    Rolling up on scooters heavily armed is not the 1st and it wouldn't be the last. Its about time the community come together as one and lookout for each other and stop the foolishness about no snitching.

    We need to shut the door on all these drugs and choke off the criminals and their guns. We should be asking the UK to bring back the military boats and block these drug runners. We can not continue to be complacent. This is not going to go away!
    5 years ago you never had people getting machine gunned to death in Tortola.
    All these knuckleheads should be locked up for a long time. They are killing this community.

    Every time the UK military boat comes they tell us not ask us. It comes and it goes. We have no say.

    I believe this issue of military assistance or not is false pretenses meant to shape our opinions.

    If they want to bring the military boat plane and helicopters they will bring them no questions asked.

    But question why is there no police presence in that area until the bars close?

    Restaurants hotels surfing spot bars all in that location and no real safety.

    it’s the flipping pier park situation all over again.... wake up police wake up
