  1. When is cayman going to get serious about crime? Few years back New york had a huge crime problem for years the police could not control. Then Mayor Rudy Giuliani was elected on an anti crime campaingn. and the first year in office we had a major decrease in all crime.the people of caymon should demand the police think outside the box and look at how this was done in New York.


    This is shockingly sad-the island needs to round these hoodlums up and if they are expats get them off your island and even sadder, if they are Caymanians send them off to jail and reclaim your island-before it is too late.
