    I was never a fan of lifting the curfew, but honestly, if these things are happening when curfew isn't on, I think it's time to lift it and increase police presence. In my opinion, the curfew seems to be pointless now and is just hurting the night life in the BVI.

    law enforcement need to stem the flow of guns into this place: what or is there any stragic plans for additional border patrol: to the best of my knowledge the BVI do not manufacture firearms therefore the importation of weapons need urgent care!!!!!

      Same thing with the West End shooting. The focus was on the curfew more than the fact that two lives were lost.

      @ Margret thatcher...why should we wish him a speedy recovery when he will not cooperate with the police. Obviously he has something to hide or else he would be singing like a canary. True, I do hope he recovers but what information is he hiding?

        Either he has something to hide or he plans on taking matters into his own hands.

    Stronger police presents maybe some covert work... bring in some cops who can mix with the criminal elements...we need to become more heavy handed when it comes to crime and quickly.

      Bring back dem Uk goons, this stupidest wasn't so prevalent as they patrolled 24/7, they commanded RESPECT! No body fraid Tola police or respect them, that's a crying shame! Unfortunately, it will get worst when January hit and banks start back with loan payments and half of Tola get laid off or fired, so lots of crimes will be committed and many robberies will be more. Lots of foreclosures, etc cause dem banks naw play.

        @UK the thing is not about respect or being afraid of TOLA Police it is about respecting yourself and this country. Have u ever shed an ounce of blood for this country? Have u ever been cursed at. spat on, call all kinds of name. Have ever felt hated all because you doing the right thing? Have ever felt forsaken by those who made the laws u try to enforce ? WHAT have u ever done to promote this country? Ok lets bring back the big guns and the whip. It would appear that as black people it is the only way we could be producted

        It is definitely hard to respect Tola police. You call them to your property because somebody trespassing and they will let the trespasser go and issue you a warning on your own property. Most of the male officers flirt with everything that have a hole and I am sure they already have wife at home and mistress on the side. They need to stop. You know how the UK officers commanded respect? Whilst it was obvious that they had to take a back seat and watch the BVI clowns at work without intervening, they actually tried to have a relationship with members of the community. They were respectful, conversational and clearly knew their stuff if you asked them a question. The BVI clowns have a lot to live up to.

    Some say law enfoncement need to stop the flow of guns in the BVI. Before they are able to do that, the big fish has to be revieled.

    We dont have gun factories in the VI,so the question is how are the guns getting into the territory.
  • wize up (11/12/2017, 23:04) Like (4) Dislike (0) Reply
    this gun thing out of control and the persons directly responsible for the security of this territory is the Governor and nothing from his desk about his plans
    to correct this sickness: with in our elected officials we have no justice ministry and none of them(13 clowns) we have voted for has enough balls to demand some plans about this out of control criminal behavior in this territory from the U.K. Representatives; you see the governor likewise the commissioner of police are on some form on contractual agreement and have the privilege to leave the BVI; however some of we must remain here so we should not let crime continue growing and demand answers from Government House just a we point finger at Orlando Smith: the day white Folks become victims of gun crime you will see how different things will be right here in that

    In building the BVI, it is evident that the human material was a mistake, Now given a chance to rebuild, the BVI has been given a new opportunity. A second chance to be used wisely,
    Seize the opportunity and take steps to change the demographics that is the source of destruction.
    BVI is a blessed place. Do the right thing for its preservation.
