    it was reported to the people of the BVI that crime has fallen: it is also amazing how the crime in our territory is hardly ever spoken about by the politicians(all they harp about is the money and BVI Airways)...The ease at which unlawful substances can move via the public roads from point A to point B is unbelievable: get vex(but you mostly see law enforcement in large numbers following an incident) those with all manner of guns, those in plainclothes and those in uniforms: BVI gone wlld; I recall having murder in our country once every 10 years: progress comes with a very high price......this thing is dam serious, one will think every one will lay low knowing the police out and about but NO; within 48 hours another killing and I submit this is not the first time: the politicians have the territory upside down; now the some young folks right alongside them.

      So now because we have 2 shootings one right behind the other means that crime hadn’t fallen? That report was at that particular time, from whatever it had been. And u need to stop acting brand new, as though u don’t know by now that these current politicians don’t care about this country or what happens to it unless it’s fattening their belly n their pockets. U really expect them to talk about it or do anything about anything? It’s like you expecting a dead horse to suddenly start running. You better wise up and realize that they won’t be helping us. Won’t be representing us. Won’t be speaking on our behalf. Not this government., not today, not any day, especially that they know that they’re on their way out. Wize up.
      You better wize up and realize that we’re living amongst criminals. That same ones you smiling with, hailing up and dapsing are the same ones who talking innocently like it’s such a tragedy and offering their kind wordsto the family and acting so sorry. You better wake up.
      As for the police? Their presence is a joke. Free entertainment. Means absolutely nothing when they’re around . Even if we had a 6 p.m. curfew (just an example) crime will still happen. Both before and after the curfew . Right in front of their faces as we have seen before. Right in the dam station to boot. Then it’s another lifetime to solve that one crime, if we live that long. This isn’t about sounding negative in any way, this is our truth. Our reality. We are in a lot of trouble here in this place. Everybody talking hush hush in their house or their little group and that the end of that. We afraid to do anything else. Fraid to march. Fraid to cuss. Fraid for the boss to hear how u feel for more fear of losing your job. Fraid to speak to your children. Fraid to say anything to your man about his illegal activities. Fraid to report what’s going on even if it’s to mail 10 different letters about what you know, (if you trying to stay anonymous.) We all just talk talk talk whisper and talk some more. No one person or institution is to blame. For the team to win, everybody has to play. Wizely...

    It's rather clear that this bad omen the BVI has over it, is due to not enough obeah and spells of good being casted out. Stop conjuring wickedness and seek the light.

    Nothing Police can do to stop these murders. They can do a lot to solve them one of the things they need to work on is good relationship with the public.. police have no descretiin in giving ticket. Saw 3 people park by the appeal Court in Town go across to customs to collect their friends / family coming from St Thomas by the time they return to their vehicles they all get a ticket . I was saying since the court wasn't in session they should have given them a break.. These are the little things that mess up the police public relationship. Police need the public.. The public need the police also.. Hope they get these crime solve quickly. Get the killer / s off the streets..

      Stop blaming the Politicians. The ones to be blamed is the public that is covering for the bad seeds. Every police officer should be armed. The criminals is having a field day because they know the police is unarmed.

        The criminals are having a field day NOT because they know the police is unarmed but because they KNOW no one will give them up.

    Word from the streets is who ever went up in that man's crib and violate need to start putting steel doors on there relatives homes. If you got beef with a man, you handle it with that man on the streets you don't step in his crib with innocent people inside and start popping off. The killer of the dude has now put his relatives in danger. Just hope the killer relatives don't live in my neighborhood.

      You would hope the killer families would turn him in after putting them in danger. You know what it means when it is being said the killer should start putting steel doors on his people homes. You can't just walk up in a person home and did what was done and expect to not get hit back. Who go get hit back? Your innocent family members. Just saying, when things pop off and children is around, don't harm the children.

    Every time a murder takes place in this territory, almost every one wants to jump at the police throat blaming them for not catching the murderers, accusing them of only good for giving out tickets and locking up people for drugs. In my opinion this is very shallow and ignorant thinking. Traffic offences occurs in plain sight, drugs pushers and users do their stuff in plain sight but murders often commit their act in ambush style making it much more difficult for police to catch them. So why blame the police for murders and some folks often commented on the amount of unsolved murders. Am sure that for every murder someone knows something so why not hold them accountable for not coming forward. We have seen numerous murder review teams come here over the years trying to bring closure to those unsolved murders but as usual no one here ever sees or knows anything. So what’s the best thing, blame the police for not doing there job. Well guess what, see how far this mentality will get us. Those who have information continue to withhold it then come up with your lame ass excuse that you don’t trust police. In years to come we will see what territory we have. Continue with you all hatred for police while continue to shield and protect the cold blooded murderers among up.

      @superman and Hmmm. Do you all see the need for the police to be there directing the traffic? If none were there then there will be a serious traffic jam and then everyone will be asking where is the police. But for you guys information, they are there in their off time and were given permission by the COP to be their
