Here’s what’s on tap at the V.I. Legislature this week.
On Thursday, April 25, the St. Thomas community was enjoying J'Ouvert when the celebration was shattered by gunshots which injured three people. Public safety officials immediately canceled the remainder of J'Ouvert.
On March1 2010 a tourist and innocent bystander was attacked by a local Ashana Powell, Ashana was trying to attack another local. As reported it appeared it was no big deal. This female tourist returned to the states with slash marks from a broken beer bottle to her face and arms and a broken nose. She was not the only victim a gentleman that tried to help stop the crazy lady with a beer bottle was also slashed in the arm.
By March 5 at home in the states she had her left eye removed.
Ashana Powell was charged with 3rd degree assault. What about attempted murder or assault with a deadly weapon. A broken beer bottle can certainly kill. The victim has received no assistance from the organizations set up for victims. For the rest of her life she will be disfigured and what will happen to the alleged attacker?
True to form NOTHING if things continue as they have for years Is it 18 or 19 murders so far this year?
