  3. I know it is a good feeling when people that do wrong is hit by their own actions,we must remember that with every action there is a reaction,all sin is sin may it be big or small,if you are a thief and not a murderer u still a sinner n u still do wrong,everybody can see a man face but not his heart,how we know that these people is not paying from generational curses?its sad that they have to die like that but we never know. As many of you say he get a dose of his own medicine, but what about if them too get a dose of their own medicine we don’t know them we only hear about them,so r they better we don’t know all we know is the murderer is dead now, who r we to judge.

  4. I can understand that a person can die from a gunshot wound to the leg. However, the police should not be allowed to carry out executions of anyone just because they have the law on their side. I respect the police and the dangerous job they have to carry out. The law of the land is for everyone and should be respected as such. Even for the police.
    Although I cringe at the thought of this guy being back on the street, I can’t say I am glad he was killed. Let’s just see it as karma paying him back for past sins.
    On the other hand, it is time for the Government to turn the Defense Force loose on the criminals and let them work side by side with the police. Antigua is too small a place to have so much crime taking place. You don’t have to kill them, just put them away for a very long time.

  8. Yes it is possible for someone to be shot in the leg and die from the wound. In the leg we have a femoral artery that if it is severed the person can bleed out in 30 minutes. The question we should be asking is what assessment did the EMS carry out when they arrived on the scene. Did they see excessive bleeding and tried to stop it? When he got to the ER did do the required assessment to determine whether the gun shot wound was serious? Many questions to be answered before a determination of what really happened can be made.

  9. One less mouth to feed! He took THREE lives.

    Genesis 9:6
    New King James Version (NKJV)
    6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood,
    By man his blood shall be shed”

    Whoever came up with this foolishness that the death penalty is “cruel and unusual punishment”?

    A murderer committed a “cruel and unusual” act, didn’t he/she? So where’s the equal justice by deciding to feed, clothe and house the murderer for the rest of his/her life?

    If justice was served when and how it ought to have been served Howell wouldn’t have had any chance to escape.

  10. If the bullet severs an artery, you can bleed to death. A bullet fragment can even be carried through your circulatory system to your heart, where it can cause heart attack. The one way to stop violent criminals and those who terrorize is to hunt them and kill them.

  12. Hooray!!! Best news I’ve heard from Antigua in a long, long time. So the ‘demon’ has now been sent to hell. Good riddance. He gave up his humanity when he murdered those poor unfortunate people, it is good to have gotten this garbage off of this mortal coil. For once the police did well. This is probably the best way to start to make some headway against the criminals. Shoot them like the dogs they are, and more importantly, shoot to kill. Let’s see how many of these sorry excuses for human beings will continue their criminal exploits when they are in fear of their own lives.

    Good job to the police force, now they need to find the other one and don’t waste time.
    Another question to be asked is how can a maximum security area housing inmates loose two for a couple of hours and then report it, somebody must be getting paid for this … or has Houdini been reincarnated. Shame the dead cannot talk.

  23. I do not call this success. There is no indication that Mr Howell had a shoot out with the police. He is still human and to gun him down dead is wickedness.

    The police need to be properly trained to incapacitate someone without killing them. Now, the other crimes he is being accused of will pass for nought.

  28. Have just counted over(100) one hundred online and paper-based news portals that are running covering this story right now as we speak regarding the break-out of Avie Howell . 98% of them are based in the United Kingdom and at this moment they have not got the point where they are aware that he has indeed been captured by the police force. Just to show how damaging an incident like this can be to the reputation of the country following on from the original incident which became international news that led to this person being locked up in the first place. Needless to say it is evident that Prison Security personnel Crime fighters public safety officials
    and the general public at large have got a massive responsibility to ourselves and the region and the international community if we really consider ourselves deserving of being taking seriously by the world at large that we are inter-dependent on for our own social economic and political survival as a self-respecting independent sovereign nation state. i certainly hope that this is a new dawn /era as is being touted by all and sundry indeed, if not for anybody elses but our own sake.

    • Good job for what?

      The man should never have been out of prison.

      Killing him is a horrible job. He should have been caught alive! And face the courts for his other crimes.

      He should be able to tell us all how he got to this level of brutality. We needed to learn so we can correct and avoid such acts in the future. BTW he was helped out of prison otherwise the boy is a hero to escape maximum security.

      There is no joy over his death. It is murder again if you ask me.
