    Congratulations Austin, the man made a mistake and paid the price in the court of
    Public opinion and the court of law , if anyone on this post hasn’t made a mistake or
    mistakes that’s great give the man a chance to prove himself before we cut him down
    for a slip he made in the past , I’m glad to see his constituents gave him a chance it’s not ok to do wrong things but we all deserve a chance when it falls on us.

    Sad day for all the mothers daughters and sisters of Cayman.
    Huge step back for the women of our islands.

    LOL, must better to have a woman beater than a person who cheats on his wife. Oh sh… It’s our culture to beat women, so he’s our pick!

    I wonder what else he won’t remember because he was drunk over the next 4 years. Lord have mercy!

    We would hope Austin would use his moment of redemption to advocate strongly for human, civil, and gender rights. Let’s head off some lawsuits before those winning claims are filed.
