This was a very informative analysis of the murders in the VI during the past 14 years. While it confirms what most of us have been saying for years, it is still disturbing. We have known for years that most killing on the islands is about young men, drugs and crazy living. Poor parenting and ignorance.

In fact most of us are very safe except for the smallness and proximity of island living.

It shows that only a handful of deaths were not part of the crazy drug and gang and family culture. We should not minimize the threat, because there are still far too many violent events due to robbery and theft. However, it gives the public and the police a target to help prevent future bloodshed.

In other words, go to the projects and find those boys, teach their mothers to do a better job and dis-arm the boys before they kill.

wow, seeing it like that is really sad.

sheldon and dexter from the vibe piss me off sometimes. talking about how new jersey has more crime and they are coming down here saying the local police botched the investigation of the young man who was just killed. and maybe new jersey needs to worry about their own backyard before they worry about the man who was killed.
saying how when you say " per capita" that skews the results.
saying how the media blows it out of proportion when it is a tourist who gets killed
almost blaming the crime on the victim by saying maybe they go into shady areas

Amen speee1dy, amen.

The saddest thing is how young most of those in that list of victims were at the time of their death. Something is seriously broken in the culture of violence. 🙁
