    Get use to the doughnut economy, Cayman. Like every other country heading for the crapper, Cayman is becoming just another country of very rich and very poor as immigration dismisses working middle income people. Crime, gated communities, teen pregnancies, check, check, check.

      Cayman already had that years ago because of Jamaicans. Just end Jamaica construction work permits

        Thanks for the suggestion,3:58. And precisely who is going to do the necessary manual labor jobs done by Jamaicans on the island? Certainly not these lazy assed Caymanian youths you see sitting around drinking beer and smoking weed in the shade and complaining because the foreigners are taking all their jobs.

        End Jamaican work permits? If that happens there won’t be anyone here to take the jobs offered. It’s no secret that Caymanian “businesses” like workers who work…… so they prefer Jamaicans. And what about wages? If they can get a good worker for $8, why pay more? Younger Caymanians have no desire to work unless they get enough to live an easy life,
        and sometimes that isn’t enough.

    Bring back capital punishment, then you will see crime drop rapidly!!!

      How come? Crime never dropped in countries with capital punishment in the past and it still doesn’t stop Americans from killing each other in huge numbers every year.

    I’m not going to be surprised if the Criminal Investigations Dept after having investigated ‘a shooting at a yard in Birch Tree Hill, West Bay, during the early hours of Thursday morning in which one man was shot in the leg and a dog was shot and killed.’ come back and say ‘the first shot was fired by the dog’.

      Birch Tree Hill is a Caymanian stronghold and the loyal voter base for MP for West Bay West.

        01 @ 10:09am – Really?! How can a resident of Birch Tree Hill legally vote in WBW? Please explain to the public!

        BTW, Birch Tree Hill has a LARGE population of nationals from our island nation neighbour to the East.

      Are you just trolling or do you genuinely believe we Caymanians don’t commit serious, violent crime, 7:51?

        Obviously he thinks Caymanians are so hopeless at crime as with so many other other things that they have to bring in expats to do it.
