<<< Sheanda Newton the 18-year-old mother of an infant son, was murdered on Charles Saunders High Way, in Nassau Bahamas in 2008. The murderer cut her throat and threw her body in the bushes. The big question is this, WHERE IS THE MURDERER TODAY? Perhaps somewhere on bail lurking for his next victim. BOY I TELL YA THIS ONE MURDEROUS TOWN. Cain’s children are multiplying in the earth and the government is paralyzed to do anything.

    I am truly dismayed by the steep escalation of crime (especially murder) that is taking place in my beloved homeland. Further, I find it difficult to understand how Minister (Hon) Turnquest has not been fired as yet. In my view,this Minister is not capable of handling the job. His incompetence is simply astounding.
    The irony is though, before the last general election, Tommy castigated the former Horonourable Minister (Mother Pratt) for being soft on crime, and claimed he had all the answers to eliminate this “scourge” that is destroying our society. What a crock!!!!! Seems as though someone has changed all the questions, because the man is clueless: This failed Minister has no shame or credibility left!!! Anyone whose performance in any area of life happened to be as low as Tommy’s, would be asked to resign or be fired post haste. Minister, please go!!!
    Mr. Desisive (Hubert Ingram), now is the time to be desisive and find someone who has the vision and ability to stop this murderous outrage that is getting worse day by day.
    You know Tommy is a waste of time and money. Get rid of Tommy NOW for Christ’s sake and the sake of the Bahamain people. How many more lives must be lost before something is done about this sorry situation. Enough is enough.
