      As soon as you catch them, put them in cement boots and dump them in ocean. These little homemade hoodlums don’t care about themselves or anyone so why should we give a damn about them. The law don’t punish them harsh enough and set them right back on the street to continue their crime spree. I am waiting for one of these homemade hoodlums to cross me and my DOUBLE BARREL SAWED OF SHOT GUN AND MY BOW AND ARROW. THE CRIMINALS IS ARMED AND I AS A PRIVATE CITIZEN IS STOCK PILING MY ARSENAL OF WEAPONS TO PROTECT MYSELF AND MY FAMILY. THE LAW IS NOT PROTECTING PRIVATE CITIZENS FROM THESE CRIMINALS. YOU PARENTS BETTER TALK TO YOUR SONS THAT IS OUT HERE ROBBING PEOPLE BEFORE THEIR HEADS START TURNING UP ON LIGHT POLES WITH A ARROW BETWEEN THEIR EYES.

        @Yeah. I totally agree with you. One of these days days these PUNKS will buck up on the wrong person and there will be plenty of funerals in the BVI. Parents talk to your sons and daughters....because you will be sorry one of these days...unless you don't care. There are other ways they can earn what they want such as land escaping, farming, create a cleaning company to clean up construction sites, destroyed/ houses ....

      It wasn’t a high speed chase. The police were alerted of their whereabouts after the crime was committed. You think the robbers would go to the basketball court and chill if they were being chased? Lol.

You put your self, your family, your friends and society under pressure. Help your self in a positive way run from crime less you may find your self doing time. So stop a moment and think on the positive side of life. Tell your self the grave yard is not for me until God is ready for me. Tell your self balo is not for me. Tell your self you was born to be a winner in a truthful way. Stop your are a winner put your energy in the right place.

    We should never be quick to rush to judgement and lambaste the young people. As a parent myself I felt the pain of the parents in this difficult time. As a community we should pray that we do not have anymore of these crimes. Today is the day for these parents and who knows what the future holds for others.

    In this COVID-19 pandemic, both adults and children are affected physiologically with no outlet for the young people. It is time for the community leaders to hold a forum and invite ALL the young people and provide some mentorship to these youths. Some parents themselves need training to deal with the youths in the PANDEMIC. May God have mercy on the Virgin Islands.

    This is all very shameful and sad all around the persons are doing this.. yes I can understand that life can be hard and at times person can do the unthinkable to survive but in this situation I feel it’s all about Greed and wickedness and all of them should be beaten and is held accountable for their actions for they all know Right from Wrong. And if they needed help they could ask.. and as for the minor he need an Extra Good whipping..I also do agree that programs need to be put in place where our youths can be mentored in a positive And safe way In this covid time..if the minor was my son, if he beating him till now but I pray they all learn that actions have consequences and they will forever be labeled as No-Good Thieves.. the Bible says that a Good Name is better than Silver or Gold..I pray for the mother of the minor that she’s able to get him back on the right track.. and those of us parents that know our kids are into wrong-doing and is condoning it Shame on us and we will pay the price for that.. we have a mandate by God to bring up our children the Right way and in the Fear and Admonition of God.. (stop sparing the rod and spoiling the child)..we can’t give them a mind but we have to try to shape them the Right way..
