More hot air from politicians as rape figures rise
The bedrock of Saint Lucian society has disappeared. Sadly nothing will change while the entire justice system is on its knees or, more accurately, on its backside. Whilst the police are demoralised, the lab non-functioning, the courts closed, politicians immune, what deterrents are there for would-be criminals? Nobody seems to care enough to make something positive happen to reduce crimes. And in the meantime more people fester in BCF, and victims and their families suffer without closure.
Who is going to take responsibility for these problems or is it now too big a challenge for any party to take on?
Not until the fickle finger of fate knocks at the door of a politician will anything be done.
