  1. Story have two sides this woman use to sell drugs to those youths and was having an affair with 1 of them there is a reason why she was being killed

  2. BURNHAM YOU AND YOUR OTHER RACIST CABALS WHO WERE BLAMING THE GOVT FOR THE KILLING PLEASE ASK GUYANATIMES TO PUBLISH THE NAMES OF THE KILLER AND THEIR PICTURES IN THE HEADLINE OF THEIR NEWS PAPER AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT ITS THEIR OWN PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMMITTED SUCH GRUESOME ACT.GUYANATIMES IS A PRODUCT OF THE PPP.THEY ARE MAKING EVERYTHING HEADLINE BUT THIS TRIPLE MURDER IN BERBICE THAT WAS COMMITTED BY ITS OWN PEOPLE WAS NEVER MADE MENTION OF.WHAT DO U HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS RACIST?ITS SO SAD HOW THAT COUPLE HAD LOST THEIR LIVES TO THE HANDS OF THOSE YOUNG VILLAGE CRIMINALS BUT JUSTICE WILL TAKE ITS COURSE.I DO LOVE THE WAY CRIME ARE NOW BEING SOLVED IN GUYANA.

  3. So many ignorant people, just blinded by racism. Crimes are solved, perpetrators are caught and yet it’s the fault of the government. Most of these areas that are targeted are predominantly Hindu guyanese. These people are being targeted and attacked by their own. It’s ur neighbours children, uncle, brother, friends. It’s the people u know and who know u and ur routine. It’s time to be vigilant, u know ur neighborhood, u know the gangster and drugs user…assist the police in protecting u instead of playing the blame game. Changing the government again wouldn’t make any difference. This problem wasn’t created in the last 9mths since the present government was elected. It is the result of bad parenting, poor education system , lack of youth resources and joblessness. The people of Guyana have to work together to eliminate the bad influence in the communities and be part of the solution.

  5. BURNHAM AND OTHERS,STOP SEEING THI S TRAGIC INCIDENT AS BEING POLITCAL AND LETS WORK TOGETHER AS ONE PEOPLE,ONE NATION AND ONE DESTINY TO FIGHT AGAINST CRIME.ITS NOT THE GOVT NOR LAW ABIDING CITIZENS THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BUT INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE CRIMINAL MINDS AND INTENT SO WE AS ONE PEOPLE NEED TO SIT DOWN AND COME UP WITH PLANS AND STRATEGIES TO COMBAT THESE CRIMINALS RATHER THAN TO BLAME IT ON THE GOVT OF THE DAY.WE ARE THE VILLAGERS AND WE HAVE TO FORM GROUPS AND PROTECT OUR TERRITORY.

  6. THE NEW GOVT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FO THIS,ITS UR OWN VILLAGERS,THE DRUNKIES KILLING THEIR PEOPLE SO U RACIST WRITERS U NEED TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE AND STOP BLAMING THE GOVT.DURING PPP TIME IN OFFICE IT WAS WORST AND NON OF THESE CRIMES WAS SOLVED BUT NOW THEY ARE BEING SOLVED SO U RASIST BASTARDS,U NEED TO FIRST TAKE THE BEAM OUT OF UR EYES BEFORE TALKING ABOUT THE NEW GOVT.

  7. A lot of crime is taking place since this government took control…and they should leave the office before Guyanese start making a mockery of government

  8. The PNC is failing the Guyanese people miserably! How many of those criminals arrested are soldiers? Granger was a soldier, Joseph Harmon was a soldier, Robert Pyle was a soldier. The two other soldier that was driving the other car after staking out Brassington’s house were. A large number of soldiers are known to be spying on PPP supporters home. Granger needs to resign now!!!
