Late Night Muggings at Gov't Lot in C'Sted

They're at it again! Just a quick note to advise you late night clubbers that the muggers are out working downtown and the Government Parking Lot in Christiansted. A young female leaving Davey Jones Locker was apparently followed to the Government Parking Lot late last night/early this morning. The mugger actually got into her car and demanded she drive him somewhere. When she refused, he bashed her in the face and stole her wallet. In a possibly related incident at roughly the same time, shots were discharged near the government lot behind the Holger Dansk Hotel. A police report was subsequently filed immediately afterward, but we all know that rarely results in any action or enhanced patrols. Please be warned and warn your young bar hoppers also.

A young female alone at night. Not really a bright idea.

THAT was not the whole story to that situation! Yes, she did get beat-up but, there's more to the story than what's on here. When ones looking for trouble, trouble follows...

Two people were seen arguing in that lot the other night, and one of the arguers (a man) fired a shot in the direction of two restaurant workers who came upon the scene. I was told this by restaurant worker.

Why does our society just accept the fact that it's not a good idea for a woman to walk around alone at night? Sure, it's unsafe, and we shouldn't do it, given the way our society is, but does that mean we shouldn't try to make our home safer? Wouldn't it be nice to live in a place where it's perfectly safe for anyone to walk around alone? Stop blaming the victim.

In the government parking lot no less.

Every time a thread is started about crime in the islands, what are some of the first things we all jump in and say?

1. Aren't there areas in your hometown where you wouldn't go alone at night?
2. Don't be in areas, late at night, where you shouldn't be, and you'll be fine.
3. Just don't do stupid stuff. Use common sense!
4. Stay away from gangs and drugs and don't get drunk and wander into the wrong area. (NOT saying the lady was/did...I don't know.)
5. Be aware of your surroundings.

Etc., etc.

Yes, it's a shame that a person isn't safe anywhere they want to be at any hour of the day or night, but unfortunately that's not the case here, or anywhere else. That's not blaming the victim. It may be accusing the victim of not using good common sense. Hopefully her injuries aren't too serious, and she won't find herself in that type of situation again. And hopefully, it may cause others to think more about what they are doing.

Does anyone know her? Is she OK?

Still blaming the victim Juanita. It would be funny to see you become a victim.

Would it really? I would never, ever consider it funny for someone to be a victim, even someone I don't know, who maybe was in the wrong place, at the wrong time. But, if that's your style, well, you entitled to your opinion.

Davey Jones Locker is where Indies used to be.

Back when the Casbah was there on Strand street, Roger used to hire security guards to watch Government Lot. I think Zebos did that for a while too. The Police need to post snipers with NVGs at each end of government lot.

Yep it is funny - to watch you cry about how your a victim when you blame victims for the circumstances - no less here than in a government parking lot in the middle of the biggest city on STX.

She was NOT wrong for being where she was.

I want to talk more about this. You know, NONE of the people I victimized were responsible for what happened. They just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.In absolutely no way were they responsible for what I did.

Here, with this woman, we are not talking about her walking around in the projects. We are talking about her being in a major government center where she was taken advantage of, in her car and she has ZERO responsibility for what happened.

//haven't been in trouble for more than 20 years, I am reformed
