    • Our bad economics are creating criminals faster than they can be shot. These guys are trying to feed their families by taking from others that are doing the same. We have no respect for each other or each other’s property. It is true that if you offered many of these people jobs they would refuse it because thy have become culturalized that it is much easier to just disrespectfully to take from those that have more than they have.

      • Abandon pet you are saying it is a justifiable act for the two waste man to go and distroy people lively hood to feed there family. What if the owners of the home invaded were senior citizens they were likely to be killed by these monsters and judging from your rhetoric it is all good because they have to eat. The police should of cap the both of them. Its easier to dig a hole and put them in than put them in jail for the very said faimly they trying to distroy feed them

      • Hush your stupid ass, if they wanted to work they would of find work…always blaming the government for thier nasty behaviour

      • Lost pet man you always intrigued me. With your nonsense conversation. Did you drop out of third grade. No wonder your name is lost pet you are lost. Next time I see that name I am going to scream. No wonder everyone disagree with your comments. Even your parents would be ashamed of you because the older folks have better wisdom.get lost lost pet and don’t you come back no more.

  1. Good riddance to an unwanted vermin!

    Incidentally, in the days of old Rome, the Law was, that if Burglars were discovered to be in your property at night, you were “legally entitled” to kill them.

    Perhaps we here in SVG should enact that “Law” of old Rome, in order to rid ourselves of this scourge of pesky Vermins, that is seriously affecting our neighbourhoods!

    Truly, good riddance to that unwanted Vermin!

  2. Come now Lospet, Come now, we could never ever justify these vermin and their reasons for what they now do. If they think that others are taking from them, then they should seek legal measures to put the matter right, one could never ever endorse illegality in any civil society.

    We would all agree that our existing Government have failed us in their inability to create the environment where good sustainable jobs are possible, but that is no reason for these vermins to go raiding land for our produce or burgling Shops and homes.

    When Governments fail us, the legal opportunity to change them do exist, however, that issue is a whole new can of worms in SVG.

  3. so i guess the make it right for the police to take ah man life you people full of shit
    that’s some one son ….you vincy people will take anything larrrd..

  4. Looks like that you Lex, is also the kind of person that we are most likely to find rummaging through our homes and businesses or even plundering our crops!

    Me say de Police shouda lite-up the odder one too! Let’s get rid of these vermins who are giving us so much grief!

  5. Bad economics my a…The criminals use any excuse not to work but grab what other people worked hard for. Got back into small scale farming only to be told yesterday that ‘reapers’ were there! One less for public upkeep in jail. And for those who put a political spin as excuse for crime, just shut up and check out the background of these criminals.

  6. Good job That’s how we have to get them. .Dont want to work but quick to take what you work hard for. I am so happy more to go this way.

  7. Is this the best you could do Salassie, a one liner that has little relevance to the known facts? Tell us Salassie, are you wishing to sympathise with the various known nefarious acts of this dead villain and his sidekick? If you are, then say so!

    If you dislike what I have written, please do say so too, and say so at lengths, that we may understand what is your true objection.
