Dear Source:

I am so sick about the senseless execution of a young man, Gabriel Lerner, with a wonderful life ahead of him that I could barely bring myself to look at the picture that thug, Frett, from Tortola who got back on island after being deported. Where the hell was Homeland Security? Why would a hotelier not check for valid id before allowing a guest to check in?
Add to this the gang killings and I wonder whether we shouldn’t just gather up all these killers and give them a choice: 1. Execute each other now and the last one standing will be shipped off to jail forever or 2. Put down your arms, let us help you to see what you can do to make a positive impact on your life and ours.
That new film about gun violence needs to be shown over and over until our young people really get it.
