Good job Police! You're on a roll - keep it up. Show the Country and the world that crime will not be tolerated. You do crime, you do the time and that's if the Police don't put an end to your life before you get to jail.

Put aside the useless court system and the political pressure, and do the right thing - do what you signed up to do - to serve and protect the country, its citizens and visitors from the thugs!

Hope he is questioned thoroughly about where he got this gun from. True investigative work needed and let's where, and who, it leads to.

Tribune, can you find out why this animal was brandishing an assault weapon? Was it robbery, drug related, girlfriend problems...etc.

Does the average Bahamian understand what damage these AK-47 assault rifles can do???? Who is responsible for this most serious crime against the state (treason) .......... importation/trafficking of these guns ................ these people should be locked up for life without parole.

Well done to these officers who put their lives on the line to apprehend this heavily armed thug. Now watch how inefficiently the criminal justice system deals with him.
