  1. “ALP crime wave”

    The ALP has now imported drive-by killings to Antigua, what a calamity. Murders now up to 7.

  2. Antigua is becoming like the Wild,Wild,West. Or is it already. Please wear your masks and your bulletproof vests.You need them both for protections.

  3. Now how the f**k ALP causes driver by killing in Antigua like really u don’t sound intelligent get a life wat we young people need to do is to stop the violence With each other an innocent person died wow it is sad we can do better u don’t need to solve everything with violence.

    • I agree with you. This is not politics, we have 2 dead due to criminal activity. Our country needs to be more proactive in the fight against crime. We need to reach out to the young ppl, and at least try to show them the way

      Some will fall through the crack, and become criminals, but at least they had a fighting chance, and if they fall on the wrong side of the law, then the law will run it’s course

    • “ALP criminals run riot”

      What you people need is deportation, so civilized people can continue to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this island.

  4. Live by the sword you die by the sword. This war isn’t gonna stop until the two main rivals kill each other
