  1. They should face the full force of the new St.Lucia Gang law.Our law enforcement persons must be applauded for quick action.We must stress police having great intelligence in all communities,continuing community policing and education to deter youth from going the negative way.Education must be a great defining moment for the uplifting of our people.Young people must complete secondary education and post secondary education ,what about the long awaited St.Lucia university.Lastly we must stress strong families with love ,respect discipline ,and a strong work ethic.The little things that are done everyday will soon become criminal actions if left unchecked.
