    The dump is too good for Bodden Town.  It is no better than West Bay when it comes to allowing scum to thrive.

    20:02 He did not shoot himself. He was shot by the same alien that shot Dr. Frank and who transported both of them to the George Town Hospital in his Space Craft. The alien then departed Earth in his Space Craft  off Smith Road.  End of case.

    Take the known criminals in BToff the street.  Ankle braclets are of no use.  They roam where ever they want and evade the police.  We need smart, fast thinking, alert officers, who can identify the individuals and not pass them by not knowing exactl whom they are looking for.  Tricks and trade on travellers.

      How do you know this has anything to do with anyone from BT?  And if you do know something rather than blame the RCIPS, why don't you try go give them the info that apparently you seem to think you have in case its helpful?

      To other readers.  As a BTer myself I can tell you we have many, many people who love to start gossip and rumours about completely innocent people being "known criminals, prostitutes, drug dealers" etc.  Whilst I admit we do have our share of rogues and ruffians, I would never believe a word uttered to me by a fellow BTer as I know of way too many occasions over the years where completely innocent people have been harrassed by the police and even prosecuted and taken through court only to be acquitted, as in evidence it often transpires that many of these cases are based on pure heresay and malicious gossip.  Its got to stop and people have got to learn to be less judgmental and base what they say on facts.  All these unecessary prosecutions and police actions would soon stop if the police and court sued people who instigate this for wasting police time – and I really wish they would.

        Known criminals are sheltered by their faily members, when they should be turning them in to the Police.  They are eyesores to society/community.  Teach them to walk the straight and narrow pathway to a rewarding life.  The time they sit and plan to rob and steal, would be better spent seeking employment, or being creative with their hands. Idle minds, evil thoughts and deeds.

      21;02,  Yes I agree with your comments, but those ankle braclets should be put on the BT Police.  It  is a waste of time, unless those ankle braclets are water proof, sallt water proof and rust proof, because these same ankle braclet criminals is cleaning the reef daily of Lobsters and conch, walking boldy through the streets passing the police car.

      The BT Police need to stop and park and observe the Public beach and back roads of this Town.  Drugs are being sold like candy.

        Check the by-pass and the roadside where they congregate, investigate and they may be in to something.  The police should be more observant.  There are incidents happening on the field behind the police station in BT, where the younger children are set to fight one another and the older ones enjoy the entertainment.  Lucky for them, I don't have any small children, because they would only try it once.   Some of the BT police just turn a blind eye, that is the reason people are not as helpful as they should be.

    I don't suppose this was the same car that transported Dr. Frank?

      Some of you have got to be nuts, blaming the police.  If you think that the police is not doing their job good enough why dont you join them or come up with a sensible plan instead of chatting stupidness, about "come on crip do your job and earn your money.  Think about your words and tell me what you can do to help.
