    The lower the percentage of Caymanians that make up the residency of the Cayman Islands, the higher the rate of societal deterioration.

    If this is progress then please take back your “higher GDP”, expansion of industries, gated communities, “development”, prime real estate, luxury goods and overpriced retailers. We have tipped the scale and are currently regressing.

    Seriously. I will happily embrace a return to the reality of 1996 Cayman.

    – Who

It will all affect us, SOON trust me. I know when I see something I will report it and if In can kick the shit out of one of these thugs I will, and then call the police . WE HAVE TO FIGHT BACK.

    I have lived my entire life in the most dangerous state in America (#1 according to media and statistics). Never ever I felt unsafe or was afraid for my life or property or sleeping with open windows. Here, on 75.68 mi² island with population of 52,000 one have to think twice before going outside after dark, jogging, or keeping windows open.
    Just 8 years ago things were so different.

    Between all the litter lining the road and the garbage that runs rampant on our roads, we are slipping deeper and deeper into 3rd world status…….I wonder how much longer people going to say ” but it is not yet as bad as……”. Wake up! Cayman is just as bad!

      I have been coming to you island for 17 years. I love and respect it. But I am truly sad at the direction it is going. I have not yet said the phrase ( it’s not as bad as) to people who want to go there. I pray I will never have to.

    Are we going to wait until somone is killed before we get tough on crime? 420 cops, cameras all over the place & a chopper for 60k people and yet it’s like the wild west around here!
    I sincerely hope this new Commish lives up to the ‘Tough Irish cop’ reputation.

    It would be easier for the public to assist the RCIPS if sketches and descriptions were provided with these “announcements”.

      HA! Ye, right. That would mean actual “cop work” being done.

      I sincerely hope we all enjoy the good ol’ days we have left; as soon as there’s nothing left to suck out of this economy the U.K will shit us out for good!

      THEN, we will really be the wild wild west!
