc will do nothing, have we not realized this yet??

  8. It hurts my heart when I think of our young people. This young man has just started living life and he is gone. I cry out for the youth. Mamas hold on to your children. Fathers teach them, play with them parents spend time with your children. Fear of God is what they need to be taught most of all. I have a 17 year old and I just imagine if it were him. So young.

  9. 16teen and life cut short so soon,what a sixteen year old doing on the streets at 2:40 am in the morning.And he not of legal age to drink,or even enter a night club,Except getting involve in things that dont concern him.You'll need a curfew for teenagers.Nothing on the streets at night under 30 except if you employed somewhere and i want supervisor telephone number and manager telephone number.And i want to see ID.The only time youll can leave youll house is if youll have hospital emergency.Everyday is the same shit.Nothing change's.

  10. Another young teenage life taken. Parents pray for your kids . Don't stop giving them to God. They may seem difficult to deal with but the most high never give up on his children.
