An Official Joke

Dear Source:
The Virgin Islands Fifth Constitutional Convention is officially a joke. They did not go to work; they went to socialize. If I went to my job and walked around all day, I would be fired on the spot. The governor's office should step in. It is sending a message that the VI is lazy.
I was even shocked to read Del. Bryan's comments "The only compromise I have for you is a stick of dynamite," Bryan said. "You don't come near me." The VI police and the FBI should have been called immediately since that is a threat against a delegate's life and the people around him. It can also be taken as a terroristic threat. If this happened on Main Street, at a school, at the airport, or at a church, what would the police do then?
