Unfortunately this seems to stem from the well know attitude found in the young "I Barrn Err" which loosely translated means, I come from the BVI, I am therefore entitled to everything, to do anything I want to to anyone, and expect no repercussions whatsoever. It is a real shame that an entire generation seems to have grown up here completely ill-prepared for adulthood, from work ethic to expected standards of social behavior. Very sad indeed.

Our black men need to find better ways to resolve disputes rather than taking lives and making themselves criminals. I understand that the death penalty for murder is in conflict with international standards of HRC however it may need to be reintroduced to deter these heinous acts. Also, remember that you do not only have to answer to society but you have to answer to God. What is happening to our morals? Our crime rate is soaring - we are worse than St. Thomas and St. Croix at this point

"Our black men need to find better ways to resolve disputes rather than taking lives and making themselves criminals" - This I agree "...we are worse than St. Thomas and St. Croix at this point" - Really now?

It's been proven over and over again that the death penalty isn't a deterrent to violent crime, which is why the majority of developed countries have abolished it.
