The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Ah what a day! What a day! The ra­bid feast on honey. The sick prey on the strong, the weak over­power the healthy, and the poor seize the wealth of the rich. Imag­ine that. Men of lit­tle worth who some­how at­tract the at­ten­tion and love of women, who, other than their gulli­bil­ity to be­lieve the rats, who are worth more than their weight in gold, must dig­nify them­selves at the ex­pense of our moth­ers, sis­ters and po­ten­tial wives. And those of us who de­light in watch­ing, en­joy­ing and con­demn­ing the hap­less vic­tim have lit­tle shame, no com­pas­sion, and no morals our­selves, and so like the scum who ridicules a woman who trusted him, we have lit­tle value. For we take plea­sure in the wicked­ness done to oth­ers, vic­tim­ize the vic­tim all over again and then beat our chest at how right­eous we are. Hyp­ocrites and fools. Do we stop to think it could have been my daugh­ter, my mother, my sis­ter or my wife? What a day, when men find plea­sure in the demise of their women folk. A na­tion on the brink of moral col­lapse, not be­cause of what the vic­tim did or did not do but be­cause of our at­ti­tude in glo­ri­fy­ing the vic­tim­izer by our re­sponse to his ac­tions. Ah what a day! - John Joseph The IMPACS Mys­tery

It is ob­vi­ous that the noose of IMPACS is tight­en­ing. - Richard

Tim Was Left No Choice! How did Red got in­volved in that? Is Red the man­age­ment of Choice? When one has a job, one must con­form to man­age­ment, be­cause they are the ones pay­ing you. I do not know the story be­hind Tim; maybe it was some­thing he did wrong or some dis­agree­ment he had with man­age­ment. Please let us stop as­sum­ing and in­ject­ing pol­i­tics into that. – Siger­bert Dega­zon Tim is a cham­pion, who dances to his own tune. Some­times you have to take a stand. Good job Tim. – Sara Dupres - Kashima Al­fred Ed­i­tor’s note: I am not sure which “star” you are re­fer­ring to here Kashima, but I would like to think that Tim will most cer­tainly see bet­ter days un­der the sun, moon and, ah yes, the stars. Stay tuned!

Win­ston Pa­trick David Brown, son of prom­i­nent lo­cal civil en­gi­neer Pat Brown, be­came Saint Lucia’s seventh homi­cide in the year 2013. The life­less body of the 41-year-old was dis­cov­ered in a re­frig­er­a­tor at his home in Rod­ney Bay on 15th April, 2013. Ex­actly three years later no jus­tice has been served for the grue­some mur­der of Win­ston Brown.

The fam­ily of the late Win­ston Brown is not giv­ing up and is plead­ing to fam­i­lies who have been af­fected by hor­rific crime to not al­low those cases to get cold. Wendy Brown, sis­ter of the de­ceased, and fam­ily are pa­tiently wait­ing and hop­ing that the is­land’s con­tro­ver­sial foren­sic lab will aid in seek­ing jus­tice for the mur­der of her dear brother.

“Win­ston was one of the most peace­ful, non-vi­o­lent per­sons I have ever known so he surely did not de­serve that tor­ture and vi­o­lence which led to his death.

“The whole of Rod­ney Bay was deeply sad­dened by my brother’s sud­den, vi­o­lent death and I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to ex­press my ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all the con­do­lences and sup­port that my fam­ily has re­ceived from friends, rel­a­tives and the pub­lic. I will not give up un­til jus­tice has been found for the mur­der of Win­ston.”

The late Win­ston Brown.
