  1. I say bring back hanging and the cat whip immediately, the stabbing and shooting would stop, but as the law stands there’s no deterrent for these off the wall young people.
    Sending them to prison is no deterrent for them.

  2. Antigua4ever you said it and I’ve been saying it since the storm, “no deterrent”. The punishment is laughable to these people. High daylight on our main street and then in the heart of our Tourist district. One has to be an idiot, very brave, just don’t care a dam about the justice system, or is truly a Badman and a Badman may be disciplined by “hanging or cat whip”.
