    They should start giving these murderers the death penalty to stop all these murders.

    Skerrit has turned Dominica from Good hope to now bad hope and Good will to bad will. These are things we never heard of before. Good Hope was had such a good reputation before and now it has joined the list. I have much more to say about the no law no Constitution of Skerrit but I will hold my peace now because families, love ones and friends are torn apart in grief and pain

    I firmly believe if you deliberately take a fellow human being’s life , you should forfeit yours. Sympathy to the relatives of the victim. I hope that the Justice System would do you justice. These senseless murders must stop. We have to take a hardline stance against murder while putting specific initiatives in place to mitigate against this scourge.

    The curse of the UWP is plaguing the country!
    Today they are pointing fingers. Too late now the damages have been done.

    My word!! Why all these killings – useless killings? Have we really forgotten how to resolve our differences amicably or is it that we now give little or no respect for human life? This is indeed troubling. My most sincere condolences to both families. To all our citizens, let us all come together and say “enough is enough”.
