  1. We have been force to accept the decisions of developed countries and the United Nation as it relates to death penalty. The reason why there are so many murders is because the murderers know their right to life is guaranteed. Essentially, people murder others because they believe they are most likely to get away with it or possibly serve few years in prison. We must abandon the Privy Council and take a decision on the death penalty for the safety of our people and their right to live in peace. Whether you like it or not the death penalty is a deterrent and should be re-instated in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines if we want to stem the tide with these murders.

    The world today is far different from the past fifty (50) years. The advances in technology and jurisprudence has change the outcome of cases for the better. More importantly, the quality of evidence in murder cases has improve tremendously. When one considers the advances in forensic technology such as DNA it is safe to conclude that evidence is far more reliable and convincing than yesteryear. We also have advances in CCTV and telephone data evidence.

    All of these evidence combine can truly make an overwhelming case. It may even be more overwhelming In some cases where you have the murder weapon, tire and shoe impression, fiber, finger print, dental impressions, soil samples and anaerobic activities. We must have a serious discussion on the death penalty.

  2. When people are killed by guns many start to say “take the guns away from everyone”. Lately there have been many deaths from chopping. Are the same people going to say, “take the cutlasses away from everyone”?

  3. It is time to be really tough on crime. Please start hanging those in death roe and send a message to the others

  4. I never believe in the death penalty but since I have iwittness news and saw the amount of killing in the Country where I was born..I say HANG THEM. I Live in the US now and I am afraid to come home.look what happened to Mrs Rose daughter???
