Double Murder Rocks the over-the-hill community of East Street this morning

2015

Nassau, Bahamas — A barroom on the corner of Lewis and East Streets is a crime scene at this hour following an early morning double murder in the over-the-hill community.

The incident reports a man had opened fire inside the bar hitting two men multiple times about the body. Both men died on the scene. Sources on the scene tell us other patrons were injured also as bullets sprayed like rain at the waterhole.

Police are looking for suspects in the area at this hour; however, they have no suspects yet. This incident pushes BP’s record of murders to 222nd and 223rd  since 2009, with some 9 cases still unclassified by police for 2011 alone. This latest incident would also reflect the fact that the week we sold BTC, was the bloodiest ever on our streets with some 11 gruesome murders in 8 days.

Just two weeks ago American agencies released from the jails of the US and repatriated some 4,000 criminals serving time for various offenses. Could this bloodbath be the result of this? How man of those criminals were repatriated back to the Bahamas?

  1. I fear that this trend of increasing murders is here to stay. Bahamians are committing genocide against each other. The young men in this country aren’t worth shit, thanks in large part to their ‘aint-shit parents’ who breeding them like rats in the bush by a chicken shack.

    The only way to control crime is to control the breeding of these ‘aint-shit’ persons. Lacking the will to do this, then we need to pray for an earthquake to hit Nassau to take out the garbage for us.

  2. reference to “madashell” and the police Staff Association. Policew officers who work at “side jobs” they are working in their off hours. No police officer works on a “side job” while he is on a shift. These assignments are separate from their regular working hours.

  3. Reference is made to response by DonQ. We ARE an independent and sovereign nation but WE the Bahamian people, Indepedent and sovereign freely chose and agreed in our Constitution (Independence Order 1973) to RETAIN for our final Court of Appeal, the Privy Council in England. The British DID NOT force this upon us WE chose it. Now we are stuck with it and their decisions — even though they may be against our best interests–such as the death penalty. To make a change or to abolish the PC for us requires a REFERENDUM and a constitutional change. Parliament alone CAN NOT do it. The PM cannot do it.
    I support the death penalty.

    Some people say that the government(s) PLP and FNM don’t like to hang people because it costs them votes..dead person’s family, friends etc and that they quickly point to the PC as the reason their hands are tied and unable to hang….so people need to mount a campaign to aqbolish the PC as our final court of Appeal — several other West Indian countries have done it.

  4. I THINK THE POLICE ASSOCIATION SHOULD BE ABOLISH..WHEN EVER YOU NEED POLICE, THEY ON THE SIDE JOB, BRAGGING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY MAKE… IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY FOR THEM..THEY SHOULD DO THE JOB THEY WERE HIRED TO DO.. I STAND TO BE CORRECTED IF AM WORNG FOR SAYING THIS.

    • madashell that killing would have still happen if there was no Police Staff Association are you saying if there was no association the Police would have known that crime would have been committed on that date and time.we need to stop pointing finger and look in the mirror we are on the brink of losing this country we are more into PLP and FNM in this country than anything else. Then there is a large group of you who are anti police and you are the same one that are use on the jury and come with ur mind made up the criminals know this so they dont care. You can get less time for murder than stealing these days.criminals know that too

    • You should have asked tommy that in 2007.
      Tommy Turnqest claimed it is a government problem. Why you didn’t tell the scatter brain that then?

      WE REPORT YINNER DECIDE!

  5. THIS FNM IS LIKE A SPADE DOG CAN’T PRODUCE **** WHEN IT COME TO VISION BAHAMASAIR, BEC, NONE OF THEM COULD TAKE CARE THEY SELF YET THESE DOOCH BAGS THE ONLY ONE WAS MAKING MONEY THEY SELL IT. A BUNCH OF *** HOLES IN COAT SUIT AND FOUR EYE TOMMY LOST. DAMM MORONS.

  6. THE GOVERNMENT IS LIKE A DEAD HORSE NO CLUE NO VISION. THEY STILL SHOCK HOW THEY WIN IN 2007 AND PERRY GOVERNMENT WAS DOING A GOOD JOB I THINK SOME OF THE FNM MINISTER COULD HELP BUT THEY HANDS TIE TO BAD WHEN WE VOTE FOR ONE MAN AND 22 DUMM ASS MINISTER AGEED TO GO DOWN WITH INGRUM. THIS MAN MUST HAVE SELL HIS SOUL FOR ALL THIS CRIME AND MURDER AND HE HAS NOT TURN HIS ATTENTION TO IT. VOODOO IS BLIND THIS IS APART OF HIS OBEAH AGEEMENT PLENTY BLOOD HAVE TO SHED FOR HIM TO BE SUCCESSFUL THESE PEOPLE DONT BELIEVE IN GOD WE ALL NO INGRUM WONT LEARN.

  7. The Government CANNOT hang people without due process of law — a person sentenced to death has the right of appeal to the Privy Council. That appeal can take years. After five years on death row a person cannot be hanged — that is a ruling of the Privy Council – The Bahamas’ highest court of appeal. Thats how our country’s constitution is set up. To change this we need a referendum on changing the constitution. That is a mammoth takes in and of itself. But, the Privy Council in England is the hold up not the government.

    • D Rolle – consider the fact that the Bahamas is an independent and soverign country and NOTHING should allow us to deal with our own affairs.
      The excuses you give are mere excuses and all that is needed is for the Govt. of the Bahamas to CHANGE the existing law. My God if they could do it more turtles in absolutely no time they must could do it to discourage what is going on in this country! Or are we the Bahamian people according to the Foreign National Mess Govt. even less than turtles???

  8. If the Minister of National Security showed as much passion on crime as he did during the debate on the sale of BTC hmmmmmm!!!!!. My bad that debate should have been a criminal offense

  9. When are we going to address crime and the death penalty in The Bahamas??? When it touches the immediate families of the governing party?????

    This is what we should really be protesting about!!! My God this has got to STOP.

    Please God don’t unleash your wrath on us and don’t let the innocent suffer with the guilty.

  10. We must appreciate the efforts by our Police but I ask the question, Just to prove a political accoutrement by the Government is so wrong, their political stance against Urban Renewal could be one where the deterrence to crime just may be vested. Swallow your pride Papa, just like you did about C&W, you said you had a change of mind, Well have a change of heart and try something different, whatever is being done do not appear to be solving the rate of murders. Such circumstances cannot be political take advise follow some direction that was yielding results, ‘STOP BEING A BULL HEADED PERSON” we need to do something and the time is NOW.

    • Well Family Islander why you shouting at us? You forget who is the elected Gov’t eh? And we don’t support them!

      WE DEMAND CHANGE!

      • No, No BP, my concerns are not directed to you, then are directed for the reader to see where the failure’s lie, and it is the Government of Papa who need to wake up and smell the coffee the Country is flooding in BLOOD

    • @concerned

      I suspect that the rise in crime is due largely to an increase in tensions, exascerbated by the decrease of jobs and opporunities to profit, generally.

      Ever notice the difference in responses to aggression by a well-dressed, well-fed person as compared to a hungry person in dirty attire; one is gracious and fogiving, while the disadvantaged person is quick to retaliate with hidden defensive weapons.

      The problem and solution = MONEY!
