Where are all the persons who are talking on the radio shows? Where are the voices against crime? Where is the press? The churches? Parents?

      @Loud mouth. You ask where are the churches and parents and so forth? When the churches march you laugh and scoff, you mock them. When parents beat their children you send them to the courts. When preachers preach you mock their God. Now because you want to talk you talk. The ship that cannot be governed by the rudder the rocks will pick it up. When r scripture is quoted you hurl insults at the Most High. Well this is the scripture. The very scripture that speaks to those events in the Territory:
      Proverbs 30:17 (KJV) The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
      Proverbs 16:25 (KJV) There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

      I am sorry, my friend but THIS IS THE BVI

      We cannot continue to go around and fool ourselves that we are not who we are, doing what we do, living how we live, and pretend that this is not what it. The BVI we get nostalgic about is a memory of yesterday, and this is the TRUTH of where we are today.

      Drugs
      Corruption
      Gangs
      Social Injustice
      Sexual abuse and taking advantage of the less fortunate for "favors"
      Greed and dishonesty
      The twisting of the Gospel by false teachers for selfish gain and power over minds
      The breakdown of families, and neglect of the youth
      The turning away from God while claiming righteousness
      And on, and on, and on....

      This IS the BVI. My BVI. Your BVI. Our BVI.

      What must we do?
      Confess, Repent, Return to God, and do DO RIGHT according to knowledge.

      Politicians won't save us.
      England or America wont save us.
      Back to Africa wont save us.
      False teachers wont save us.
      Money (hell no) won't save us.

      Only God can save us. Your choice.

      Read this and see whether or not the shoe fits...
      Deuteronomy 30:10 - 20

      10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

      11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

      12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

      13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

      14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

      15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

      16 In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

      17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

      18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

      19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

      20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

    no one is perfect nor do anyone deserve death like this.

    however the good book said you live by the sword you die by tge sword. now im not implying that this was the life of these young men but truly both life cut short.


    i am sure they both left kids behind. i think its time men wake up and open their eyes. this fast life is not worth it. be content with what you make after work and its not enough find a part time job

    if that doesnt work, go up grade your current education status and take it higher to get paid more.

    i assure you i say again tge fast life does not worth it in the end.

    living a life always having to look over your back.

    not having friends because not being to trust anyone.

    most people will bash and talk down. but if anyone of you reading this.

    and these words reach you. make an effort for better you're not to far in. even if you have to relocate for the change do so.

    to the family of these fallen men i ask that you be strong and find a good shoulder to lean on.

    It seems there is no punishment for murder currently.

    I guess it’s a joke to us but this is getting out of control.

    Consider driving in east end and a stray bullet enters your vehicle.

    We need these guns off the streets. We need officers walking the streets. We need legal cannabis that police can turn the place upside down & find those guns without destroying society in the process.
