    Use Crimestoppers 1800 8477 (TIPS) if you know someone who needs help to get out of an abusive relationship even if the victim is YOU!
    Phone or report online crimestoppersdominica.org and the police have to investigate. It may just be the push the victim needs to alter their mind set and decide to become a survivor. A visit from the police may also force the perpetrator to stop and think and realise he has a serious problem.
    I reported my friends situation and the police visit shook both of them and I believe saved her life. They are still together but are safer for the intervention. They still don’t know it was me.

But alas, we need some badmen in Dca again :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Cuddos to the first respinders, ie nurse and ambulance personnel. I pray that this is the last time this man will abuse this young lady. Death is usually the reward for staying in abusive relationship. Poeple please learn, domestic violence is not a manifestation of love. Get out before its too late. Get out now. This young lady was warned on many occassions, I hope this time she learns.

      Yes good advise…and also when some women try to leave they threaten them..so in that case report them to the police before it gets worse although some of them still end up murdering them you..those basters must not be at the prison eating states money while people grieving. If them know hanging is the punishmeny them fellas aint going to think of murdering…I always say is when murder reaches on the doorstep of pm or president and the rest then they will bring back hanging until then they care not.

    Did the police meet him sleeping or people caught him and just handed him to the police? I am asking because of late so many criminals committing Crime and all we hearing is the police investigating and their investigation never seems to lead to an arrest. I just find they need to make better use of inspector Mills because he has too much free time to call talk show to defend Skerrit and so much criminals escaping

    I want to applaud our district Nurse for her quick response to the scene and the major part she played in getting these girls stable. It is not mentioned here but we the people of Grand Fond thank you Nursey.

    He should be charged with attempted murder and be given the severest sentence. There is no justification for this wicked, evil action.
