  1. Guyana cannot afford these criminals. They should be hunted down and made to pay by sending a very loud message to those like them whose only goal is to prey on hardworking honest citizens. These thugs seem to carry out their predatory activities with impunity when and where ever they please. The response must be equal, sustained and resolute.
