  1. There is nothing wrong when criminals are the ones who getting hurt in this kind of confrontations because that’s what they have chosen to do with their lives. However, it is so sad to see innocent people getting hurt in this kind of actions. We as human being have the right to choose whether we want to do bad or good yes, but please don’t take the peace from those who have nothing to do with this war. God Bless

  2. In regards to the stabbing that took place Friday, it is so poor that a person has gone to someone residence assault him with a machete and attempt to take away his life. This man was in his home where small children where and do this horrific act causing the man to have surgery and it is a high possibility that he might have a permanent disability or limited use to his arm.

    The man that did the assault was only questioned and released before the victim was even in surgery. Where is the justice in these island? the police haven’t even asses the situation to see if there is any further threats to the victims life, what about a police detail at the hospital knowing that the man is hospitalized and have no way of defending his self.

    What a slack system we have in these islands! I bet if it was a drug possession charge, the man would have been charged and remanded. I don’t understand how in the world this man made an attempt on taking another human life and within minutes he could be back on the streets to finish what he started, harm someone else or even flea the island until the stature of limitation is up and then be able to return to the country. what are the police doing?

  3. I have visited Grand Cayman many, many times …and considered it to be my dream to live there one day. It is very, very sad for me to hear what is happening to this beautiful, peaceful island. The people were always some of the nicest anywhere in the world and the island was one of the safest in the carribean… I used to walk anywhere at night and feel safe while I was in Cayman.
    It sounds like maybe isn’t the place I used to know now. I’m sure this will affect tourism. How terribly sad this is.
