From a facebook post.

"Just an FYI. Fellow vendors who set up at the Palms on Monday nights with me had a rough night going home. They took the bypass back around by Hess going home last night. 2 locals in a red pickup tried to bump and run them off the road. They had a gun and were gonna rob them. My friend saw the gun when the guy got out of the red pick up ,threw it in reverse and after a short chase and them bumping their car a couple times my friends got away. Please let friends know to stay on main roads at night. Some folks are getting desperate"

This is true. I spoke w/the man last night. Incident occurred on NorthShore Rd. just after the bridge by the turn to Frangipani Rd. He got blocked in by 2 vehicles and shots were fired. No one was injured. He was able to speed away and called the police from Off The Wall. Incident occurred at approx. 8 pm.

Three separate incidents Monday night; the two noted above, and another near Singh's in Christiansted. All involved a red truck.

And someone else posted on Facebook that their red truck was stolen Monday night. I can't find the damned post now, but I think it was a 2003 Ford.

Yeah, that's it. I still can't find the post now, you know how they randomly come and go on your timeline when you go back you can't always find something you saw earlier.

That's because these assholes have no fear of getting caught. They either are related to someone in power or know our police force is incompetent. Bring in off island police to help. There is no shame is asking for help if needed VIPD.

The red pickup stolen from off the wall was May 5. The posts are being restarted in light of the incidents that have occurred.

That's because you are walking victims that have no ability to protect your selves.

Just remember, when seconds count the cops are only minutes away (or here.. hours).

Depending on cops to keep you safe will get you killed 90% of the time. Become self reliant, get a gun permit and be a responsible owner. That's about the worst mentality possible and if living HERE hasn't taught you that... haha

awee, victim mentality is cute.

think like that all you want, and when you get into a situation that you can't protect yoru self, just complain to the bad guys that the cops should be there to save you.

Reality is real, victim mentality is useless to reality.

Yes, you have a responsibility, and it's NOT to see your self as a victim.
