    • if you “tummuck” is so big, then consider reducing calories, exercising or getting your “tumock” stapled like Asot Michael.

      you big tumock might end up kill you if u dont ease off all the food.

    • It is sad when u speak of the mentally ill persons like that. Let’s hope that no one who is related to you or even you become mentally ill. You will then know what a mental condition is all about……. Remember today is mine, tomorrow will be yours…… Of course I am not condoning the act that has been perpetrated, but those who are Mentally ill needs more respect

  3. Let me tell you, this is just the tip of the iceberg. A police officer was killed by a mentally Ill man, then Jane finch by a mentally Ill woman and now smithy by a mentally Ill man and all in a very short time frame. Gaston what r u going to do about this? Antigua is full of mentally Ill vagrants all over the place like epicurean parking lot, woods parking lot, village walk parking lot, st Johns town, its rampant. You can’t get out of your car without being harassed by them for money, it’s got to stop. Now they r getting violent and killing. But as they say, they have rights too so you can’t trouble them too much, it needs to be addressed and done so with immediacy, they are now arming themselves with knives etc so they can hurt you when they feel like.

  4. Kennedy I agree this reality is of serious concern. As for that “really” commenter are you for real? A life was taken by a “mad-p” and that is the best contribution you have. SHAME!

  5. Yes plenty merntal case in villa. PM you were to fix this since 2014/6 You were to look out for your neighbours not just your blood.
    Sir Molwyn as Health minister responsible for mental hospital & fiennes has failed the elderly and the insane aka himself ( geriatric & psychiatric) . Take back the dam knighthood and give it to the minister of helps!
