    Incredibly, he was given a second chance despite shooting at the police back in 2009 only to allegedly squander it seven years later.

    Besides, an extended stay behind bars will do its victim’s justice.

    Wow, the guests and tourists reading this story will wonder why on earth was he hired as a security guard at Point Pleasant Resorts?

    They will think that the USVI only hires criminals in the work force without conducting a criminal background check.

    This sort of mishap is possibly a reason why some visitors will decide not to return back in the near future.

    Do you really expect the criminals to protect the tourist?

    I doubt that very seriously.
