Books about Anguilla


Monday, 21 May 2012


Our primary role as citizens is to prepare our nation for how the world really works - though in the real world you don't always get what you want, we're not the only influence in our nation’s development, so we better be the best influence possible. Crime awareness promotes crime prevention, and with every senseless occurrence, crime affects the spectrum of our society. Industries are not necessarily detoured by crime, but rather the inability to curb such crime, and the covering of such crime is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal wrongdoing. This irresponsible behaviour by our authorities, and businesses alike, is immoral and misleading; and over the years has created a “huge crime seen”. It’s the awareness of criminal activity which increases everyone’s knowledge of how to handle crime in the event when such crime affects our lives. It is to be alert wherever you are, learning to recognize crime, and knowing what to do when crime strikes in your area.

This is where all are guilty… for 30 pieces of silver we are prepared to sell our souls.

I can only be honest… Anguilla is what it is: “A HUGE CRIME SCENE”. And no Secret Service Mission will unearth our unsolved mysteries. It must be a conscience and conscious decision, and it starts with us…

Or, are we all criminals?

  1. I think we all are criminals. Many people throughout the Caribbean came to Anguilla running from their bad debts or the law in other islands. This has created a psyche in the mentality that to be smart is to successfully evade the law. Anguilla has always been in a cultural war and today the crime only reflects how much we are loosing this war. Education is the only key for a people to change themselves, but when a man can deceive another man and then be termed educated, then a people will never become educated thus be reduced to a fail state because of the crime and violence in it. All of this negative energy stems from greed. When last has any of us decided to share especially in these times of recession. When last when we cooked a pot of food and know the smell goes to the west in our neighbour house, that we go and offer some? Again, this level of crime is only an indicator that we are loosing the cultural war as we have abandoned our cultural morals and principles for our own selfish and greedy ambitions.
