Correction of typo.

How about changing the law so that so decent citizen need NOT be afraid of prosecution if the defend themselves and the criminal gets injured or killed?

Hate to be negative here but I hope he will be allowed to do a better job than the previous veteran of Canada's waste management industry employed by DEH whose only apparent legacy was the Matrix scrap metal scandal.

Mr Schubert, your predecessor's efforts got buried in Cayman Islands politics - please don't let that happen to you.

Well said Lucia. In my opinion there are about 40-50 serious criminals in Grand Cayman.

It is this tiny number who are destroying our peace of mind and our economy.

As Michael Davis correctly said, if you take population differences into account we probably have a higher crime rate than Jamaica.

Meanwhile the police appear to be doing nothing.

How about a 100,000 Dollar reward for information leading to their conviction?

How about allowing responsible business owners and members of the public to shoot back?

How about changing the law so that so decent citizen needs be afraid of prosecution if the defend themselves and the criminal gets injured or killed?

When faced by a rabid dog, you don't try to reason with them. You put them down. And this is what we need to do.

It is not too late to take back our country.
Please come back, my peaceful home.

Are you kidding. What if people lie on the question of previous travel to West Africa. Of course they are going to lie. The U.S. has already been the recipient of this dreaded disease. What makes you think Cayman is immune. You need to have the technology and intell. to show where these travellers have been
previous to Cayman. Then you'll know.

Does sound like a good move to me, but I have to ask is this part of the solution that that Bodden said they already had during their Campaign. So let me see if I have this right, it takes a Steering committee and trip to the US to tour waste management facilities in order to hire someone to come in and do the job. Also, since he's now on the job is there still a need for the steering committee ?

Songs can help teach kids kindness and tolerance, which could help to combat bullying. Be a Buddy, not a Bully is a good song for kids on YouTube:

Missed this one last week - Can't believe the security guard gave her the gun back - Idiotic!

As John McEnroe used to say - YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!

These articles,statements and comments sound like a broken record. Meantime RCIPS listens(if) but then goes ahead and does its own thing, blithely ignoring it. Everybody knows,but nobody acts? May be someone should consult Dexter?You know, the guy who hunts criminals.

To correct Mr Moxam, This isn't becoming the new norm it is the new Norm and the powers that be have nothing to say because they have accept this as the way life is in Cayman now.

One other thing I am sick of is hearing the same statement about the crimes every time that no one was hurt. Well sorry but we are all being hurt by this.

It's time people realize that the old Cayman is gone and is not coming back. It's still beautiful but it no longer stands out from the other islands in the Caribbean. People were attracted to Cayman because of it's reputation for safely, Just read what's being said about it on Trip Advisor. It has great diving, but it doesn't have the Tropical ecology and natural attractions as a lot of other islands which are a lot cheaper to visit. So if people can't say Cayman is so much safer we are going to lose a of visitors. People like to say that crime in Cayman can't compare to places like St Lucia or Jamaica but we have to remember that Cayman is a fraction of the size of these islands so the rate per capita may actually be higher.
