One person clearly not wearing a mask 😷, nothing to see here though let's just harass everyone else. Closed the year with 2 murders and started the year with 1. Waits for dimwit dames and Buffon commissioner to pat themselves on the back for a job well done.

Rip to those whom lost their lives

Before the usual group or morons start downing Bahamians for the uptick in crime, let's be clear that the increase in crime during COVID is not unique to the Bahamas!

Across the great U.S. crime has increased over 52%. In New York City, the number of people shot so far this year skyrocketed by 103%, with 1,855 victims in 2020 compared to the 914 year over year as of Dec. 27, statistics show. The number of shooting incidents also jumped from 769 last year to 1,518 so far in 2020 – a 97.4% spike. Chicago "the murder capital of America" was always off the charts also saw a 56% crime increase.

Higher unemployment due to COVID translated to higher crime rates. Realistically, crime should be expected to get even worse until the economy rebounds and more people can go back to earning a living.

WDF cares about whats happening in the US or elsewhere right now? I live HERE and the violence HERE is RIDICULOUS. For gods sake let's stop observing other people, deflecting, taking credit for nothing and start solving our problems.

Seems like 2021 will be a continuation of 2020. In many ways.

Button-down My Comrades, the month of January 2021, done shaping be how best duck from the criminally-minded - along with the UK novel strain what is now known as SARS-CoV-2 - brungin' you harm. Becoming harder to know whom or on what authority to trust - where is safe and not safe- when even the Chief Royal Constabulary is an acknowledged peddler of misleading info.Shakehead a quick once for upyeahvote, a slow twice for not?
