    Before we get all paranoid. When last was a robbery reported in the news? Cayman is still the safest place to be, crime or Covid. Disbelieve me- check the Caribbean news or Global news, including UK.

      But if you do get caught or grassed up 10 years for the firearm, and for what – a cell phone and the cash in the victims wallet?

      • Anonymous says:

        These victims are targeted, they are carrying a lot more than just the cash in their wallets and a cell phone.

        These people are desperate. That’s 10 years free rent and food in Northward Hotel with no hard labor.

        Win/win for the criminals while we pay for it.

    CNS If you see more nutty comments than usual it’s the quarantiners trying to pass the time to avoid going crazy with boredom.

    Obviously the perpetrator was a professional, that’s the best way to escape from the police.

    And so it begins…People are starting to get desperate for money. 1000 stipend a month from government is not enough to survive in Cayman. Open the borders and let people go back to work. Following CDC guidelines can help not spread the virus

      Yeah it was fun not working for a while but stipend and pension payout gone now.

      Don’t care, I’d be homeless and broke before I’d rather people. Lock them up.

      I’m happy to accept a tarp to live under for a stipend.

      3;33 pm, your are crazy, open the borders and Cayman will get a surge of the C-virus and another lock down, I wonder if you have enough sense to know what another lock down will do

      Your momma ought to have slapped you really hard on the side of your head to knock some of that stupidity out of you. Obviously she did not. There’s been plenty who went hungry and did not go buying guns and sticking up people you big Moron!
