The rape of two teenagers at their Rodney Bay Home on Monday night continues to anger the female population in St Lucia, and has prompted one prominent woman to stop talking and start acting.
Mrs Sarah Flood Beaubrun says she has found it hard to contain herself since news of the alleged gang rape of the girls.
She stressed that the situation has reached unacceptable levels and should not be allowed to continue.
Mrs Beaubrun has called for a more clinical approach to dealing with such crimes and finding preventative solutions.
Meanwhile Mrs Beaubrun states that it is obvious that the government is not able to deal with the crime situation including violence against women and provide protection for children.
She notes that it is time to go back to the drawing board and vote in a government that is serious about people.
She has prescribed a revision of all the recommendations made following studied which have been conducted, as a first step to tackling the problem.
Mrs Beaubrun stressed that in addition to efforts made to strengthening the Vulnerable Persons unit in the Royal St Lucia Police Force, crime prevention should be a priority
