Caught on tape! Is physical altercation the new norm in VI?

Over the last week, two videos have been making the rounds on social media such as Facebook and WhatsApp in what seems to be an increasing trend these days for disputes to be resolved in a physical manner and a video of it made on a cell phone and then go viral. Photo: Team of Reporters
The one minute long video depicted the beating taking place in full view of other persons who made no attempt to help the hapless man but one young man grabbed him in a lock from behind, exposing him to yet more blows from the agitated female. Photo: Team of Reporters

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Over the last week, two videos have been making the rounds on social media such as Facebook and WhatsApp in what seems to be an increasing trend these days for disputes to be resolved in a physical manner and a video of it made on a cell phone and then go viral.

The first video to catch the attention of this news site is one that showed a woman beating an elderly man mercilessly with a big piece of wood.

The woman, who has considerably more size than the man, was repeating, “Oh dem gon find me? You gon kill me? You gon kill me? Well I gon kill f**king you! Before you kill me I gon kill f**king you.”

She hit the man repeatedly forcing him to use his hands as a shield which protected his head and face from being struck by the wood the woman weaponised.

The one-minute long video depicted the beating taking place in full view of other persons who made no attempt to help the hapless man but one young man grabbed him in a lock from behind, exposing him to yet more blows from the agitated female.

Persons nearby were heard saying, “Trigger, don’t get involved Trigger,” referring to the young man who grabbed the elderly man, leaving him unable to protect himself from the blows.

At this point the video ended and it was unclear what was the fate of the man who collected the blows.

We asked Public Relations Officer of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) Diane Drayton whether the Police knew about the incident in the video. However, she said there was no report made about the incident.

Ladies brawl in Up's parking lot

In the other video, Police ranks were seen intervening after two young women were fighting in the parking lot of UPs Cineplex in Road Town, on the main island of Tortola.

While it is not clear from the video who started the fight, persons who made the video recording from their cell phone were heard speculating about one of the young ladies starting the altercation.

The video depicted the two women fighting near a vehicle in which one of them was the driver. There was a male there trying to keep the two women apart from each other and at one stage he lifted one of the females and walked away with her in his hands in an attempt to break up the altercation.

The video which was about one minute and 20 seconds long ended with Police arriving on the scene and trying to break up the altercation. It is unclear whether there were any arrests in this incident.

    I saw the first video and I must admit, it was very sad to watch. I think that video was done in St. Thomas. And the sad things is, people tend to find these videos funny and they share them on social media for attention.

      She needs to be locked up because if it was the reverse he would have been in jail. That man did not even defend himself and somebody had the nerve to hold him and not her.

    That woman or beast whatever she is, needs to be charged with assault or even attempted murder. Steve, press charges against her. If it was a woman getting those blows the man would have been arrested along time.

      @Guest...stop talking your foolishness here!!! violence against any individual is wrong and now that is said, everyone is entitled to defend themselves..so if a woman feel she strong enough to give a man licks ..then she is strong enough get licks too!!!
      Women today are fighting for equal rights as men ...so it should be equal in every sense of the word!!!

      @Just saying...., you are simply crazy. Steve is a human being, hope you know that. She could have reported the threat to the police, instead she took matters in her own hands and she should pay for it.

    She belongs in a zoo, jail is for human beings. The thing I saw in that video hitting the man who never did once strike her back is not a human being. Even when put in a choke hold by the other person the animal instead of backing off continued to assault the man.

    We don't teach conflict resolution in school or at home. Instead, we'd rather use caveman tactics and engage in violence. Too much free floating anger and frustration, not enough opportunity created in the BVIs thanks to cronyism and corruption.
