DNA Candidate Marches in Support of Papa’s Crime Bills?

According to Rodney Moncur, DNA Candidate for Bain and Grants Town, Papa, Tommy and himself recently were in a meeting discussing Bahamas Press. Why would Papa's only appointed Justice of the Peace of 2011 and DNA candidate be discussing BP? Are we a National Security Threat? File Photo

Nassau, Bahamas – Our suspicions all along were true and what will take place on October 5th – this coming week – proves the DNA and the FNM will form a political alliance before the next general elections.

Hubert Ingraham proposes to table in the House on that day, a number of crime fighting bills, in an attempt to curb the violence erupting throughout the society. No information has yet leaked to the press as to what the draft bills will look like, nor has anyone in Parliament seen the drafts. But whatever the big secret is, the DNA candidate for Bain and Grants Town is already rallying support for Papa and the FNM.

Just after midnight the DNA candidate posted on the social network facebook:

“THE PRIME MINISTER IS EXPECTED TO TABLE A NUMBER OF CRIME FIGHTING BILLS TO MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR PERSONS CHARGED WITH MURDER OBTAINING BAIL AND TO ALLOW CAPITAL PUNISHMENT TO BE ENFORCED. FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF MURDERED 11-YEAR-OLD MARCO ARCHER WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE MARCH.”

Remember now, no member of the press nor has any opposition MPs seen any draft to the proposed crime bills, but by some surprise, Papa’s Justice of the Peace is stirring up support for the FNM.

Could Moncur be lending support to the FNM, which has plummeted lately, to show the public Hubert Ingraham is attempting to do something? These days even Blind Blake could see the FNM is set to be fired by the Bahamian people!

Ingraham’s proposals to fight crime proves to be a abysmal failure this time around, so what makes anyone believe this big tabling of a draft and marching supporters into Bay Street would change anything now? The DNA and Moncur must think the Bahamian people are fooled and here’s what we mean.

The fact of the matter is, a Parliamentary Select Committee on Crime submitted its recommendations to the Parliament over one year and seven months ago, and the Ingraham government never acted on its recommendations. Since that report was presented to the House, more than 160 residents have lost their lives at the hand of another, while the Ingraham government sat like the paralytic man at the pool of Bethesda waiting for the troubling of the water.

Readers would also remember as far back as March 2008 a Crime Symposium was held at the Prison to find solutions to the vexing crime problem plaguing the country back then. Whatever proposals were submitted, we don’t know, however, what we do know is this, the problem has gotten worse!

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham will get rallying support at the opening of Parliament from the DNA Candidate.

Another Symposium was called for the Coral Harbour community hosted by the RBPF. The event was announced in January 2011 when the murder rate was less than 5 for the year. Since that event, more homes have been broken into, more cars jacked, more women rapped, children kidnapped, more residents assaulted and the highest ever murder rate has been recorded, and the problem has gotten worse!

Again, in April of 2007, another National Crime Symposium was held at the Wyndham Nassau Resort Hotel in the Grand Ball Room. Government leaders along with church and civic partners attended the one-day event to solve the crime crisis, which back then gripped the nation like the dengue.

The Hall Report followed that event, while the dusty shelves housed the Gomez Report along with countless others with nothing ever done. GREAT PR ON PAPER! What a WASTE OF THE PUBLIC’S TIME!

So what makes Moncur and the DNA believe Papa has a plan now when he showed none while in power for 15 years? What makes them think this new cloud of smoke and mirror rapped up in some magnum condom pack will protect the Outgoing FNM from defeat? Or as we like to say, the UNHOLY VICIOUS ‘CUT YINNER KNOW WHAT’ from the Bahamain people.

What makes this whole thought of marching worse is this; the roads are all dig up across New Providence, the ones that are paved BEC now say it has to dig them up again. The traffic routes into Nassau City are few and jammed at 8AM. Blue Hill Road North is closed to traffic. Cars coming down West Bay Street snarls and meanders into the city like a sail crossing the desert, and some DNA/Papa group of supporters wants to march into Bay Street to praise the FNM’s late again crime bills?

Boy, ‘yinner’ really want to make BP cuss in seven languages today.

  1. All of this really concerns me. Why do we as Bahamians always resort to blaming politics. At this point it should not matter who passes the bill but if it will be passed. I like what REBUT said, it is time for us to unite and do what is good for our country and stop blaming politics. So WHAT if elections are near, so WHAT if it’s the FNM so WHAT if you feel it’s political mileage. Is it what we need??? YES!!! SO LET’S UNITE AND GET IT DONE

  2. “Hey silly wabbit, tricks are for kids!” That’s my line lol 🙂

    The bills are something that all political entities can agree on. But come to think of it, why would defense lawyers support such a bill?

    The small man like you and me are getting killed from crime, but the crafty lawyers are thinking of ways to get the killers bail with the stroke of a pen. I don’t think this one would sit well with those high profile wig wearing attorneys who now sit as defacto, potential candidates to lead this country. Imagine that!

    It’s all a game, all a ploy. A few months before a national election, with all due respect, n**** please!

  3. BP I am suprised that an incident happened earlier today shortly after 11am on First Street the Grove where somebody got shot and possibly killed. It was not reported in the media but there was definitely a shooting today.

  4. Have you readers not realized yet that BP is nothing more than a biased, PLP-Driven Propaganda machine? Yes BP does report “News” but it is quite slanted!!!!

    • FunkyNassau , it has been four years now and you have not moved one line from the same ole suggestion that we are a PLP -driven Propaganda machine. Let move on from the point or should we just begin deleting everyone who suggest this line? The point is weak and stale now! We support the PLP you and the Tribune the FNM, so what’s the point?

      BP

  5. Utter foolishness BP!!
    The last thing this country need is another reason to be divided. what can possibly be in a crime bill that will not draw the support of a crime weary nation. can it be that people should not support it because one party brought it to parliament and not the other.

    Man get a dag-gannit life. we need help, from any and all quaters, and if marching through the streets will help, then I say March On Bahama Land!

  6. BP………what is so wrong with Mr. Moncur lending his support to another political party? The whole point of the march is to unify each and every Bahamian because we all have been affected by crime this past year. It’s this same need to try and divide each party which will continue to trickle down into each home and divide each Bahamian. Instead of trying to create a division BP why don’t you try to create some unity…..dats my 5 cents!!!

  7. Come on now BP. While the FNM made many mistakes, this should not be made a political issue at this point. The amount of family members and friends, church members, classmates and teachers who lost loved ones this year, or those they had hope in who are now murderers, that are suffering from the heightened level of crime should not be exposed to this. If the people choose to cast out PM Ingraham and his government, then that decision will be made at the polls. Until then, let us continue to support the good that frees us and reject the bad that ruins us.One people united under God!

  9. TRUST ME ITS TOO LATE FOR PAPA AND HIS TIRED SELF. TRYING TO IMPLEMENT THAT BILL NOW JUST MONTHS BEFORE ELECTION IS CALLED IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW SNEAKY HE IS. YES I DO FEEL THE BILL NEEDS TO BE IMPLEMENTED BUT WHY NOW PAPA, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO GET THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE TO VOTE YOU BACK IN. I THINK NOT. SILLY RABBIT, TRICKS ARE FOR KIDS
