GOBATS ON THE RAMPAGE!
Rick, please don’t let this issue go; on behalf of all those fighting for justice we need someone to Raise Cain. We need someone who is not afraid to raise their head above the parapet, who will not be controlled by the powers that be (alluding to a previous article where it is suggested that the media is controlled.) Good article that pulls so much together. Of course St Lucia is in trouble in so many areas causing problems in all aspects of society, but the tourist industry has to watch out so the Government can’t keep burying its head in the sand. Please don’t just light the touch paper and then move on to another topic!
You are correct in every detail, Rick, and I am in total support of you publishing this article even as the inconsistent police commissioner demands an apology from the Gobats, seemingly oblivious of the many others, including our own prime minister and lots and lots of Saint Lucians, who believe that the force is corrupt. The commissioner forgets that he himself, days ago, agreed that the bad cops in the force must shape up or ship out. Ours is a pathetic state (pun intended) of “Sa ki mor an tor!” (“Too bad for the dead!”) I’ll dismiss as ignorant and colluders any one who elects to put any spin that differs from the thinking that the local police is indeed corrupt—almost beyond repair.

If they don’t want to find the killers they won’t!!! Just like Jane Tippton years back the bullet went missing on its way to Barbados, when everybody knew who did it. Same goes for the English woman Tris who was murdered and whose body was dumped on the Cap Estate, Blind eyes can’t see!!!
Interesting. So the Prime Minister of St. Lucia thinks that the local Police Force is corrupt. Let us either thank the man for his honesty or his inability to see he has opened a can of worms that he cannot shut.

The whole crime-fighting and investigative apparatus here continues to be a circus, a consequence of the baton of politicians. Sadly it is tacitly endorsed by others who know better and are in a position to help but prefer to remain silent so as to preserve their income. This article, as enlightening as it is, does not even begin to touch on a myriad of insidious problems which are really at the heart of the circus.
Oh well !! Defoe got theirs so they want theirs too. When Stiff Upper Lippers want action they want it now, while poor people who have met similar fate in St Lucia are still waiting for or have never gotten their justice. THE PRESS HAS MOVED ON. This was a professional hit; this was not the work of a sloppy Joe, so I wish them well in their quest. Question: why do you think he was assassinated ??? Start from there and work your way down. Let’s not kid ourselves you just don’t go through life and have a hit placed on you for any reason. I mean like really.
