Man shot and Killed in Kingstown


  1. Just as Nero in old Rome played his fiddle while Rome burned, so too the ULP and its leadership sit ringing their collective hands in silence.

    They are sitting in quiet affirmation of their total ineptitude in economic competence and their gross inability to bring to an end this lawlessness, that is slowly destroying our lives and our communities.

    This is how “Labour Love” expresses itself, as Ralph Gonsalves and his failed security and economic policies, plays themselves out!

    Death, Death, Death and more Death, as we experience the horrendous and horrifying results of the failed philosophical and political beliefs system of an old man who is just full of talk.

    Who will tell the King that he has no clothe on?

    • Sir,
      Do you really believe that Labor or NDP can curb the wave of crimes that is taking place? What is the responsibility of the citizens of the country? The government could have been the NDP, would you have felt the same way you do now? If the hearts of men are evil and unrepentant no government can prevent the inevitable. People have got to learn to live together and resolve their issues in a more level headed way. The Bible says, if my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and repent and return to God, He will pardon their iniquity and heal the land. SVG needs healing. Too much political divide and hatred. Too much guns and drugs. Too much alcohol and satanic music. Too much disrespect for those in authority. Too much greed and covetousness. Get back to family worship, family activities, hard work and comradery amoungst neighbors. Let love prevails once again.

      • In your last sentence you say “hard work”. Where should some of these young men go to work hard for a decent wage? Actually it is not the wage that is the problem, SVG has relatively high wages. the problem is that the costs are too high. We have to pay FAR TOO MUCH to the government in fees and taxes making prices in SVG sky high for most people.. Instead of creating an environment where the private sector can create jobs, our government simply just raises taxes again and again. Many of our young people adopt an attitude that they need to commit crimes to get anything because the atmosphere for job creation has been governmentally destroyed by a few arrogant and greedy men. Our youth themselves become arrogant, greedy and disrespectful of law and society. They mimic the “leadership” in their own way.

  2. The Upl cannot control murder. The people needs to be able to find a way to live with each other and be able to solve their differences a better way.

    • Oh Maylene is it so simple? If it were we still need leadership to direct us and if you look…where is our leadership? All we have is a big, old bag of talking wind!

  3. Maylene, Maylene, one of the Government’s principal duty is to provide us with a secure environment in which to live in, that we in turn may be able to conveniently and economically provide for ourselves, in an affable, genial way, free from bother.

    What We here have, day in and day out, edged weapons and gun violence at every turn in SVG and what on earth is this Government doing about it? I tell you, it does appears to be doing absolutely nothing! And why, Why so?

    Because they are utterly, utterly hopeless at providing us with a peaceable non-violent environment to live in. If this is not failing in their principal duty what is Maylene?

    • Why does it have to be government? These things must come to past before the return of Christ. People have learn to resolve their differences in a fifferent way. Murder is not the answer. The people have to work with the government. There are only so much people in parliament vs the large population of people.

  4. Blk people will always want to blame someone for their own failures. The killing of people no matter how rich or poor you are is down to greed bad mind grudgeful and just being bad….im no supporter of RG see not even saying his name but as i think of myself as a well educated person from foreign common sense which a lot of people here dont have seems to prevail and i simply look around and can clearly see WE YES WE are own worst enemies until we treat each other with the respect young old poor middle rich we not going anywhere and lawless state shall remain…..lastly just read how they normally report news ??? Exactly how the person has said it is how it is printed sorry to go off at different angles but i find everyone who think to blame goverment for everything have nothing better to do and would go as far to say are probably the ones who set up the negativity within this country……put all you efforts in making sensible suggestions to have change rather than slag off people …….In fact will be surprised if they print this lol

    • Steven, the problem we have here is YES! the government IS responsible! If not the government then who? I can write several pages here telling you that it was very easy to see this coming in SVG. /I am surprised it was not worse much earlier. Actually Vincentians are/were very civilized people compared to other developing nations but we are as James H says: “going to hell”. The best way to alleviate a large amount of crime quickly is to support industries that create jobs, the SVG government will not do this. They make NO real financial concessions unless in Tourism. But we do not get much tourists. Our PM has to stop thinking like a loser and instead be a leader which can take sacrifice of his precious taxes and Customs duty, (money, money, money!)and leave some wealth in the private sector instead of taking it all for his failing loser government. If we do not acknowledge it is a failure of government policy, we will continue the killings in the big way they are now occurring and instead search for scapegoats like the ULP supporters Maylene and Gwen above.

  5. What is wrong with you three people Maylene, Steven and Gwen? Do you not understand that the principal role of Government is to provide us with good security! In this they are failing and failing us very, very badly.

    SVG has become HELL because of their gross failings!

  6. I agree with most of the comments. I don’t think that there’s much the government can do to reduce crime in the country. Firstly, families need to take a stand and be better role models for their young children. Too often I’m seeing situations where parents are buying the most expensive brands for their children and they are left without school supplies. Why not invest in their education first? These are the same children growing up to want fast money turning to drugs and other means to maintain these lifestyles. We need to make that change for ourselves rather than blaming it on government and other things.

    • Then,why have any government,for that matter? If not to provide security[ one of the tenets of a democracy,] what is its purpose?

    • Yes, If more was invested in education then even you would know that it IS the fault of government. The crime cannot stop in days weeks or months. These young people have to be given an alternative such as a good job! When the government taxes the country to death there is no money left to invest where jobs can be created. It will take many months possibly years to lower the violent Crime rate but the government has to enact the correct measures and they refuse to give up their greed and let business make a profit instead of losses. When taxes go up so does the price of our products. No one wants to pay for SVG agriculture because it is too expensive because the price has to be high enough to make farming worth while, but it is not because life is too expensive in SVG. WHO can change that? Not we the people, Not the Churches, not the bible or Jesus, only the government. Now do you understand? Yes, I see from the comments that many Vincentians do need to get educated, at least in Economics 101

      • Poor lost pet boy u really lost. I wonder what do you do for a living you sound like one of the criminals. I see you are an nod man who hates on the u l p. Haters going to be haters.i say that because you blame everything on the government. Lost what you do for a living did you finish primary school. People have to work for a living by getting education. One cannot sit back and get good jobs. Education and hard work. In all your comments you seems to justify the criminals and theif. That’s why so many people disagree with you. It’s ok to choose your party but don’t blame the other side for everyone criminal act. Get a whole of yourself man before you make another comment . Your no common sense statements make vincentian look bad. Dude you can always go back to school it’s not too late.

  7. SVG not only have a lot of GUNMEN running wild in our town and villages it also have a lot of dunce people here too, so I must ask again this question…..What is wrong with you people? The role of Government is to provide us with good government and to govern the nation properly. This government is failing to provide us with GOOD GOVERNMENT!

    Firstly Gwen, let me say that the reason why God instituted Governments is because we humans cannot keep his laws.

    Governments are to provide society with LAW AND ORDER and to regulate our bad behaviour, one to another but sadly, it is clear to see, that this Government is failing us in its god given duty. Just think about it, if we were to regulate ourselves then we do not need governments!

    Secondly Gwen, God has nothing to do with these terrible matters as such, as we are not a godly people. We are therefore on our own. Remember Gwen that god only have time for repentant sinners. Unrepentant sinners are left to themselves to do as they so please.

    God uses the wicked to regulate the wicked, that is why we have governments, so just keep God out of the chaos that is SVG. It is up to our Government to do its job properly and it is not, therefore chaos is setting in here, turning SVG into the HELL that it now is.

    You ask Gwen, why does it have to be Government and the answer is, it has to be the Government because it is their duty to do and here they are profoundly failing at their job of policing and regulating this nation. So HELL sets up shop instead!

  8. I agree with most of you, but the government cannot do this on it’s own the people of St Vincent must play their part too, there is a war going on and it’s not just in St Vincent it’s all over the world so leave the Government alone he have done a lot more for St Vincent that any of the other governments before him, the UK is not any better, and people of SVG should look into themselves, they are watching too much western movies, and all of them think they are all Johnny too bad. Please note the people have a role to play too.

    • In other words you are saying that our leaders do not have to lead us. The Government including the police should just stay home, right? We should send them all our money so they can have a good time setting up institutions that take even more of our money so they can have a good time and we can kill eachother. Clearly you are another ULP internet Troll, there are a lot of them called-out for this article to protect emperor Ralph.

  9. What part of your brain is missing Stapleton? To say that “the UK is not any better” than SVG is giving people here, who have never visited the UK, a false impression of life in the UK.

    Firstly the UK do not have an unaccountable Prime Minister because the people up there would not put up with, tolerate or condone such nonsense as we do from an elected Prime Minister. They are too educated to permit a Prime Minister to indulge in ignoring them and their Parliament.

    Secondly the UK being an advanced western industrial society with a properly funded Welfare structure, do not have poor unemployed people running amok unchecked with guns all over its towns and villages.

    Thirdly the UK has one of the best Police service in the entire world, unlike us here in SVG that has one of the worst.

    The result, to quote Agustus Carr on this very site is “the homicide rate in England is about 1 for every one million according to the Geneva Declaration Of Armed Violence And Development” therefore what a contrast to little SVG.

    The fact of the matter is this, our Government have failed us by not growing our economy. We have a Prime Minister who is unaccountable to us because he knows that we here are a nation of dunce.

    He by continuing his foolish self indulgence with out dated political ideas have brought this nation to its knees, resulting in sky high taxes, taxes we cannot afford.

    He has destroyed the private economy because of his incompetence in economic matters. He expanded the government bureaucracy to ease the unemployment he caused and increase taxes even more to pay for that mistake.

    He goes begging across the world to fill the country’s income shortfall. He begs every nation who would have pity on us, turning us into the beggars of the world who we are, while he and his party continue to destroy all civil institutions through nepotism and crony-capitalism.

    The lack of proper jobs here cause many to turn to the underground economy to put food on the table. They not surprisingly secure their underground trade through imported guns.

    With a failed civil structure, and so many guns on the street, Hell has set up shop here, bringing death and mayhem in its wake.

    What a sad state we are in?
