There has been, it seems , a lot more crime these past couple of months.

What leads you to that conclusion?

Perhaps, she's referring to the number of incidences that have been reported in the various newspapers that have happened recently in STX?

According to today's paper, it was the 27th homicide this year. Here are stats from last year.

The only thing the article added that I didn't see mentioned in the Source, is that police followed a white SUV believing suspect was in that vehicle. No other info on suspect.

I hear you. My perception is also that it is sad on STX from what I see my friends posting on Facebook and those discussions. First time I've ever heard several friends who are native multi-generational Crucians discussing giving up and leaving for Florida.

There is nothing new happening on STX. The level of violent crime among the majority is about what it always been. Just my observation.

Talk about sending an invitation for criminals to commit even more acts:

The homicide rate appears to be steady. 640 people have been killed in USVI since 1999, which comes to about 40 per year. This year, it's right on that target.

We need stats on other types of crime to see if there has really been an increase overall. I couldn't find anything in a quick google search, but the info should be somewhere.

I looked for USVI crime stats once, but the only reliable stats were for murder, and that seems to be because it's the most obvious, hard-to-hide crime, and because the newspapers are doing the counting. VIPD doesn't keep good stats.
