    Events like that will be the reason to take off 3 hours from the curfew. It's sad. Very sad. Yet could have been worse

    I think they need to revisit the curfew extension, because all it is going to do is cause people to get into a lot of problem. Every time the curfew is extended it give persons longer hours to get involved in senseless acts. Why do you want to keep extending the curfew and they still have lots of places where they are no lightning and houses that are not secured.

    Apparently the curfew never applied to those punks that sit there all day and night in Baughers Bay, every hour of the night they are up and down with no regard for the law. Bunch of low lifes.

      I understand that you are frustrated but many of their homes were lost. You can't say that. Look and know the situation first. Do you know if they are staying there.

    VI you need to be ashame. It's person like you that causes senseless person like you to do nonsense. And so what if there were grammatical errors. I bet you anything that you senseless behind know what I meant caused you the one who replied to it, and you had to be one of the fools who block the road in Belle Vue. Well I live in Belle Vue and born here just like you all, just a bunch of idiots who does stupidness, with nothing to do but makes trouble rob persons and smoke before you all go look work and clean up the Belle Vue.

    As kids I know our parents taught us that if you don't have nothing nice to say don't say it at all. Moreover, if you don't know don't speak! Instead of coming on here to insult and degrade your fellow neighbors how about helping them. That's the only way the BVI/VI IS GOING TO PROSPER! P.S I know doctors and very successful entrepreneurs that smoke marijuana on there leisure time. To each its own.
