    Is this the new norm? Drive by shootings? Mr. Commissioner of Police there needs to be more stop and searches in a society over run by drugs and guns. The BVI is falling apart.

      Like really, is the BVI landers that are helping the country go down the drain, so your comment isnt positive at all. I am certain there are more non BVI Landers who are upholding the law than BVI landers. so we need to stop with these nonsense post.

    Hello all

    Every time there is a murder we all pretend we are shocked. We all pretend the victim was such a good person and a great member of our community.

    Pretty much all the time they were [alleged] CRIMINALS. Can we please stop pretending these were honorable people. If you want to be a criminal this is the risk of the lifestyle.

    If you see someone without a highly paid job and still he or she lives a lavish lifestyle it is pretty obvious. If you wish to stay involved with these people, that’s on you but stop pretending these people were such amazing characters. They were criminals.

      The new rich are the politicians. They’re milking the people while [allegedly] smuggling in the drugs and guns.

      The only business is drug business. Screw the pillars. They’ve fallen

    Why you all blame things on the people who are slaving away to build this island. If it was dung island people doing the killings here they would have gotten caught, because they have no one in authority to cover up for them. But because the killers are from here everything you all do cover up that’s why crimes can’t solve.

    Do you think this increase in crime in the latest months is due to Covid and criminals needing to take more risks? I mean, I’ve lived here for more than 10 years and it has always been quite safe, also compared to west Europe l where I am from, but now every month there are a couple of murders which is actually insane. Surely all these closures don’t help but do you think this is the only reason?

  19. Captain Flint says:

    Don’t blame Covid. If the shooter can afford to buy a machine gun he can afford to buy food. This shooting was not a robbery but a targeted hit. Someone is cleaning house. The Government need to stop the drug trade and the illegal import of guns. How are the guns getting here to Tortola? Recently in the airport I had a bag with just a coat in and was subjected to a detailed search. Perhaps Customs officers should inspect all cargo or the gun runners somehow evading the customs.
