    killing only begets more killing, remember the person u kill have a son, daugther, brother i dont agree with robbery, and i understand that the police have a duty to protect their life on the job, but people dont take pleasure in killing… especially the police…u shouldnt have that kind of joy for killing someone, there is definately something wrong with that to me…

      Kelvin, did I miss something when I read the article? I don’t see what your comment about DA have to do with the story. Enlighten me please!

      I suppose the police had to defend themselves. As you sew, so shall you reap.

    Sometimes you are forced to go to Mosaic law:eye for eye,tooth for tooth.some people too hardhead and badboy.killing is wrong,but depriving someone of his hard-earned property,is definitely WRONG.respect your neighbor and covet not what is on the bandits.

    Wow, couldn`t they have come together to do something useful. Like forming a construction group. Was the vehicle in question a stolen one. St. Lucians make sunday an ordinary working day and look what is happening; more crime and killings in the country. We definitely need to pray more………

      You must be a real illiterate officer. Learn to read and type Sir!!!

      • April 18, 2017

        anonymous u must learn to understand what people write also. if i shoot four armed robbers its obviously that we caught them first and then they were killed after. in order to kill somebody u first have to catch them…so i dont think the officer said nothign wrong is just u misunderstand the concept of how he used the word caught

    That was extra judicial killings, I don’t care what the police them say. stealing is wrong, but so is killing. I wonder if these young men had better opportunities if they you be commuting crimes.

    May their soul R.I.P. the same thing goes on regardless of what country we come from disregard for law and order bring about the same result. Some times I wonder why the bad guys and girls talk the talk and when the full weight of the law is applied they all run in an effort to flee. Again people crime does not pay, and no one can over come that by acting bad. Can you imagine the world badest man tried to use a woman to shield himself? now thats a cowardly act. Hope that send a real message to all those concern.

    St.Lucia /Jamaica–extrajudical justice is the order of the day. It seems like the police are avenging the kiining of one of their own a few months ago.
