  1. Cow boy country we living in. Some of you speak of the police stop and searching as illegal. Well gentleman go to parliament and make it legal. Again I am not seeing police patrolling as nearly as they should. It was a poor showing by the police during and after the LOL fete. Cars were broken into by the hundreds- guess the fete organizers need to hire security enough to cover the event. However, the after was inexcusable. The drunk drivers just left and caused several accidents . This should have never happened and could have resulted in the lost of lives , innocent lives also .

  2. What the hell is going on in my beloved Antigua?

    Has anyone else noticed the silence from our government ministers, police authorities and the Prime Minister himself?!

    This rising crime rate has to be nipped in the bud, because once it takes hold there’ll be no return to normalcy.

    If Gaston Browne doesn’t address the nation, and inform us of the measures that the ABLP will take to halt this rise, then he needs to be kicked out of office, so that the next party can take crime and the economy SERIOUSLY!

    IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO DO SOMETHING PRIME MINISTER BROWNE …

      The chickens are simply coming home to roost! These types of criminal activities had their incubation period in the late 1980’s, when, Our politicians laid the eggs(street gangs – blue collar criminals to accommodate, to accommodate the white collar criminals, in the polyester suits and ties who’re running and facilitating the street level, sagging pants, prostitutes, robbers…you can ask Gaston & Asot about #Red_Shut…Baldwin about #Green_House Posse…Cutie about #White_House Posse and Lester’s #Dan Dada Krew!) All of these were apart of the criminal enterprises of the 1980’ to the 2000+ TIME PERIOD, the incubation period which hatched our present breed of street criminals, and, and, and, as you can tell, the criminals are also entrenched in many GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, so, there are and should not be any surprise whenever, CRIMES such as these occur.

      Brace yourself, because unless the government cleans its own HOUSES, of the criminal activities entrenched in them, then its counterpart #STREET CRIMES will only get worse.

  3. World in “Crysis”!

    Our poor nation. We suffer the consequences of our evil way of life.
    Let it be known to all; that justice from the ALMIGHTY is SURE.

    We may escape the justice system of man, but NO WAY will be escape giving account to the God of creation.

    The heart of man is evil.
    The people who are involved in these brutal onslaughts of taking another’s life can repent and turn from their wicked ways. Justice will be served though.

    “You can’t be wrong and get right. No matter how hard that you try. If you think you get away, you better think twice.” Those were words from a song done by Jimmy Cliff.

    Truth be told. As we go into this demonic carnival festival, people must be more vigilant. The enemy is on the rampage to destroy as many lives as possible.
    The party shows such as LOL and others are demonic. People love evil pleasure rather than righteousness.

    The mere fact that one dubs a show “LOL”…Lots of liquor….is not hiding the fact that it is something evil. We know the negative effects of alcohol. The documentation is there to show what consumption of alcohol has done to countless millions of people worldwide.

    Government authorities should have never given any license to conduct any show that carries that title” LOL”. Yes, I know it can carry a different name and have the same result.

    When will we have people who stand up for the good? As we race towards the end of this world, we will see more of these evil murders and violence perpetrated by demonic influenced men.

    What profit do we get from attending these fetes and parties? Temporary pleasure! It makes no sense whatsoever.

    It is time to wake up, people.

    Do we not see that our lifestyle is only causing misery and pain?

    Two choices in life: RIGHTEOUSNESS AND WRONGTEOUSNESS

    HUMANITY LOVES AND PREFERS THE LATTER. YET STILL WE EXPECT GOOD RESULTS. HOW FOOLISH.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: WARNING TO ALL WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THESE CRIMES: YOUR DAY OF RECKONING WILL COME!

  4. Sorry to hear. I grew up there. @Frankly speaking – Agree about the patrols but for the show what is security supposed to do, take away people’s keys? What do you expect from a show called Lots of Liquor? Best to stay home.

  5. So much police presence during the day and barely any at night when they should be constantly patrolling 24-7. Every year all these young recruits complete training and all they do is walk around town harassing people trying to prove a point. The Police need to make their presence felt especially at night because they would get the opportunity to issue more tickets for traffic violation and scare off would be criminals.

  6. EVIL BOUND UP IN THE HEART OF MAN: FACE THE TRUTH

    The funny thing about mankind is that we expect to live as we please and still enjoy good benefits of life. It just does NOT work that way. The concept of Cause and effect is an integral aspect of life. There is no getting around that.
    We reap what we sow.

    This world is a cesspool of corruption and evil. The heart of man is wicked. We have turned away from the Creator and now we are reaping the consequences.

    Be aware that all the carnival fetes and other shows will bring along violence and pain. The main motive to is to destroy. People must learn to be aware of this fact. All the feting and drinking will only bring destruction. Carnival is NO way a celebration of emancipation. It is an evil and demonic activity that destroys lives. Again, I emphasize we reap what we sow.

    We cannot expect to be involved in all this immoral feting, drinking and other evils and enjoy good blessings. It just does not work that way, my friend.

    People do not like to hear the truth. The hard cold TRUTH hurts. It hits home where we hate it most because it messes with our lifestyle. It cuts to the heart like a two-edged sword.

    But truth must be told. If it offends you..then obviously you are a weak heart and coward.

    Truth should not offend but edifies and encourages proper behaviour.

    Unfortunately, the majority of the people will refuse to adhere to truth and instead follow evil because that is the natural inclination of human nature. You can become part of the minority that seeks after righteousness.

    We are in the last days of human history and the evil will become more intense.
    People: WAKE UP. SET BEFORE US ARE TWO WAYS OF LIFE. WE CHOOSE.
    GOD WILL NOT FORCE US TO FOLLOW HIS WAY. AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE CANNOT SAY THAT ANYONE MADE US TO IT THIS WAY OR THE OTHER WAY. THIS IS A PERSONAL CHOICE FOR EACH ONE.

    HENCE, JUDGEMENT WILL BE UPON ALL MAN.

    LOOK AROUND: SEE THE RESULTS OF OUR EVIL WAYS FOR THE LAST 6 000 YEARS. COMMON SENSE SHOULD TELL US THAT WE HAVE GONE ASTRAY AND NEED TO TURN THE OTHER WAY.

    THE ROAD TO DESTRUCTION IS WIDE AND VERY EASY TO TRAVEL.

    THE ROAD TO EVERLASTING LIFE IS NARROW AND REQUIRES DICIPLINE AND FAITH.

    WHICH ROAD ARE WE GOING TO CHOOSE?

    WORLD “CYSIS”: WHO WILL HEED TO THE CALL TO TURN TO THE RIGHT WAY? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS?

  7. Thank you very much @WORLD “CRYSIS”: END SOON COME. Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.
