Sunny Isle Shooting
Just read about the Sunny Isle shooting yesterday. The cops caught two and shot two.
sometimes our cops get a lot of bashing but way to go guys. nicely done and Thank You
One adult and kids age 14-17, either shot or apprehended.
Way to go cops! Hours later Lower Love Gas Station was robbed and the owner was shot in the leg and one of the perps was apprehended.
St Croix is beautiful Hate to hear of the crime My hope is more jobs and maybe we would not have less crime!
Need more gun control!!
how much more gun control is going to keep the bad guys from getting guns illegally
Exactly spee1dy! Also the economy is not 100% to blame for these types of thugs robbing in broad daylight.
Another problem that I have with this crime: acc. to the Source the wounded criminals were taken to the hospital for treatment. With all the budgeting problems the hospital has, I wonder how much $$$ goes to treat criminals on a yearly basis? And how many of the criminal's bills go unpaid?
I'm new to St Croix and so saddened by this. My wife and I were there 10 minutes before this occurred along with a lot of shoppers on a Saturday midday. I happened to notice a security guard standing outside who obviously wasn't a deterrent and without a gun. What do people think the actual punishment will be? Is jail time so weak to not be a deterrent? These idiots put a lot of innocent people at risk. I can't imagine that store had a lot of money on hand. I'm just sad this happens here and that things have gotten to the point where this kind of stuff can actually happen.
I'm beyond excited that a lot of the recent robbery/ shooting headlines include the words "apprehended" and "custody". Maybe the VIPD is stepping up it's game? Hopefully the courts will do the same.
i heard one of the people involved was a kid of 13, who happened to be laughing as he was being loaded into the hospital.
If their under 18, they pretty likely won't be doing any time!
Yeah turn them over to their parents, they've done a great job so far.
No, have the "alleged child" parents take their place for whatever term. Rotate em every 6 months to take care of the child. Work mandatory no gov. yeah that will happen
