    My empathy to the victim.
    It is appears,based on the daily news, that this country has the highest concentration of mentally deviated and violent people. From corruption to child abuse and rapes, from assaults to burglaries and thefts, from animal cruelty to drugs smuggling, the number of criminal acts being committed is midnight blowing.
    The question is why? Who are they? Where were they raised? When their innocence was replaced with wicked minds? Is it a sign of degeneration of humans as a species, or is it a local fenomen?

      Anonymous 8:07……. In answer to your questions: It is the “original Caymanians” with the addition of assorted people who have come here. The main reasons for the decline in sociability and increase of crime is poor parenting through the years, television, sub-standard schooling, drugs and alcohol, and the internet. Unfortunately, it is about the same in most other “civilized” countries..

      8:07am , You have heard of the expression , you get what you pay for. Meaning if you buy something that is cheap and no good that’s what you get .
      I think that your questions should have been directed to the Government rather than to the public . Those questions should have been asked by Immigration before you got permission to inhabit the Islands .

        Strange that almost all of the crime is committed by established Caymanians, yet the ex-pats somehow always gets the blame. May be if people stopped looking the wrong way they would pick up a mirror and see the cause looking back at them.

    I have never seen any police presence on Eastern Avenue, despite this being a place of less than stellar reputation. Immigration would also do good to pay some of those questionable establishments a visit.

      I’d rather the police stayed around the expensive areas to protect the non-criminals from the criminals.
