    I'm sure with the two campgrounds in the area. These might have been tourists and not locals?

    @WOW: Who cares where you have lived in Canada? It is illegal for a group of people to assault a camper on the beach.

    Gentle Island my you know what. They do it because they know there are no consequences. Cops need the support of the Judicial System to have any effect. Unfortunately our judges operate more like a dysfunctional family. You never know what you'll get just that it won't make sense or be a deterrent.

      The police do the best they can to find these people and get them into the court... And for what? So a judge can turn around and give them a gentle pat on the back before sending them on their way?? I shudder to think what terrible things will have to happen on our island before criminals are actually punished.

      Friendly or Gentle Island is a misnomer. Only Islanders believe this lie!
