    Sad to say, but more often than not they are home grown. Maybe, rather than blaming our internal problems on external forces, we take a minute to reflect on what we can improve. I deal woth many young people, most of whom are full of promise. But, sadly, most are lacking in basic acedemic skills that would greatly assist them in their future employment prospects.

    We the people of these Cayman Islands demand to know the nationalty of these thugs andhave them and their  families  deported. This is what you get when you have idiot  politicians handing out Cayman status for political  gain. Now the Islands have gone to Sh**.

      If they are native Caymanians , as many of the criminals are , where would you like them to be deported to ?  The best thing would be if they are caught and regardless of nationality convicted and serve their sentence in prison which hopefully will get stricter than it currently is.

      To add to my previous comment, why would their families need to be deported  ?  You cannot hold all responsible for what one does.

      Why is it that we automatically assume it has to be some foreign nationals commiting these crimes?  We seem to have forgotten that we do in fact have some home made punks who are just lazy and worthless who just want to hang around all day, smoking whatever it is they are smoking, with an afro pick sticking out from the top or the side of their hair, pants which are abviously too big and too long, sagging and showing more than half of their colorful underwear, sporting the latest name brand shoes, latest model Iphones, jewellry and walking around with a beer bottle or a cup of liquid courage.  Whilst I can agree that most parents of today work (unlike back in the day when the wives stayed home), I think it is us who created these ungrateful, ambitionless evil monsters because we wanted for them what we didn't have growing up so we spoil them with material things and now they are on a quest to continue getting those material things even if it means hurting or potentially killing someone to get it – what a shame, what a shame.

      What if the person turns out to be of Cayman or British nationality?  We then deport them to the Sister Islands

      Given they have not caught them, finding out their nationality would be a trifle difficult!

      If, however, you are right in your swingeing assumption that the mugger is the recipient of a status grant or a family member who is now Caymanian as well , then the answer to your question would be that they are a Caymanian – whether they should have got status or not is a different question, but status holders – good and bad – are Caymanian now.  If they are an expat, no problem, convict them and deport them at the end of their sentence.     If they are Caymanian, born or paper, we have to find a way to deal with them here.

        FYI Quoted hereunder is Section 28 of Immigration Law (2011 Revision) – Section 27. also interesting and informative reading]                                                                                                           Revocation on conviction

        28. Where the grantee of the right to be Caymanian or of Caymanian status under this or any earlier law is convicted by any court of an offence-

             (a) for which he is sentenced to an immediate term of imprisonment of twelve months or more, other than for non-payment of a fine; and in respect of which conviction his rights of appeal have been exhausted; or

             (b) which, in the opinion of the grantor, was made possible by, facilitated by or connected with the grant,

          REVOCATION OF GRANT OF CAYMANIAN STATUS :   oops! somehow the most important last line of Section 28 was omitted from the above quote from the Immigration Law – so here it is –  "…   the grantor may revoke the grant on his own motion. "  

          [Logically, the "grantor" would be the Government Board / the Cabinet whichever one approved the grant of Caymanian Status to the particular person / "grantee" ]
