    Every time it comes to crime its a black man: drugs, rape, murder, human trafficking, robbery, forgery, and corruption. Can we as a black community take a moment for reflect and serve the purpose of exiting? Is this a revelation that the black people is a cursed generation? since from bible time once it comes to black it carries a negative connotation. black= evil, black= gloomy, black= obeah, black= death. are those the reasons why black men are always on the black side?

    Well, they were not flour, white sugar, corn starch, white corn meal (flour) or other healthy, safe substance. They would do well to sell these for they could not get into trouble doing so.

    Under the leadership of Police Chief Carbon, the island nation seems to be making some inroads by systematically dealing bad blows to those involve in the drug business. I applaud him for that.
    Anyway I can understand the motive behind that drug craze and that is “quick money”. Unfortunately it is short lived because once you get involved in it, they will ultimately catch you and it will be ” all over” for you
    WE all know that today MONEY is “the name of the game”, and one has to have it in order to survive.

    But there are many other ways one can earn a living. What about tilling the land? We have the best soil in the Caribbean.
    What about asking relatives abroad to send you seeds so you could grow vegies? I think the super markets can do with fresh vegies such as carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, etc. The barrels that come in periodically will never be too packed to take the seeds.

    I know you might see that’s too much for me. Well my friends if you feed that kind of work is too tedious, you better think again because Mr. Carbon and Company is determined to “clean house” no matter what .

      I am all for law and order and obeying the law.
      Recall this is exactly what Mr. Carbon stated. Keep this in mind.
      Some negative people criticized him on this Website, saying he would not have done it or is incapable of doing it, that it is all talk. He is now showing what the Police Force under his jurisdiction is capable of doing. Applaud him. Hats off to him and the Police Force!
      D/ca needs to be cleaned up of crimes and such trafficking. When this is done, overall it will be a happy, peaceful and safe place to live. This is what the general D/can population would like to see occur.
      May the God of love and peace help them achieve this!

      Utilize your common sense. Those so-called bosses reside everywhere and under cover.
      When they sell it they will have to turnover the majority of the funds to them. Otherwise, woe to them.
      Dealing in drugs, selling and ingesting them are extremely dangerous and at a cost of lives.

    we all do things to survive, theres no guns at anyone head to do drugs its all choices dat are personally made, at the end god is the judge, bt the whole news is wrong the police are fabricating the story. they never found these men with any drug of a kind. wednesday they apprehended these guys innocently the following day which was thursday drugs were found in an open sea and they are lying and say they found these mens with drugs…. lies the police to like to scandalise and victimise peoples reputation. do y’all work and investigations properly………

        Am I correct in wanting to ascertained whether the middle young man is the son of Pollo and deceased Ferdinard from Zicack? If he is I recalled in growing up we used to call him Ferdie? He looks very, very familiar. Please correct me someone.
