    I rarely visit CNS website anymore, but did so today to see if anything has changed for the better in your once great country. Sadly, it hasn't, and the news stories are no different from those in any major US city, or elsewhere in the world for that matter. It's easy to see what the problem is.

    People, STOP Carrying CASH!! Get a debit card, checking account or something!!! Women, STOP carrying your handbag out and about like we live in a place with no crime. Time to be smart and take action. If we do this, less for the robber and theif to make victims of us!!

  4. more information please says:

    Was this a local woman who people knew would have the money?  Was this a visitor to the Island?  Those of us that visit would like to know, as well as those that live here.  Each and every day I am reconsidering my holiday to Grand Cayman.  Every day there is another robbery, maiming, etc.  The beautiful Island is becoming ugly.  Please give more information with details.

            It doesn't make it "all better" but obviously it makes a difference. Have you considered why the question was asked in the first case? The point is that the victim was targeted by someone who had information that she would be carrying a large amount of cash.

      Yes, local woman and someone must have known she had the money. This was not random.

    This one should be easy. Look at those who knew about her carrying cash
