  1. Ernie – SO what you gonna say now? 6 Days, several murders, kidnapping, road accidents…. Ramjattan and the PNC regime has plans to reduce the crimes? The are fully responsible for majority because 1) the need to implement better systems to reduce the crime, educate the un-educated and before pardon prisoners -send them to rehab help! Legalizing Gajna is better than having club run until 3am? What foolishness is the security minister expressing? Can someone explain with facts? The crime under this regime will never end because the promise the rice farmers $9000 when PPP used to pay them $6000 per bag…instead this regime give them $900 forcing them to go bankrupt….you need more facts? Tourism will soon be dead because no one in their righted mind would want to return to guyana where crime is like a disease spreading all over….

  2. I will ignore the racist undertones of your post and ask two questions : How do you expect government, or the police for that matter, to stop people from getting drunk and stabbing each other?
    Do you have a problem with the fact that people are being murdered or that the party you support is no longer in power?
    I think your slip is showing.

  3. Look at who killing who before making silly comments these were not random killings .
    These were altercations that GOT VIOLENT .
    Guess the DK IS AN ACRONYM FOR DUMB Kxxnt

    This is exactly the good life PNC talking about echoed by cack eye security minister Rumjhaat echoed by Nagajhaat and Roopjhaat . From day one all the Jhaata that joined de cparbhundhars got sidelined. These Jhaats them think they have tremendous powers when in fact these Jhaats are so dumb they are toothless Jhaats.
