    Shots fired in spooners, next episode 5 people arrested in spooners. Awesome.

    Next get a infrared camera pointed out to sea that would help cut down on smuggling. As it stands a boat entered west end last night speeding with no lights. obviously smugglers. Been a while. Guessing east end isn’t working for them since that last helicopter chase and arrest.

    Whatever crap they brought in last night you don’t know who in our community will be either killed or lead to addiction. It’s everyone’s business to stop the smuggling!

If you are in the Country doing nothing just causing problems and being a menace you should be shipped out, ANCHOR BABIES INCLUDED. Don’t THINK THAT IF YOU DROP YOUR ANCHOR CHILDREN HERE THAT GIVES YOU A FREE PASS TO STAY IN THE COUNTRY.

      The ones that is employed here in the BVI and contributing to the territory and paying there taxes should be allowed to stay. The ones that is mooching off the territory and not doing anything and causing problems and bringing down the territory deport them out of here. You all need to seriously start vetting these people.
