        Easy to throw the blame on a dead ma-he can't defend himself. I find it more plausible that the same person who killed him, killed Trinity...Intentional or not...a real man would give him self up as two innocent persons died. Y'all unconscionable in this place.

        If this is true, it was pure prayers that went up on that child's death. If true, he had it coming and now I understand the brutal death, because when God answers prayers, he uses who he wants in grand style. Mind you, I am not rejoicing over no man's death, but when God repays his wrath, it is worse than obeah.

      Yes, it sure looks like shots were fired from every direction. It is HIGHLY unlikely that the culprits who did that were driving a car. I say culprits because it is obviously not a one man job either which way.

      Authorities have been playing with scooters in this place for far to long. The problem is MORE THAN OUT OF CONTROL. This appears to be the preferred mode of transportation for criminals and many idiotic young men terrorizing and bullying people on our streets.

Children, elderly, the vulnerable, anybody in their way... They just don't care. My goodness!

    What have me puzzle is when my mom told me “he was a cool dude” Why for the last century whenever a person get killed in the BVI “they are a cool person “ My question is - what would be the ultra reasons to keep killing those cool people? All of a sudden? Honestly not because a person have guns, drugs and money and buying rounds of drinks for everyone doesn’t make them cool. A cool person doesn’t involve themselves with drugs and guns.

    I’ve noticed there’s a ghetto trend in the BVI that’s push by a certain types of people. I’m calling and challenging Sista J***E, Boss F*****n , N**R, H******e of Tola Radio, L**** Wh*athe* and her HNF crew, Dj M*C Mi**ie, Ro**ert S**in, C***y J***s to used their platform to condone drugs and illegal guns from in our community. They seemed to have an influence and only 4 of those names actually stand for something positive the rest just just hide behind their post when actually path of organize crime. All those who’s been partying and shelling down using stolen drugs and drug money your time and date already published and what’s crazy the innocent people who’s around you won’t don’t know of the dirty trade will feel the heat as well. The streets are talking and you’ll can no longer hide not even behind you’ll encouraging post.

        NO! You have a personal issue with the owner of the clothing line. You need to check beneath your nose.

        This place is DISGUSTING. The crime is about another individual but yet you all twist it into someone else. In your blog you could have stated that platforms of killing can be created with well-known individuals. NO! You all had to list different people names to try and make a point.

        To the young entrepreneurs "KEEP YOUR HEAD UP" pray to the heavenly father and ask God for guidance and protection over your business because apparently outsiders know more about you than you do. Watch those smiles.

        The people in the Virgin Islands need to mind their own business that pays them. If it doesn't concern you mind yours. Let that person deal with their sin.

        Go clean your fronts that is what you all need to be minding. Walking around the place looking and smelling green.

        Everyone playing acting like they hard work legitimately keeping them up when it’s blood money and drugs. Anything with blood money and drugs don’t last and it comes with a serious Karma. A lot of pop-up vehicles rental owes also need background checks. Big lawyers and other fairly paid citizens can’t afford some of those hand bags but less ah speed boat. All them clothing line need investigating!!!

          I agree. The cops need to investigate persons who steady depositing money with a menial job and no substantial assets nor income stream to prove otherwise. Every week they depositing hard cash in amounts of $1,000 to $2,000. These women are to damn greedy and just a guilty as the hardened criminals they are protecting.

      We are breeding a society of people who fail to work hard and want to get rich overnight. Do an inventory on the source of funds for all those power boats on the waters here and you will see how rampant the drug trade is and how it has infiltrated the society of the BVI. No one wants to be a snitch and either turn a blind eye or enjoy the rewards of these illegal activities. And when these people are gunned down we all claim they were a good boy , man, girl or woman and fail to face the facts that they were involved in illegal activities. The chickens have come home to roost and these restricted borders re drawing spotlight on the ills that fester in the BVI
