  1. Thank God, the long awaited wrist bands are now in play and the police and the monitors of the system would be able to track these scum bag idiots who are of no use to the Bahamas and are only a disgrace to the law abiding great Bahamian people and the Bahamas as a whole

  2. BP

    There’s no info on the persons arrested for drugs of Cuba and the ones going to Miami over the weekend.
    Can you find out?

  3. All this violent crime happening and you see nervous Tommy at the Mall showing Bahamians how they can be safe if they just take these precautions! If i saw him i would slap him. We have serious crime problems that cant be solved by ourselves unless we lock up our houses, ‘weapon up’ and become vigilantes! People scared to leave their houses, scared to go out at night, scared to go home, scared to sleep, scared to go to public functions, and Tommy talking about what WE can do to protect ourselves? Those safeguards and precautions are for people living in a fairly secure society, but we have rampant crime at every corner.Lyford Cay and Eastern Road aint safe, and Tommy grinning like these simple suggestions will help US? How out of touch are they? I so glad I didn’t vote for them, but I still stuck because the masses believed that they had ‘changed’. Please Bahamian voter, VOTE THEM OUT!

    • I agree with you Donna 100%we are sick and tired of talks and studies about crime Stevie Wonder can see we have a drastic crime problem and tommy goes to the mall bullskating,give the police the ultimate power untie the Commissioners hand and the police can clean this country up starting with illegal firearms amend the law if you are caught no trial five years you see how quick the gun crimes will decrease.
