One reply on “New Montrose man dies after being stabbed in Kingstown”

  1. Sad to say, many Vincentians rejoice when they hear about these deaths, claiming it rids our land of the scum of the earth while making the country safer for the living.

    Several years ago, a well known professional made the same claim to me. A couple of years later, he himself was murdered. His assailant was never aprehended.

    Which leads me to my point: what good is it when one criminal kills another criminal or even a law-abiding person?

    Our incompetent, lazy, indifferent, poorly movitated and training so-called police force have much to answer for in being inable to solve or produce the evidence necessary for convictions in many of the murders in a 2×4 country where every knows and macoes everyone else.

    In many cases, there are a good list of suspects and possible informants. After a short time, the investigation is halted. The inability of the police to do proper investigations speaks for itself and contradicts the laughable assertion that we live in a “police state”.
