quality food robbery
quality food was robbed the other day. one of the bad guys got shot and one got away. i think i also heard that the bad guys had guns and shot them at quality? glad no one who was innocent was physically hurt
Yep, they need to kill them just like thankfully did at Rotorheads two years ago. That's the only way to influence that group to make them think twice before trying it again. It's a waste of the police time and our money to apprehend them as they are out in a few days.
Killing one of their relatives will make things kinda' awkward next Thanksgiving dinner. Don'y ya think?
The real shame in all these criminals getting wounded, is the tax dollars being spent on their care at the hospital! It would be very interesting to find out how much $$$ is spent yearly on such cases as these. I highly doubt the criminal, or their family, is paying their Juan Luis bills.
Update... Another point of view on the robbery... and an "attaboy" to the V.I.P.D.
Their response time was still rapid and 1 of the 2 robbers was apprehended at the time so must give credit where credit is due.
Both to the presence of mind of the employee who had the awareness to call 911 and the quick police response to the call.
One more thug off the street and one, hopefully, to be apprehended, soon.
This issue hits home to me because one of the people that was there at Quality for the robbery is family to me and my wife as well as the daughter who is not a child, she is 9 MONTHS OLD.
The shoot first question is kinda a moot point when you are a mother and acting as a human shield as she did to protect her baby from harm. From what I have heard about what happened , bad guys shot first so why are the cops that responded in a admirable fashion being pulled over the fire for what was handled textbook. I thank god for the fact that those officers showed up in the way that they did , because of them I still have two people that are family to me still in my life rather than being cut down over greed and bullshit. Bit emotional ? You bet , the "child" , I see pictures of her all the time and she is just taking her first steps and such and all of that could have been lost in a heartbeat because 2 animals thought that it was better to pick up a gun and rob a place rather than earning a living. Would be nice to see them get the other person that was involved that got away that was involved in the robbery as well.
If I ever get the chance to meet the officers that responded, rather than trying to put them in jail, I would like to shake their hand and buy them dinner or something like that and just say "Thank you for being there" , too often the police get slammed for doing it wrong, they did it right and are being sold out by their own...... No wonder we can't get reliable enforcement in the islands.....
Shame on the VIPD brass for this and kudos to the officers ! ! !
so our tax dollars are paying to fly him somewhere and for the treatment to keep him alive and healthy? WHY
The same reason why it's done all over the US. The US legal system also provides for the medical care of a Death Row inmate with terminal cancer - just as an example.
Not specifically addressing your point but as a general observation about some responses on similar issues - Federal laws are Federal laws and when you perceive a wrongdoing by the court you can petition your local representatives 'til the cows come home to no avail unless the argument reaches the very highest level where changes to Federal laws are made.
