    An everyday occurrence all across the land.

    So much crime in such a small country, unbelievable!

    The people are crying out for leadership but there is none!

    What kind of government do we have? Life is very comfortable for the governmental elite but society is a toilet for the rest of us. They go to hospitals overseas, build walls around their homes to keep themselves safe and free from theft, send there children to elite or overseas schools, eat special foods, make the poor pay top price for cooking gas, etc…Who are the dumb ones easily fooled who continue to allow this?

      Y’all blame the government for every single thing.

    • Castroy says:

      Crime has always been an issue in this country as far back as my grandmother’s stories. So you see the government is not the problem. The people are. But bringing back the death penalty may slow it down

    Lostpet :
    What is your plans/programmes projects to stop crime .Once again crime comes from the heart, and to a lesser extent good parenting.If your heart is corrupt, that will be your lifestyle.
    Great leadership, vibrant economy ,low employment, cheap food , no protective wall to keep out the poor , and there will still be crime.
    Get rid of hatred, envy,badmind,grude,covetousness, greed,and try contentment,love and kindness along with respect for others and their properties and you will see the different in every society.

    The government hands are tied because if SVG had the death penalty they might have think twice before they tried to comet a crime.

  5. Everyman is a king says:

    Young men want sex they forget how to jerk off.
