One killing is too much - Sharie B. Y. de Castro
"One Is Too Much is not a onetime initiative. One Is Too Much will become our way of life. One Is Too Much should become the stance of every Virgin Islander and resident. My overall message therefore is that we should all adopt a zero tolerance approach to crime and violence of any nature because One Is Too Much," said de Castro on her Facebook page on January 9, 2017.
Fahie was shot at his business place by a bandit and died at Peebles Hospital on January 6, 2017, a story first and accurately reported by this news site. The bandit robbed one of two customers who were at the Long Look ‘Fahie Boy Bar’ at the time.
Police have since arrested and released one person pending further investigations.
Ignoring a disease never results in a cure
Meantime ,de Castro said crime has the ability to cloak persons in fear, which can cause persons to remain silent. "Remember, ignoring a disease never results in a cure. In fact, it exacerbates the problem. Therefore, speak out. Special shout out to everyone who has joined the movement! #OneIsTooMuch #TakeBackBVI #IsThereNotACause #PrayersForBVI," as she appealed to persons to help the RVIPF to fight crime in the territory.
Ms de Castro’s comments come at a time when there is a deafening silence from the territory’s elected representatives in the wake of frequent gun crimes.
Even the two Opposition Members have not responded to requests for comments on the subject.
