  1. Our Government tells us that young males, quote; “have chosen to invest in low-end but dangerous gun violence and have become “armed entrepreneurs”, living illegally off the fat of the land, making absolutely no contribution to the country’s development, sucking from it, and on innocent law-abiding people of all walks of life.”

    Week after week day after day these tragedies goes on and on in this our never-ending hell. Murder, rape, burglary, child sex abuse! Man stab, man chop, woman hurt! Murder, rape, burglary, child sex, muggings, man dead!

    When will all this come to an end? Yet these things are all too familiar when we choose the road that we have taken and follow folly in our economic policies. We champion Venezuela and follow them likewise along their disastrous pathway.

    “As if coping with constant food and medicine shortages were not enough for crisis-weary Venezuelans, many live in constant fear in a country where three people die violently every hour.”

    Murder rate soars in Venezuela, forcing population to take extreme precautions to stay alive amid food and medicine shortages South American nation registered 26,000 homicides last year, 89 per 100,000. That’s 15 times the global average, murderers often kill for smartphones and a Teacher Yamileth Marcano’s younger brother Willis was stabbed to death for his.

    Our ordinary experience here in SVG differs little from Venezuela’s, yet our Government who are responsible for our security, negligently rings their hands, as we continue to suffer the consequences of their economic folly!

  2. I’ve seen the image of that gruesome and barbaric killing. I do hope the murderer or murderers are caught.
    The community of Stubbs need to assist in these investigations and stop being tight lip. This is the third gruesome killing, subject to correction, that took place in that community in recent years, up to this point still unsolved
