Cops hunt shooter in weekend violence

| 12/09/2016 | 46 Comments

(CNS): Police are on the hunt for yet another gunman after a man was shot outside a George Town bar on Sunday night at the end of a weekend marred by firearms incidents. Officers were called to the parking lot of DLK Bar (a.k.a. Dump Road bar) on Seymour Drive, in the industrial area of George Town last night at around 8pm. The 32-year-old victim, who is from George Town, received non-life threatening injuries and he was taken to the George Town hospital by ambulance, where he was treated for his injuries, the RCIPS stated in a release Monday.

Over the weekend there were three other incidents involving guns. There were two separate street robberies in the George Town area on Friday night, in which the muggers were armed with guns. Later the same night police recovered a loaded hand gun from behind a shopping plaza on the West Bay Road after a suspicious individual fled from the scene as police arrived.

Police have taken ten unlicensed firearms off the street so far this year but this does not appear to have brought a reduction in the number of crimes in which firearms are being used.

Anyone who has information or who witnessed the shooting or can help with other offences are asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222 or to remain anonymous to call Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS).

    But wasn’t McKeewa having a sit down with the gangs and bad boys to solve all this about 8 months ago. The silence on its obvious total failure is deafening. Meanwhile the churches are busy hosting anti gay functions. What a joke.

    Anyone wonder how it is that there has been a sudden increase in gun crime and gun seizures in the last few months? Maybe someone has deliberately lifted the lid of Pandora’s box?

    Like I said; strike a deal with Haiti and/or Jamaica and export criminals there to serve the maximum sentence.

    Believe me the little boys doing these crimes and coming in to people’s homes and fluffing up their chests like “bad man” do not have the size wonkas to handle the prison conditions in any of these two countries – guaranteed they will not reoffend (if they survive through their sentence).

    And the little bitty ‘bad-bwoys’ left on-island will think twice (or thrice) before getting involved in gun crime.

    Other perks include – millions saved on criminal housing, decreased prison population, less bloated police force, damn-near crime-free island (and/or criminal-free island), the Gov will get the opportunity to assist other countries that require economic stimulus (since the Premier insisted on shipping out half-million to Dominica, we may as well get something out of our next donation), no more time wasted for friends and family members who are usually “forced” to visit the a-holes while incarcerated and it would save a lot of little children the ridiculous embarrassment of visiting “daddy” behind bars.

    And while we are on that note; I wish they would raise the visiting age for visitors attending the prison to 18 (or at least 16) – the number of people carrying toddlers and children in to that place to see their waste-of-space fathers is ridiculous!

    Where is Bernie Bush and his petition now?

    When the majority of the LA, including the Speaker of the House, would prefer to spend millions of public dollars fighting and loosing legal challenges to the territory’s obligation to recognize and protect same sex unions, or on double-dipping pensions and salaries, or putting suspended colleagues on interminable long term paid vacation – remember that these millions in wasted funds might have been spent on border protection, or drug and prisoner rehab, finishing schools, or on our largely absent mental and social services and that these foregone opportunities would have had far more societal impact on restoring bible-based values and curtailing the problems of the future.

    Let’s make Jamaica pay for the wall.

    Wild wild west a.k.a The Cayman Islands.
    While innocent visitors are being dragged through the court for a bullet in their suitcases, firearms,fully loaded easily find its way on this island surrounded by water and nobody seems to know how. Are they being dropped from the sky?

      No, they are coming by boat from Jamaica and Honduras. This is widely known and understood, but our borders are open.

      • Anonymous says:

        But why they are open? A Law-abiding visitor must go through security twice, get undressed, be searched, his suitcases get screened, eye drops and medication put in a plastic bag, YET the criminals are free to come and go as they pleased.
        Why nothing is being done? It is not like this island the size of Australia. With modern day technology each and every watercraft can be tracked.
        Looks rather retarded to me.

          Don’t know what tracking technology you are referring to that can track a 30ft fibreglass canoe at night operating without a radar reflector or transponder, with a 60 mile coastline. Now more frequent flights by the helicopter, at night, using night vision gear – or even better, invite the US DEA and coast guard to get involved – then you are talking. However previous suggestions of improving Cayman’s active detection of illegal boat traffic or the involvement of the US agencies has always been resisted by certain politicians – wonder why.

      No they are from Jamaica. Stop Jamaicans and 99 percent of the gun crimes will go away.

        What an ignorant fantasy! Many Caymanian youth have embraced the thug life from generations of their own absentee fathers, flash-tempered uncles and alcoholic cousins who were getting in machete fights and cow-cod altercations at domino huts for decades. >80% of Northward can tell you a story of homegrown vengeance.

        That includes stop hiring them as teachers or promoting them to positions where all they can provide is an over relaxed 3rd word education to students who are about to enter into a fierce job market. They have ganged up on so many good teachers that decided to leave and look what we have now in our system. Mob ruled education from teachers from counties that teach broken English to students as a right of passage to say you are authentically from the Caribbean. Put that on your resume and see how far you go.

      This is not exactly Fort Knox…we’ve read of the multitude of ways to get guns here. The demand is fed by far too many twerp Dr Dre’s that have adopted their childhood dreams of criminal careers where having a gun for defensive or offensive power is a vocational reality. All the fashions and trappings of “thug life” should be shunned by society, yet rather they are seemingly revered and respected (even by police) and embraced like we’re some kind of rough-living Portmore or south central LA – with even those in positions of authority and uniformed officers of the CIG tinting out their honda windows and plates and flashing gang gestures on Facebook. Until attitudes change across the board, there will be endless generations of these deadbeats hurting people and behaving like idiots. Recent arrests of immigration, customs and airline personnel and various alarming police breaches demonstrate how pervasive our criminal problems are with a very high rate of recidivism.

    Let’s build a wall around the island.

    There seem to be guns everywhere, how are they getting here?.We need not only the mandatory jail term for possession, but a mandatory extension if the gun owner refuses to say where he got the gun.

    • Anonymous says:

      My best guess would be Jamaica where the drugs are coming from as well. Better marine presence is needed but the RCIPS does not have the resources.

      • Anonymous says:

        Only because the money is otherwise misspent, and/or siphoned-off through decades of entrenched CIG mismanagement.

    Gun violence is out of control but our leaders and churches are fixating on a few queer folk who want to show how much they love each other. What a disgrace!

    Time to clean up the island too many guns around in the hands of young people. Maybe the police need to give a gun amnesty and when that is over anyone found with an unlicensed gun should get 15 for possession and if caught with a gun while committing a crime 30 years, without parole. This should stop these scum bags from terrorising people.
