As well as the armed robberies and home invasions, not to mention the gun smuggling. And it seems Bahamians are not thinking this through. You cannot simply order an entire island or even entire section of island not to move in their own country. It is illegal and unconstitutional outside of certain other actions in law happening first. We have no curfew laws on the books, and such laws would not be enforceable anyway. But still, why wont the government bring their plans to Parliament to make them legal instead of continuing this autocratic practice of seeking to make laws in front of media microphones? And then what does a curfew do to get the criminals off the streets? And you cannot impose a curfew indefinitely. But for most Bahamians, all we need is a show and a performance. Things don't actually have to work or even make sense, they just need to satisfy the form over substance requirement.

HELL NO! If this country introduces a curfew I would be out of here faster than lightening!

By the way, this polls shows that the majority of people who live in the Bahamas are enslaved.

My civil liberties are already trampled on sufficiently by the criminal element, why add salt to the wounds by adding more asinine government anarchy. What is it going to be next, shoot me on sight if I'm not tucked into bed by ten o'clock? Once THAT particular Pandora's Box is opened where will the erosion of the rest of our liberties stop?

Exactly. But only the voices of reason are putting forward this entirely reasonable and correct position. Others with political or otherwise personal agendas do not care what the end result is, so long as they can look a certain way to a certain group for a certain period of time.

Roadblocks are ok in 'troubled' areas I suppose? However I think most of us already curfew our nightlife and have for years!

And Tourists will Freak the F*%# out if we have curfews! (Golden Goose will die)

Think about it would YOU go on VACATION to a place with a curfew!??? !!!
