    Shooting again. Throw the book at him Danno. Was he an innocent victim or involved in the incident that caused the shooting? Police need to make him talk when he is able. Enough is enough.

        I know the government cannot stop these young gunmen from doing the wrong thing but they can surely put stiff jail time and fine on them. And the courts should deal with everyone in the same manner not some get a slap on the wrist and others get fine and jail the laws is for everyone who commit a crime regardless of who bring you in this world. It is time they put away politics and do the right thing you can help save this place by stiff laws not votes . MR PREMIER we are in a situation trying to rebuild this place do not let the wild west sink us further that who investors remain get fed up and leave wake up you is the leader so lead not follow. We need these gun off the streets not yesterday now.

    Its so disgusting to be hearing these gun crimes almost on monthly basis in this territory. It seems like the UK officers need to be back here for a longer duration of time. This place was lock down when they was here for those months.
