    “A stitch is time saves nine.”
    Crime was allowed to fester for far too long without the attention and priority given to this scourge that was urgently needed. The present state of affairs in S. Lucia should be a teachable moment for its neighbours.

    These governments need to set up a priority list: stamping out of corruption; strong adherence to rule of law; an all out assault on poverty; produce most of what we consume; eliminate political divisiveness and promote unity; cut out favouritism and promote meritocracy; create a fair electoral system; a professional police force comprised of the best and brightest of society.

    With these, we should have fewer crimes, less poverty and more progress.
