  1. Mean to tell me hospital is right there and an ambulance couldn’t come to help!!! I am so sick and tired of losing my friends to these kinds of things! Prime minister should have more ambulances or backup vehicles. What if multiple accidents were to happen in one day? What would they do? What is St. Vincent really coming to? I am so pissed off as a 16 year old, something needs to be done. These crimes must stop. Families need justice. Death sentence should come back into place. Honestly i do not feel safe in this country anymore.

    • Where so much is concerned in our society our government seems to be “out to lunch”; nevertheless, we still get a significant amount of voters keeping them there. To keep them “out to lunch”.

  2. May be it’s time for citizens to start a sueing the Government for neglect. There are to many unemployed persons in SVG. Idleness resulting from unemployment is a major cause of criminality and violence. If we were to structure our economy properly we would be able to employ more people and create opportunities for young entrepreneurs.

    A failing school system and poor parenting are also at play here. A child should be taught the attributes of good citizen from the time he is able to understand until he finishes college. To much time is being spent on teaching children to be successful rather than striking a balance between being good upstanding citizens and becoming successful achievers. The issue is there is no point in teaching a child to be successful if you are not teaching that child the attributes of a good citizen. You would ultimately end up with some academically intelligent persons who have criminal and violent tendencies. Good manners and positive attributes should be reinforce throughout a persons life especially in school.

    Finally, the police are to adopt a zero tolerance approach against persons carrying and possessing offensive weapons. Be it a nife, cutlass, dagger or any sharpen object. If you are a farmer or vendor you should possess a license to take a cutlass or nife around. To many persons are allowed to take offensive weapons around without being challenged by the Police.

    If we want a stable and successful country our government has to adopt a more clever approach in stimulating the economy. Our Police have to be properly ressourced and trained. Our school system have be more realistic and face up to the challenges of today’s society.

    • Sane thing I’m always saying. As if crimes didn’t happen before this prime minister was in office. The killing was an individual thing. Was he sent by the prime mi later to kill. No matter how harsh the sentence is for criminals. Itwont stop crimes from happening..

    • Augustus shit head Carr why you don’t stop do what you’re doing and go sue the government you chatting shit,is the government sending them to do what they’re doing .

  3. Even if the ambukance came for him he would of still died from his injuries you ppl too much. A uoung man was savagely attack and all i can hear is the ambulance didnt even come. And you all there stand over his body not doing shit

  4. Time for the Government to install CCTV in strategic locations to help prevent crime and to assist investigators in solving crimes. A DNA strategy should also be put in place to capture the DNA of all persons arrested and those persons who wish to volunteer for such. A DNA Strategy would be a significant boost in solving Crimes.

  5. WE must stop engaging in verbal attacks and the politicization of every incident are events that takes place in SVG. People are busy pointing fingers at government,ambulance and cursing each other. No one thus far express sympathy for the tragic loss of the young man’s life, and express condolences to his family. For it’s them who feels it most.
    Many people who commented had mostly positive things to say, even those who politicize the issue. The truth is, there has been an upsurge in crime in many countries,not just SVG. The question is, how we are going to deal with our crime situation. My take to reduce crime and violence is the following: get young people involved, in civic,cultural and economic activities. Teach them to engage each other like it use to be instead of engaging the dumb-smart phone and social media! lets become human again instead of robots. Remember,robots don’t show human emotions. Parents you love your children so don’t be complicit.You have a right to stress the importance of a decent education and monitor their cell phone activity. let them engage in civic activities: scout,cadet, girls guide,youth groups,sports group ect.This will help to teach them the value of hard work and participation in society. All youths must feel included: Paul’s ave, Up Town, Down Town, Sharps, Sion Hill, Edinboro, Atley Hall-all ah dem ! There needs to be more Professional sporting facilities in SVG. A national stadium would do some justice.

    We need to develop our local economy so that more of our youths will be employed. we cannot only blame it on our Ruling party cause all ah we hav fo get involved and become more creative. The elites and business class should lead the way however. STOP IMPORTING everything INNAH SVG. Develop our local economy: Modern Hotels, Agro- processing( fruit juices, coconut oil, black fish oil for export and the like). Some more technical and vocational school are needed.I went a bit far but I just wanted, not only to criticize but to show, show how crime and violence may be reduced.

    • Interesting comment Paul Cummings. Unfortunately most everything in SVG is politicized. The current Government is mainly responsible for that. What the current government does not take responsibility for is the breakdown in our institutions and society. There is only so much churches can do. Very sadly we do not have real leadership in Saint Vincent, just a blowhard quasi dictator. Yes, in most places in the world things have gotten worse since 11 September 2001, but not everywhere! Countries that go along with the LOSER GLOBAL ESTABLISHMENT AGENDA are all becoming looser partners, (see Germany and Sweden wanting to import as many refugees as possible to destroy their society). Some that do not go along with the agenda are also becoming losers, such as Venezuela, that just has a terrible system! Saint Vincent unfortunately has a self-serving leader that is addicted to power.

  6. If my memory serves me right the LOSTPET who claimed that he’s not a Vincentian do have a lot to say about our Vincentian affairs. I guess the PET found a home in SVG and its no better that where he came from.
    As to the no brainer from wizard of oz who believes he should speak for every Vincentian and if you don’t say I agree you going to be thrown to the sharks.
    Instead of blowing hot air and say who should do this and that, show the world that you care about St.Vincent step up and put what you are preaching into practice lets see if your efforts would make a difference.

  7. Scorpio,

    You are obviously and illiterate bafoon. It seems like you have just emerged from the jungles of La Sufrierre; very malnourished and shallow. You seem to be one of those who voted for the goverment for two sheets galvanize.

    Let me educate you. The root causes of crime are very diverse. They are social,economical,psychological,biological, and sociological. Additionally, crime is intrinsically linked to poor governance and the government inability to take care of its people as this government have demonstrated time a time again. They have appease the marijuana farmers who are responsible for flooding SVG with guns and fueling the violence. They have failed to properly train and equip the police instead the police have to depend on handouts from the USA, Canada and England. Ask yourself these questions, how could a man walk around Kingstown with a Knife and stab another in the Capital city few yards from the Central Police Station and few yards from your parliament building? Who is responsible for national security? How much of these such incidents we have had in Kingstown over the past twenty years?

    The past two governments have hardly done anything to reduce the unemployment rate in SVG. Instead they continue to make the government bigger, taxation higher and the people poorer and very frustrated, and more economically deprived. The young people have no choice to survive but to deal drugs and steal because of successive governments inability to provide oprtunities for them that would enable them to be economically empowered. Poor nutrition from ones inability to feed himself leads to violet the tendencies. It is so evident that there are so many people in our country who cannot afford a balance diet. Look at Jamaica, SVG, Nicaragua, Trinidad and Tobago and South Africa and you would see they have a lot in common. They all have high murder rates, dysfunctional goverments, high unemployment rate, a high rate of poverty and very poor nutrition.

    If you are educated as I am you would realise the Government is responsible for the state of affairs in the country. So you see Scorpio because you are a numskull you can’t see the rational of my point.

    I am not surprise at your response. It is typical malnourished child like yourself. Your response demonstrate your propensity to display the same violent tendencies like the ignorant individual who just killed that poor young man. This is not a forum for people like you. It is only for the educated and you obviously do not fall into this category.

  8. My comments are not political. I have no political affiliation to any party or individual in SVG. I have voted once. I will continue to contribute to development of SVG but I will never vote again. Both political parties are very much like each other. They are filled up of self seeking individuals.

    My criticisms are design to be constructive. Ask each of the politician what is his/her motivation for being in politics. If they are honest they would tell you it is in opportunity to make money. None will say to you it is for the love of the country and the betterment of their people. Suspend their salaries for four (4) months and you would see how much of them would turn up for work.

    Open up your eyes Vincentians take control of your country and your destiny. Years of a spiraling murder rate is unacceptable. Demand more attention from your government and police for security. I hope the culprit of this heinous crime is brought to justice.

  9. Agusta Carr, can you not get your point across without calling others these degrading names? Why do you thing that name calling has any affect on someone to whom you ascribe these descriptive words? Name calling always have a bommerang effect.
