    Well yes to your analogy, well if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck.

    Agree with Imgram on this one. It's easy to scapegoat a certain set of people and blame them for the country's demise. It is POSSIBLE that some criminal elements slipped in, but it would be extremely unfair and probably factually false to say that everything was just peachy until "those evil Jamaicans" came in

    well to be fair, I am not saying Jamaicans caused all the social problems in the country, but some Antiguans claim that Jamaicans contribute more negativity than positivity to the island.

    So if this same sentiment is echoed in Barbados, Antigua, Cayman Islands, Turks, Bahamas, Toronto, London?

    what could be summarized from this?

    The point isn't whether she's right, the point is a basis for her belief. So A=B does mean A=C in this respect.

    You don't have to be fair because:
    1) it's her rationale, possibly
    2) Ingram says there aren't that many Trinis, so the Trinidad murder count isn't relevant. And I assume the Trinidadians there are of the educated variety.

    Not many trinis in Antigua. The few that I know about married local people and have businesses here eg. Roti King in St. John's is owned by a indo trinidadian that married a local woman. Plus couple of my friends that I went to college with are Trini's i.e. born in trinidad.
    We even have a few bajan people living here too in high positions and ting. But Antiguan culture I would have to say is mixed. Arwe lub pick up ebry ting we see ebry body else do. lol.

    In terms of crime in Antigua to me it has a lot to do with the deportee situation as well as the ever increasing drug situation. There might be couple foreign people involved however I can't blame them solely for the increase in crime. When I was much younger and foolish I used to but after noticing some things I realize how the thing really set up.

    It's uncanny how every thread this nimrod Steupz enters the level of discourse plummets. Dude is a certified ignoramus.
    Say no to drugs.
