  3. Wow, didn't realize it was this gentleman until i read the names of the kids. I know the kids very well. Oh boy, RIP sir. Hope the family can be strong. A simple family trying to make a living. Very humble family trying to run a business at the Gablewoods mall. Hope the killer(s) are found and brought to justice.

  4. Strange am not choosing sides or anything ,but correct me if am wrong.from the time this government has taken post i have seen a vast uprising of killings and theft.2 when killers are caught they should have strict punishments ,cause that going to live elsewhere for a few years in a jail cell and when let off get ranks as a bad boy or called rude bwoy or killa doesn't play any role to help Lucia,So lets start with that.2 The Goverments should help put there concern in the little things instead of taking the time to fight each other ,yes i said goverments why because its a turn taking thing with them,if they don't i guarantee it will reach there doorstep,and am sure by that time it will be to late to turn.Everybody knows things are getting worse in those days (as a freind says)and will continue to get even worse,but you can slow it down,i vote for hanging unless somone was killed in defending oneself,3 as previously said if u squeeze a nation it probably gets destroyed,Am talking about VAT, lots of people don't like it because of the percentage of it on the island ,the Country has never been introduced to it but from nowhere they have literally put 300 pounds of peoples back,and where does all that money goes cause i don't see it with those rediculous comments like this bridge cost somthing million lol come on people ,first off am preety sure that amount of money is over exaggerated for all those dumb ass bridges with that kinda pricing,The VAT goes into people in power pockets am preety sure more than 50% of it goes in some peoples bank account and when this term is up lets see what happens.4. Bus fares are rising crazy so is the VAT if am mistaken its like telling the poor people the lil they have go build your grave with it,St.lucia was fine if u ask me its the rich that wana get richer over our hard working bodies.CRIME IS EVERYWHERE AND IT STARTS WITH THE HEAD,CRIMES AGAINST THE STATE OF ST.LUCIA.

    • the minute u start by saying u not taking sides that is exactly what u r doing. so shut the f----up. you lazy greedy lucians get pon de husling. all they do is want quick money and watch ur things to go steal. Who can read criminals mind, not Kenny not king not even u. I want the punishment to fit the crime but try as u may that cannot stop crime.

  5. I said before and i am saying it again we have lost all the respect we once had for God , for our familes and our self. So bsc we dont value our life we dont think that some else deserved to live. Lucians let me tell yu'll something we aint see nothing yet. As a lucian living in NY i can remember when a muder would occur about every 5 years or so. Today we have about 3 or more a week. zThe reason is no body is being arested or even go to jail for crimes that they commite. the murderes know that no one will dare say anything so continued to kill anf destroy familes lives. we take to long to slove crimes in St.Lucia the penalty for committing murdrt should be death by hanging bring it back. we need to stop protecting those good for nothing salops who thinks that people own somethings in life. go plant bananas like before. We also need some serious praying on the island. Crime on the island is every lucian problem. we need to act now or else st.lucia will loose all her beauty.

  6. This is why the death penalty must be re introduced.then the murder
    rate will stay low.Too many useless and unsolved murders in this small country of ours.Then you will hear and see Mary francis and martinus fancois talking shit about human rights my foot.what about the ppl who lost their lives? Aren't they humans? I would give my all and vote for death penalty instead of getting those murderers fat in the 40 star hotel.This has to stop.when the police are doing their job, then you hear ppl crying out police brutality.Honestly, this government is not doing enough to stop crime , instead they dig up flambeau past sbout money usage.we are in a crisis,., enough is enough.
    Hey, that's my opinion.

  8. I am reading some of the comments here and I notice some of the same people posting and saying that we need a more serious police force and then blame police on another news article for brutality.
    I think that they should make up their minds.

  10. I need some one to tell me whether it is mother's who suffer and make these kind of
    evil men .

    No one know how long the poor victim suffer , it is a pain of heart, we cannot pray for him because he has already dead, let us all pray for the safety of those we know and does we do not know also.

    It is time for us to surrender our life to God.

    • Mary, it is true, a mother's mental and emotional state decides what Soul the fetus attracts during her pregnancy. Hence why pregnant women should be taken proper care of, that way we'll have more evolved beings walking among us...instead of high-class animals

  13. My Philson Joseph was a hard working farmer of over 30 years experience. A humble and simple man. Something is wrong with the soul of this Nation. The story will be told one day.
