    Dominica does not grow or manufacture cocaine so I am more interested in who, where, and how she got it from – and all the other cocaine in Dominica!? Put the cocaine importers with access to boats, flights and big positions away and save Dominica – this poor little teacher is just a footsoldier in someone else’s drug trading business!

      This is a very accurate observation.

      The sale of cocaine has been going on for a long time in Dominica. Why, oh why is it not being stopped at the point of entry :?:

      The police should handle this young woman with velvet gloves and extract from her the info they need to nail the big guys at the top an dry up the source. They would have to be careful in their dealings with Ms. Charles because it could cost her if those higher up in the chain knew she ratted them out.

      Cocaine is a dangerous drug. It is literally a matter of selling poison on the streets. This drug affects the brain in a way that warps the personality and can result in serious criminal behavior.

      Studies have also shown that marijuana damages part of the brain responsible for memory and learning. Regular marijuana smoking sometimes results in a drop in school grades and students dropping out of school.

    I’m not one to judge but i am very disappointed in u..didn’t u think of ur girls when u were introduced into the circle …or did u really think u were doing it for them…well sah..didn’t u think that he/they were only using u to do his/ their dirty deeds.Did u really think that u could have sent this go without being caught like really..or are u just gullible.So how can u be innocent because u claim u didn’t do anything because they didn’t hold u with anything…smh it was ur name on the file as the sender for the package. This here is all the evidence the state needs to hold u to the crime…we all make mistakes, we are all sinners so who am I to cast stones, however I will pray for your girls and your mother cause this is such an embarrassment on them….

    No one is a thief unless they are caught. To all of you who are quick to pass judgement are you free of sin. This young woman has degraded herself and family she has that price to pay. Please let us pray for her instead of enjoying her trials and tribulation. this is typical of Dominicans though . They have no empathy,sympathy for others not until they to are in the rut.

    Here we go again with another UWP supporter not willing to work hard for what she wants but want to get money the easy way. This reflects on how these Uneducated Wicked People are so desperate to get in power simply to fatten their pockets on Labour money, occupy Labour State Palace and experience Labour Power. But just as this drug-trafficker will NOT be getting rich in Labour Land any time soon, so will the UWP never taste power in Dominica while faithful Labourites are still living!!!

      Here we go again with another labour supporter, still leaving in dunceland. I’m in no way condoning what was done but the way things are in Dominica can drive people to do real stupid things. When you see ministers of government and other people in high positions who don’t play by the books, getting richer, driving and changing their high rides ever so often, travelling whenever they want to where ever they want while you are hard working teacher have to use the little pittance that they give to go back into the classroom to work, feed people children and also use that same money to fight your way thru this wicked system every month, its a real hassle.

      Yes LabourOfLove, it is really rough in DA. Some of us can avoid the temptation of using bad ways to feed our hunger but others can’t. Uneducated wicked people? I wonder what position you hold and how much you are thriving? Oh yeah I forgot your position was handed down to you after shouting labarrrrrrr and you thrive on wigs and…

        you speak like one of us.
        heres how it feels being a teacher. no pension. no health insurance. no little motivation from any corner. 1400 for many of us. we work all day. take books and papers home to correct. our weekends are spent infront of the computer preparing lessons for the next week. sometimes we dont finish, maybe we have over 20 of them to present therefore our week is spent doing more lessons.
        we look at those who cant learn. we go home and have sleepless nights on what we can do to change that.
        we buy materials on our little salary because the government doesnt provide for us. we get no allowances for materials. the supervisors pass by and they want to see materials being used in the classroom. well, its on our pocket.
        we give snacks to the hungry ones, pencils to share is a daily task.
        sometimes, getting to work and back is a struggle depending on where you work.
        at the end of the day, the salary disappears in bill. then parents blame u for their kids not…

I wonder what people like you doing now , now that there is no red clinic ? please give me a break, The woman is an individual a private one what that have to do with UWP , sort. On the other hand i really hope all what you mention , you are part of them because i would hate to think you are a pauper.

    You see the teaching profession in Dominca can really drive you to do that. It is frustrating. After years and years of service for the same pay and no appointment. What else is left for you to do. This is the only profession where one has to use their own salary to do their work. Aint this system a whole lotta b.s. Fix the system and treat the teachers better. It’s all about survival peeps..Yes, I know we all have choices.

      I completely disagree with you; smart economics allows one to invest well in his/her finances. For example, many of these young people possess cell phones that cost close or over a $1000; what is the logic of this? Wouldn’t it be better at the time to purchase a cheaper phone and invest the rest of the money into something wiser to generate more money?

        A teacher spends quite a lot of money buying materials for his her/her classroom, giving children lunch and breakfast aslo money to pay bus fares .. They also have to buy stationery for children, so if one can spend all that somone else why not on themselves. No all teachers have expesive phone.. In this service there is no smart economics..

    • May 20, 2015

      This again is pure crap ! opportunities are given to upgrade yourself,use it as I did and you will see an increase in your money…man you guys not easy…is the government that cause that right?…oh boy oh boy.so why you as a teacher not doing the same?I guess your salary must be real big….I rest my case.

      • Extremely
        May 21, 2015

        Of course is pure crap when people like ok benefit from a kiss a**. Yes there are opportunities for upgrade but where is the finance for it? Not even a banana is free anymore. I am happy that you had the opportunity to upgrade but sadly only people like you seem to benefit since you sing their welcome song.

        Education is very expensive and when you ask the government for assistance it seems like you have to compromise to get what you want. The government will invest money sometimes in the wrong people. As a teacher willing to upgrade I went for assistance and was told that everything lies with the PM. Finally got word that I could not get and that there was no money there for that purpose. Yet still those sitting by the roadside looking at me go to work get all the money they want from their PM. Well you ok not easy, let those in the fire call for their water sa kwae toneh.

  18. The Facts
    May 18, 2015

    It is disappointing to know that a teacher was involved in trafficking. It was brave of her to have attempted to export this drug. Did she not think that she could have been caught?
    When someone in her position is caught, arrested and charged they are automatically placed on leave, some without pay based on the infraction. If they are found guilty and sentenced, they lose their job.
    Is it worth transporting illegal drugs, to be even tempted to do so? What of their name? They incur a bad reputation and a criminal record.
    The drug had to be given to her by someone. She should divulge the name of the person responsible.
    She is guilty for it is a crime to be found with illegal drugs. Nearly everyone who is arrested plead not guilty. It is a formality. This is, they may stand a chance of acquittal or reduced sentence. If they plead guilty, that is it for them; an automatic sentence. This is why they do not plead guilty even though they are guilty.

    • May 20, 2015

      To make matters worst,the estimated street value of $15000,is not event sufficient to cover the bail of 20,000.oKAY WHY IS THE GIRL PICTURE BOLD ON DNO?

        May 20, 2015

        leave the lady job alone? WAW what a true example of what a teacher should be. So are you really telling me that after teaching my children to stay away from drugs, the schools in support of drug awareness month, a drug trafficker is suppose to come into the class and teach my child?

        Children are technologically savy right now, do you not think that many of them are aware of what their teacher did? Everyone has their flaws yes, but at this point she was caught and charged, and would not be suited to teach people children. Teachers hold great prestige in society and children look up to theor teachers!

    • POSTACOMMENT
      May 19, 2015

      I guess she’ll be on half-pay until she is brought before the court. If she is found guilty she’ll lose her teaching job.

      It’s that simple.

      • May 20, 2015

        Why should she receive any pay?
        She was found with illegal drugs in her possession.
        The young man at Melville Hall, with a
        family to feed, made a judgement call and
        was terminated.
        He did nothing wrong.
        He was in a position where flexibility was always use.
        He was victimized, assuming he was leaning
        towards the wrong political party.
        Is that fair?

      God and Caesar is not the same.

      I would have some sympathy for her,

    NO TO COCAINE!!!! 1.26 pounds (572 grams) is not a little bit of cocaine. Now CDPF you must start looking at the PURITY of the substance and make the necessary charge to the crime. 572 g of 90% purity cocaine is not the same as 572 g of 50% purity. When “cut” the street value can triple or even quadruple.
