    Nuff said please watch…

     

     

     

     I had a conversation with a man one day and the man said to me.

     

    "listen, what are you going to do, if someday, someone or some group of individuals breaks into your home or business to rape your wife and daughter, or rob you, or murder your family. What are you going to do? Call the police…? What can the police do for you DURING the event?"

     

    Listen Cayman things are not what they use to be the criminals are criminals because they don't care please understand. WE as a society KEEP trying to PLAY fair in a unfair fight and will not win. These guys/girls don't respect anyone or understand anything.

     

    In recent events the majority of the robbers that have occurred were armed robbers thankfully no one was hurt. The government is in the process of allowing people to carry pepper spray but honestly have you ever heard the saying 'to bring a knife to a gun fight'. Hence my saying the public of the cayman islands is in an unfair fight.

     

    The police can not be around all the time to protect everyone they are not God. Nor do I expect them too, I expect to be allowed if I chose to, have a PROPER fighting chance. If that means I have to be a member of the gun club or pay fees for ownership or attend regular visits by the RCIP to ensure proper storage and usage then SO BE IT… government should embrace that as additional revenue.

     

    Push come to shove I will have to take the 10 years cost… 🙁 to protect anyone of my family members life or my own. It is unfair to know that any one of them or I would have to lose life to a criminal, a nobody, a nothing; because they could not defend their life BY LAW.  

     

    But Cayman ask the right question…?

     

    Are politician allowed to be licensed firearm owners/ are some politicians currently licensed firearm owners?

     

    YES

     

    'Technically every Caymanian is ENTITLED to be a licensed firearm owner…'

     

    But if we look at the red tape involved in the process which makes it purposefully impossible to become a license firearm owner for the general public, there does not seem to be the same level of hiccups or road bumps experience by the politicians.

     

    Are politicians more deserving of their life over yours?

     

    Firearms are ONLY LICENSED to Farmers and for “SPORT shooting” (loophole in the system) then which politician are farmers?

     

    When was the last time you saw or heard of them by the shooting range or being a member of the shooting club…? so what would be the reason for the gun if not SELF PROTECTION…?

     

    Do some political leaders have armed body guards ?

     

    YES

    AKA Armed RCIP officers

     

    Political leaders of the past may have had escorts on official travel overseas but carried around in Cayman with armed body guards?

    This is called a non-verbal message/queue which is an indication of the times that we are in.

     

    Do all of the RCIP officers carry guns

     

    NO 

     

    Take note of the officers escorting the policitians…!

     

    Then the obvious question is…? Why the exclusivity? Is their life or well being worth more then yours…?

     

    You can fool some people sometimes but you can’t fool all the people all the time…

    the pizza companies should not deliver to the prospect area until the 'communities' of that area give over the information to the police…….

    You reap what you sow in this life!! Keep painting Caymanians with the same brush and dont give us a chance to get employed and you can kiss kitty goodbye! …and its our own Caymanians to blame just to save a few dollars. When all the foreigners start leaving or stop coming to get employment its you that will be left here….remember dat!

    Another incident to clearly indicate that the Commissioner of Police (CoP) is not performing as expected. Therefore the Governor must terminate the CoP’s contract posthaste. However, it appears by all accounts that we as residents of these islands are simply going to wait until one of us are brutally and senselessly murdered by these malicious thugs, before we get-up and say enough is enough and demand that the current CoP be terminated without delay?!

     

    Your personal knowledge, and the record (various Media outlet reports, etc. not the skewed Crime Report compiled by the CoP) are the true bearers of facts that heinous and violent crimes have increased under this CoP’s watch. Framed by consistent dismissals of such cases in Courts of Judge alone trials because of poor policing i.e. evidence collection etc.  

     

    No matter what kind of legislation is put in place, without proper implementation and overall keen ability and knowledge of Policing (to keep watch, control, regulate, patrol, supervise) of the CoP, violent, terrorizing crimes like this will continue to increase.

     

    If one would simply take the time to peruse/scrutinize these new “legislative measures” the CoP claims will assist him in his duties, they will be alarmed that they infringe on your personal liberties. Consequently, an innocent individual like you or I could easily be caught-up in this Police State system that this CoP has pushed for. You will note and be alarmed that henceforth the burden of proof is not on the Police to show your guilt, but for you to prove otherwise. How many of the ordinary residents of these islands can afford a $1,000 an hour QC to defend your innocence?!

     

    In a nutshell, we as a territory have regressed in terms of Humans Rights all because of a CoP who cannot think outside the narrow little box he was trained to operate in.

     

    As General John Stark of the American Revolutionary War wrote back on 31st day of July 1809; “Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils.”

      I pray that this person is never allowed near a gun.

      Anita Justice, how right you are! David Baine's psychic police division should have forseen this Pizza attack, and had assets in place to intercept and neutralize these thugs. As for your alleged infringements of civil liberties, not a day goes by when I don't quake with fear at the possibility of someone planting a Glock in my car's glove box, and suddenly, to avoid 10 years mandatory, I have to prove I'm innocent.  How the hell would I do that? With my criminal history of one speeding ticket and a seven parking fines I'd be doomed. You've helped me make up my mind!  I'm moving to Honduras, where the murder rate is a mere 83 per 100,000. I  know I'd feel safe there!

        Hey Sarcastic Sam (18:53) as the old adages goes “S@#t happens when you least expect it and absolute power, corrupts absolutely” Anita Justice is not far off base. I think it is hard to dispute the fact that almost all persons arrested for major crimes in the last two or so years have been released primarily because of poor police work. Thank goodness for Judge alone trials. Try talking your way out of a Jury trial that typically do not operate on the basis of Law but emotions. Recent ruling in an Appeal victory overturning a conviction for murder cited this a contributing factor to the decision.

         

        Your comish has CI $30 million plus annually and close to 400 officers under contract. What is the consistent complaint from most residents? Where are the frequent patrols?! I bet you see more often two jokers in uniform sitting in an air conditioned patrol car with A/C blasting on the side of the road for hours with radar gun in hand?  I will only be too happy to defend you when someone with malicious intent “plants” or simply throws an illegal weapon in or about your property. Fee CI $550 per hour plus retainer and expenses. Please remember my number and call me 1-555-HELP 4 ME!

      Great job trying to blame those who actually stand between you and crime.  What role if any do you think the ones commiting the crimes have in this?  How about a society that raises, feeds and hides these degenerates?  Any thoughts about a people who consistently empower incompetent loudmouths to keep them working at the expense of their country?  No need to answer and I don't expect  one.  That would be like asking Bush "where ae you going?"

        Hey Bobo, TeeDee or whatever you is, I take it you didn’t read your post before sending it. How ironic in less than six short lines you contradicted yourself, maligned an entire people and call for the very thing you are bitching about! Next time maybe you could try removing the bigoted bias from your reasoning before making a fool out of yourself.

    Well these yobs should be easy enough to locate as they are either attached to the home delivery of the pizza or live close by. The people in the house who ordered the pizza should be supporting witnesses to the driver.

    The parents of these yobs should be ashamed.

      This doesn't sound like a Pizza story to me, it smells like Fish, as in very fishy. Something here just does not add up, very fishy!

    Doubtful the people who did this drove of in cars. They most likley were still in walking distance from where this happened. The police should have gone house to house looking for these bastards.

      Which beautiful island?  This happened on Grand Cayman.

      Every day there is crime in the news. Might as well stay in the US, at least you have a CCW.

      They will blame everyone but themselves, and there are never any witnesses. Sound familiar?

  8. chris says:

    This robbery is a particularly hard slap in the face to our police and judiciary.

    No one can claim that this crime was committed for the big pay day or the pizza.

    Pizza delivery men are random so this is not a targeted attack as no one knew who would deliver the pizza.

    Nor can we claim its gang tit for tat shooting or a Cayman love triangle/a crime of passion.

    This crime must have been committed for some other reason such as gang initiation or as a signal to the police to show "we know you cant catch us, we can do as we wish and get away with it"

    RCIP you have to catch these guys and ensure they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Politicians you need to pass stronger laws.

    We as the public need to have zero tolerance for this foolishness and report what we know before it destroys our society completely.

    Crime must be expensive for the criminals; there must be a better success rate of catching these criminals and there must be penalties that make them think once and realise right away that it is not worth the risk.

    Burgler bars and razor wire.

     

    Wewill soon look and feel like Trinidad.

     

    So much for our tourism product of sand, sea, sunsets, and safety.

     

    Safety will soon only be found within the razored wired walls of all inclusive resorts. Sad when you think about what is being lost.

    The problem is that people overseas read these comments and are completely put off taking a trip to Cayman!  When will these young juveniles realise that they are ruining their country?  When it is too late!

      That's the typical, stereo type attitudes that most caymanians need to change.  If you're going to have crime fighting resolve in Cayman, you've got to realize criminals live in close proximity to you regardless of where you live on this island.

      The majority of crimes i've seen in the last few weeks all happened in the town area.  Until a lot of these stereo-typical readers realize that these criminals could be in your own community, nothing will change.

    Are we living in a civilzed Cayman?  Am I dreaming?  Who in our society reared such a bunch of savages?  They are worse than wild animals.  This stinking thing has got to stop.  I feel for the police, who collect the evidence available to them to present to the court and are criticised daily for not getting more.  Where do we want them to get it from?  I am happy that at least you never hear that they manufactured evidence, or planted evidence to gain a conviction, but the courts seem to want proof beyond all doubt rather than proof beyond reasonable doubt.  It's time the justice system got a revamp.  How can a man take a life and lawyers get up and chat crap that it is cruel and inhumane punishment for them to receive life imprisonment rather than 20 years.  If every human being has a right to life and someone takes that life by murdering them, then until the day they can return life to the person they deprived of it, they should spend the rest of theirs in prison.  We need a leader with vision, intelligence, integrity, determination and ability to turn this place around and I hope next electionthat we get some of those people running; people like Wayne Panton, Andrew Reid, Carla Reid, Carlyle McLaughlin, Dan Scott, Jude Scott, Alden McLaughlin, Arden McLean, Ezzard Miller, Julene Banks, Wade DaCosta, and Sharon Roulstone.  We don't need ignorance and bullies.  We need vision and direction. We need educated debates and sound decisions.  We need the implementation of appropriate solutions to deal with juvenile delinquency from kindergarten age so that we rear more productive citizens and less criminals.  And I hope that the electorate have had enough of this present style of government to purge the country of them for good.  Those who offer gifts for power do not mean this country any good, so next election, if anyone does so, you know that is who you do should not vote for.  This place is not the peaceful and loving place I grew up in and I am so saddened by what I see happening now.  I want my good old Cayman back!

      I agree with some of what you have to say. I can assure you though that you don't have a clue about what the police do with 'evidence'. Thank God we don't have Judges with your thinking. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt is needed, He say and she say can't secure a conviction. A lot of the times the 'evidence' the police present is the reason people get off.
