This is a PLP power grab. Nothing more, nothing less. The only thing this will be used for is to protect the PLP from those who don't think PLP. So, unless you are brain washed PLP, oppose this bill.
Hard to say, while it is technically an effective tool to fight crime, it's hard to trust this administration or this AG. They do not have the political capital leverage for this bill, it will be extremely unpopular. Also, the timing is excruciatingly poor. You had 5 flipping years to pass this if it was so important. Why have the waited until right before the election? It's too suspicious and this administration is too untrustworthy.
It's sad really.
Agreed. If it's suppose to fight crime you would think the PLP would've passed it the first year in office. More importantly, how is it helping the people right now.. The Bahamas does not need a 5-10 year plan, we need impactful changes now.
They're just following the well worn path towards tools for political persecution and totalitarian Governance, easily accomplished when you can target political opposition, enemies of the party (note I said party, not state) and anyone else you don't like.
The press should be absolutely screaming and railing against this, as should every right thinking private citizen.
The road they're intent on is almost impossible to come back from or survive.
