  1. St. Vincent is just too small for all this crime. What is going on with the young people?! What is causing them to turn to a life of crime so young?!

  2. I really do hope that thorough investigations be conducted into these matters by the police and overwhelmingly strong evidence obtained to secure a conviction in the offences mentioned. The real ‘moment of truth’ will be the sentencing process because that’s the most anticipated and interesting time the general public will be looking forward to. It’s about time enough now that our courts start imposing stiffer or better yet, FULL penalties on convicts for these serious offences.
