(CNS): Detectives investigating a shooting outside the Vine and Tap bar on Printers Way, George Town, on Saturday, 23 December, are “strongly appealing” for witnesses to come forward. In yet another case where a significant number of people were said to be present at the time of the crime, the police are urging the public to help them identify the shooter. One man was shot multiple times but managed to avoid any life-threatening injuries.

Anyone who was at the scene at around 1:50am that morning or who may have any information is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to caymancrimestoppers.com.

    No secret this crime is imported from Jamaica. Very ironic because everyone Jamaican I’ve spoken say they moved to Cayman to get away from the crime there. Why leave there and come here if you’re going to continue down the same path? They should look at Cayman as a fresh start. Real shame honestly. Wish the RCIPS and Border Control would do more to keep our islands safe.

    Who is going to trust RCIPS with their anonymity and family’s safety when we can’t even trust them to brethalyse their bredrin when they crash into street lights late at night. When the corruption is that blatant they have lost control.

      You could use this application who maintain the users anonymity and pass the information to RCIPS. So RCIPS can’t track any digital footprint (IPaddress or other) and don’t get the personal details of the sender. What both sides do get, is a messaging system so theycan then ‘chat’ over it to establish the veracity of the information. And it is all encrypted to protect the information.

      Thats why they need to keep Bananas, Cotton Club etc open. If they shut down these bars, they will just find another good bar and ruin that.

    The information around this is really sketchy and suspiscious, this is to my knowledge quite a friendly plave. The fact that the venue has felt the need to sponsor a statement on social media putting their perspective on it speaks volumes.

    We the public should be demanding that the police, the governor and the ministry responsible for public safety tell us what they are doing to address the increase in violent crime. Its one thing to say that you are “strongly appealing” to the public to come forward when something happens, but what are YOU doing to keep these crimes from happening? Clearly, not enough. Obviously, there are challenges with policing a small country. People are afraid to come forward because they fear retribution. But we’ve known this for decades so what are the authorities doing to overcome these challenges? Have they partnered with other small nations that have figured out how to do policing right? Are they bringing in experts to advise them on how to handle these challenges? The crime problem has escalated to the point where it requires serious national attention. We need to be throwing whatever resources and expertise that we can at this. The current way of doing things is clearly not working, so what are the authorities going to do about it??

    So now, two violent bars across from each other?

    If they want people to come forward they need to come out and say how they plan to protect said witnesses. I’m sure that’s a big reason why people stay quiet. Court cases are also known to drag out years, the inconvenience alone will discourage people from coming forward.

    People always urging the police to do something, yet no one willing to come forward when something needs to be done.

      Wonder why that is?

        CNS, can you ask the RCIPS & the government why licenses aren’t being revoked for these bars?? Vibe & tap, bananas, etc. So many violent crimes & nothing being done about it. CLOSE THEM DOWN.
