  1. SHOOT TO KILL Antigua’s answer to black persons on island. Plantation hardening of emotions towards our own. Politicians have owned their instigation of police against their own people while Corruption and self enrichment is protected!

  2. Yall already know who did it. But yall wanna do yall lil cover up because its someone in the force.

    I’m sure there wasn’t a reason for a gun to be pulled out. Nothing to justify a man being killed. I hope to see swift justice for this man. Chupz. Yall need to stop this foolishness. These officers in the uniform angry for no reason, it’s not the first time he a rough up ppl just this time someone end up dead.

  3. Shoot to kill , yes the order of the day. They don’t have to band their belly as the mothers and fathers who’s sons are not given a second chance. Shoot to kill those young me our education system failed. Shoot to kill the poor that is caused by years of political corruption and greed. Shoot to kill those that do not have a voice for themselves. Foreign police Shoot and kill because you do not feel any kinship. It will come to an end .

  4. Maybe law enforcement should start investing in taser guns also, to lessen the chances of fatal outcomes in situations like this. sometimes a person may be simply having a psychotic episode.

  5. “They had to see a burnt body, shot up bodies, chopped up bodies, some decomposed. All of these play on the minds of investigators,” the top cop told media at a press conference on Friday….”“Mental health issues must be given special attention and law enforcement must be provided with resources,” he said. see “Police given counselling amid 2021’s prolific murders, Annual crime stats also reveal surge in burglary, break-ins and praedial larceny”

    One wonders if those critical of law enforcement would be willing to volunteer to be in their shoes even for one day? These officers put their life at risk and we would never be able to properly compensate them. Many of us would not even wish such a career for our children. More has to be done to support them, which should include proper counseling
