SKN PULSE, Wednesday 8th July, 2015 -As word circulated yesterday morning on the passing of Mr. Ernest “Grey Patch” Hendricks, it was evident that the murder toll would be increased. The popular baker succumbed to his injuries resulting from a vicious robbery attempt at his bakery on Wednesday 24th June 2015.
With the 18th homicide been recorded in St. Kitts & Nevis for 2015: its worthy to note that three business men have loss their life to senseless gun-related incidents. The question many are asking: What Attempts Are Being Made By The Government To Curb Such A Trend?
While some voice give it time, others are adamant that time is of the essence. Increased gun-related activities come on the heels of increased beat patrols which in our view are done without any specific plan in mind. The threat of fear is real amongst society as the apprehension of criminals by the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is minimal at best.
Citizens are no longer baffled at the brazen acts in broad daylight as it has suddenly become even more frequent now. A typical Monday (6th July 2015) afternoon presented a movie type scene for commuters when action kicked off on the Western end of Liverpool Road. Information reaching this medium suggests that a trigger happy gun man chased his target while firing shots but to no avail. Luckily, the victim made an escape and no immediate injuries were reported.
Bearing such in mind, while political interference plagues the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, a commissioner doesn’t seems imminent, a crime plan won’t be forth coming and politicizing crime still seems to be the norm. Oh St. Christopher & Nevis, What Do We Do?
