    These idiots who think it's ok to rob people and intimidate them with machetes/guns need a taste of their own medicine. They are cowards! Get a life and work like everyone else who makes an honest living in these islands. We're not allowed to have mace/guns/machetes to defend ourselves as law abiding citizens. However, the criminals always same to have more rights than the victims. 

    RCIPS you need to walk the streets at night in plain clothing and just wait for them to pounce  and when they do, the task force come out like worms from the woodwork and catch these low lives. The more they get away with, the more power is gained in their tiny little brains to do it again and again.

    Why are the police wasting time protecting the criminals from each other in West Bay and East End, and not protecting those on the SMB corridor?

      We believe that the police should be in all districts, but, this one really is bothersome to us as tourists who stay at either the Comfort Suites or Marriott when we visit Cayman islands. These are our hotels. We know the workers, the restaurants nearby, it is comfortable, peaceful. This is where we are strolling  to dinner each night and have always felt safe. Our safety has never been a concern on our walks to and from the restaurants. This is terrible. Such a shame.

    Not good! Right across from 2 major hotels, a couple main restaurants and bars and an area where tourists and locals walk usually feeling secure. Not good for tourism at all.

    The police need to better patrol WB road to ensure the safety of our Tourist.   I wish the tourist was able to put a proper beating on the good for nothing creep and let us all see who the pice of crap is.

      This type of crime will continue to happen because the police spend more time on traffic violation s and not enough time making patrols to root out these criminals. But what is ironic is that the RCIPS has removed the traffic wing of the department, but yet you see more cops doing checks for expired coupons and such. And to top it all off I live in West Bay and a police officer lives next door to me and when he is on duty I think he spends more time at home than doing any patrols, on one occasion I witness the patrol car parked outside his house for over two hours, so I really don't expect to see or hear about any deterrence of this type of criminal behavior  any time soos.

        Yup, 6:08. The world is full of "traffic" cops today who can barely read or write. We are in a police state now. Criminals seem to have more rights than us. VERY STRANGE.

        Until we clean up our streets we are doomed.  Being tough on crime needs a real LEADER in the Police?  Get out there, pick up the thugs…. my grandparents are rolling over in their graves and my grandchildren are joining gangs.  Fix unemployment and education please.
