  1. The government of Guyana needs a functioning police force that will enforce whatever laws that are there if there is any. A person is innocent until proven guilty. Someone commented about Indians leaving Guyana. It’s not about Indians and about blacks. It the moral structure of the country.

  2. GUYANA PLEASE PLEASE bring back the death Penalty.Lets do Lethal injection or the chair , but we need it NOW.

  3. Granger isn’t the president of Guyana, blame the government for not fighting the crime that’s in guyana, I sick of the robberies and killing and domestic violence, i don’t ever want to return to Guyana to live.

  4. This animal must be dealt with like the animal he is. He snuffed out the life of a sweet girl at the prime of her life and left her family in tatters.
    We must bring up our children in the ways of the Lord.

  5. find out where he got the gun…… then go after the findings…granger said too many guns on the streets but what granger wont say is too many illegal guns are in the wrong hands..granger wont say how these guns in the wrong hands helping to drive indians out of guyana because of whose hands these illegal guns are in..then give he a fair trial..then break his god darn neck to send a clear message you cant murder innocent people and get a slap on the wrist.
