    this truly needs to be sorted

    String them up.

    It is absolutely disgusting that there is no police presence in St Georges. A tiny office on the waterside that seems rarely manned doesn’t cover it. It is a residential town with a new hotel and many yachts in the harbour that deserves the old way of police walking the beat. Ask any local where the suspect areas are. In fact, they are so obvious Ray Charles could tell you. The recent police press statement said that there is now known gang activity that has extended to St Georges, welll, hello! The old police station is being restored. Let’s reconsider and put some real policemen back in it.

    Cowards!

  5. The First says:

    Sorry, but this is a copycat of what occurred in Smiths Parish in October. Fortunately, the woman in St.Georges, unlike the first, remained unharmed. Both incidents smack of gang manipulation with dress code and method. These are dangerous criminals capable of unimaginable harm by cultivating total disregard for human life. Is it going to take another murder before stricter laws are enforced to put such culprits in prison for life? Dear People, we are in a crisis mode. Every woman, every senior living on their own is an object for exploitation and fatal harm. Do not let this underworld contamination ruin our island, our reputation.

  6. Boston Whaler Owner says:

    I need fresh bait,give them to me when caught.

  7. Bullets says:

    enough is enough, when caught they need not be ever heard from agin. Absolute scum of the earth. They know the gangs, their locations and members, time for a purge. if not a gang related activity it is probably drug fueled so get them as well

  8. justice will be served says:

    one day the little wannabes will break into the wrong place and get what they deserve20 fold

  9. hot pepper says:

    send this rubbish to prison in cuba, probably much cheaper,

  10. get it right says:

    Put them in the St Georges stocks at the town square like the good ol days, and let the public deal with them while they are bound. little punks trying to be what they hear in rap music. ban rap music.
