    Why do we allow criminals to rob businesses? Was a time when I was a kid, that crook would be all banged up and the police would be presenting him to the hospital for patching up. They would patch him up and the next week or two, he’d be before the magistrate, who would send him right to jail.

    What has changed and why?

    In the world of “rock, paper, scissors”, rock beats scissors. In the real world, an axe handle trumps a machete. I formally advise every business to have an axe handle handy, because guess what, Skippy, your government, nor the RCIPS can save you. Nope. They can only respond to the event after the fact. Nothing against the RCIPS. This is just reality. Mr. Thumpy Stick almost always prevails against a machete. Just sayin’

    Find him, arrest him, spend millions on the prosecution and the trial. Then a Caymanian jury will “feel bad” for him and let him walk. Next.
