I am calling on the authorities in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to do all it can to STOP the rape and sexual assaults on our women and more, our young girls. I am getting the feeling that this situation is out of control and the authorities have lost control of crimes against females.
The reports out of St. Vincent and the Grenadines via social media must be taken with a pinch of salt, but when it comes to the backbone of our nation there must be action. I am calling on the Honourable Attorney General, the Commissioner of Police, and the Minister of National Security to make a joint statement addressing the crimes issue.
The country has become uneasy with the recent rapes of children and it won’t be long before there is civil disobedience demanding that justice is done.
As the Country develops crimes increase and the Police must be more vigilant and proactive in dealing with the situation. The citizens need to know and be assured that they are safe or they will take matters into their hands. If they do then the forces will be out and the authorities will be making statements to address the situation. It appears that the horses are already out the stable and the gates are closed.
I have a few QUESTIONS for the men in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
- How would you feel if your daughter is raped?
- What would be your reactions if your mother is raped?
- Why pry on the innocent children that cannot defend themselves?
- What are your goals doing such a crime?
- Are you in your right mind or not? Then you need help
Now to the Church and why are you silent? I remember the good old days when the church and the Christian council was very active and they were a voice for those that couldn’t speak. But I have the gut feeling that the church has lost its way in the society and the various communities. When a certain Pastor, wife and daughter scald a man with hot water and were convicted and sentenced to 4 years in jail show that something is wrong in our society. I haven’t read of any condemnation of that sinful act against humanity.
Where is the voice of God in the communities except to speak against homosexuality? There are more pressing matters that the church can add a voice to like rape against our young girls, corruption in high places and in government and opposition. Where is the church when the country is sliding away from good moral practices. You are silent and I believe that the hand of God is writing on the pulpits and the walls of the church. Where is the voice of the people?
I am calling on every good citizen to speak up and let your voice be heard, but in speaking let it be the truth. You will be judged by the words you speak and the actions that followed. Do not follow a lie, but let your conscience dictates your behaviour to influence a good community.
