For those who posted about hiring a security guard: check out Triple A Training and Security Services on STX. All employees are off duty police officers. They are always armed, in uniform (if requested), and have the ability to arrest. Not rent a cops- Real Cops, trained police officers. Rates are reasonable. I have used them several times with great success, even used them at Eat at Cane Bay last year during a New Years party. Long term or hourly contracts. PM me for their number or check out their banner in front of the old Nissan bldg. These guys are great to have watching your back or protecting your business or property, and all of the employees I have met are good people. Considering what's happening these days I am thinking about hiring them every time my wife and I go on a date after dark. With these guys on site you don't have to call the cops like with most other security arrangements- they are already there.

He was armed. I heard they used a decoy. They had another guy fire shots out by the road so the guard would go check that out.
While he was away from the restaurant the robbers then entered the restaurant.

I'm not taking away from the horrendous crime that was committed, but I don't think he was a Fed.

He was a security officer who worked for a local company contracted to provide security for the US Attorney's office, Social Security Office, etc.

I do hope that the Feds are looking into it though.

I hope that the feds are looking into all the murders and violent crime. It's about time the territorial government realized the problem is way beyond out-of-control. Criminals wandering around at large with out fear of conseqence. Guns and drugs pouring in though non-mantained boarders. Lack of police training and supervision. Lack of consistancy in the judical system. A population that doesn't trust or cooperate with the police (for valid reasons). No wonder we are set for another record year.....

i realize there is a portion of the population which perfers to 'downplay' the homicide rate, beliving (understandably) that it will negitivtly impact tourism. I also understand that some folks live inside insulated bubbles, having little interaction with the majority population, and feeling protected from dealing with the majority population's 'problems' (i.e. poverty, crime, poor health care, lack of eduaction, ect).

However, turning a blind eye will only make the problem worse. Soooner or later another tourist will be murdered. Another white retiree or executive shot. It's just a matter of time. These are small islands and bullets are colr blind.
