    What a surprise!  In a XXXX establishment, with sketchy patrons, at a sketchy time of the day…something bad happens!

    I do hope this thug…and every single person that saw something that isn't speaking up…is punished to full extend of the law!  No only is it the knuckle head that pulled a gun out, but everyone that is sitting back quietly hoping someone else will deal with it, guilty!  I appreciate that the police, political system and government haven not given us any hope of security, but we can't just let these punks with guns think that they can run around our island thinking they're gansters.  they're punks.  they're your or your neighbours kid…the same kid that washed your car last summer.  Cayman isn't so big that we should have this many misguided youths.  If it's your kid, have the b@ll$ to call them out and if necessary have them arrested.  Is it easy? NO.  Would you rather have to explain to your neighbour that your son shot his kid in the face?  NO

    It's called responsibility…Cayman can use a real dose of it!

      Smart police should've had the names of all the people who were present at the time of the incident.  Are they that smart?  Why wait weeks after to find/ or ask for people to come forward.  Your poor strategy doesn't work, deal with the facts on the spot.

    Police continued that the witnesses are likely to be badly dressed wannabee gangsters with terrible taste in music and women who are into men like that.
