Good crime message sent

I am glad to see that a renewed message by the courts is being sent to burglars.

I personally and other family members have been victims of burglary.

The after affects of a burglary are not only the loss of personal property but also the psychological trauma of invasion and feeling vulnerable.

I do not think that the latter is adequately reflected in the sentencing of burglars.

Every person living in the Cayman Islands has a right to the security of their home and their safety.

I hope that this is a step forward to sending the strong and unequivocal message; that crimes against people and their property are not tolerated.
