    You are mistaken.  They have not been removed from society.  I dont think you get the reference to "hotel Northward". That is exactly what it is! Seriously!  The criminals get to play in sporting leagues around the island with regular everyday folk with very limited supervision and they get let out to go an visit family and girlfriends.  I am not joking!  Its amazing.  I want to get into Northward too.

    This will continue, no doubt, until the Police can catch these idiots and manage to get a few successful prosecutions through the Legal Department and the rest of us can become a bit more responsible.

    I think it behooves persons in this society, especially those working in the media, to do our part in keeping this society safe by thinking about our actions and possible repercusions. I was amazed to hear the appearance of convicted criminals, currently incarcarated mind you, recently calling in and engaging in conversations on Cayman Cross Talk on Rooster Radio. Even worse to hear some individuals later call in to heap praises on them and seeming to suggest that the police should take advice from them!

    It is my understanding that the criminals were called out when some irresponsible person commented and called a known criminal’s name on the show, immediately after which the said individual called and was allowed approximately 30 minutes of air time! I was dumbstruck to say the least and wonder exactly what the hosts were trying to achieve.

    This morning a rival, now also incarcarated, called in but was cut short, be it accidentally or a fault of the phone service, nevertheless he will not be seen as receiving the same "favour" of time allowed the other one and no doubt some sort of perception will exist, which could cause further problems. 

    Responsible reporting should always be exercised and this type of situation should not have been allowed to occur in the first place. These criminals have been removed from society by our courts and they should stay there, not be given centre stage on the airwaves. Or ist it that we are now resorting to glorifying our criminals? If this is the case then then rest of us deserve an official announcement please.
