    Hopefuly with the UK now taking a tougher stance towards violence and criminals after the riots Mr. Baines may also find it acceptable to do the same. It's also interesting to note the UK Prime Minister publical acknowledges that there are perhaps other places to learn from to deal with certain aspects of fighting crime and willing to embrace their support, – again perhaps Mr. Baines might also do the same. .

    Our fearless Leader has never reconized crime as an issue in West Bay let alone Cayman as a whole. This shows what kind of leader he truly is. He doesn't care because it don't effect him.

    As was demonstrated this past week in England, RCIPS under the control of the English appointed commissioner have no idea of policing the society that now exists in Cayman.A new tactic & approach is needed.

      I agree, but i suspect that in the very near future British political correctness will return twice as strong and as stupid.

    Remember it snot only the politicians that build a nation , but most important what the people of that nation do to see what the root of the problem is and speak up for the weaker or less unfortunate ones. We all live on the same planet and Island.

    and the answer is to realize why there is over 3000 unemployed and applying to jobs everyday and no reply or no protection from the proper departments.This is partially the root of the problem. Nothing done , nothing gained.
