    The police have made real headway. You can’t expect crime to drop to zero: it can only be controlled, like mosquitoes and ‘flu. Give the police credit where credit is due. And if we hoped our young would look up to our leaders and emulate them, well, they’re doing a pretty good job of it. In fact, they’re a mirror to some who should be demonstrating leadership through the integrity of their actions, but can’t find it within themselves and don’t know the meaning of shame.

    Bush only pays attention to crime, when it comes close to Tourism, the Rich Man and his home. He don’t care a 1cent for the small businesses. He only cares about the Rich man.

    You cannot go back…….

    But you can learn from your mistakes……

    I used to enjoy stopping at the 7-11 and gettin a pattie from Mista Bodden in his white pants, white shirt and the hat. Wonderful times…..

    Bush has lostcontrol of the Cayman Islands. 

    A true leader would NOT accept the level of crime in his/your country.

    Bush would like to continue as an elected member only to make a fat pay cheque, get a great pension ( at your expense West Bay )  and get into bed with some developers and get a piece. 

    It is time for an attack on crime, no Bush finga pointin from Bush, someone needs to do something.

    Alden…what will you do to address the crime in Cayman?????

    Don’t worry. I predict an overthrow of Bush. Mike Adam gets the police. Baines leaves and Caymanians rejoice.

        and crime?… will go through the roof.

        Whether you like Baines or not on a personal level, I do not believe anyone can claim he has been unsuccessful. In his time on the Island we have seen a reduction in Murders, the gang problems are not making the news every day, and the police do seem to have gotten a handle on this latest crime spike. A few months ago everyone was saying that armed robberies averaged out at one every 2 or 3 days. What’s the average now? A couple of articles below this one there’s a story of a burglar being caught in the act and arrested by the police, but there’s not one comment about that. Some people are only happy when they are complaining, and that does a disservice to the people in charge of the RCIPS whose policies are beginning to pay dividends, but more importantly it’s a crushing blow to the rank and file police on these islands who are trying their hardest to make a difference.
