    Only cowards gang up on one person and do this kinds of wickedness. I pray for our men to invite Christ/Yeshua in their hearts and take that same energy and spread the gospel wherever they go. Be an example to the young one who are coming up and looking at what they are doing. May Yahweh bless them.

    Crimes happen all over the world, no amount of police or education can stop it. It is the individual that has to see the wrong he/she is doing and ask for forgiveness and make a difference in his life.

    When people allow evil spirit to enter their heart, they with do all sorts of wrong things and think they are justified in what they do.

    So many people against one they wanted to kill this guy. I hope justice will be served on this one.

    @Dominic_Is_Ours. But the incident did not took place in Laplaine. And to the victim get well soon. And to those who inflicted the wounds to this dude violent is not the answer. Having a criminal record is not a badge of honor. Do good and good will follow you , do bad and bad will follow you KARMA is no respecter of person. I am just sick and tired of having to come on DNO each time only to read disturbing news.

      Dominicans can fight? You learn something new everyday :-o 8-O

    Some Dominicans want to imitate the “bad man” mentality and actions that is prevalent in places like the inner city garrisons of Kingston, Jamaica. Fortunately, this twisted mindset remains popular mostly among the uneducated and unproductive members of Dominican society, the ignorant few who consider it a badge of honor to sit up in Stockfarm with a violent story to brag about. The type who believe that being feared and avoided means that they are powerful and respected. The type who receive regular visits from and encounters with the Police. The types whom are considered a nuisance, curse and embarrassment within their own communities. Right thinking Dominicans are not at all sympathetic to the arrests and incarceration of these types and only hope that these dysfunctional jerks could be kept locked away for far longer periods of time. Let us all say a joyful good-bye to those among us who find it necessary to gang up on a man and stab him repeatedly.

      is it only here there is crime? Train your children well and they will do good. Examples because you are one who blame others when they do wrong. For you is the PM. Wrong is wrong and we need to tell our children they are wrong when they are and they will grow up thinking differently and not like some of us who blame others for our shortcoming and wrong doing @ Dominica_Is_Ours
