So, I did read up on this "DMX" guy, because I don't know him, as I'm not on the island just yet. I came across a secondary article that is the subject of this thread.

Facebook secondary article

Is cock fighting legal in USVI? Not that I care, but it's mentioned so nonchalantly, like it's a common occurrence.

Sjointer, I would venture to say that DMX represents a very typical type of gang criminal here on STX. There also was an organized crime gang on STX called The Commission, a few years back. Some believe the cops were involved in that organization. It is also well known that many cops are Masons. Although the Masons, per se, are not bad, I am told that here in the VI they put on a good front but are actually involved in nefarious activities. King Mapp himself is a Mason, as evidenced by the full page ad the Masons ran in the Avis, congratulating Brother Mapp on his win.

And so begins the conspiracy theories...

Your biggest concern about chicken here should be whether to go with "grilled" or "fried".

But more importantly:
Why is our choice of chicken options at all the grocery stores here seem so limited? Beef, pork, fish inventory always seems much larger than chicken.

If I remember correctly, The Commission dispatched a lot of criminals in record time--at no cost to the tax payers

(tu) however, sadly, there was a cost to taxpayers if any of those criminals required emergency medical care before they expired, which was most likely the case.

I do not think medical care was necessary.

Whether it be Hospital, doctors nurses, underlies, security, Police, EMTS, First Responders, Ambulance, Coroner, AG personnel, etc., all come at a cost to respond to random acts of violence.
