    Poverty breeds crime,but also does prosperity. Years ago when the mothers stayed at home to rear the kids and the fathers went to work we had better children. Now both are working while our kids are being raised by all sorts of people. They usually deliver them as babes in the hospital, they take care of them at home, they teach them at school, they usually interview the whenever they apply for a job, when they mess up they are picked up by the cops, when they go to Court they are sent to prison and while in prison who look after them? so what all the fuss is about ?

      I grew up in a communist country where both parents were working. There were practically no crime. There were may be 2 tv channels and a radio that reported no bad news. Our young minds were spared from the ills of the world. We grew up worrying about nothing. Everyone had a roof over his head and a food on its table. When you don’t need much you have everything. We were left to our own devices in terms of entertainment. All activities were free, from music schools to swimming lessons and ballet classes. It wasn’t our parents duty to entertain us or become our chauffeurs. There were no bullying at school, no ADD or other “ modern” mind disorders. Our minds were not bombarded by propaganda as many believe. We turned out just fine.
      Today’s youth is spoiled by parents from birth and grow up with a sense of entitlement.

        Correct. All of the talented Caymanians are employed in high positions in the private sector and have no interest in running the country. Unfortunately all we get to choose from is corrupt greedy fools who couldn’t get a decent job in the private sector.

    None of us are safe unless and until the thugs are off our streets. Two constant figures over the last nearly 20 years as things have spiraled out of control are the Attorney General and the Director of Public Prosecutions. They have advised multiple governments on their approaches to violent crime and the prosecution of if. Not saying they are to blame but perhaps advisors and prosecutors who fail to get violent criminals off our streets should find ‘other opportunities’.

      The Director of the DPP is relatively new, the AG has been there for a while though, but still nowhere near 20 years
      I think by now the general public is familiar with the woes of prosecution on these islands it also includes the police force, prosecutors can only use the evidence in relation to a crime if it is found,admissible and was handled responsibly. As we saw with one of the last high profile sexual offence cases, the police did not follow up with witnesses and accusers in the way they should have which left inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case which allowed the person to beat the charges.
      Finding reliable and willing witnesses, collecting and properly handling evidence, building the necessary legal case to ensure conviction. A crime can be open and shut in the court of public opinion but a simple police or prosecutorial mishap can derail even the most watertight case when they actually get to the scrutiny of a trial by court.
      The vast majority of won cases end up being persons who plea guilty to reduce time or otherwise, winning cases is far more complicated than some realize

      From a legal perspective I think while our services have room for improvement they are not the root cause of the crime, they are symptoms of a larger disease in our community

    These guys live at the top of prospect drive and or top of marina drive, these shite whole families have lived there for years now, the police eknow about them, and at least 1 a month the police are searching these homes.
    What I don’t understand is that the trade and business license board approved a business in one of the homes (the one on prospect drive), these guys sell drugs, commit crimes (all sorts) and now having a business always them to deposit their illegal funds legally now.
    How do we get rid of these people, unfortunately they are now Caymanians, 2 generation, some idiots gave them status in the 80s and ever since they’ve been committing crime.
    As a concerned prospect citizen, with these families living in our area we are screwed.
    The worst thing is that we haven’t heard anything from the MLA for Prospect and of course our Premier (Red Bay is at the end of Prospect Dr.)

      Obviously your NOT a resident of prospect nor Prospect Drive, before you come on here being a Donkey please get your facts straight. But I guess because your hiding behind the computer you can say anything right ? What exactly does this murder have to do with these people house or business? Typical caymanian crab in a bucket.Further more to clarify your false statement, the people who lives there are BORN Caymanians who have lived there for more than 20+ years. A Proud retired civil servant lady I’ve know for years with a trade and business liecense for over 15 years trying to make ends meet, to further clarify you, that store has been on Prospect Drive for 5 plus years, that’s a next reason I can tell you are not a Prospect Resident.

    Yet another criminal on criminal crime. The thugs in Cayman rarely attack innocents (usually bystanders or witnesses), so if there is a murder, if it is not due to domestic violence (eg. family members, spouses, etc.), 9 times out of 10 it is drug or gang related or both.

    Tourists: these types of criminals will not attack you. The ones you need to worry about are the drug users who are desperate for money to get a fix. They may rob someone on the street or break into their rental unit in the middle of the night, but random shootings of tourists are as common as rain in the Sahara desert.

          Not from here originally but been here long enough to know there are majorly troubled youth here. Families are poor because of a lack of proper education. The information in the school system is important to know and schools need to be better at helping individuals more than the group as a whole.

          People get ignored and fall through the cracks. Everyone but them seems to live the good life and they turn to drugs and alcohol like their dads. Sad state of affairs. These kids are growing up stupid and it will end up being a major problem if it is not dealt with on a case by case basis.

        The PPM and CDP collectively have been fooling around and playing government for the better part of the last 20 years passing power around like a peace pipe
        Instead of dealing with issues on these islands their focus is building docks, and putting on shows and photo-ops. People are getting murdered in the streets and our leaders haven’t met in the LA in nearly 4 months, the National Security council has met once since the election
        They don’t have a solution and there is no magical solution, there are mitigating programs we can put into place but even then our leaders would rather fill northward to the brim than actaully handle crime at the root, our people need to be educated and trained so that crime is an after-thought, if you give people the option to make a better life for themselves 99/100 times they will take the opportunity

      Please show me the actions they have taken that justify you claiming this is their main concern?

      The Governor mentioned it like twice in 4 1/2 years and did nothing,
      The Deputy Governor has mentioned it once and has done nothing
      But this is their priority?

    Omg!! Cayman has gone to the dogs!! Definitely not a place to vacation anymore safely. It’s such a crying shame! I loved the place since I moved and worked there in 1980. It never used to be like this back then. Which way are people bringing up their children to act in this nature? Are parents so uneducated these days that they are not teaching them right from wrong? Have school teachers lost the right to reprimand students? Have Social Services lost funding to intervene? I certainly know that the MASH team haven’t got the funding to employ experienced overseas personnel to take them forward and guide them in the right direction. Come in Government stop pansying about, do your job that you are highly paid to do and put services in place to educate these children and free them from getting into this quagmire of crime!!!……this is the reason employers favour overseas educated personnel. You are masters of your own destiny.

      Anonymous 10 : 39am 100% on the head . You need to send this comment to Alden and the other 18 elected officials and tell them to STUDY it very carefully . And tell them that Cayman has gone to the dogs and iguanas under their management and Leadership.
      When you moved to Cayman in the 80s was when them Politicians started to take away the belt and strap from Parents and School Teachers , why we have kids like this today .

        Not true, 11:44. The guy who was shot comes from a crime ridden family and he and his brothers were strapped many times in school and beaten at home. As were most of our well known local criminals including Sheldon, Sven, Shane, Julio, Bryan, Steve etc etc. so your easy answer about the strap, so popular as an explanation by old timers, is totally wrong. It is the sheer unadulterated crappiness of the homes, especially non existent or, even worse, violent parenting, that resulted in the mess we have today. And the teachers back in the day warned about it but………..

            Yes…right about the time our National Hero JMB opened up the floodgates of development and everyone began chasing the dollar at the expense of everything else and at the same time cocaine started flooding in with everything that that brings, including gangs. It has nothing to do with the strap supposedly being taken out of the school and it has, of course, got nothing to do with the current obsession of so many people, namely gay relationships. How many was it again who turned up at the Lions Centre to “stop” gay marriage? Ah, I remember, 3000. Shame on us wasting time on this when the country is being ruined by violent criminals not peaceful gays.

          Anonymous 12:13 pm , when I said them Politicians started to take away the belt and strap . I ment that they started making Laws and regulations against parents and schools and putting non functional departments inplace to deal with situations and they not doing their job, is why we have the problems and the kind of kids we have today . But that is exactly what has happened . When no one is being held accountable for their children or their job , this is the results what you’re seeing today .

        Thank you 11.44am. You are so right! It is the same in the U.K. Since they took away the teachers right to administer the cane to misbehaved children. It went down hill rapidly after that. My niece is a school teacher and she says the amount of abuse she receives frim the youngsters she teaches is unbelievable. They use the “F” word to her as if it’s nothing and she daren’t lay a hand on them. It is obvious with this behaviour that these kids have been dragged up and not brought up from an early age. The Parenting skills are Zero!!
        No respect whatsoever! If u went home and told my parents i had the cane for misbehaving I’d have another clip around the ear. They fear nothing today and buwvoeople wonder what’s gone wrong.

        That’s an excuse. Lame one at that. Some of our best citizens were raised in poverty and didn’t choose a life of crime. I can’t count how many of my friends were poorest of the poor and never even been in any legal trouble.

        You know what is an almost sure thing to breed crime? No parenting and people excusing bad behavior.

      Sir I must say that it seems as if you are looking for a good excuse to seek a job here. Most of our employment is from foreign already. Years ago when we had a paradise it was the uneducated Caymanian as you would have it who taught the kids who raised them to be good citizens etc. It was such a Haven that each and everyone wanted to come here. Stop critizing as crime is world wide. Who you need to blame is your canoe boys who are bringing in the guns and the drugs. It was a dooms day when they introduced it to our shores. sorry for the spelling error of criticing.

    Police are well aware that this is a known problem area and hangout for the “wannabe gangster”. The area needs to have a higher frequency of patrols that are done randomly!
    The bottom line is that the area is a roach motel and needs to be cleaned up or demolished. The owner should be forced to clean the area up (as a matter of fact all of the residents on this street should do same). Roaches do not come to clean areas!
    Take some pride in yourselves and community, this is how you get rid of these rodents!

      Roaches live on every portion of this planet, (excluding Antarctica and the Arctic), you might not see them but they are there

      The difference between the older generations and the newer ones, we acknowledge the roaches are hiding out of sight or below the surface, while you pretend they don’t exist and then scream bloody murder (no offence to the victim, but pun intended) when they show up
      These issues didn’t just spring up out of the blue, they have been bubbling in the periphery for a long time and until Cayman comes to terms with our PRESENT, and lets go of our long gone past we will never be able to solve these problems.

      The solution is not going back to the 1950s Cayman, contrary to what the nostalgic among us would think or say, we need new solutions for new problems

      I don’t know about you, but when I see a roach, I don’t just kill it and say “problem done” I take preventative and precautionary measures (hence I rarely see roaches, yet I do not doubt their existence) A lesson that some on Cayman need to learn, and quickly

    Violent crime has become a daily event and only a tiny percentage of these crimes ever result in a conviction. Even when there is a conviction sentences are ridiculously short and our politicians continue to support the mandatory release of violent criminals after they have served only a fraction of their sentences. We also need to ensure that concurrent sentences end for violent crime. Violent criminals need to serve long solitary sentences for each violent offence not short concurrent sentences with release after a few months no matter how many shootings and other violent crimes they are involved in.

    We need an end to mandatory release of violent criminals, incentives for criminals to turn on each other and a solitary confinement unit in the prison for all violent offenders to keep them away from all other offenders. At the moment the Northward Hilton is nothing more that a university of crime.

      Politicians don’t want to do anything about crime, for they are afraid the criminals family and friends won’t vote for them on voting day and thats all they care about, filling their pockets. Why not have a Government like Singapore with millions of people of different nationals and are nearly crime and drugs free. And remember they don’t put themselves in the L A, we the people votes them in, so we have our selves to blame.

      There are no gun shops in the Cayman Islands. There are no Ganga farms here. Drugs and guns are the criminal culprit. It is common knowledge, that drugs and guns are supplied by Traffickers from next door. Drain the swamp now, or else the swamp will continue to overflow.
      Government get off your asses or out of your arm chairs and act like you have balls. Everyone of you were elected by the people, if you can’t deal with the problems get out of the kitchen. Call for help! Rome is burning, and there is no water in sight.
