Cayman should curb crime

I would really like to know what is going on with all these armed robberies.

I have been living in the US since Hurricane Ivan and every time I check your website there is an abundance of robberies.

I don’t want to sound like a bigot, but I have come to a conclusion that we have to do a better job of screening the individuals we let into the country.

We open our doors for people to come in to the Cayman Islands to find a job in order to make life easier for their family back home, but all they seem to do is milk our country for what it’s worth, bring their way of living, destroy ours and then leave.

Before I left the Cayman Islands I remember over hearing individuals from overseas saying negative things about the Cayman Islands.

I have but one thing to say to these people and that is, if you don’t have anything good to say about the place that has given you employment and a chance to make life financially easier for your family, then leave.

I do not agree with a lot of the foreign politics in the US, but I don’t have anything negative or bad to say, as they opened their doors and let me come in to start a new life and I am forever grateful for the opportunity.

As an aside, what’s up with pricing yourself out of the market?

I have met a lot of people who have been to the Cayman Islands while on a cruise ship and the first thing they say is that it is way too expensive.

I have also told all my friends that they should check out the Cayman Islands, but when they go online to research prices they change their minds and go to Mexico because it’s way too expensive.

What it cost just for accommodations at the hotels would cover the entire trip to Mexico or Jamaica. That includes food, entertainment, car rental and accommodations.

You’re pricing yourself right out of the market, and when all the tourist start going elsewhere what are you going to do?
