'SHIP OFF THE LOW-LIFES'

Dear Source:
What are you going to do – wait until your low-lifes burn the island? Wake up. The many good people have let a few bad ones ruin the island for everyone. If they don't have a full time job, a place to live and a drug-free and crime-free record, they need to be shipped off. How about Sudan since they seem to want to sit on their behinds and wait to be fed. It's time for 95 percent of welfare to end.
I have enjoyed coming to St. Croix twice a year for the last 30 years and staying on the West End, but have really noticed a decline in the last 15 years. My last 10-day stay this past April was more like an endurance trial with all the crime that was going on.
Sincerely,
Marilynn Reeves
