    Agreed @9.27 Mr. Bowen did the right thing and guess what happened after that; he had to move from Cayman as he was receiving threats from the punk’s family members. Imagine that! Mothers are the problem in these Cayman Islands, and grand-mothers. They raise these punks to believe they can do whatever, whenever to whomever. Couple that with no father figure in the home and what do you get? A decrepit. Now we have hundreds running around here robbing, abusing, and threatening innocent peoples’ lives. I say to all law abiding citizens GET YOUR GUN LICENCE NOW! Time for action in Cayman.

    Whatever happened to the three strikes and you are out proposed law?
    Lets see if I can give some additional input here : first burglary conviction mandatory 5 years in jail, 2nd conviction 10 years in jail, 3rd conviction 20 years in jail…
    That way even if someone who has already been convicted two times and is out of jail and does another burglary will still get the full 20 year sentence for the third conviction…

    Obviously this guy had assistance or at least a vehicle. You just don’t run down the street with a tv set. Hopefully, RCIPS can put these string of robberies together with all the CCTVs that should show vehicles entering & exiting those premises if in that area.

      Those CCTVs only catch duppies. Ask Mr. B and Mr. B to give us what we paid for, in order for us to catch the Raiders/Robbers.

      These C.I. Govt CCTV cameras that are hung up on utility poles that costed the taxpayers millions and millions of C.I. dollars, seems to be useless; since very few crimes are prevented or detected with this technology. I know CCTV is very successful in other jurisdictions but it does not appear to be the case in the Cayman Islands. I believe at the moment, we have more Thefts, Burglaries and Robberies in broad daylight hours than we do at night or even in the wee hours of the morning combined. These cameras must have came out of a “Crack A Jack Box” from somewhere in the Far East.

      After all, all you need to do is arrive on our shores (by whatever means) wearing a shiny full suit and a brief case in your hand, and say that you are an expert, consultant or is selling this or that. Our clowns you are in charge……. will then accept your words as Gospel, buy anything you have for sale or pay any amount of money you ask for, to produce a product that works terribly, or produce a folder of paper that is later filed away to catch dust or is filed away in FILE 13. This seems to be the norm in the Cayman Islands.

      The Auditor General needs to do an investigation on this particular contract to see if we got value for money on this CCTV camera technology. I certainly don’t believe we did and I have spoken with many others, including serving police officers who share this same view as well.

        The CCTV cameras’ evidence is exactly what was used to help capture and convict the robbers of the CNB on West Bay road. The police used the CCTV video to literally track the culprits right to one of their apartments – it was shown as evidence in court!

        CCTV doesn’t actively prevent crime. It allows police to attempt to trace the movements of criminals after a crime and then use it as evidence or if there is an active chase they can use the cameras to assist.

        I get the feeling that some people think someone at the police office is sitting and watching these cameras 24/7.

          You obviously don’t know much about CCTV as I have been in police stations throughout the UK and seen officers monitoring these cameras 24/7 – in a special room for this purpose.

          The same takes place at/near the 911 centre in Grand Cayman.

          The personnel who monitors these cameras may be proficient but the equipment is of poor quality. Why do you think the ankle bracelets are defeated so easily, by simply putting a piece of foil paper over them.

          They must have came from the same “Crack A Jack Box” as well.

        Well the same local company that got the cctv contract is the same one that got the contract for the ankle bracelets. If you trace the owners of the company you may find a conflict of interest there too!!!!!

          If you can’t adequately protect and secure a company from a well known insider who is now alleged to have stolen your eyes balls, your left hand, a right foot, a left ear and your lower right wisdom tooth; (over the past several years) then how the hell are you going to convince me to buy any product that will likely prevent Theft ?

          That’s like loaning Dracula to protect the blood bank at the George Town Hospital.

          I honestly believe if the Auditor General goes sniffing like a hound dog, he will pick up on a trail and will find some conflict of interest or other serious booga-a-loo business; in regards to security products provided in the Cayman Islands.

          He usually does…….. and I’m very sad to see him leave. I hope someone of his calibre will be replacing his position. God’s knows…….. we really need it here in the Cayman Islands, to watch government spending and the awarding of contracts and getting value for tax payers money etc….

      I am waiting on them to break into my grounds, two Rottweilers and a Rhodesian ridge back, especially when I am not there, then we will know who they are real fast, have had them sneaking around, but when they say and heard the hounds from hell, they moved on, and they are training the new recruit, a full breed Doberman, they are trained to defend us and the grounds, the best security possible, not even breeze passed though without being noticed

        I don’t have no dogs (wish I did) but I got an alarm system and if you are able to get pass this, then we as citizens of the Cayman Islands……. do have rights under common law. That is, to protect our family, our home and our properties from all imminent threats human or otherwise, by whatever means deemed necessary and appropriate, to neutralize such imminent threats.

        Our National Heroes I love them dearly (All of Them) but do you know who holds a Very Special Place In My Heart ??

        My Caymanian Hero – The elder Mr. Bowen.

        Go figure…….. what I will likely use to deal with marauding criminals who attempt to break into my home while I’m there.
