Nice! I suppose you can be pretty flippant about it as long as it isn't your daughter getting kidnapped or someone you know getting robbed or beheaded.

Flippant? Hardly. What a silly comment. I have no illusions about living here. The problems with crime and violence that we have today we've had for decades. I've known numerous people including family members who have suffered or been killed.

What does surprise me is that the government thinks this is a good place to develop a 100% tourism-based economy in numerous communities. One act of violence can easily scare away tourists for years. This is something I know about because I lived it in my youth in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
