    Such a shame but there are lots of illegal gambling around that area and to the rear of the establishment.  Welly's use to be a really cool spot but now it has changed.

    Black pants, green shirt, and spoke with a Jamaican accent. If his mask was gold coloured I would suspect that he might be of Jamaican heritage.

    Domestic terrorist. Mandatory 25 years. End of problem.

    And for heaven sake ARM the RCIPS. Train and equip them properly to fight armed criminals.

    Shut this crime wave down now. We cannot afford to let it go on for one more day.

    Pretending that violent crime is not happening and hoping it will stop is not a solution.

      I'm truly starting to wonder if many of these robberies are set up internally.

        Why  dont the government listen to suggestions from the public? The only time they pretend to listen, is when they come begging for your x,  to give them a job, for making laws of our country. 

        I will say this again, reduce  the police force by 50%, use the 25 million dollars to hire professional crime fighters, from a country where they are proactive in fighting crime.

        We need a private security company that can smell crime a mile away, not neighborhood watch officers, that reacts after the crime happens.

        Hire them on a six months contract, no liabilities tied to our government funds. This would elemate the existing officers  staying  here for 9 years warming their seat, waiting for PR.

        I guarntee these guys would clean up our streets within their 6 months contract.
