    Dominica is the only place on the planet when there is a murder investigation we see the likes of anything that remotely resembles military soldiers on a murder scene.

    While detectives investigate: the only other presence of law enforcement officials should be police officers to secure, and guard the crime scene, until the detectives are satisfied there are no more evidence, and clues to be collect!

    What are the goons in military fatigue doing at a crime scene?

    Even if terrorism was suspected that is not the job for a a defense force, army, navy, nor marine! into; Dominica do not have such forces anyway!

    In a fools paradise anything goes, no surprises; we must expose our Dominica stupid mentality to the rest of the world!

    What’s up with those jokers in battle fatigue when the professional detectives are on the scene? But besides one death is a one death too many in this small island….something is desperately wrong with our society today.

    Underneath the wicked Cabal of this Labor Government, people are being killed in broad day light like animals and cases are never solved. It’s a waste of time for the CID to even respond. No one will be held accountable.

    Dominicans what do you expect? GON Emanuel and his wife were firebombed, an attempt to kill them. who was defending, protecting the criminal? GON Emanuel has died, may his soul rest in peace, and up to this day, no justice.

    A police officer, investigating Money-laundering, was also firebombed, an attempt to kill him. Up to today, no arrests, no charges, no court, no case.

    Just recently, a Dominica Labour Party Minister and Parliamentarian brandished a gun in Parliament. protection, defence for doing the wrong thing and behaving so irresponsibly.

    What do you expect?

    The Communications equipment for the Marigot airport was destroyed. Set on fire. Arson. Skerritt disclosed that he knew who did it publicly. Up to now nothing has happened.

    Corruption, in your face, under our noses. Dominicans know about those corrupt practices, illegal against the Constitution and that has been going on for years. No Justice.

    These black fools are cold blooded killers and send to prison for life in the worst miserable condition.

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again, our beautiful island has become a lawless place under the rule of this regime. The police force has been degraded to a private protection unit of the dictator. Everything he lays his corrupt hands on changes for the worse. When do the citizens of Dominica wake up and smell the coffee.

    Most profound condolences to the relatives of the deceased. I hope that the perpetrator is apprehended and be justly punished. Dominica is still a relatively peaceful place to live unlike many territories of the region. All efforts must be made by law enforcement, with the assistance of the public, in keeping the homicide rate to an extremely low level. One murder is too many.
