  1. “…in an area where his GIRLFRIEND lives”

    VAGINA will continue to bring down men. Bill Clinton, Samson, Trump, et al

    Ladies we have the gift.

  2. Was he one that got amnesty? How many of these people were required to confirm they had a job. There is a lot of thievingness and hungry people in Antigua. They are even breaking into establishments to get food.

  3. ‘facing a fresh charge following his escape while being transported’
    Will the police accompanying him also face a deep investigation into how they allowed this to happen, how procedures must change and, proper disciplinary action?
    Seems they were lax from what has been reported.
