I really wish the Tribune would stop posting these constant crime reports. Aren't there any positive stories to report regarding our young people??? Aren't some of our youth engaged in acts that are uplifting to our community??? We have alot of young men and women doing great things in our country! Lets focus on them! Not crime ridden stories.

Im happy they do report them. When in 2013 Nassau is in the top 3 for murders in the Caribbean it helps me decide where I will spend my next vacation.
Them not reporting it, and you not wanting to hear it does not make it go away.

If you want to know where to spend your next vacation and security is a major concern for you, then all you have to do is log on to the US Department of Justice and Homeland Security Travel Alert System. There is sufficient and organized information available there to satisfy your quarries no matter what part of the world you are considering. The constant plastering of gun violence and murder by the media only amplifies and glorifies criminal activity. The truth is.... Bahamians have become so negative minded that we now crave bad news. I'm guessing that this is why the tribune continues to sell these types of stories. Supply and demand. Negative news for a negative people. Smh.

Not Long before his death Dr. Miles Munroe sent a clear message to the prime minister of this country telling him that he (Perry Christie) as prime minister, must take the lead on the fight against crime. In other words Perry Christie must stop being a coward and lead his government to do what needs to be done to bring crime under control. MURDER especially! Since then little has been done or said by the government and with three days to go the Bahamas has already recorded the bloodiest year in its modern history. Even if you, as a government, do not believe in the death penalty, how can you justify having more than 80 percent of the people who commit murder roam the streets freely? How can you justify a 5% conviction rate for murder and a the same time say that you are serious about stamping it out? The records show that many persons who kill will kill again and even after the second time, and eventually they themselves will be killed. The bible also teaches us that if you leave murderers in society murder will become common place. Many persons who kill are also strung out on drugs, so they have no remorse r no conscience. when Dr. Miles Munroe told the prime minister to stop being a coward and take the lead on Crime he was repeating what Jesus Christ said just before he too left this earth. In John 14:27 Christ says. "Peace I leave with you: my peace I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled nor let it be afraid". Christ has already overcome the wickedness of this world. Don't not be a coward and stand up against wickedness.
