We're still congratulating ourselves for not shooting anyone during our NYE ... uh ... "tradition".

Didn't mean to offend was just asking. Is it really a sick question with the amount of murders there a year? I was just curious.

Okay. Around here we call it 'goat mout'. You may call it: Be careful of what you may wish for. Guess it is something you think to yourself and not out loud.
Imagine, they arrested one in St Thomas for shooting off his gun on at midnight on New Year's! Guess he will be a martyr. Or should I say hope!

Nope... took 6 days, not 3.
