      • No political party can fix what is happening or what’s coming on this world.
        God will !!!!!!

        • No political party can fix what is happening or what’s coming on this world.
          God will !!!!!!
          This is the reality on the ground throughout the world,
          Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
          An its going to get worst, the Bible can’t lie and must be fulfilled.

  1. What does that have to do with people frustrated and it will get worse. Are you supporting crime or you are the shooter ?.
    Everything is just politics and crack heads

  2. Every CONVICTED shooter should face the gallows. Last week our friends in Saudi Arabia just executed 81 criminals. Yes, 81. Now get the guns off the street. Too many crazy people out there.

    • Oh dear Mr. Byam please don’t bring your UPP HATRED OF “FOREIGNERS” to this story. Y’all already referred to our Caribbean Brothers and Sisters as “PAUPERS” (Bruce Goodwin on serpent show).

      Please stop it!!! It is unbecoming in 2022.

  3. 🤔🤔🤔@Conrad…”get the guns off the street,” you say⁉️
    Then why would some of those “crazy people out there,” squatting in the Parliament Building calling themselves politicians approve gun manufacturing and assembly plants to grace our pristine shores?
    I’m quite sure, that they’re not water pistols to be gifted as toys to children.
    These guns which will come from those gun factories are toys yes, but grown men/women toys.
    Now, where’s the logic in such decision making, in regards to keeping guns off of our streets?

  4. The news article stated that: “Police are probing reports the man was shot during an altercation with another man at a bar in the area.”

    Music and alcohol have a very profound way of bringing out the evil. Wherever alcohol and music are; trouble is not too far around the corner. In fact, trouble lingers in the atmosphere just waiting for the opportune situation to show its ugly head.

    That is why the cry for these bars/nightclubs to be removed from residential areas become such a NECESSARY ACTION NOW.
    We are a society that is very much reactive rather than being proactive.

    Always waiting for the event (danger) to occur and then respond to the consequences.

    The very same way that we treat our bodies. We eat whatever we feel like consuming; we drink whatever we desire; we fail to perform any proper physical exercises and not get enough rest. Then what! WHAM….SICKNESS arises, and we run to the doctor/hospital after the fact and begin treating the consequences.
    When all along if only we had adhered to healthy lifestyle practices, the illnesses would never have occurred.
    The BIGGEST “LITTLE” word in the English dictionary is the word “if”. Then when “only” comes right after it….we know how that works.

    It is just how man is.
    We reap what we sow.
    There are but TWO paths in life: GOOD and EVIL.

    We choose one. No Middle ground. No neutrality.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN? At the end of time…MANY…MANY…MANY will be using thise two word: “IF ONLY”
