      what can the government do if they dont have info? our sons and daughters are involve and is withholding all the infoormation fron the local authorites, so tell me, id that happen, what can they do? parents know that their children are in gangs, bringing home plenty cash and drugs, and yet dont report them to the police….those same kids get themselves into trouble and get kill. if something was done before, maybe they would have been save from that evil force that is leading them into the part of destruction.

    • Martha says:

      I feel it’s very ignorant to say “ya’ll sound retarded”. I don’t use that word in such an uneducated derogatory way as it is so disrespectful to mentally challenged people and their families. I also feel your spelling and grammar should be improved before making a statement like that.
      However, with that said you’re correct these young black men killing my each other needs to stop and it should start at home.

    Parents abuse is a serious thing in the Virgin Islands now. Parents over the years somehow got a bit soft and the now new culture of the youths today mindset make them feel like their the ones in charge. I know it have parents trying but again now scared of their daughter/s or son/s. I’ve seen some reactions of big man and their parent.

    It’s a point where the parents have no say. Parents abuse is not new. We all talk about children abuse etc but in this century parents are being abused by their children more. It would be if those parents who scared of their children get help ASAP. It will be good if they also report gut feelings of their daughter or son being involved with something bad. Nevertheless the issue are in the circle of who’s been getting shot. Once you’re a brother, friend, clique members etc ) most likely you are involved or in danger or will do damage to someone.

    Police needs to let parents know – if you report their daughter or son and the police come to the home and find any drugs, large amount of cash or guns then (daughter or the son) will be charge Ect.

    If parents don’t report their daughter or son and with the police work ended up at someone house where they find (guns, heavy amount of money and drugs) every single person in the house should feel the pain and charged. Most enjoy the opportunity of living off of illegal activities and find it difficult to report after. However by now the parents in the circle of last month activities should be somehow reaching home by now.

    • Uncle Buck says:

      I dont understand, parents are abused by undisciplined children?

      It is the parents job to ensure their children grow into reasonable, respectful adults. If a child turns into a monster, the parent obviously missed quite a few warning signs. Or wasn’t paying attention.

  9. Light up the night sky says:

    For the next few weeks to months I would like to see the night filled with the lights of the Police vehicles.

    Please protect yourselves and stay safe right now more than ever you need to be out front.

    Good Luck and God Bless.
