  1. The penalty for these crimes are too lenient. If a strong message is not sent
    and the severity of the penalty is not great enough for the required deterance
    then we are all playing games and kidding our selves.Just recently this Island was
    named the most beautiful Island in the Caribbean, no surprise to me, but there are
    elements out there, determined to destroy the good image of this Country. Some of
    them are just mindless humanoids with guns, others with a mind, but bent on evil to
    set fires to our Institutions, and sadly, someone wishing one to fall on his sward. Evil
    will reign be it in one with or without a Soul.
    May the Grace of Almighty God reign again upon St. Lucia that gave birth to me and to others. .
