  1. The man is a fool and is in total denial if you slap him with the truth he still would not believe you .The man is a liar–he never know anything when asked ” the after the fact dictator” crime is down for him because the victims do not look like him bottom line.

  2. Crime is down,Commission Of Inquiry is the money making system for the OLD BOYS.this government is D BEST. Guyanese will continue to suffer because they voted race and until the PNC and PPP are history nothing will change,

  3. Go granger go..come home for Xmas guys.we need $$$ to spirt and drink..and buy clothes for our babies..and baby mothers..

  4. hmm! I believe President Granger says crime in Guyana is not that bad! I know he’s not directly responsible for the actions of these individuals, but in reality Guyana needs to change how they deal with this criminal element. Bring back the cat-o-nine tails and public flogging,
