    Police are investigating….. Meaning they took notes and that's the end of the matter.

    It is a known fact that just behind the corner is one of the illegal lottery sites.  The numbers is being played there 3 times per day.  The attempted robbery story should be taken with a grain of salt. The illegal numbers games attract a lot of anti social activities and this is another area that the police should have a strong presence but then again who would you send the same police that hang out in the area and buy numbers give free pass to their friends when they see them smoking weed.  No, no this islands need new recruits, preferable 50% European and the other 50% a combination of Caymanians and others from the Eastern Caribbean (traditional recruitment areas in the 1970s).
