It has been confirmed from multiple sources that criminals in the tiny federation of St. Kitts-Nevis are being paid to keep the peace. Following the January/February 2019 rash of violent crimes that left citizens and residents of the twin-island nation on edge and terrified to even set foot outdoors, reports surfaced of a meeting that was held between law enforcement and the least desirable and most socially deviant characters in the nation.
At this meeting which was held in early March, it was reported that local law enforcement entities negotiated and pleaded with gang leaders and members to cease their vengeful rampage throughout the country in exchange for payment and other likely forms of compensation.
This surreptitious arrangement between the modern day forces of good and evil signals to the populace and the Caribbean region on a whole that St. Kitts and Nevis may have reached a whole new low. The decision to assuage the federation’s criminals is a strong indication that the Ministry of National Security and local law enforcement on a whole has reached a level of recklessness and desperation in the fight against crime. It further proves that despite what St. Kitts-Nevis Prime Minister and Minister of National Security Dr Timothy Harris has said, no one in St. Kitts-Nevis has a handle on crime, except the criminals themselves.
The ‘payment for peace’ agreement also gives strong credence to the public’s expressed suspicions around the 2015 general elections when it was said that opposition entities were engaged in the distribution of illegal firearms to known gangs and gang affiliates throughout the country.
Persons are now realising that if criminals can be paid by the powers that be to keep the peace, then it is highly likely that they can be paid to create chaos in the land if such a dark reality ever suited the agendas of those in charge.
