      Innocent or guilty does not and should not matter because when it comes to fighting for your life in this court system it’s ALWAYS better to be prepared. It’s better to be over prepared than under prepared then regret it in the long run….

    All this is part of the UK plot. It is not if they can win or not but it is about the UK making us lose confidence in our own. Wake up BVI.

    Even if wrong is done or not in the BVI are you telling me that the only wrong the Governor and his alleged prearranged COI and his UK police force sees, investigates and arrest are blacks and no Caucasians. People see this for what it is, a modern day lynching.

    By the time the Governor & his UK bosses finish with these kinds of abuse of power then not a public servant will do anything in those government offices and the people will suffer. But that is their intent any how.

      Enough of your political lies. Jaspert hated them and would have done anything to get them and get them out because they stood up to Jaspert racist dictatorship style to take over for the status quo. The only rat out that went on was those status quo who wanted back power and they are the ones who lived by Jaspert carrying lies and called for the overall COI from Jaspert hoping to get back power.

    They UK is chipping away one by one. There aim, is to intimidate all the smart people who will use the law to legally push back so they will have second thoughts about running.
    All this is, is another witch hunt. The sad part is the closer we get to elections, there will be more arrest to come. Divide and conquer, muddy the water is the mission.
    If they feel you are a threat, they will do all they can to create doubt in the minds of the people.
    As much as the people do not trust our leaders, we have seen what the UK can do if people do not stand up for their rights.

    This damn UK is trying to take over the British Virgin Islands in a sly and tricky way. So they are arresting our officials and public Officers.

    How come they are not arresting all them damn murderers, killers, those shooting and gunning
    down people along with child molesters and robbers.

    This whole thing is a damn setup by the UK to take down the BVI.
