          What have you done as an ex-cop to assist. All you do is come on here and bash the police every opportunity you get. If you do a ratio that is like 2 murders per year. Some may say is 2 murders too much, but check out your birth country SKB do a calculation for the same period and tell me what your figures are. As an ex-cop Mr. Wise-up, be a contributor not a criticizer. Thank you Beetle.

            @ outlaw: stop flapping your pie hole and send me back st Kitts: the truth might be an offence but not a sin: don’t get upset with the facts because the record is there and reflect the proof: oh!!! I will await your deportation order: you have personal issues with st Kitts people(your head appears to far up your @$$)....I visited the island of st Kitts at most 2 times in my life::I stop police in 1980(long before”my country” had jokers like you) keep the faith; please put your what’s left of your brain in motion before: putting your mouth in gear:: I will sit on my front porch and await your order of deportation(one love!!!!(I have no reason to bash police; some of us simply highlighting the facts of certain matters in our country)...60 years and counting and never need anyone’s authorisation or clearence

              Wize-up I will not even waste my time with you any further, you surely is still lingering in the passed. We are now in 2018, not the 1980’s and 90’s. Please get in touch with reality. Your identity is all over this site, you are a born kittitian but you have surely sold your birthright, visit only 3 times, shame on you.

      When are you going to provide some information that will assist them in solving the murders? The use of that same weed gets you on high and leads you to commit all sorts of crimes

    Stop these petty arrests. You have given so many of our youth arrest records that will affect their lives forever. Why not make them just pay a small fine....or just legalize it!

      Put their behinds to do mandatory community service. They don't comply, then lock them up.

      These youths don't have the money to pay their own fine. That would be their parents paying the fine.

      NezRez, you are a very irresponsible person, no one but themselves giving themselves a record. Check the age range and tell me if you don’t see a problem. According to the law here possessing cannabis (marijuana) is still an offense here punishable with a fine or imprisonment. Please try and convince your legislators to have it removed from the law books. Stop blame the police, it’s their job to enforce the laws.

    Not every law is a just law and this is why it is important to question your leaders or better yet be very wise in determining who we choose to be our leaders
