  1. You said it all. However,government is not only to be blamed. One must take responsibility. The laws are also too lenient on crimes in which guns are used in the commission of those acts. Why is it most of these criminals have a common advocate or lawyer? They find solace in the bosom of this lawyer.

  2. James I am in total agreement with you on the issues. I believe that if a man has the audacity to take a life outside the meaning of self defense, then the gallows should be his ultimate destiny. I use the generic word man but women are just as wicked and should suffer the same fate.

    In Trinidad the years after Dole Chadee and his henchmen were hanged, Trinidad witnessed the highest decrease in homicides in that country. Hence my reason that the death penalty is a deterrent to crimes. The legal system is soft on crimes in st Vincent that is one of the reason ns along with the economic situation is highly responsible for the escalation of crimes in the nation.
