  1. Commissioner of Police:

    Something has to be done with these hooligans, sir! Talk is cheap! Unarmed police officers are incapable of fully enforcing the Law! Unarmed good-standing civilians are exposed to many dangers! These hooligans are carrying and using firearms at their own disposal with no regard to property and life!

    Sir, something has to be done or someone INNOCENT will get shot!

  2. They won’t arm their police. They will just start ‘campaigns’. In other words, give it a fancy ‘operation’ name. Then arm the police with insults. And they will hurt the feelings of those toting guns. That should make them give up!

    Police work consists of waiting for the crime to happen. Not being able to do anything about a firearm crime while it’s happening. Then ask around the neighbourhood ‘who dun it’.

    All the while, telling the citizens that they really don’t need guns LOL

    Arm these stores with armed guards. Lets see how many friday night robberies their are then 8)

  3. Cayman is not the peaceful place it once was. You have murders, kidnappers, and you name it, its in Cayman. The government want it to appears safe to all the visitors, so they dont arm the police. but in broad day light shot has been fired at the Butterfield bank robbery. Just continue on the same path and watch Cayman turn into a war zone.Please make you prison a prison and not a vacation detination
