    BVI is supposed to be safe with no weapons. It’s time for life imprisonment if you are caught with a weapon and the same goes for the thugs that run with the pos. This is ridiculous. This slap on the wrist because they are related to politicians or ruling families needs to stop. Crime does pay in the BVI.

    The enemy is always in the mix, the enemy most of the time turns out to be the ones that is closest to you. I trust no one, when I roll, I roll solo. There is no such thing as friends or loyalty in these streets. They think they got street swag when they flash all that gold all they doing is setting themselves up to be GOT

    Wait a minute….

    Customs told me personally that there are no firearms in the BVI. Is this article contradicting that statement?
