    We know where this rock and smash is coming from. Government and business people should have listened they were warned about this from late 1980. As usual they buried their heads in the sand and wish that the problems would go away. Will not say that the person involved is not Caymanian but when we were warned that if left unchecked the rock smashing incidents would become prevalent in society later on. We didn’t start the fire but we didn’t try to fight it either.

      I think you make a good point.  It is shocking that successive governments have done nothing about the freely available rocks in and around Georgetown.  I hear that some of them are imported rocks too, brought in by the tide, and taking the place of indigenous rocks that are otherwise passed over and not used in break-ins.  I propose a march.

      I wish this stupid law about releasing people on bail would be changed!  Otherwise they just let them right out again after they are caught.

    I long for the old days when the local crime report would include such items as "A house in West Bay was burgled, nothing was taken but cake was eaten"  Of course there was also the famous West Bay cow incident in the winter 1999.
