Am I missing something? It sounds like your trivializing the serious crimes that have taken place on SXM. That's disrespectful to the victims!
What you have listed are incidents to stupid people. Sure there's stupidity all over the world. But, as you know, crime has escalated in SXM. Are people a little more nervous about their vacation now than a few months ago? More than a year ago? You bet they are. While I was there I'll tell you what I saw:
3 men 'whacking off'
on Orient, in front of people! I told security about it and they chuckled. In fact they know ELVIS, who I guess does it with hopes of meeting young, stupid
An innocent woman hit in the jaw by one of these nutcases, several times, requiring her going to the hospital!! No security around
Young people in Grand Case sitting on a car and wouldn't move even though they
were asked nicely. Then they chased the car and banged on it!! MINE!!
A young man lurking
in the bushes near my villa.....crouched down!! I saw him and put my flashlight in his eyes. Then he turned and ran! What do you think he was up to?? I'd say he was looking to ROB ME!
And, Denis, that's just ME!! I heard more and more crime stories 2 weeks ago than I've heard in 60+ visits in 23 yrs.,to my beloved santuary, SXM. I'm very saddened by what's going on.....in fact, I'm sick over it
. Is it EVERYWHERE on SXM?? Probably not, but what is going on must be stopped or the tourist $$$$ will greatly diminish. I feel for my dear friends who live on SXM and depend on tourist $$$$. These incidents will affect their livelihood. Very sad.
I am trying to help do something about it. I may not be successful but I feel better doing something than doing nothing
Please don't make a joke of it......thank you.
