          The victim’s father was from Saint Kitts and the perpetrators father is from Dominica. Their mothers are BVIslanders.

            @VG why does it matter where their parents are from? They're still BVIslanders.

          Listen I'm born and raised here, no everyone shares the sentiments of the few, we are all Caribbean people and we need to embrace each other. Don't pay attention to the noise, there will come a day when we BVI landers will need help even if it involves moving for better life, not praying for it but don't forget we used to back in the 1920's. My grandfather worked in Curaçao.

    The young man who did the chopping is a known mental health patient. The question we should be asking is whether any provisions were made by the Mental Health Department to ensure he was taking his medicationS before, during and after the Government imposed lockdown. Far too often those in need are neglected or placed on the back burner including the mentally ill. Whilst I agree that the full extent of blame cannot be placed on government, truth be, it has a positive obligation to protect the live including the lives of vulnerable people. Whilst the full facts of the incident are still unknown, the victim may have a good case against the government if he chooses to explore his legal options. Just stating the obvious from a legal point of view. Lastly, as the perpetrator is mentally ill, prison is out of the question so the final question is what will they do with him. Will they send him off island to an institution for the mentally ill or admit him to the mental health ward at the hospital? Is the latter the right place for this young man now that this incident proves that he has violent tendencies?
