      You don’t have to call his name comments or not. The whole Island know who he is. No matter how much juice or power you got it runs out His is going to run out soon. You dig and digging a hole for someone, someone is in the shadows silently digging one for you.

      No lie, for real, if your name is on the green light list go ghost or get out of dodge right quick. Once the shot caller put a check next to your name it’s a wrap. Sad but a lot more is going to get hit.

    Those are the type of people who’s “HNF” an illegal operations hiding behind a brand and known models that’s been published in the police department records for illegal stuff. The BVI needs a clean up with quick and swift punishment. Let’s rid drugs out of our community including marijuana.

      You lost me on the last note. We need legalization because prohibition is driving our community apart for years as people are forced to hide in the shadows for a plant & causing otherwise law abiding people to view police in a negative light.

    It amazes me how many persons claim to have information about who the killers are in the comments, who the big boss is etc. yet no one has the balls to step up and provide information/proof to the police for their arrest. Why keep talking if you’re not willing to get them off the street!!!
