Intimidation of witness, lack of protection for witness, lack of investigation....

Which takes me back to my earlier statements - there's not much the police or the regular folks can do when you have a big clan protecting one of their own.

one thing that most crime perpetrators have in common is that they have big families, know a lot of people protecting them. The same big families electing the public officials, working in government offices, and know almost everybody. It is hard to penetrate these close family ties.

Leave George Bush's family out of this 😮

I beg your pardon. However you did it, to copy that quote, I never said any such thing. Please when quoting. use the right person's quote.

eeva1122 quoted something I said and then said that. The way you have it shows me saying something I did not!

I have been to Burmuda and it is a lovely, friendly place and it's true you cannot rent a car.
I thought that Burmuda also limited the number of personally owned vehicles 1 family could have.
This might not be a bad idea for us to implement if there was great public transportation.
Their buses are excellent and get you anywhere you need to go and are on time.
Meanwhile, we have NO public transportation on the northside of STT, at all, and who knows when a bus is going to arrive.
Plus the buses our government buys are not suitable for our mountainous terrain.

Bermuda would be a model to aspire to if our topography were similar but it's not even close. The highest elevation in Bermuda where "rolling hills" prevail over our "volcanic peaks" is 249 ft compared to that on St Thomas of 1556 ft. Only one private four-wheeled vehicle per person or family or household unit is allowed in Bermuda but there's no limitation on scooter or moped ownership as, unlike St Thomas, the topography lends itself to such forms of transportation. Apples and oranges.

Why doesn't the NPS supply busses to access STJ's popular northshore beaches? NPS busses are at all the other major parks: Yosemite, Grand Cyn, Zion (you aren't even allowed to bring in car unless you have overnight reservations). Better for the eviroment (rememer it's supposed to be a park not a profit center).

Uhm, my apologies. I just copied and pasted, didn't edit or revise anything. If that wasn't your quote, then you were probably the addressee of that person's statement.
