“Glad to know this, buy at official supermarkets,” Sue Ann Thomas commented on Facebook. “To those imps, you deprived other persons of having a Christmas as well. Hope the TTPS apprehend you all and deal with you all brutal because clearly, this will get out of control.”
Tanisha Thompson-Bharat wrote: “Smh, and is ppl from the same community doing this. A lot of ppl from the area employed there, when or if they decide to relocate, that’s it for the community. I am amazed that they survived there for so long.”
“They opening their own store,” Sikhi Mahiti surmised and Marian Debra Thomas added, “They have buyers. God is watching. Karma is real.”
A number of readers lamented the apparent high level of crime throughout the country.
“Every year, every Christmas — and I’m not singing [Luther Vandross] song. Couple years ago, a security guard was also killed around Christmas season, as a result of a similar occurrence,” Nerissa Dqueen wrote.
