Ming’s killers remain at large as cops step up enquiry

| 04/05/2010

(CNS): Despite a number of successes for the RCIPS in detecting crimes associated with the recent gang violence, detectives working on the murder of Damion Ming have yet to charge his killer or killers. Ming was killed on 25 March, and although two men were arrested soon after, the crime they have since been released without charge. Police say they are now intensifying efforts to get new information and spent two hours last Thursday night carrying out a road check near the murder scene on Birch Tree Hill Road.  Almost 100 vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians were stopped and asked if they had any information. 

According to reports by News 27, Detective Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay said this was the second police public enquiry since the shooting and the public’s help in this investigation was essential. He said those who were stopped were co-operative, and the team is now examining the information it received. Anyone who hasn’t spoken to police can come forward in confidence, either directly to the West Bay Police Station, or using the anonymous tips line on 800 TIPS.
Ming was killed on the eve of what should have been his return to jail after his bail had been revoked following the failure of his Privy Council appeal on a drug conviction.

    YOU know what maybe you are right!!!! Maybe i should join the RCIP again…lol  I wouldnt be talking if it wasnt from experience or know of people who was in it for years that "KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING". And when myself and the ex officers were there, West Bay was not the way it is now, back in the days…..and im sure you can second that if you live in the area….. so like i said before it doesnt take a rocket scientist to get the job done.  It takes intelligent and hard working people who are willing to work and not just recieve Governments money for doing nothing but setting up road blocks and issuing tickets, when there are bigger issues out there.  But dont get me wrong alot of it has to do with the Government too because they do not train fficers like the use to, when they use to send people to for schooling in psycology and so on.  But the point remains when you sit and say oh if it was so easy why dont you do so and so, put yourself in his familys shoes i am sure f it was you or your family member you would want justice to be served IMMEDIATELY…..So lets sit and think realistically for a minute.  Fingers have to be pointed at the RCIP because it is something they are not doing, because too many crimes have gone unsolved in Cayman for such a small island.

    Cayman is a very small island, with very little place to hide so there should be no reason at all why the RCIP can not find these criminals, if they are working diligently enough.  For them not even to have a clue or one key person in custody, i think that is ridiculous.  In the US there are alot of murders that go unsolved, but many of them are solved within the week of the murder.  So come on RCIP you dont need a rocket scientist for the job to get done.  Cayman is not a huge place so stop slacking and get the job done.

       If it’s so easy why don’t you join them and round-up all the criminals? It’s easy to talk the way you do when you’re on the sidelines of the fight…

    The real question is why are they taking so long to formally charge the suspect(s)?

    Justice should be served for every individual it doesn’t matter who you are or who you know every individual is the same we are all humans and no one not even a worst enemy deserves to be unsolved especially when it’s a cruel crime such as murder he is still a mother’s child and a father him self and  I’m sure his  mother and child would gladly appreciate if no more than justice is served even though it won’t bring back their lost.

    People of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands crimeisn’t the way to solve your problems with other people who you may not be getting along with …talking it over can help dissolving the issue.

    I’m hoping all those murderers are caught and prosecuted.

    Because I’m honestly tired of all these crimes taking place on my homeland.

      Those who live a criminal life take the risk of this happening to them.  This investigation should not divert resources from protecting the good people of these islands.

        That statement is true, but who are you to judge?  we are all human and no one deserves to die like that.  IIt is so easy for us to judge and dislike a person based on what we hear about them.  Yo are just as bad as the criminals when you sit and make staements like that, but god dont like ugly whats is good for the goose is also good for the gander.

     Better for them to intensify then to slack off though don’t you think? Honestly guys, I know they’re not all that they’re supposed to be but we really need to be more supportive of them. I’m just saying…

    That is the way the police force on this island works. They feel as if they are doing work when everyone knows that the criminals that committed this crime is long gone from the area. As if being in the area after the fact really helps.

    Why wait more than a month to intensify their efforts.  Seems a little late to me.
