Where is Tal Russell these days?

I guess the thinking person now knows crime is not and won't be a PLP or FNM problem.

Crime is a Bahamian problem..we need to find out why we been breeding criminals since the early 1980's. Cant wait till these persons reach 17, 18 and start robbing and killing to fix the problem...too many radio stations spewing garbage 24/7...no food for the soul.. add to that the internet and the drug and the gun culture...No Parental control..the problem is too big for the police to handle too many dead bodies..too many lives being snuffed out.....Where is GOD in all of this? " If my people who are called by my name shall HUMBLE themselves and PRAY..then shal I hear from heaven and heal their land"...Hubert tried to fix it and Perry may try but there is someone who CAN fix it.. National Day of prayer... call on the churches to anoint all the school children and drive the demons of destruction from this land ..John 3:16

I say bring back the cat o' nine tail, hanging by the neck until dead, coupled with a brutal agracultural chain gang reward irrespective of your secret order or political affiliations. Place such brutes being in a few island penetenrys, where all convicted criminals work for their living or die, from sunrise to sunset.

Would honorable and good gentlemen play politics with crime and criminals who disfigure the lives of our citizens? Or would they bring crime to screeching halt and thereby squash the fear based supposed greater need for more police officers, whilst we are on our way to a becoming a police or military state lead by the biggest educated criminals? MMMMMMnnnnn?
