Crime Wave May Mean Canceled Vacation

Dear Source,
Well – we are now thinking about not making the journey to "paradise" after this crime wave, which has police doing nothing, and not responding to questions.
Perhaps if there was some sort of reassurance that the public is actually being helped, it would give us some comfort. But having a "pending" vacation to the East End for our first island vacation is all of a sudden not looking too great, and we are thinking about going elsewhere now, unless we hear things are being done.
