  1. This is the RAP culture of ‘no snitch’.
    People wake up.
    Listen to me.
    They RAP CRAP and get you to buy their trash.
    They brainwash you not to snitch and don’t help police.
    It so happen now that you have bought into their stupidness.
    Did you not notice how they kill one another before?
    Well it is reaching the floor now.
    Everyone is at risk.

  2. The number of robberies is on the increase daily with and it seems as if the security forces are unable to do anything about it. Increased in robberies during the election period is not unheard of in Guyana. Accusations from all quarters especially the political opposition are being made against the government. The sad part is the political opposition is using this to score cheap political points at the expense of the victims and passing the blame on the government but do not support or offer any initiative to address the situation. The Police must be more aggressive in its approach to crime detection using every available means at its disposal. Criminals/bandits would stop at nothing in order to rob and escape with their booty; killing injuring and maiming their victims. Take them out of the society. Fight fire with fire.If the bandits can shoot then the police can do the same.Justice for the victims at all cost.
