  1. It seems that the source of criminal activity in Cayman is the gang culture. Gang activity is a cancer in any society. If law enforcement can effectively reduce their activity and eventually wipe them out completely, I believe there will be a noticeable drop in crime. These thugs neither fear God nor regard man; needless to say law enforcement. Unfortunately, membership seems to appeal to the vulnerable young men who have no ambition to better position in life. Much violence ensues from territorial control where murder is not uncommon. The USA is not exempt from this type of activity, which poses an ongoing problem for both law-biding citizens and law enforcement alike. It is noteworthy that efforts are being made to address the issue. Anyone having information on gang activity should report to the police, with the guarantee of anonymity. No doubt this will assist the police in their investigations.
