I am sorry to read about another life lost to violence. It is my hope that Dames and his peoples time voters , and the press will accept that murders have nothing to do with political parties. It is also my hope that they know this, and they are just playing those who can not think for themselves as fools.

It was the PLP who first politicized crime. Don't be sanctimonious birdiestrachan.

Now these guys are one step ahead to being kingpins in the Bahamas. Gangland Bahamas - 100,000 points, Law Enforcement - 0

The police force needs to set the gangs up against each other so they can kill off respective gang members then arrest the remaining few, slam dunk them in jail and 85% of the crime issues would simply evaporate overnight. It is no point in jailing these brain dead clowns because they have no remorse or respect for human life so let them kill themselves off and deal with the remaining few with 100,200,300 yr jail sentences then there will be no more recruiting etc for more criminal activity. Get rid of the few who are causing issues and let society return to peacefull living !
