        Let me ask u a question @peace. So only uneducated people does kill people? You statement is a stupid one to make. Because as far as I can see right now our government has a set of so called educated people in it and they are killing us daily but they ain't locked up. Everyday they let you know that they then selves are breaking the law but what happens? NOTHING!!!

      @Well Sah, another young black ignorant fool sounds more like it. There are a lot of young black men in the BVI who chose the positive path. He choose the drug slanging path.

    He made the choice to act out his ignorance that day. He had a chance to think about what he was about to do but he decide to take street justice. See where street justice led him? And to Mr. fast hands who cause this, KARMA DON'T NEED A POSTAGE STAMP or ADDRESS to find you.
