    Lawless place! Nothing will come out of that police ‘investigation’ even though the police know the identity of the perpetrator/s.

    cont’d – Possie Direct. U have already preconceived in your mind that it is crime. Do you know that persons die of natural cause? Some don’t wake in the morning (die in their sleep) and otherwise. Sorry too death is inevitable that it we all have to die at some time or the other. Death has been around for a long time and it is not going away. We just have to be prepared. Not even blaming someone can take this away. Let us therefore await to hear whether this is a crime or natural causes. Also let us not just say things without thinking. Let us wait for the facts not what this one or that one say.

    Boy you see that Portsmouth Ian Douglas described as the “Jaden patat” (potato garden) of the DLP. I hope Ian and Skerrit also realized that Portsmouth, had also become the crime scene of Dominica going back to the funeral of Rosie and the town or village that Skerrit has stripped of everything we once had. I am waiting for the final report of the police but we already getting out own vibes

      Possie Direct you seem to know alot. If you are convinced it is a crime, why instead of writing on DNO, go give the police the info. Remember they are investigating. You seem to know much even things you make up in your head without proof about who, whom caused cetain things. I would advice u though that you must not allow your mind to be a battle field. Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, Clean the mind, stop blame game. Start afresh. Eradicate the mind of unhealthy things. Flush out. Do not side any political party or person. Get a new perspective. Start thinking for yourself. Open your eyes. The world is in a pandemic. Who is to be blamed? Stop blaming anyone for Jehovah allows certain things so we can remember who he is. We are about our selfish ways blaming others for everything. We have to take charge for our own lives. We do make mistake but let us ask ourselves do we blame others. Blaming others only keeps u back since u have an excuse not to go forward.
