    Yes that is correct, they were released.  They had the WRONG persons as usual!! Always locking up the wrong people just to make the communityfeel at ease, to make us think that they are actually doing something worthwhile, meanwhile the culprits are still at large, free to commit more crimes, while the innocent suffer. That’s the era we’re living in with corrupt police officers and judicial system.

      Stop talking out of your backside.  I expect they had to squeeze these uncooperative deadbeats and then offer them a walk to give up the real shooter, or some variation on that theme.  I seriously doubt these deadbeats were innocent: the report says "Police arrested three men in connection with the shooting and possession of an unlicensed firearm immediately following the incident", which suggest that at very least they faced a 10 year minimum sentence for illegal possession of a firearm.  I’d trade that for the shooter. 

      If you wouldn’t, it’s a good thing you aren’t actually involved in the administration of justice.  Stick with shooting off your mouth here.

    ONE BY ONE, and who says the police is not on top of things.  RCIP you are working for your money, and it is high time they get down right agressive  and run things.

      Thanks to the community of the Cayman Islands who have decided that enough is enough.  Remember the police needs your continued support to make Cayman a better place safe for your children and Grand Children. Blessed.
