Police urge driver caution as kids trick-or-treat

| 31/10/2017 | 25 Comments

(CNS): Drivers are being asked to take extra care on the roads this evening and look out for children walking on the roadways as they enjoy Halloween trick-or-treating across the Cayman Islands. Webster’s Estates and Savannah were singled out by police as areas where motorists should be especially cautious. Parents are also reminded that they need to “retain proper control of their children so that they do not venture onto the roadway and put themselves at risk”, as they escort young children out in the community.

Police are also recommending people wear reflective clothing or carry lights or torches of some kind in order to be seen by motorists. The police will also like to remind members of the public that damage to property and disorderly conduct is an offense in the Cayman Islands and that anyone vandalizing or damaging property tomorrow night will be dealt with as on any other night, the police said, before wishing everyone a safe and fun Halloween.

      Police warning against traffic ! They should warn people against being robbed and securing their properties whilst out tricking/treating with their kids! This is just reality!

    There is a muslim saying, “whoever resembles a person is from them.” This statement prohibits a person from imitating a kuffar or an evil spirit. Parents are prohibited from dressing their children up to deliberately glorify evil or instill fear.

    Of course one may reason that its no harm done to merely dress up in customes like its done during Pirates Week, Batabano, and other festivals. However, one thing leads after the next, and with Halloween, young people like to pretend to have magical powers, dabble in witchcraft and casting spells. People can easily develop a belief in these things.

    The Jewish scriptures declares that we should never consult spirits of the dead or dabble in magic, witchcraft, or occult practices, because it is a form of idolatry, against putting other things in place of your relationship with the Creator.

      I read Harry Potter. It seemed about as realistic as the Jesus Zombie story and the Old Testament magic stuff.

      Also custom – dress up as an evil spirit the night before all souls day so that the evil spirits don’t enter your body….if you are not dressed up, the evil spirits will get you! 😉

    Where do you see in Cayman, our school children go house-to-house, dressed up, walking alongside our roads in pitch darkness? No no, not here. As far as I know most Caymanians don’t celebrate Halloween.

    I find the American/UK cultured, trick-or-treat practice a dangerous celebration. And I’m not referring to religious reasons, but social ones. Perverts and thugs have used this event as an opportunity to commit all manner of crimes ?

    Sorry to crash in on the fun, but just watch and see the turn out tonight. Streets are usually quiet and children are in their homes where they are suppose to be?

        O pleeeeeze ! Youre not talkin bout one lil neighborhood in savannah. You are truly naive. 90 percent of folk on this rock dont celebrate haloween! I dare you try send your kid to dog city, swamp, rock hole or windsor park tonight. Its not even celebrated in the capital george town. Many they’il get a few candies at dart land ?

          Why would anyone send their kids to those places if they know they are not safe? Duh, obviously parents will go where they know the trick or treating is happening. And what does “I dare you” prove? I hope you are not a parent.

    • Diogenes says:

      The nutjobs will be out in force patrolling the streets to make sure your kids don’t break the laws of God, fear not good citizens!!!!

      Unison will save you from….

      costumes and candies

      There are more perverts and thugs found in church on Sundays (or Saturdays) than there are on Halloween night. I bet you !

    I love when the fat mothers drive their kids around door to door in SUVs when trick or treating. People there is a reason you are fat, try walking.

    Funnily enough, ever since I gave a bunch of kids loads of candy and said “eat sugar and die” I never get bothered…wonder why? Seriously stay safe kids…parents, do your duty…keep your eyes on them and not on your G+T.

    • Concerned says:

      Remember years ago it was a pleasure to send or take your kids to trick/treat. Now with upsurge in crime you have to be soooooo careful! Remember there ‘s a commentary right now advising people to properly secure your property. Now I hope these scumbags dont use this opportunity to break into peoples’ homes whilst there out triclkle treating wilth their kids. It’s a shame Cayman has come to this. Paradise has lost!

        Everyone should also be mindful of criminals dressing up like trick or treaters to get access in your home. They have been doing that in the U.S. for years, and everyone knows how we are addicted to things American.” Things have surely changed on this Rock. So sad
