    Instead of spending money on a new IPhone/Samsung, spend $150 and invest in the security doorbell cameras for your homes.

    Govt put CCTV in every district. This should be PRIORITY!

      Government should have some sort of initiative for businesses to install security cameras so what they can’t catch on the ones the police have businesses could have some footage. It’s obvious camera surveillance would be key to curbing the amount of unsolved crimes here in the BVI. If the police need funding for it governor get them the funding cause the government not serious.

    I hate seeing this stupid *** comment. Should say it aloud tomorrow in front of real people. Disrespectful sh** piece of *** you. Inconsiderate ***. I wish somebody pisses on your grave when you’re gone. Jack***

  8. Here we go says:

    The comments alone can tell you how lawless society has become. People just wait for a death/murder to start with their hate and ignorance instead of just giving their condolences SMH

        Do NOT disrespect his mother!

        There are mothers who would lie, engage in crime with their children, take orders from the children, never call them out on their bad ways.

        Then there are mothers who do all they can but the child chooses to do whatever they want.

        His mother is a respectable and classy lady. A family is grieving.

        Sin has NO LEVELS. You lie, you have sex and not married, you’re lesbian/gay/bisexual whatever other term they’re adding nowadays, you lust, you hate, you wish bad on others, you steal, etc – SIN IS SIN IS SIN AND WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD.

  11. Help me understand says:

    If I drive into baughers bay. Is it not a one way into that area? Also, on a daily basis is there not a lot of young man sitting not to far from that area where he was gun down?

    So how no one saw what happen!? How the shooter manage to exit that area without being seen.

    Was this done by someone from bbay itself. These are the question one need to ask. And someone had to seen something

    The police force put together a proposal for a public island wide CCTV system some while ago. The cost was $3 million. Not a lot compared to virtual planes and fund the pals walls.

    So far , nothing.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Who the victim be buddy? Is he a local Tolian? Who did the shooting? Someone from down island I bet, why them shot him? Anyone know? I am sure he was a gud boy, a noice man, wouldn’t hurt a fly, always helping his mother and other old lady crossed the road and carry their groceries.
    I’m tired of these people coming here killing our natives.

    I can’t believe this. A person has passed and yet there are people bashing the man. Always talking about unity and yet killing each other with closed eyes and blaming the white man for everything. Wake up! Change starts from you yourself.
