Unless it's like the father on St Thomas who was released by the judge because he had 26 children to support. He must be a very responsible father.

Just to clarify. He has 21 children and his bail was reduced. He was not released. 

Sorry. He's a great father.

Probably the same amount as kids he has. The court should order a vasectomy as part of his sentence.

And you won't. It is a violation of V.I. statute to reveal the outcome in a criminal matter involving juveniles.

How come Querrard never orders "more officers to patrol the streets" or has "lifted overtime restrictions currently in place and ordered "results and productivity" for the time worked" when an ordinary citizen gets car jacked?

Just wondering if I can expect this type of response when I get car jacked. Notice I said "when" not "if".

Boohoo Capehart...welcome to our world.

"results and productivity" for the time worked" Shouldn't this be the norm?

Too funny. A senator gets jacked and suddenly it's all hands to the pump.

And what is truly hilarious is noted in today's article in the daily snooze where the changes in training/overtime will "only last a week or so until they can get a grasp on the crime situation".

Crikey if it only takes a week why the firetruck haven't they done it already! What a joke.

I know the islands aren't small but they aren't extremely larger either. What do criminals do with these vehicles that are stolen? Are there chop shops on the island? I am amazed more can not be done to prevent crime and apprehend those who engage in it. I realize and am aware of the on going debate of how serious the crime problem really is but obviously there is a fair amount. I think the new show on ABC this Fall called "How to Get Away With Murder" should do a special show in the USVI.

We used to usually steal cars for specific parts and would dump what was left in multiple spots. One favorite spot was the dump on STT - we were never questioned as to why we were going in and out, and I used to even fire my guns off in there.

OK, you asked:

I want to put this in the public domain where everyone can make money off of it but no one can own it:

“The new version of the Church-Turing thesis (now called the ‘Church-Turing Principle’) does not refer to Turing machines. This is important because there are fundamental differences between the very nature of the Turing machine and the principles of quantum mechanics. One is described in terms of operations on classical bits, the other in terms of evolution of quantum states. Hence there is the possibility that the universal Turing machine, and hence all classical computers, might not be able to simulate some of the behavior to be found in Nature. Conversely, it may be physically possible (i.e. not ruled out by the laws of Nature) to realize a new type of computation essentially different from that of classical computer science. This is the central aim of quantum computing.”

How To Compute Without Numeric Variables In A Non-Von Neumann Architecture

I've published this on multiple forums on the Internet. I've received responses like:

"...If I'm correct OP may be a genius and is maybe knocking on the door to something much larger than mere programming."

Yeah, getting car jacked really sucked. Stupid kids.

I've had a gun in my face or ribs 4 or 5 times here, but I'm a bartender an usually keep late hours, in not the best of spots at time, so it's not shocking when it happens.

No sh!t. I'm all about rehabilitation and forgiveness for youthful mistakes, but jebuscripes the PRIDE that you display when describing what only can be described as abhorrent behavior without a shred of regret or remorse is really stomach turning.

Getting car jacked is no joke. Losing your car and the possessions in it is no joke. I have friends who have been traumatized for life because of crap like this. Please. Stop.

I was taught that abhorrent behavior by the society of the USVI.

You've seriously sunk to the depths of spouting utter rubbish offering up that little bon mot.

i dont think because someone talks about crimes, makes it boastful. we do not know the tone or inflection he is using when talking about these.

people can be rehabilitated.

i have, in the past, worked with convicted felons including someone who was convicted of manslaughter. both were extremely respectful and nice.

It was asked what was done with stolen cars, and I answered in a flat, matter of fact way.

Edit: people here just can't deal with the facts.
