  1. Thank you Mr. COP and great job to the Major Crime folks for this very swift action on a very important case. You all can do the job well and want to do it well but when Politics in it your hands are kinda tie, I know.

  2. I want to see the results of the investigation of Arielle Morgan and others too, why this is taking so long Commissioner

  3. Now if the recent shooting at Diamonds had been resolves as expeditious it would be a plus for the royal SVG cops. From the looks of it SVG youth are going astray. No prospects, no wok, no future, wha yo ekspek?

  4. The reason why there is more crime n corruption is because there’s nothing for the youth/young people to do. The government of the day has received vast amounts of money following the volcano on 9th April. With this he should have mapped out programmes for a clear up, repairing homes n roads etc. This would put people to work and get idle hand engaged in something better than crime. Because this is not being people are feeling bored, unmotivated n uninspired. The streets n crime becomes their friend.

    Come on Mr Prime Minister put the future of your youth n young people first. They need work, they need motivation then need encouragement and they need to be doing something.
