      What we need is for people to keep their no good children home! How about that ?

        While I agree that parenting is lacking, especially due to the number of “babies making babies” in the modern world, it’s important to note that we don’t pay those people to keep their children home, but we *do* pay the police to keep our island safe.

        The least they can do is patrol habitually-problematic areas and pretend like they are of some use (as opposed to “allegedly” directly involved with the crime, which is growing increasingly evident).

    We really need to have police patrolling and walking on Seven Mile Beach 24 hours a day.

    A single killing on the beach will do huge damage to our tourism sector.

      Had a few last year, and a manhunt with automatic weapons! There was an assassination yards from the Governor’s 24/7 guardhouse, and by a bank with CCTV. Nobody saw anything. The related event at “Safehaven” marina was approved again this year, without planning notice to surrounding residential, and with another predictable violent incident this year.

      I honestly believe it’s too late. I am a Canadian who first visited Grand Cayman in 1973 as a young person and was considering buying a place there for winter vacations. That thought is now gone after seeing what is going on in Grand Cayman. It is so very sad to see. I came every year because it is a lovely country with beautiful beaches and felt safe. Not anymore.

        Oh, please. You’re more likely to get killed by a moose back home than you are to get harmed by a criminal in Cayman.

        Besides, how were you hoping this came across? “Wealthy foreign snowbird decides not to purchase vacation home (that is to say, a tax-free AirBNB 95% of the time, where no income stays on the island), and will not contribute to overinflation of rental market in a severely over-crowded territory”.

        All the best for the new year though.
