  1. Fantastic! Don’t give these animals a second chance if the government and police forces are so incompetent at defending the ordinary man. It will become lawless,but if ordinary man starts to get their hand on guns too then it will become a ‘fairer’ playing field.. Just a thought.Let’s stand up for freedom and the rights of all in Guyana !

  2. great, have no mercy on these pigs. the government is a waste of time now they want to stop giving licenses to civilians so these pigs can continue to rob us.

  3. Great job…congrats!! Kill these animals out. Let us take back our beautiful Guyana from these barbaric beasts

  4. Well done, just shoot and kill. As the government can’t protect the state. They had all the answers while in opposition. Now it’s becoming worse and nothing is done
