"The two victims were identified by police as 30-year old Rasheem Edwards of Sion Farm and 25-year-old Shadon Beazer of Harborview Aparments.
They were the 12th and 13th homicides on St. Croix since the beginning of the year, and bring the territory's total for the year to 30, not including suicides and vehicular homicides."

Only 4 more homicides and we will catch up with St Thomas.

Cre, thank you for posting, and I hope that you continue to post your thoughts and experiences. I think your perspective is invaluable to anyone thinking about moving here. Maybe a blog and YouTube video should be your next project?

IMO, creativity is the best chance of earning a living in the VI if you're not a healthcare or education professional. Technology enables more people to market themselves and a concept to a worldwide audience so forget about limiting yourself to the VI market and think about what St Croix offers that you can market to the world.

Many are funding their projects through crowd funding, and our SBA on St Thomas is offering a seminar to teach more residents how to finance their projects from small individual donors.

The VI needs more people like you to forge an individual path. Be creative and hang in there, and blessings to you and your mother.

Welcome to the USVI! Unsafe on any island.

And no word mentioned of the couple here two weeks ago to buy real estate. Held at gunpoint mid day by cottages - robbed of everything while the wife begged for her life.

Needless to say they left and won't be buying property here.

I feel that monogram is on point with his assessments. Sad but true. That video of the senator literally made my jaw drop. I can't even wrap my brain around it.

While I'm sure the segregation existed on STT I personally never felt it. I had more WI friends than white friends there and never though twice about starting up a convo with locals but here I find it difficult to do so.

A person's experience with crime on STX is like pregnancy... everyone's is different. Some have it easy, some difficult. The different experiences to both situations can be attributed to the choices you make, the resources you have (not money, like having a dog or a fence/gate around your home), and plain ol' luck.

I was there for 4 years and never had a problem and never felt threatened. But security was something that was always in the back of my mind. I used to work in New York City and it was the same feeling. Not that I was unsafe, just that I had to be aware of the realities of life in NYC and behave accordingly.

We were there for such a short time but I have never felt more a part of a community and known more people. People are soooo courteous and friendly and that really opens up the ease of building acquaintances and friendships. Not only did I like "people" better I liked myself better. It feels good to be friendly and kind and have that reciprocated. Plus there's only 50K people and there's kind of the mentality of "We're all in this together".

If there was one thing that I wish STX would be better at it would be accountability and doing things better. There's a pervasive attitude of "You live in paradise. If you want it you have to live with the pot holes and power outages on sunny days." Government is pretty corrupt and that definitely impacts everyone's life on a daily basis. Even so I didn't want to leave, I loved my life on STX.

What cottages? It wasn't Cane Bay Cottages was it? Did the person just walk up to the couple?

Surely that couple read this blog and deduced that to be safe, you just need to not "hang with the wrong crowd" as the apologists always tell us. 😉

Good point about the segregation. Your last sentence fascinates me, because I understand exactly how true it is.

Who knows where the details are. I believe it was cottages by the sea? are there other cottages in fsted? Sorry I live close but don't often venture that direction. It was reported to VIPD and yes they were working with a realtor.
