Mr editor I am writing this article in the hope that you will have it published.
Concerning the incident that took place last Friday into Saturday in the Bottom area. I would like to voice my point on this matter.
I was no where in the vicinity , I do not know what happened because I was not there. That is the laws and the respective authorities job to deal with this case based on whatever information the have.
Mr Editor what has me as a local enraged is the following. I have taken note of different comments that was made against the Saban locals. Yes I am local and I am sick and tired of foreigners residing in my land and bad talking us . Mr. Editor I always said and I will continue to say these latin foreigners have nothing for Saba or its people. Calling us locals racist?? come on if Saba has been so bad towards you why are you still here? and why do you want to bring in more of your family??
Mr. Editor all that I am saying is based on all the comments regarding this incident and others in the past, where foreigners were in confusion with the law. I feel as a local I have to speak and defend our honor. If Saba is so bad and like you say and I quote “the local authorities are unprofessional and racists and that locals take advantage and foreigners take the responsibility” then I have to ask you the question what are you doing here on this 5 square miles rock? If your country is so much professional and better then you can always move back.
Mr Editor in ending I would like to say that at some point in almost all our lives we were foreigners in another mans land, and if we felt that country was not treating us fair we all had the option to go back where we came from.
Foreigners don’t be ungrateful and crucify Saba and its people. Saba has been good to all of you. If Saba had not been good to you, you would have long gone back home..
Thank you Mr Editor
