    Cayman these so call crime experts imported and local just don’t get it. To you  blogger’s don’t waste your time making outrageous statements as it tends to drive our foreign police service further in the corner and ferment this we and them mentality. Which was created and promoted by our local immoral and corrupt instigators to propel them to the higher ranks. A goal they have achieve to the detriment of some very good officers of the RCIPS. A comprehensive long term crime strategy needs to be implement and not the current one written by the Rich to carry out their agenda which is to jail everybody and make them feel safe. These two victims like all the other victims have witnessed the shortcomings of RCIP’s inaction and subsequent investigations and or lack thereof. This was all in hand a short time back however it appear that someone or persons in power had to reinvent the wheels of policing in the Cayman Islands at our unfortunate expense in Cost$$$ and innocent lives being loss. To police any amount of people or persons you have to have the moral authority to do so first and that is seriously lacking with "some" of the current leadership. Mr. Baines is trying and needs your support in his efforts, Because he is not from here and is paid to do a job doesn’t mean he has care about Cayman and many of his predecessors didn’t. He has shown a keen interest in doing something for Caymanin the long term and we should not let this opportunity pass us by without at least trying to get it right, its our future not his at stake. If i did not think he was worth it would mention it, put a side some of these obviously serious grievances for Cayman not the RCIPS.

    Are Premier is hardly ever on the island – the world is such a big place and there are so many lovely places to see. It is simply unfair for anyone to expect that our politicians would find time to pass legislation dealing with violent crime when first class travel is such an attractive alternative.

    This do nothing government is a sick joke.

        The word is presence not presents.

        These are Homophones which are words that sound the same but mean something different.

          Why capitalise "Homophone"?  This is not German we are typing.  If random nouns you capitalise want, then German sentence structures adopt you should.

    It was only a matter of time before this happened. For too long there has been a "blind eye" turned to the depressed communities right in the middle of George Town. Drug deals, prostitution and illegal weapons are part of daily life on Bodden Road, Cruz Lane, Diaz Lane and School House Road.

    Pity it took this sort of thing to get the attention of the authorities.
