When I was down last year my fishing poles were stolen from my front porch...I complained....I was told it was cute.....that I should not leave stuff out, it is an invitation ....to me it is theft/tresspassing...the local attitude needs to be reversed or things will get much worse..In my opinion there is an internal problem on the island...clean up your own house first....My opinion

dex, that is very true. The whole island has to change our attitude about theft. We've taken a permissive stance far too long. Now, I also worry that as people began to feel more threatened by violence etc. we may find citizens arming themselves for protection. Another new set of problems comes with that scenario.

Too late...they are and have been. To be legal it's an expensive proposition. Annual gun permit fee is $500

Wholeheartedly behind this last point. There is a culture of theft, plus the childish one of "not telling" on someone you see stealing. Sometimes feels like a conspiracy.

Well. just have to tell you my big mistake. Last year when I was fed up with Charile stealing my orchids, decided I would go online and order handcuffs, with the idea that if I caught him, would cuff him to my cart and drag his happy ass to town. Not a good idea, still getting spams wanting me to buy the whips, chains, and leather!

Supply and demand will always keep these guys in business..

Lovey it is well documented that small crimes lead to big crimes when all they get is a slap on the wrist..No Fear so why not?

It all goes back to Knowing RIGHT from Wrong and having the FEAR of Impending Doom from (fill in the blank)it you play you should Pay and Pay dearly....

I doubt we will ever win the war on drugs here in the US so what are the boards thoughts on legalizing it,taxing it and putting the growers out of business when their crops are not worth a hellva lot ??.

Booze during prohibition made organized crime millions. It's no secret why drugs are being kept "taboo" and illegal.

If for some reason big business no longer controlled the free world, illicit drugs could be made legal and taxes and controlled similar to booze and tobacco (ATF to ATF&N for narcotics).

Prices could maintain giving less to the cartels and more to the farmers and taxing agencies.

Imagine, like John Lennon, just wishful thinking.
