    Mr. Chance, do you think there was a reason/ merit as to why the police report did not disclose the names of the victims in their initial release?

  2. Why aren’t these people protecting themselves by installing cameras? It beats me that people are not protecting their home sand lives, but instead rely on the police to do that for them.
    Even Saboto get caught with his pants down when his wife and child were attacked.
    I am asking the Commissioner of police to help these people get the necessary help and protect their lives and property. Get trained police to give seminars in every town and village to make people aware of how easy it is to get a community to protect its people. It can cost less than $10,000 for an entire community to protect itself.
    Neighbours don’t have to be outside to see what’s happening around their homes. They can be warned of intruders before they get close to do any damage. Alarms can also deter intruders and folks can have pictures of the intruders to give the police. Let me advise the NDP to setup a group to study how to protect Vincentians and let them go into the communities to explain their findings.
    This is one way the NDP can be talking to all Vincentians without any discrimination based on political affiliation: This one way to bring Vincentians together. NDP, ULP are all being affected by these criminals.

    1. Sorry there is no such thing as protecting yourself with a camera. You may be able to catch the perpetrator after the face but having a cameras is on protection against an invasion of your home.

  3. Careless reporting!!! Police do not identify them yet make an assumption qnd name them…..smh. where’s your duty of care?
