    This is only a tip on the iceberg of things to come.  People are depressed, Caymanians cant get work, so what you think is going to happen.  Those persons who have been keeping Caymanians from getting a job, whether it be another Caymanian or an expatriate, you will definately see  crime on the increase.  If a man cannot find food to put on his table and feed his children, what you think will happen.  He is going to blame some one, and I am sure it will be someone who have it..  Think about what is to come.
