    “Christmas choppers”

    Santa should never have given them dominoes and a bottle of Wray and Nephew this kind of thing always happens when you mix the two.!!!

    So, what now? Draft legislation to remove machettes from the hands of everybody because a few hardcore folk use them as a weapon? No. This is why the law-abiding citizens can’t have firearms; not because they abuse them, but because the inanimate object is always demonized, rather than the twisted thinking of the perp.

      If you check the criminal law there already are (and have been for years!) restrictions on carrying machetes but like the gun laws nobody bothers about it.

    I love seeng these comments from our Christian natives on the most holy of seasons. It shows how completely false they really are! Everyone is to blame, but their own, what a shock when they find out they are Caymanian.

      I understand your point, racist as hell, but a point nevertheless, white people don’t get involved on this kind of crime, only financial and drug consumption,you are right. Weirdly enough there are no Asians involved in crimes, at all, here in Cayman…. I guess they are waaaay better….

      This is where you’re wrong. The Brits commit crimes like stealing from the hundreds of thousand from old people’s homes and get away with it! Which is worse? Criminals going to hell either way.

    I say it repeatedly. Since 2010 Cayman has seen a significant change for the worse.

    Another Jamaican paradise during the holidays with my bass pounding neighbor coming home drunk and violent at 2am to remind my scarred children on christmas eve that we all need to respect and preserve the true cayman identity.

    • anonymous says:

      why the Jamaican reference, i don’t quite get it.

      • Anonymous says:

        I believe it’s a reference to the Jamaican penchant for playing music at a volume where people five miles away can hear.

          And Caymanians don’t do that bobo at 9:51? You need to come by my place in Bodden Town. Assholes who (regularly) light fires illegally burning bush (a Caymanian policeman) and those who ride wheelies up and down the road on motorbikes (past the Caymanian policeman’s house but without any interruption from him) at idiotic speeds. 100% Caymanians-every damn last one of them-.and don’t dare talk to them about it….

        My guess, it was never like this before they came here in droves, Cayman was a peaceful society..respectful of our christian that has been poison by the aggressive culture imported…you cant lie about this!

      I do like a portion of Caymankind racism with my figgy pudding.

        Call it racism or what ever makes you feel good..its not going to take away from the facts that you all brought nasty culture here. One cant make this up!

        • Anonymous says:

          Racism will suffice on the description front. Narcissism of small differences would be a suitable option too.

      Sad but true.

      And if you were to call the cops, they wouldn’t even bother to show up. I’m speaking from experience.

      • Anonymous says:

        What do you expect from our cops who make up 75% of our force..who will not arrest their own people because of their similar culture…

      If your children are emotionally scarred by the experience, you need do be mindful of how you handle it.
