    It is one thing to point fingers at a victim of circumstances like that man; forgetting that we are all vulnerable to something, some disease in our body; check yourselves people you will find you may not be a thief, but your body is also diseased, and you may not know it!
    When I was 13 years old a dynamite exploded in my hand!
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahah: causing me to live with two amputated fingers and another severely damaged. I was able to function because of my academics, but had I remain in Dominica I might be a thief too!
    And so if one go to Wesley there is a guy with a weathered arm they call him Hanzie, his name is McDonald; he is my nephew, I watch him struggle all of his life.
    As in the developed world where there is a system in place via social security helping sick people legally the same should be in Dominica.
    Every comment here wish that sick man evil, some of you want them to bury him under the jail, rather than giving some medical and financial help!

    “He’d look real nice with an eye patch and a black felts hat and a black trench coat.”(No Name Idiot).
    And that’s how stupid our people are! No empathy, nor sympathy for a man who is disadvantage: so, he is a a thief; I am not condoning stealing, nevertheless; have anyone of you talking down at him as if he is a dog, ever stop to think that his circumstances caused him to be the way he is?
    You people criticize and look down on him and his amputated arm, if he has one arm, it is difficult for him to function.
    There should be a system in place where he he should be supported by the nation social security system.
    So, what if he has been stealing all of his life? Could it be that he was born with some sort of chemical imbalance which causes his behavior. Imbalance is when there are (is) too much or too little of some substance in the body that helps it to function normally; (I leaving out something here): in area of the body, the term usually reference imbalance in the brain.

    Mental illness comes in various forms. He should be examined and given some help. Who is going to employ a one hand man? He has to eat just as the rest with two hands. Give the man a break. Some of us have more than we need but won’t stretch a hand to help a thief. This man needs help. He’s not selling drugs, not importing guns and ammunition, not raping boys and girls. Give de man a break, man.

      I agree with you. Where is the church members that always putting people down. Mental Illness is real. Stop making fun of a sick person. Dominica needs a home a good home for mental illness not what they have. Jesus was hung between two thieves and he told the thief you will be in paradise with me. He had compassion. Stop crushing sick people. Like ChiChi he was mentally ill. All the people need is a bit of love and maybe a plate of food. Dominica Dominica. Where is the Christians that thinks everyone is going to hell. Hell was not made but for the Devil and his angels. Wake up.

      How many like him do we need to “give a break” and how many times must we “give him a break?” I am happy that you are in no position to give him a break because we would have many breakers making life miserable for us.

        @just saying If you are not from the 1960s era, then you don’t know how nice and sweet Dominica was. You are now living in the “leftovers” eating from the stale remains. And honestly, I do feel sorry for you (this generation) who are living at the height of crimes, corruption, filth, and in a Dominica whose citizens were very proud of. We had no Chinese, Haitians, Iranians, Venezuelans, Cubans, and CARICOM people chocking our Freedom and way of life. Food was cheap and free. One big breadfruit cost 25 cents and dasheen wasn’t placed on scales. Young people lived to be 80 and 90 years old. Today in Dominica they barely make it past 30. In the 1960 Dominica was the paradise of the Caribbean. Today it’s just a big Hub for Haitians to pass through to other countries. Dominica is in shambles right now. So behave your ignorant self. I’m pretty sure that megzo looks much younger than you.

          “In the 1960 Dominica was the paradise of the Caribbean.” Lol! If you grew up in the 1960s’ your memory in 2024 would be fading and worse again, obscured by nostalgia and romanticism. Everything about then was better than now to you. :mrgreen:

            You are one very foolish, if not beyond stupid!
            “If you grew up in the 1960s’ your memory in 2024 would be fading and worse again, obscured by nostalgia and romanticism.”

            Let me prove to you how you are ignorant and dumb!

            So, what is the definition of this word: “romanticism?”
            “Romanticism can be define as a movement in the arts and literature that originate in late 18th century, emphasizing inspiration, subjectivity, and primacy; of an individual.
            Because your IQ is beneath the average, that might be complicated for you to understand.

            So, try this: “romanticism” simply means the state or quality of being romantic!
            Used as a nun; you could contend ” his father would temper that romanticism.
            I wonder if people like you and ds ever wonder if there are people reading the garbage you write; no wonder you all does not have a name; fictitious people are usually frauds, perhaps even jail birds oui!
            Smart phone, and computer cannot educate you if you lack some formal…

    According to the Biblical law, it appears this one armed “teeefff” has been punished for a similar prior criminal offense but has yet to learn his lesson.

      The bible says if your hands offend you take it off. Maybe thats what he did. He might have to take the other one out.

    That man been stealing since he was a young boy in the late 80’s. I remember him being sent to jail about 1987 for stealing bags of Pat Rolle coconuts on Hillsborough Estate when he was caught right handed. Yup, Moise was the magistrate in Senjo Court. A young man then, I remembered the magistrate begging him to put water in his wine before its too late. The said Magistrate Moise told him, “I will go a likkle easy dis time but doh do it again young man”. Sadly, he did not learn. He needs a very longggggggg sentence if caught and convicted this time around. A thief only becomes more brazen and deadly over time :twisted: :twisted: . Dont hide him, turn him in if you sight him! :twisted:

      You want to send to prison for a long time by the same justice system that fines a man $5000 for trying to smuggle firearms into the country.
      Who is a greater menace to society?
