    Why not initiate a gun buyback program where anyone with an unlicensed firearm, can turn it in to the authorities without being arrested or prosecuted. Many societies use these initiatives to remove weapons off the streets and make the streets safer.

    What police investigating? Crime? Here is what Jesus says about that:
    “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit” Matt. 12:33 NIV.
    In other words, if the head of Dominica is not good how on earth you all expect good fruits? If our head is preaching violence, lawlessness and demonstrate no respect for our laws or constitution then what you expect. Let’s stop fooling ourselves people. We know for a fact that an Iranian wanted criminal by the name of Aliereza Monfared was allowed to hide here for six months and we saw him on a daily basis with our senior government minister and police, when he was wanted by Interpol. Yet PM told us is a good man. The police commissioner told us of a barrel of guns that the US told them that left the US to DA. He told us they knew who shipped it and Tony told us is a BLUE barrel. Yet it disappeared and no arrest. We have a government we can’t trust and DNO I…

    I still Red and still love DNO, though they said I am always critical of the government and therefore they are not moderating most of my comments. I don’t know if DNO wants me to be supportive of the high level of lawlessness we see in Dominica today. But the truth is, I call a spade a spade. My PM Roosevelt Skerrit has destroyed Dominica and I cannot hide it out. The police has lost the respect they once had and that’s not good. In fact we no longer have a police force but the truth is, what we now have is the political Army of Skerrit, Melissa, their children, government ministers and close friends of the DLP. For example, If it was Linton or any supporter of the DLP that was rumored with the “BABY SARAH” saga, I bet you they would be jailed already and would not be able to contest another election. But it’s Blackmore, the minister of National security and Skerrit says he believes Blackmore and no damn investment. IF DNO and others were exposing the ills I would not be as…

    A 53 year old man involved in an altercation? Except for self-defence, how can one justify a physical altercation at that age? Use your brain instead of your brawn when you have a disagreement with somebody. Once would think after living on this earth for 53 years, one would learn how to deal with disagreements in non-violent ways. Too bad he had to pay the ultimate price for an indiscretion.

      Usually the person with the weapon is the aggressor. This poor guy may have been attacked and had no way to defend himself. I don’t know if that was the case this time. But….I wasn’t there.
