     There will always be re-occurrence of a number of crimes because of the way the criminals are dealt with.  When known criminals commit  crimes, the law should subscribe the time and the courts pass sentences accordingly, not reduce the sentences.  Make an example of one criminal and see if that would not reduce the incidents.  Give maximum sentences.  Reduce operation cost at Northward Hotel.  No air-conditioning, TV, 3 small meals and no snacks.  Farm to provide their food.  The hardworking people of these islands can’t afford air-conditioning, so why should criminals enjoy such luxuries at the up-right citizens expense.

    How nice that they allowed the public to know. How about CNS looking into finding the story on the home invasion in South Sound that was not put out to the public?
