      Ask his family, friends, and especially his girlfriend what he was involved in. I bet they will keep their mouths shut! This is why nothing will be solved, unless someone comes forward.

    It's time for a total purge of all drug dealers, drug couriers, money-launderers and corrupt officials. Try them and let them rot for the bad they have done this country. We all need to turn in our wrong-doing relatives and friends. Only when we live and act right will the BVI be saved.

      To achieve, why.... Drugs are like roaches when you think you get rid if one another 3-5 pops up.

      As you can see people in the world keep getting lock up for such.

      People love that fast money

      And this young generation with all that now music n video games only help to enforce that way of thinking

      Im going to leave with this majority of the crimes and murders committed recently are done by individuals younger than 30 I will go a step further and say than 25

      Why would anyone dislike this - we need to clean up the crime situation because innocent persons could easily be struck with stray bullets in these shootings in high traffic areas. People pass back and forth in that area all day every day.

        He learned from the moral training instilled by his parents and was gifted the curse of his parents genes.Research the current crime statistics of St Vincent.
        Research the crime statistis of Vincentians here and wherever they relocate.
        The immigrant Caribbbean population flee the terrors of their countries while carrying the and carry the mindset of killing and stealing.
        Their home lands ,all with unending natural resources are not conducive to foreign investment and living ,all because of the natural murderous instinct of the natives.

    You only have to read these comments to understand the absolute problems facing the BVI. Gangster culture and dialogue celebrated and coupled with large numbers of uneducated people looking to get rich quick.

    This is nothing to do with culture or local dialect/patois. All to do with worshipping the wrong role models.

Society and the Community making it hard for PPL, everybody have there own opinions of u , what u did or didnt do thats ur buzinezz not them. Everybody gt to eat and provide however they can whether good r bad ,whether easy r fast . The world did nt come with its own manual on how to live we just learning how to adapt n survive in a world or society , community that judge us by the life we live strupz we aint perfect , u and ur whole generation n myself ain perfect . Its a learning process but we all have a mission n goals to survive n provide the best we can not everything in life comes for FREE . We just got 2do what we got to do, here 2day gone 2morrw whether it was natural or by force . I might not have the same MENTALITY OR MINDSET as u , how you see thing, why ,when ,how things should happen to ppl r why u friends with them etc or becuz u feel they deserve it or becuz they choose the life, it ain that they chose to go there yall and society made it hard and difficult 4 ppl to have a voice becuz yall want to be on top where u pick n choose who get this n that , yall look at who got the most qualification, experiences , last name,degrees, knowledge etc not everybody had the chance 2finish school r was smart or bright like u or anybody to help them or look out for them like u had help but yall quick to point and judge ppl but yall self than asking urself did i give this person a chance to show themself etc no you did not , yall quick to bring down parents as well like yall helped the parents with the child or children them hmm yall dont say it take a village to raise a child or yall 4get eh. But anyhow i guess yall to good for ppl that didnot had / have the education or life u had/have etc, yall out here making it hard for ppl 2breathe and want to jack up price on every damn thing becuz u feel only u got 2 break bread strupz, but i dont watch no face or judge a book by its cover PERIOD It going be what it is regardless of what u or society thinks whether we like it or not so dont try sitting high in your castle looking down on ppl becuz one day it will fall and them same ppl society and hypocrites speak so highly of going be the ones u going turn 2 for help one day not everybody got it good like u , so dont act like u aint done some bad shit in your life , just REMEMBER when u bitching, downgrading, bashing ppl you got FAMILY, SIBLING, CHILDRENS ETC that in your circle that aint perfect 2 so be4 pointing fingers at ppl and talking shit about this and that clean the SHIT between your eyes FIRST THEN U COULD TALK
