Rymer bewails crime after murder in district


In light of the territory’s first murder for 2019 which happened in the Fifth District community of Huntums Ghut a week ago, Virgin Islands Party (VIP) candidate for that constituency Kye Rymer has now made crime reduction and prevention a subject of his campaign.

Speaking at a VIP rally on Friday, Rymer bewailed that violent crime was becoming a norm in the usually-peaceful Virgin Islands.

He then told residents that a VIP government has every intention of offering sufficient support to local police to address the seeming increase in violent crime over the last several months.

“The police would not depend on the governor to instil his constitutional rights to invoke money into the police. This VIP team will ensure that the police have the resources and the funding to carry out their duties,” he said.

Gun crimes are known to be common in the Fifth District.

      As a you comer character matters and what he did just to pull a politcal stunt to take self praise it speak volume.

      If he could deceive us the people of such a small project like this and never to this day apologise for his l—- actions. That he spare head the project and ordedered backboards from the states when in fact the past rep give such contract to a local businessman and another business local man build the backboards.

    Now it is no fault of mr. Rymer for what such countless act that happen.
