    Only 6 comments means people are not interested anymore in these stories. They are getting used to it.

    From here there is no return.

    Interesting these criminals are all 5'9, dark complexion and speak with caymanian or jamaican accent.

    Caymanian accent?  So, it is not Mr. O'Malley, Phutang, Dombrowski, Aquino, or Cruz committing these crimes, but our own unemployed and lost youth.

    Caymanian unemployment and lack of vocational training will be our government's downfall.  Stop giving building contracts for buddies and start investing in the future of our people.  Literacy, Vocational Skills, and Immigration that doesit's job without favortism….

      Just to remind you that when there were reports of robbers with Jamaican accents there was chorus of voices that we could not therefore conclude that the culprits were Jamaicans.  We cannot make sweeping generalisations as to our crime problem based on the accent of one or two perps. 

    • It is what it is says:

      You cannot sit there and expect or wait for your Government to solve this problem.  They barely speak about it, and when they do it is to reassure us that crime is in fact not that serious.  Responsibility falls on the community as a whole, but primarily on the parents.  This is everyone's problem, the wheels of Government will continue to turn regardless.

    I can't get the picture of the dude hiding in the bushes out of my head.  How many nights was he squatting in his bush/fort waiting for someone to walk by. It's a lonely life I'll bet.
