    It’s not the island it’s the psyche of the people who decimate the stature of the island via the inflated rate of criminalities being perpetrated. both by locals and persons who migrated here to the BVI.

    6:30pm is early. I hope someone saw something and share with the cops. There should be cameras in the area and I hope the cops secure and review them before it’s too late as is the norm.
