Fact or Mis-Information?
It is going to be interesting to see how the new governor and crew shakes out the corruption. See the article about Simmonds being arrested for taking $900,000 from the government. I have heard there are many more arrests to come. Along with that may come a cleaning up of the police. I am the continual optimist. That said, I have been here for seven years and have experienced some of the racism but it is subtle. I have found that a sense of humor goes a long way and one can get bad service anywhere. I must say though I am surprised when I go to the states, sit at a restaurant and am served within twenty minutes. I have lived here so long I have forgotten what good service is.

USVI had 43 murders last year, according to the Daily News. At 110,000 population that is about 39.1 murderes per 100,000. For a small population of 110,000 this is VERY high.
As I have wrote before, I know of how much crime is purported by the police there, and I know personally of how much crime in the USVI goes unreported. Yes, I am a x-con, and I have done many things I wish I never did.
Betty, tell your husband to watch out for Washington. He is horribly corrupt - I know this because I have seen him not only be paid off, but I have participated in illegal activities with him.
Are you publicly saying Betty's husband is on the take? That's my question to you - answer that straight up and we'll take it from there.
I am hoping I am misunderstanding what you are saying....I really am.
I am sorry Becky, I am NOT saying Betty's husband is on the take. I believe, more than likely, he is a strait shooter. I was simply giving advice on who to watch.
I read noone's remark to Betty as a caveat about a corrupt individual named Washington, not as a suggestion that Betty's husband is corrupt. Maybe there's some STX subtext that I'm missing but that's what it sounds like way over here 🙂
Thank you, noone - on re-reading, I see what you are saying......I thought you meant something entirely different, like watch out for Washington (as in D.C.) because you had been in on bad deals with Betty's husband. I apologize - thank you for explaining - but let's let this one die....it has all the makings of being very ugly....and Betty's husband is about as law-and-order as anyone I've ever met, so my old Southern redneck reared up - please excuse my outburst.
I agree with dontie - The personal pronoun "he" refers to the individual called Washington. Easy to be confused.
This is really reaching for me, but I can name many individuals, right up to the Chief of Police that I have been involved with such disgusting things as murder. Yeah, that is right, I can name the time to within 5 minutes, date, and location, including one senator who was involved.
I have over extended myself; and am risking my own life. I can only hope for my friends protection.
I probably should talk to Betty's husband, but I cannot risk my friends.
Dang it, even with my higher edjumacation I misread noonnies post.
My email is visable but I will type it out email@example.com. I will not give names and numbers out in this forum, but if you at least give me an email address I'm sure my husband or another agent will contact you.
Hes not really doing "Washington" too much harm. Is that a first name or last name or a nick name as soooo many poeple here go by that.
