Robberies at No Bones are nothing new. This wasn't the first, won;t be the last. But you know what? No Bones is awesome, and I will continue to go there regularly regardless of how many times they are robbed.

NugBlazer is right. I love the bar, good food, and Chuck is a great guy.
I hope their video cameras yield some useful info!

If they are robbed on that kind of a regular basis, why not offer a discount on food to local/fed police. I never understood why they don't do that here, you get free security for just a little off food. 10 to 20 percent on food is usually enough to bring them in.

Yeah, but all the bad guys would have to do is wait until the cops leave.

Yeah but thats not the type of criminals we generally have. It's usually young kids who think they know everything. And thieves are always going to go for the easiest target. This is a very cheap and easy way for restaurants to add another layer of protection. Do you really think these young kids have the kind of intell to know who all the cops are on island?

Of course, and what's more, the thugs are likely relatives/friends of relatives/friends of cops, and there isn't much motivation for cops to solve crimes when doing so will pi$$ off family/friends.

A friend of mine put it this way: "Stop taking cash and they'll stop coming for cash."

More Plastic seems like such an obvious solution.
So does a drop safe with a time delay.

The criminals-as-friends-and -family thing is the number one reason I hear for why the cops don't catch the bad guys. But is it true? ... if it is, we are all in a lot of trouble!

I'm sorry but the people robbing tourist on our boardwalk and our late night restaurants are not the sharpest or brightest. These are kids that can't even manage to graduate from a really bad educational system. The bartender at no bones that night said they were Very young and the guy with the gun hands were shaky really bad. Which would make the things so much more scarier if you have a jumpy young kid. Just because you grow up on an island does not mean you know everyone. There are soooo many people here in c'sted or f'sted that have never even seen the other city.

I am surprised at the apathy to this. I have to disagree with several people I usually agree with, but It is always better to try then give up. The other good thing about making any restaurant a cop hang out is even if they are not there they will show up a Hell of a lot faster if they like you and might actually do something.

you shouldn't have to bribe the police with free/discounted food and beverage in order for them to give you 'better'' service... that smacks of 'paying for protection' and in our corrupt little island could get out of hand very quickly. I vote more crimestoppers, more debit card/credit card payment capabilities, more video camera's and more vigilance, more night time police patrols, silent alarms, loud alarms... all that.

It's a very common practice stateside, some places just give them free coffee or water. Many places on the boardwalk do this. I think it has nothing to do with bribing and more to do with appreciation of what police officers do. Constantly putting their lives in danger to protect the public. Also I do not see how it could be bribing when a restaurant would be getting free security for 10 percent of the price of a meal.

Now here in the VI I know there is little respect for the local PD, but how much of that is really their fault and how much is the govt? And how many of us really are trying to make a difference and not just writing a letter once in a while? If our police force is so bad that we have zero respect for them then that is a seriously sad statement. And people should be in the street picketing, making their voices hear if we are really at that point. WAPA got us out in the street but crime and a horrible education system don't seem to get us in much of a uproar.

The few encounters I've had with VI police officers have been professional and pleasant. Even when I was pulled over for passing on a double yellow line (I'm not giving out details, but I was at fault) the officer was courteous, and sent me away with a warning.

They send everyone away with a warning. That's part of the problem!
