“These incidents of violence will be thoroughly investigated by the RCIPS and the offenders will be sought out and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. While we continuously strive to investigate these incidents, I would also like toencourage anyone who witnessed them or has any information about these horrific attacks to come forward in confidence and assist us with our inquiries,” the senior cop added.

The first incident occurred at around 2:31 Saturday morning around an after-hours session on Shedden Road in George Town. Police received a reported that a fight was in progress between a group of males at that location. One of the males received a laceration to his face while another male received a wound to the face along with a swollen eye. Both were treated for their injuries and released from the George Town Hospital.

The second incident happened on the West Bay Road close to Dream Night Club at about 3.07am when the 911 communications centre received a report that two men armed with machetes were chasing another man along the road.

Police said the victim received a number of very serious but none life threatening wounds to his head and neck. Armed police officers were dispatched to the scene, but upon their arrival all parties had departed the area.

    There are a few incompetent police officers from a neighbouring jurisdiction that is making a real mess of the police service in these islands.  These people are in desperate need of proper training in policing and should not be allowed to police even the animal shelter, they have absolutely no customer service skills and the RCIPS should do us all a favour by replacing them with officers of higher calibre and standards, we need to do more recruitement drives from the traditional places where our officers came from in the 60s, 70s and 80s.  When we had much better skilled and educated officers who displayed and demostrated bettr qualities that what I see today, no offense but I would go a long way in the public having to deal with officers who are knowledgeable and not borderline.

    And what good are the security guards at these establishments?  They stand by looking on as if it's not part of their job to protect the patrons.  The entire system needs a complete overhaul.  Are we supposed to stay at home because the people that are sworn to protect and to serve are instead not making their presence known at these clubs/bars because they are too busy chasing after some kids suspected of smoking marijuana?  You know it ain't those kids causing trouble because after they consume this "terrible" drug they don't even have the ambition to lift a hand to help themselves much less hurt anyone.  Ah boy, the priorties in this country are out the window.  Where are the authorities when these incidents occur?  And don't tell me that you don't have enough police officers!  Lord have mercy!  What is government trying to prove with purchasing these CI$48,000 vehicles for the cops to drive around in?  And then the poor woman who just needs 2 more weeks to payday to re-insure and license her vehicle gets pulled over on her way to or from work and charged a hefty fine for not havingher documents in order.  I'm not saying the authorities should overlook the laws I'm just saying what are you telling the public when they see these expensive vehicles on the road and they can hardly make ends meet?  Then they take the houses from the less fortunate while talking about the houses not being up to code.  Do these authorative figures even drive into the side roads on this island and see the delapidated dwellings some people live in?  Then they talk about how to fix the violence in schools.  Hell, most of the kids that cause trouble go to school without breakfast, have no lunch money and are not even sure if they'll come home to supper because their parents are finding it hard to make ends meet.  They authorities need to fast for a couple of days and feel what it's like to be hungry angry or just sick and tired like most of the people here are.  Then they talk about how deep in debt the island is becoming.  I think I have touched on a few subjects and hope that somebody will look into the important things that should take top priorty in this country.  It is hurtful to know that the people that should be helping are living in the gold lined dome and can't see the forest for the trees.  I have so much to say but know it will be ignored anyway. Living in fear of tomorrows news headlines!
