from the sounds of it he's starting to talk the "native" talk at the constitution,and if you read his campaign lit there's nothing in there to give that kind of impression,but then i wonder as an educator how in this day and age he can't know what the kinsey report is

That might be a rat, Trw. I've had that happen in my place when a couple got in when a sliding door to the deck was left open in the evening. Chewed through the washer hose too. They actually nested behind the dishwasher & it was a real nasty mess when I got the dishwasher pulled out & fixed. 😛 Those were a couple of expensive rats.

like i said the people refered to as locals or natives by themselves are not indignous,the locals themselves are using the term "native"rights i was merely parroting,like i said the arawaks got eaten by the invading caribes.,who in turn were wiped out by the europeans,ok so this is the story about the cab shooting i got from my driver yesterday,he talked to the driver the night before and he was told the guy that got shot was shot while still in the van and fell out of the van,the dead guy had an accomplice in the van with him that managed to get dead guys gun and jump into a jeep that was tailing the taxi van,there was a witness to all of it, a female passenger that tried to flee the scene because she did not want to be a witness but someone grabbed her before she got away ans held her there until the police arrived so she could corraberate the drivers story, and of course the dead guys family is running around telling everyone that the driver shot him because he could'nt pay the fare and that he was such a nice boy,so thats the story i heard,i dunno i say score one for the driver.

If what the Daily News said is true, the guy shot had been arrested previously & was out on bail from robbing a north shore restaurant where he also shot off his gun. IMO, he shouldn't have been out on bail since a gun was involved in the original crime.

Trade not to down play what was done, but the guy that died, gave a ride to the person who actually did the robbery and shot the gun. The guy who did it admitted it and to being the mastermind to the police when they were stopped.

Which crime? The original restaurant one or the taxi driver robbery? I see your point, Cruzkandy but how was the driver to know that when he was being robbed? In this day & age, I can't say I blame the driver but it's just a pity that it's come to this down here. It's just a same this 21 year old has twice (that we know of) been involved in crimes of this nature.

Trade I was talking about the incident at the Restaurant. The guy who died, gave the guy that robbed the restaurant (Rivera) a ride. The one that died was not one that shot the gun and that robbed the restaurant.

If he (the guy who gave the ride) was waiting outside the restaurant while it was robbed, then he IS an accomplice. He (the driver) knew what was about to happen IE.......robbery @ GUN POINT....so if you knowingly & willfully help or commit a VIOLENT CRIME, then you may just get shot at or killed............I personally do not have any sympathy for criminals....robbers or the punks driving the get away car!
Too bad the other bullets missed the surviving scum!

islandtyme this is about two separate incidents....the guy that died got arrested before for a robbery at a restaurant then he was shot and killed for this taxi incident. trade brought up the incident at the restaurant and said that the guy that got killed was the one that shot the gun, i was merely clarifying that he was not the one that shot the gun as trade stated. i more than understand the law and comprehend that he was an accomplice, LIKE i said before, i am not in any way, downplaying what happen. wrong is wrong and what he did was wrong

Bazil was one of two men arrested Jan. 28 after robbing a restaurant-bar in Peter's Rest. He and the other suspect were released on bail -- Bazil put up property as security -- and was given permission to travel to Texas for National Guard training.
***** He had been scheduled for a June trial on charges of first-degree robbery, third-degree assault, brandishing a firearm, failure to report ammunition and unauthorized possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Bazil's co-suspect in the January crime, Luis Rivera, was also released on bail in that case. He was arrested Friday and charged with first degree robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon during the commission of a crime of violence and brandishing and exhibiting or using a deadly weapon in connection with a robbery at Napoleon's Pizza in December.
Sounds to me like he had a gun, but who knows the source could be wrong.
Needless to say Karma fixed this mess!! Not to mention the scum should have NEVER been released period.

Cruzcandy, please don't think I'm attacking you, I'm not!

VIA - Virgin Islands Daily News

He and Luis Rivera, 24, of Estate Whim had pleaded not guilty to first-degree robbery, third-degree assault, brandishing a firearm, failure to report ammunition and unauthorized possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, stemming from a Jan. 27 robbery at Junie's Bar and Restaurant in Estate Peter's Rest.

Police said Rivera went into the restaurant with a gun and demanded money, then fired a shot before leaving.

Police arrested the two in the Estate Glynn area minutes after the robbery and Rivera admitted to being the mastermind behind the robbery. He told police he got a ride from Bazil and robbed the place because he was broke.

~~~~This is what I was speaking about islandtime! Yes he was charged with all of those things, but it is very common for all parties involved to be charged with the same thing. It is then up to the attorney to try to get some charges dropped. Then it is up to the jury to decided which charges she stay.

like i said the people refered to as locals or natives by themselves are not indignous,the locals themselves are using the term "native"rights i was merely parroting,like i said the arawaks got eaten by the invading caribes.,who in turn were wiped out by the europeans,

this question of indigenous peoples got me to wondering, since it seems to stir up so much in the way of controversy. mainly, people stating that one must be the absolute original inhabitants of a place. if history has taught us anything, it's that peoples traveled and inhabited and conquered and absorbed... and it was between and among all races, going one way or the other - not all white or black or brown or yellow or red. that being said, i thought it might be interesting to note the current united nations take on this word, as the movement continues to assure the rights of indigenous peoples around the world. This is from the united nations permanent forum on indigenous issues (inpfii):

http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/en/data.html

***The variation in the definitions of “indigenous” could pose a problem in collecting data. There are regional differences of opinion when it comes to the concept of “indigenous” and the terms “tribal” or “ethnic group” are also used. Within the context of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples it had been decided not to adopt any formal definition of the term, and self-identification had been stressed.

Collecting statistics based on indigenous languages is useful, but languages do not give a complete picture of the indigenous population, especially as languages are lost following urbanization, discrimination and other factors.

Standard forms of questions used do not always accurately reflect the situation of indigenous peoples — for example, indigenous family and social patterns are sometimes very different from the profile of the rest of the population.

Due to increasing migration, indigenous peoples who move to other countries (either voluntarily or as result of expulsion or fleeing conflict) are often faced with the dilemma of no longer having the opportunity of identifying as indigenous in their new country of residence.

Finally, the fact that indigenous peoples often reside in areas affected by war and conflicts pose an additional challenge in terms of data collection.***

this is part of a global initiative, from 2005 to 2015, the "second decade of the world's indigenous peoples".
http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/en/second.html

i am thinking that the act of having africans brought over to the islands to work in the plantation industries, and the resulting state of these peoples does fit within the definition of "indigenous". of course i realize that in many cases, some africans were complicit in this process, but it does not diminish the result - a displaced people now generations removed, but still distinctly african in many customs and mores, cuisines and arts.

they are not indigenous to the islands (unless descended from the previous amerinds), but they are recognized as indigenous according to the u.n.. and, i guess, so would i be - descended from african and native american peoples. however, my personal culture is very different from that of virgin islanders, whom i feel are more close to the african.
